I am a carpenter by trade, a member of the international brotherhood of carpenters union for more years than I am willing to admite. Unfortunately I worked all my life in the Concrete league NYC putting up highrise buildings. So when people ask me, what I do, I tell them I am a carpenter with the Union, and they say "ohh great, can you make me some cabinets?" , to which I reply.
Sure do you have a chainsaw? :lol: :lol:
I talk to my self because I am the only one who will listen

This is a book I bought in Thailand last time, for only TB 300. Its has some 120 No House Designs in it (by the Home Collection Group) which may be of use to those contemplating a build.

Below are several design examples and content. Sorry cant read Thai, but I can read Pictures

You can explore the area with Google maps. The soi next to this one and the side streets are mainly wood related as well.

I can help with teak and other kinds of wood (acacia, oak, ash), especially for those who are in the North. I do not want to make here an advertisement for myself, however, I saw here yesterday a link to a supplier in the North - as a "German guy" - who is he not. In fact, he has got wood supplied from myself.

Anybody who needs a help, can give me a PM, can talk by phone.

Roof framing well underway, maybe another two days.

Height to top of RC Ring Beam is 3400 mm and height to inside of Eave Fascia Board on west and south side should be around 3200 mm, if the Thai Roofer gets it right. Aiming to achieve a look like Concept 1-0 & 4-0

Ceiling height inside will be 2850 mm and then step up 300 mm (to 3150 mm) between the concrete beams

Wood street, Bang Po


Locality known as Bang Po but postal address is Bang Sue

The main street is Pracha Rat Sai 1 Soi 24 which then changes to Soi Krungthep-Nonthabury 5 about halfway along ( this the one "gippy" has posted the google street view of.)

The next big Soi, which is one way in the opposite direction is Soi Krungthep-Nonthabury 13 which then changes to Pracha Rat Sai 1 Soi 28

I would be very careful moving teak on any roads these days.

We sold fifty tree back in April the permit to move them has not been approved yet.
Can fall the trees but it’s moving them is the problem.
Have been told the permit should be here next week although that has been said before. In normal times this took six weeks for approval. We had to put up signs on our property of the pending move had numerous officials here taking picture of trees, wife pointing at trees etc. My how things have changed.

No problem, having a licence for teak. And for any move of teak material or teak products we always get a paper from Forestry with all the details of the transfer.

Thought I would upload a few more House Designs from my Thai Book, while I waited for my roof tiles to arrive.

A bit more progress as the Fascia Board goes on. By my estimate the bottom of the fascia board is about 150 mm below the top of the concrete ring beam, so he got it right. I will eventually paint the fascia board, Black, to match the roof tiles, which are due in about 4 weeks.

So far he is an excellent roofer, but has poor taste in Music

Just a word of warning in case it's needed, depending on whether you are having gutters or not,? they have a tendency to overhang the bottom tile quite a lot to let the water clear the facia and house ,which is ok if there is No gutters, but with gutters in a down pour the water over shoots . It's usually a matter of moving the 2nd bottom batten up a bit as most tiles can lap as much as you want. :?: :?:
