I think your estimate is a little on the low side looking at the size of the house I think you will have to throw a couple of million at it if you want the western comforts.

thxs for the review Mr. Pope. Out at this build i am only expat, so is minimal resale. The other expat in village caught the last train to the coast and the three I admire the most.. well they are still singing.. Just be doing minimum here. Interesting is how rain sets up on 2 old property build without fill dirt. So I been chief ditch digger lately.

Hi, I see you have 6 toilets! How many people will be living in the house? After careful thinking, we figured 2 are
enough for us (mum, dad + baby). I poop a lot, but not enough to justify > 2. I would welcome one in the family
car, but have not found an ergonomic driver seat/pooper combination as yet.

Max and Bee,
I would suggest to check with Top Gear; in various shows they have built many a portable loo. I laughing too much to go into explanations, but the best was on their Arctic adventure.

Otis, I take it the kitchen will be on the ground level.

On the bathroom topic will you have a second one on the lower level?

Looks like the place is taking shape with the roof on the weather should not slow the team down too much. In my build I went a bit over with the toilets but plan to have plenty of friends round and hate to see people queing for the loo, my original intention was one with a shower for the pool but the pool ended up at the side. I like smmetry in the design and wanted both sides to look similar so another reason for the over abundance of loo's. If I built again I would do it differently but I am sure most of us would say that.

Keep posting the pictures and hope you keep in your budget, mine cost about 4 million and not a stick of furnature in that price or fancy teak mouldings.

The downstairs is wife design & what seems to be happening are 2 small rooms with one for toilet sink second is for shower and sink - all her design. She wants the wash machine outside by kitchen door.
