I think painting after a couple of weeks is fine, The house will not stop settling for a long time so I would not wait for that.
I would use a flexible , printable caulking to fill the cracks. make sure to remove excess caulking from outside the crack by washing the caulking with water if it is water base, or spirits if it is oil base, using a rag soaked in the appropriate solution.
while the caulking is still wet and sticky, sprinkle some fine sand on it so that its texture will match the texture of the surrounding wall and not stand out.

Thank's for the advices...i will go look at the shops to find what you speak about...!...

I have decide to paint all in white (in 3 weeks) and then let it dry for a while, and finish with the last color , that to be sure to get not fadding colors if the concrete drink all water from...even if i have put some "liquid" in the render !

so long time without writing in English...thank's to read me even when

Sunpax here is the Dulux paint calculator. Can’t help you with costs, maybe you could get three prices. Just to many variables in different areas.

I used Jotun for years but my painter in BKK always used TOA with good results so on my last build that is what was used. Don't think there really is a lot of difference in the higher priced paints these days.

No pictures of the house on the thread for more than half a year .... be nice to see the current position.

Don't worry too much Sunpax ... you'll get it all done in the end ... then you can relax and enjoy :) 8)

Its very kind of you ..thanks MGV12...

Sometimes its really not easy...especially here where i live...!!!

i had 4 workers during 2 weeks....Thai people working in family from 130 km from here...i had to pay for benzine every day (400) and they was working only from 9 morning to 5 evening...600 bahts by person + food and drink and tips...

the rendering around the house is finish...the concrete chape for the 3 terrasse have been pour ..i have also let them erected the piles (round water pipe) for the futur roof...but they cannot work alone...i was needed to tell them what to do...i have let them free for the perimeter wall...they have tell me they know !!! lolll you must see this poor wall !!!
ok i just must say that they was good for rendering...i had a wall where need to put 7 cms ciment !!!

and almost all pvc has been remake ...because i had a leak somewhere under the house :( ...now i have pvc running on the wall...doesn't matter...(its behind the house my luck )i must not any more stop the pump and put on every time i used it...pffff !!! and my pump don't work every 3 mn...she's quiet...!

so i have again no more workers !!! no painters...no roof makers......no tiles one ....no carpenter, my stairs are still nude.. ect. ect

pictures will come...but my camera don't work to good...and i am so busy...cleaning working and shaming that the work take soooo long....¨!

All the wood stain that I've seen is not a stain but a coloured polyurethane or varnish. To get the best result you lightly sand the first coat after a day (or a few hours if it is hard enough) then put on a second coat. I would then put on a clear top coat for the best finish.

Yes, I have seen them in many places that sell concrete pipe, tanks, pavers etc. You will need ask / look around.
