Dilscussion now about colour for windows.
Have told that i like to have them white.
It has also a sensible reason because it is separated into small section and all the wood make it very dark inside.
The reason for the small section was "mafie fear" from my wife.
Know many thai dont mind having dark inside, but I like bright.
Strange however, thought the issue was closed even when windows was ordered, but the question keep poppin up
together with comments on the very nice wood, etc :)

A few inside pics show effect of the window frame and why need to be painted white.
But hope their layout may have effect on burglars try to break in.
They have to do some work take away all broken glass and bring some equipment to destroy window frames.
Also have got extra locks for all the doors, where you need a key to open, both outside (normal) and on inside.

Have painted windows and door frames for the first of 3 times and look much brighter.
Happy that stayed with desision to paint white and luckily wife now at least say the same.
Also inside roof is mainly finished, shall have some extra decoration in living room, kitchen and master bedroom.
Desided on one design for living room because of its rektangular layout and another for Kitchen and bedroom because
more square.

Have bought water heathers for bathrooms and Kitchen. They shall have capasity to handle both shower and washing hands at same tome, so hopefylly be ok.
At least the People at Global House recommended them.
Not sure on how much they will really be needed.
We also bought stainless steel tank on 1.250 liter
Think big enough, we are normally 2 persons and the size will give good renewal of the water.
Tank wil be placed back of garage heading South so think will get quite hot during daytime.

Also have Locks on all doors going out (or in). Have to use key on boh side so burglars cant just kick out the glass and open the door.
Finished roof on the pergola at the and of the land. Fastened it With total 100 screws, so hopefully it will be enough then Winter storms arrive :evil:

Also bought toilets.
Did go for normal standard/price at thb 6.000 for the ones used on bathrooms and about 2.000 for the one at the outside WC at back of garage.

What are you using for the alfresco (back of house) roof? Clear plastic sheets or metal sheets or the cpac style large tiles?

It is not the back of the house, it is a free standing pergola at the end of our land (Lands End :? )
But i used clear (in my case blue colour) plastic plates from Home Pro (profiles with "Waves")
Dimension lenght about 250 and wide about 110cm. Price each about thb 500,-

Let it be light!
Special evening when iside lights could be put on for the first time.
Have to change to dimmers in a couple of rooms, otherwise ok.
However have a small problem With the photocell.
Comes on a little early and seems to be non-adjustable.
Asked buikder and said adjusable photocells not available in LOS:
Personally not sure about that so will check out myself :evil:
If correct can bring from home next time and change.

A great man said some years ago:
It is not beginning of the end but maybe it is the end of the beginning.
It is also a kind of suitable for this Project at the moment.
Still left finishing, the garage, pump rooms and outside shower/toilet, terasse and pool.
But New day tomorrow :-)
We will stay here to end april, then Builder say house finished and working on garage.
We will wait With Kitchen, bathrooms and Furniture until we Return to los in end june.

Railing on small terasse and also on what will be large terasse/pool finished.
Lots of work making it and the man who did was surely worth his thb 3.000 rfeceived from the Builder.
Also made ok curved railing outside living room.
Sandstones on basements and lower part of culums mostly finished.
Told Builder i liked have grey as main colour.
He was not to happy With that and arrived With some also red tone.
I told til not to use and the result is quite matching With tiles on terasse
Also door handle on main door and same on double door from Kitchen to terasse finished.
It is a good example to NEVER leave the site.
Im sure the height is ok for thais at 160cm but not for me With my 185.
We had to og 2 days to Norwegian Embassy for Phens daughtet desided to come to us 2 months from end april.
She has finished With her (mafia-no good) boyfriend, so low handles is a small price to pay for getting her away from LOS for some time.
Today people are working With fittings around Windows and doors.
It is a mix of plactic/Wood thing, made in Thailand.
Pics later.

Frameworks continued today.
Builder pleased With the result and asked if we like to have same under main Windows in Kitchen.
We said yes :-)
Mouldings are a thai product as written in previous post from Company named Yes Products.

But started thinking about aircon.
Visually ugly as....... but serve a purpose.
In start will have in 2 bedrooms until find out about effect of Blocks.
Will like to put the outside 2 units at the back of house towards garage.
But then distanse to one of the inside units will be close to 10 meters.
I know the shorter distance the better, but how about 10 meters. Possible or not ?

(I know People in shop will say not possible, they like easy job. But seen at hotels that distanse sometimes can be quite long.
So inputs/opinions/experiences appreciated :-)

Can you give more detail of the architraves (framework) you are fitting, where you got them from, the cost and the different profiles available.
Thanks
