I used them as well, and will use again 10 March for my second renovation. Very good service and they really commit to their warranty without any trouble.
As for the heat, make sure you vent the roof or there will still be a build up of heat.

The last pic, post before, shows the steel that the "smartwood" will be screwed to. Some info on the steel, the "uprights"(1X1 box) are welded to 4X4 1/4 inch thick plates that are screwed into the "porch" posts. The pieces that the "smartwood" screw into are 1X2 box .
DSCN7061.JPG
better pic steel primed X2 and 2 coats finish

DSCN7068.JPG
painted, when rendered 4x4 plate will not be seen

DSCN7116.JPG
painted (2 coats of primer) 2 coats also

DSCN7117.JPG
rendering started


While the rendering , Nu decides that the grey and black watertanks need to go in the ground. Only 1200 THB for the 2 men to dig the holes, and 1400 THB for 8 rings and 2 lids, at the same time 2 huge clumps of bamboo are removed. 3K THB.

Next post for those pics

3 men and rope move the rings from truck to where they go

lowering it into the hole, just a rope and muscle power

almost finished


When they were digging the holes, they went down deeper than they were tall.
I was kinda funny to see buckets of dirt flying out of the holes, but not see anyone there.

Not sure if I have any "bamboo removal" pics. I will go dig around :)
DSCN7105.JPG
All the trimmings and dead bamboo is piled up where the clump was and burned to kill of the roots. At least that is the answer I got.


not sure if i have a "before" pic , but I will look.

When I get back (mar 31 maybe) first project will be to get electric run to the house. Nu has already got the "House" book.

Then get a fridge, that will not be the " open season, anyone can take anything anytime" FRIDGE. It has not really been a big problem, there have been a few times that I bought milk, beer, fruit, etc.... Opened the door and that Item was gone. Seems to be NO concept of if you eat/drink the last of something, replace it.....at the very least, fooking say something.
Rant Mode Off......................

When I was in grade school(1-6), we had a grade/mark for "Respects property of others" This is not in the Thai culture at all.

What we do now, is put in fridge or pantry what is for everybody, and rest stashed.

I have a small 4 circuit box's for the ground floor, and wire. Still need to buy a couple more outlets, have light switchs (10), and a couple of 36" single tube lights. Down stairs will all be surface run , Thai style :shock:
Up stairs, I want cavity walls , at least in the master bedroom/onsuite that I will have aircon in. There we will run the wire in the walls.

Tile is also planned at least for the 6X6M2 that is now at lock up stage. Along with the bathroom. I have already bought the sink/bog/shower and mirror.
Exaust fan is already installed...
That is about it for now :)

Sorry Mak have no idea, prices seem much higher than they used to be round by me but we think locals charge to much anyway, we got a Makro yesterday for 6000 a day pc 60 size, all the locals wanted 8000 and the locals are literally 1km away, the guy who came was 10km away and did a good job of tidying up a few things for us.
Of course I do my own tiling :lol:
Id rely more on seeing another job from any tiler especially when it comes to any cuts than price these days as the headaches of a crap job outweigh the price issue for me now
