House_Plan.jpg
House PlanThe house design is based on Australian home designs from Henley Properties and Simond's Homes. The entrance, study and master bedroom are based on Henley Properties designs, with the rest of the house following design ideas from Simond's Homes.

The area of the house is 250 square metres (including the front porch and rear outdoor area). The quoted price from a builder was 1.7 million baht, however we have decided to manage the project in-family, and are sourcing all the materials ourselves.

Blueprint - Budget: 560,000 bahtClick the pic for a full screen image.
Own design. Quality construction. Contractors' quotes: 1.0 to 1.3 million baht. My DIY: 560,000 baht (materials & labour 2006). This floor plan was later vastly improved at no extra cost to the construction; and we opted for some slightly more expensive extras, taking us about 100,000 over the original budget.

Little Red BrickNot made in this 'factory' but equally indispensable on every building site for small filling work. Some builders still make entire walls with them, particularly in Pattaya, but they work out very expensive and labour intensive per m2. Here they cost 70 Satang each, and it takes about 50% longer to build a wall with them.jazzman55555
