Now building in Ubon Ratchathani

Postby bkloer » Fri Feb 24, 2012 6:48 pm

My name is Bob, and my wife and I are building out in the middle of rice farms. The house is on 12 concrete poles, high enough to walk under the actual living space. The entire living space on top of these poles is six meters by nine meters, with an additional 3x3m balcony centered on a 9-meter side, which overlooks a pond. The rest of the house is wood. To date (24-2-2012), the floor, rafters/trusses, wall "framing", gypsum roof pieces, and steps leading to the balcony, are finished. My wife's father and a couple other older "spervisors" are the project managers. They then hire capable laborers.

I've not seen the structure yet, as I work in Oman. I'm sure to have questions as this project continues, and am glad to be a member of this forum.

We've an issue with a palm tree on the back of our under-construction build . The problem is the palm fruit drops on the roof and breaks the roof tiles. I think we should figure out a way to keep the palm fruit from dropping onto the roof WITHOUT cutting down the palm tree. There must be a way. I love that tree. Even paying somebody to go up the tree to cut-and-gather the fruit into a bag. Does anyone out there have any other ideas? I've seen these palm fruits, and they are big and heavy.

RE Martin b: We're building in Non Kong, around 22 km outta Ubon toward Yasothon.
RE payebacs: I hope to visit the building site in July. My wife is there now.

Maybe a net of some sort or spare mattrass on the roof :)
