pic of tropical paradiseThis site provides information on building a house in Pattaya, Thailand and Thailand in general. How to go about getting a nice luxury house built for under $25,000 (1,000,000 Baht)? If you think a sales pitch is brewing…. don’t worry, nothing for sale, no advertising. The only thing requested is feedback after you review the site.

Think of it: living in style in a tropical paradise! Thailand is a wonderful place, until you try to get something done!

OK, maybe it is still a wonderful place, but things can get frustrating at times. Anyway, from the stories with my friends to my own personal experience the saying that fits is ‘If I only knew then what I know now!’. Continue reading…

This page is becoming the new CTH home page. The old one hadn’t been updated since the site started back in 2004 (or 2447 depending on your perspective). Hopefully this rendition will be easier to follow and slightly less cluttered. The page may not work correctly until it is fully set up. For now the url to the page is www.coolthaihouse.com/blog, eventually it will be moved to www.coolthaihouse.com (replacing the old home page). All of the old stuff connected to the old home page has been saved and will still be accessible.

There are new sections on the homepage to see the latest gallery updates and also some random images from the gallery. There is a section showing latest forum posts (as before). There is a section showing featured categories of information. These featured categories will show new information on dozer projects, etc., but you can also access the information from the blog page.
