Phuket simple Eco (passive cooling) Thai House

Postby lvideau » Tue Oct 06, 2009 9:55 pm

I am new here. I would like to build a simple Thai house in Phuket but with maximum proven passive cooling design. Would any one be able to help me get some answers to the following questions:

- What would be the price per sqm to build a simple Thai style house in Phuket, everything included (septic thanks, electricity...)

- Any one know an experienced architect in Phuket or any where else in Thailand who has done Eco-Energy efficient design? I would like a simple Thai traditional house but with maximum passive cooling design to minimize energy cost to keep it cool.

- Any one know a reliable/reasonable contractor/builder in Phuket?

- Any one has experiences in building a perimeter wall around a land in Phuket? What has been the cost/m for a 2m high wall? (I hear it is about 1,000 B in other parts of the country).

Thank you very much in advance for any help you may be able to provide me with.


PS: I really like the design of your house and the view. Having a limited budget, I am looking for a simple Thai house but with maximum energy saving characteristics.
