Off to Klong Prem Prison fair for nice furniture.

Access to our bedroom

Old compressor space. This will get a granite top and coffee and glasses.
There's a small spotlight in the ceiling their and electric of course.

Image
completed bench with accessory from the fair.
Furniture was 9500 Baht, bicycle was 800 Baht.

Still some details to finish and their will be lots of plants eventually, but need to focus on the house first.

Cheers,
Luc

Once the concrete base was done, they had a clean and straight base to start building up the brickwork.
Slowly the shape of the kitchen starts to show. They've also pored the concrete for the extension to the right.

New covers for sceptic and grey-water tanks. Beats an overturned paint-bucket any time..lol

Close up of drains and tapwater.

I see the area that you previously called "seen from the sink, where the oven and stove will go"
Is that area usually lowered?? Don't recall seeing that b4 anywhere.

Also It's nice to see that they poured in the floor after making the front walls of the kitchen. When I open the doors in my current rent house I see the floor at the normal elevation, not raised. Good to know...
Now, on with the read.

Thanks

I like the idea of the raised platform for the washer.
I plan on a front loader as well, b/c it can heat the water, but being low to the floor, a raised shelf will be great.

Notes, nores and more notes.
Thanks for the inspiration.

We had those doors anyway. Easy to get on top for electric and other stuff and maybe for storage but we never use them.
They look nice though. Lol

Most modern kitchens have that nowadays. It makes for easier handling of hot pans and pots on the stove.
Make sure to avoid the mistake we made, measure for enough free space at the back or you can't use those burners for a wok or other big pan.

Cheers, feel free to ask any other details. I will have pictures for most of your questions I guess
