New house close to Sukhothai!

Postby SVielha » Wed Feb 22, 2006 4:43 pm

Hi.

My name is Sascha and my wife and I are building (let build) a house close to Sukhothai in a small village called Wat Tung. :D

The plan of the house was made by a friend of mine here in Germany. :wink:

The house has round about 220 m2. :P

- 4 sleeping rooms (each 16 to 25 m2)
- 1 living room (45 m2)
- 1 kitchen (30 m2)
- 1 bathroom (18m2)
- 1 small restroom (2-3 m2)
- 1 room for washing machine and so on (8 m2)
- 1 big place outside to sit with a roof on top (45 m2)

Next month the house should be finished.

Costs are round about 1.5 million Baht. :shock:

We have a very good constructor. Only one mistake at building the house.
On the rear of the house are 2 windows. 1 of this windows is under the extrawide roof for the backdoor. :shock:

With my next post I will send some pics. :oops:

Yo! Sasha, welcome.

We look forward to seeing your pictures and hearing any news of how the house build is going.

One of my favourite Restaurants is in Sukhothai (Dream Cafe), you should check it out some time a great atmosphere and great food too.

I will, thank you.

I`m going to Thailand in April again.

It was so cheap, that I had to book.

388 ? incl. TAX with Thai Airways. :shock:

Than I also can check the house.

Also, if your house is not completed yet but you need a good place to stay at a reasonable price then check out http://www.lotus-village.com/, it is exceptionally good value for money.

Ja, bin ich.

Hab ich mich etwa durch das Tchibo Angebot veraten? :wink:

The house will be 100% finished, when I fly.

Also my parents in law would be very upset, if I would stay in a hotel.

Last time I was there, I slept in the old hut under a moscito net.

Adventure pure.

On the weekend I have time to send some pics.

For the beginning, I can post a jpeg out of the architect program.


Can`t find the button for attachments! :x

Also mal Hand auf´s Herz....das Haus was du da zeigst sieht nicht nach 1,5 millionen THB aus....in dieser Region von Thailand. :roll: "Hand on your heart"....that house where you show us looks more higher than a 1,5 mil. THB house!!! :roll:

Freu mich, wenn Du denkst, es würde mehr kosten! :D

I`m happy to hear, if you think it would cost more! :D

Or do you think it should be cheaper? :evil: :wink:

I have a fixed price with the constructor (290.000 Baht). This help to make the work faster, believe me. :wink:

The ground is not included in the price, because, my wife already owns it.

Maybe it`s 1.6 million Baht. But not more. :?

The area around sukhothai is not very expensive. :P

As soon as I get new photos I add them to the folder.

Also ich werde mein house im issan (hinterste provinz) bauen und ich werde ungefähr auch so um die 1,5 mil. thb bezahlen. Aber mein haus wird 2 stöckig sein ...und ich werde fast alles selber machen. Daher ist der Preis für Sukothai (ok einstöckig) geradezu billig und unglaublich. Wie auch immer...... :wink:

I will build my house in issan area (deepest province) and i also plan around 1,5 Mil. THB. But my house will be a 2 storey house and i will do nearly everything by myself. So that´s why it´s nearly unbelievable 1,5 mil thb for sukothai.....sounds toooo cheap for my thinking. However... :wink:

But why should I do the work by myself?

Even I would have the time and would stay in Thailand.

The constructor costs is the smallest part of the whole house.

And a lot of things you can`t do on your own or it will take very long.

Do you know how to make the pillar? I don`t.

Do you know how to make the floor? I don`t.

And so on.

So I think to pay 290.000 Baht for a costructor who is doing everything on the house excl. the elektrik work and the windows. It`s the money worth.

PS:

New pics!

Thanks for putting the pics on-line. Liked the recessed ceiling and simple but effective Thai kitchen setup, similar to what was done here.
