so ther has been some progress on the buildingsite.
the local chaman did his show at 6 in the morning. the buildingteam, my wife, junior and me had to help a bit and screem it out to be lucky building the home.
so the holediggers are stil digging i think about 6 more holes to go. the crew is folding the iron for the collums and almost finished the collums for the footings. concreed has been put in the finished holes and tomorrow the ready collums wil be in place. shop, he send the bad quality, yesterday we had a misunderstanding with our steel supplyer, he delivered the lower quality 12 mm rebar instead the good one. My wife angry and ordered him to bring the good one and take the rubbisch back, so he did within 30 minutes. so he will be warned about my wife, she is not very friendly when angry. he even had to go down 20 thb for the steel or no deal annymore!!! :lol:

I like your design. Very simple. Kitchen will be on the right hand side, right?

You don't have any posts on your living room, which is 8m x 8m if I can see correctly. You must have some quite significant steel roof trusses then

Symmetrical designs are always pleasing. With 64 sqm, the living room is probably large enough for a round of badminton. :D The only thing I am wondering about is why have 3 bathrooms, or aren't these all bathrooms? What's the budget for this house?

Cheers, CMX

2 bathrooms can do, the one next door is loundry/storrage room
budget 1.9 mil but at the end 2.000.000 for the house.lady always want something expensive more, toilet, bath, kitchen aso.

there is a lot of 16 mm rebar in the beams around and under from the livingroom. beams are 40x60cm.
roof trusses ar also made in concreet, expensive but we dont want anny posts in the livingroom. kitchen on the right side with open entrance to the living and a dooor to the porch 3x8 on the back from the home. I think we take our meals mainly outside on the porch.
just one thing is worriing me, with a porch on the front and on the back we will have very little daylight in the livingroom. for this reason we go for 2 big doors with mostly glass.

In Thailand, this should be an advantage in terms of passive cooling. The two adjacent wings are effectively shading/cooling the middle. Don't worry about the light. Thailand has plenty of that. :) If you use 4-panel glass doors or something similar, there's still enough light getting into the house. We have a 2m veranda running around the entire SW-side of our house, and there is still more than enough light getting in.

Seems that you've already done your homework: 1.9 to 2 millions looks to me a good estimate for your house

AFTER 2 WEEKS OF BUILDING EXPERIENCE I AM NOT DISSAPOINTED JET BY OUR BUILDER JET.
The footings for the home , the rebar for the groundbeams got in ttotally, and tomorrow they wil put the wood for the forms.
thursday the wil put the concreet, all in one time by hand, verry hard job to do i figure.
another suprice was that our builder did bring all the wood for the forms by himself. not usual around here.
when the concreet is put in i wil take some more pics.

I put in some more pics about the steelwork and puttimg in the wood for the ground beams.
so pouring the concreet wil have to wait for tomorrow or saturday, I think with al the rebar the house can do for at least 40 years.
