Original Coolthaihouse SectionThis is the original content of coolthaihouse that went live on the 20th of April, 2004. The site was created to show information on Dozer's building experiences of building and construction in Thailand. When the house was started there was little or no information on the web other than some foreigners wanting to 'help sort you out'.

Krisida Condo


IMG_0932a.jpg

The extent of this project in early 2006 was to take a darkly painted and tiled condo and loosen it up a bit. The carpet structures in the bedrooms were removed and replaced with synthetic wood flooring, the original textured paint was stripped to the walls and repainted with high quality semi gloss, and the original tiles were removed and replaced.

Kiang Talay Condo


IMG_1043.jpg

This condo was remodeled in just under 4 days prior to the beginning of the 'quiet period' where no remodeling is allowed for 3 months. The working hours in the condo during which any noise can be made are from 11 AM until 4 PM Monday through Friday. Almost everyday at about 3:50PM this crazy german guy (resident only) would come to the room demanding we stop right then and there as his watch said 4 PM. Yes, yes, the tiler is going to be finished in about 5 minutes.... no stop now..... (and some people claim all the crazies end up in Pattaya, I think this was just a coincidence!!) The main thing done in the condo was stripping out the old carpet and wall paper and completely retiling with heavy Granito tiles. The tiles are laid in 'dry pack' fashion with a layer of dry mix concrete put down, the tile set into position and then re picked up and adhesive slurry is applied and the tile is then laid back into its final place.

This project took about 3 weeks and involved stripping the current bathroom down to the bare concrete and totally re finishing it. The floor was flintkoted prior to any new tiles being laid. Wall tiles and floor tiles were laid. The sink was removed and and new undermount sink was installed under a granite counter. Electric control box was installed. The tub was removed and replaced with a custom shower enclosure. An area in the bathroom was plumbed for a washing machine.

Research - Color PigmentColoration of the render coat is impacted by a number of factors - the color of the fine aggregate sand use, the color of the cement, and the amount and ratios of pigment, cement, sand and water used. There several hundred test batches done to ensure the resultant color would match the design. This shows some test batches where color render was applied to cinderblocks.dozer
