Buenos Nachos everybody ! Aloha

Postby Chuck WoW » Tue May 01, 2012 6:51 pm

Greeting fellow dreamers. Glad I found you.

Looking to build a home with pool for 1 million baht. 30-32,000 usad Doable ? It will be in Dong Luang area about 1 and half hour from Mukdahan.
Some family labour for basic things like tying re-bar,painting,wheel barrel duty,drinking my beer.

Any recommended builders in this area ? why would I want to live there ? WIFE. ....

Thanks in advance.

If the pool is larger than 1 metre square then I would say no, it's not doable.

Hi there

Responses not exactly hopeful so far! Probably a one mill budget and that pic gives the idea that it's more of a daydream than likely to become a reality.

Surprising what you can do with a million Baht but with the family only appearing to be suitable for relatively menial tasks you would need bargain basement labour and materials in all areas.

With decent equipment a modest pool could easily soak up half that budget if contracted out ..... although it can be done much cheaper if you can project manage yourself as one member has recently shown viewtopic.php?f=19&t=3141

What sort/type of house do you envisage?

Open plan same as the sala the roofs will eat the rest of the budget :lol:

What?!?!?! You can build a small house for only a million baht?

I was budgeting $50K for my planned build.

Oh, and welcome Chuck! ;)
