Architects in Thailand and what to expect

For general discussion of:
1.) Project management or other professionals used during the project.
2.) Anything related to house design tools and applications. This would be an area to share and get feedback on your ideas for a house plan.
3.) Architectural styles used within Thailand.

Crikey, some people are determined, lol.
I went to the local council office, showed my hand drawn provisional sketches and agreed on a price. Two weeks later, the official drawings were done and stamped with only minor changes. The young engineer was great. The only reason you would get an architect involved is to supervise the job. Thats where my faith in the system stops. :D

Architects are renowned for taking 20% off the top, appointing a builder only to show up before completion to put red/yellow/green dots where there is a paint over run.
They are into art in a big way, that's why you have so much detail in the pretty pictures. But you pay for all this, lol. Don't let them experiment on you !

You will find that most of the places like HomePro will design and quote on a kitchen.

mroll......after being interrupted I'm back again on designing/building one bedroom house/chalet/carport.

In retrospect would u still use Homebyme......looks a bit more user friendly than Sketchup for homes.
I should add I've already built one small chalet ....it will be some metres away......and would like to see them both with a bit of garden to check the aesthetics. Would Homebyme manage that?

Or would anyone else recommend other before I reboot my designing?

My experience is that you are wasting your time. Draw it out on paper and add all the details that you want cause the architect WILL do his own drawings anyway. Dont bother trying to reinvent the wheel.

Back at the drawing board.

MRolll kindly introduced Homebyme design program.

I go to the sight and click TRY NOW twice but only get the spinning circle and no download.

I'm on a mac but that should be OK as i see it in their video.

Would anyone be so kind as to try to download and see what happens?

Thanks!

It doesn't download a program as it is a web service, the problem will be related to the computer or network connection.

Also it's only free for the first 3 times as far as I can see

On Wi-Fi I get 199.81 Mbps down and 180Mbps up on a 2.66Ghz i7 laptop and the site is slow

On my iPad Air 2 it is unusable and crashes.

On a iMac I'm getting 839Mbps down and 646Mbps up with a 3.1 Ghz i5 and the site works OK

You would be better advised to use Sketchup as though the learning curve is a bit higher it will be ok on your computer

A+ for effort thank you STWW!

Im not so bad at SKP but am actually finding it quite practical to do drawings on a graph book at this stage.
there are always changes coming along but once drawn once it's quite easy to use a rubber a few times then do a new amended version.
Constructive (no pun intended!) criticism welcome.
My concern at the moment is if the clerestory windows and glass sliding doors onto the patio will allow enough light in for a bright sitting room (it's up to 4m high). Especially given there are three clumps of bamboo south of the house which I'd rather keep. One would normally welcome shade but I do like a bit of direct sun especially mornings.

Having big Windows Alco be avare that when exposed to sun it will create heat on the inside.
On my house i have deep windows to the south and roof overhang is 1 to 1.5 meter. (curved window)
Seemed ok during the bilding period (spring and summer) when sun was high.
But comes Winter season the sun is low and the living room feel the effect of the sunshine :-)
So coming back to Thailand end january i will extend the roof 2.3 meter to solve the problem.
Will also make better shadow for sitting on the outside terasse,
Also a reminder: Make some kind of isolation for heat from concrete terasse if just outside house.
When it get heated from sunshine that heat will come inside :-)
