Hello, does anyone have a plumber contact for Chiang Mai, someone able to work to good standards, not the local
village idiot?

Thanks a lot...

Walk in my shoes - work with them and manage them for a few weeks, invest alot of your money and see crap being produced, or worse - your work destroyed, then you will be qualified to comment.

I am happy to "put down" any donkey, no matter what country, thai, british, etc.... even aussies, and I have put myself down and called myself an idiot also for mistakes I have made on the project.

I really should tell you why I think I’m qualified to comment on building threads.

My life has been spent in construction not only residential builds but was employed on some of the largest projects in Canada. During my twelve years or so in Thailand my wife and I have build one house, one duplex and have done major renovations and additions on three homes with one more build planned with the sale of our present home. So there is no need to walk in your shoes to experience construction mishaps as I have had more than my fair share.

During that time we had many ups and downs but nothing like you are experiencing.
While building it became clear that if you didn’t want to ‘waste your money, see crap being produced, or worse - your work destroyed’ you had to supervise the work in progress. Many a time if I had not been on the job site major and costly complications would have occurred. We have members who are making a living doing this kind of work and it takes dedication, compromise, good communication skills and a knowledge of how things work in this country.

Do understand your “I am happy to "put down" any donkey, no matter what country, thai, british, etc.... even aussies” I just don't agree with it as really the fault lies with the team leader, supervisor, foreman, not the workers. That is just the way it is in construction big or small.
It's not who you know, it's whom you know.

i will settle for someone who can follow instructions, and knows what they are doing, having a hard time finding one, hoping some members here from CM have used and can recommend a good one.

It's good that you're helping out. I think giving recommendations is a good thing, the bad bit being when the person doing the recommending is somehow held responsible for possible shoddy work which is unfair. I don't mind passing on any contact information and I have been quite open about the good and the bad on my building story. My first builder came highly recommended, but unfortunately due to personal problems let us down and that can happen with anybody at anytime. I hold nobody responsible. No point.

Thank you, we found someone for this Wednesday but if that falls through will give this guy a call.

Would love to help but we do not have a carpenter/joiner as such, one of our workers from the village here is quite good with wood, he does the door hanging and locks and the window sills and architraves, i can ask his mobile if you like. We have minimal wood in the house, so don't need a dedicated carpenter.

Daron hasn't looked in since June 5th. Hopefully he survived his plumbing emergency and move from Afghanistan.
