i want use clean energy.

my roof area is 23m x 13m and has the capacity to put circa 80 x 250 watts panels, total 20 kWh, however not necessarily looking to install an array this size, but looking for the efficient systems.

not interested in selling back to the grid. Will look at batteries for night time and lowest consumption to keep house cool, filter and pump its water.

open to advice on the systems to use. and want to harvest rain water.

my house is south facing.

house is not yet built so got a blank canvas

Ditto, and the green cone seaview seems to be to be completely dependent upon no one building on lot 4 :?

Lot 2 is in the first "photo" sketch on the top far right. The rest of the proposed house has been superimposed on the next sketches.
I would be more worried about my piles and foundations, along with the legitimacy of the chanote, than worrying about what the architect is paid to do..... what you tell him you want incorporated in the plans.
The spacing of the foundations and columns is so out of proportion to the size of the house I would be questioning the credibility of the "architect" who drew them. They will never get engineering approval.

But if your architect is Thai, your maximum span will be 4 metres.

yes normally 4m is the max. ive seen houses with longer spans. my friend is the builder, talk of pre tensioned beams.

don mueang airport has 10m spans.

so I guess wait and see what i get.

my friend is the builder, he has lived on the island for almost 20 years, partners in building one of the golf courses here and its housing estates. our daughters are in the same class at school, spent christmas day together, known him for 2.5 years, he was the first one to come see me at hospital after I had a bad smash here last june, our daughters frequently play at each other houses and have stay overs.

The elevated expressways have 20 metre spans but I doubt you would like to pay the very high price their construction will cost. The longer the span the more steel required.

What you would like and what the Or Bor Tor engineer will approve are two different things. Have you spoken with the Tesseban or Or Bor Tor engineers at all?
I can tell you now you should be more interested in the piles and the footings than anything else. If you are going to have a 6 metre span then you'll need not only a great Thai builder who understands plans, but also a lot of really heavy duty rebar and concrete that will pass a slump test every time.

And more concrete.

OK I SEE the problem, the photos are all way too big, in google chrome you have to reduce the magnification of everything down to 50% to see ALL the photo, then you can see all the lots

the coolest attic I have found upto now is white colourbond with PU insulation, like Fredlk has done in his Sattahip build, so this is what I would like to use on mine. 92% reflection and 92*F attic temp I believe during midday.
