At least two of the regular members of CTH are solar/renewable energy professionals (although they don't advertise the fact) and can offer some sound advice, so any question like that is worthy of a new thread. However, to ensure maximum exposure and response, it needs to be posted in the most appropriate forum, sub forum, or topic, otherwise it will be missed by most people.

Once I get my life back, I'll post more pictures with details, but for the time being, here's a look at part of the finished structure with the deck and pool.

It's recycled hardwoods. We hand picked each piece (2x6) from a local recycling yard. There is lumpaw, teak, mae deng and teng. We gave the deck several coats of polyurethane but plan to let is fade naturally to it's natural grey color over time.

How much are 2x6 old wood down your way, we have been recently buying a bit of 2x8 and 2x4's as well as various post and beam sizes.

We bought both Dang and Dheng.

I believe I paid 60 baht per meter for 2 x 6.

if thats correct price, then it is cheap compared to up here, might have to come down there and buy it all up.

2x8 here is 300/350 a meter.

I don't know if this http://www.estatesalliance.com/en/thailand/phuket/paklok/house-for-sale-46354.html is anything to go on, but you can see that the house is being sold for 89 Million (eighty nine million) Baht.

It certainly is a spectacular property.

What did you use on the swimming pool for lining ? Cannot see it in great detail but has a nice look to it.
