So you were going to just finish the second floor for now but your father-inlaw wants you to complete the whole house. Or something like that.

Welcome aboard. Send us a few pictures.

Let me try...... you have one story of a two story house built, which you are living in and have closed off the second floor with steel. Your father-in-law, a builder wants to finish it, but you don't have the funds, so you are quite happy to use the bottom part until you get more funds. Has anyone else done this?

Well I’m sticking to my interruption.

Doing two floors
finish second floor for now
lower floor later
minimize cash flow
now has columns and mid (second) floor done

On another thread OP stated all this has been done for 12USD :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: and a contact me.

This should be interesting.

I know some people like talking in feet - we recently 'lost' an American contributor who did just that (and RogerRamjet does too) - but I prefer the Thai metres and Baht.
The 12 USD is that at 30, 33, 35 or 40 to the Dollar?

well i know the baht is thai but i thought metres were universal ???
the problem is you tend to stick with what you know and grew up with i was still learning imperial measures and then along came all this metric nonsense and yes i can do both but i tend to automatically think feet inches and england is metric other than miles per hour pounds of goods some people refuse to deal with metric the americans on the other hand still use imperial i believe although never having been there i could be wrong but if i were a mariner i would talk in nautical miles chains and fathoms because its what i can visualise

Okay, to clarify, I was actually saying "... metres as used in Thailand ... " :D
geordie wrote:the problem is you tend to stick with what you know and grew up with

Speak for yourself. :wink: The country I grew up in converted from Pounds, Shillings and Pence to a decimal currency and we also changed from Imperial everything to metric everything. I thought it wonderful and have never looked back. I do still remember: 1 pound is 454 grams, 1 mile is 1.609 kilometres, etc.
I'm not trying to have an argument, just agreeing to disagree. :lol:

My question was: what was the rate of conversion at the time the USD 12 was miscalculated on said build?

fred i was merely defending those of us who went through an imperial education to then have to change not picking a row
like you the country i grew up in changed to metric the problem is me and many others feel we were sold out and so we still think in feet and inches and even now when you go to tescos
they weigh in kilos price in kilos then give you a lb comparitor on loose goods the goverment weighed up the cost of changing all the uk road sighns so we still have mph adding to the confusion and yes with resentment i do use metric mesurement but i have to convert to get there
no doubt as before when i return to thailand i will have to use metres but not because i like it merely because i wish to be understood
