Hi all
Name is John,I live north coast nsw.
Married to a Thai gal from Buri Ram for 8 years..
worked in commercial construction most of my life and love concrete, steel and block-work.
Plan is to retire early at 59 in 2 years and build my last home in Lop buri about 25k's out of the town.
Top site this and thanks to those who run it.
I have plenty of reading to do and look forward to starting a land fill in the near future.
John

Hello John and a warm welcome to CTH.
I think Tony Abbot might have buggered up Australia Day for some. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-01-26/a ... ip/6046380 but he's been notoriously good at doing that since he came to power. We do seem to elect some dumb and stupid people to power, so I'm thinking that Tony thinks that he might be next in line after he gets the old heave-ho at the next election.
You will not love what Thais try and do with concrete, steel and blockwork. You will not be well liked on a Thai building site. Make sure you have plenty of Red Bull in the esky to molify them and don't let them near the cement mixer on their own.
Have you ever thought about contacting Grand Designs Australia about documenting the build, just for fun of course?
I shall enjoy watching an Aussie builder do his stuff.
I think the aboriginal word "Buggerup" should be added to the Thai language.
Lots of luck when you start.

"Buggerup" or mostly used as "buggeredup" in Thailand has it's spin-off's and depending on the magnitude of the problem can be "stuffedup" or "fcuked", usually left to the one making the comment and based on cost/time/importance/aesthetics' constraints.

Hi and I am heading down Buriram way this next trip looking for some Suppliers of Granite and or Marble. Have you seen any large Suppliers worth looking at down south of Khon Kaen?
