Hopefully be ok.
When left for Norway end april only had 30 minutes rain.
Not heard anything about that yet, and sure if something had happened to any part of the house, phone from LOS will come within seconds :D
But soon I know for sure 8) 8) 8)

I think there's little difference between that and sherawood. In the 5 years for our sunshade and 3+ for our Waterhouse there have been no problems, and all they may need is a new coat of paint in a few years time.

Builder finished make cover for gutter outside/in front of pump house/pool shower/toilet on back of garage.
Gutter also long enough to take care of water from steel water tank if I like to empty it for cleaning etc.
Cover not steel but will prime and paint. It is a dry spot and much sun, so hopefully will last for some years :) :)
Gutter is connected With water coming from roofs and french drains at the egdes of garden and eventually ending in the "fish dam".
Guess soupy water from the shower will be minimally so no damage done. Will normally also use shower when use pool and that will normally
NOT be done when raining heavily. So hope most of the soup will disappear in the french drain. :)

Better wiev of the cover on the gutter in front of pump room and pool shower. Not steel but if primed and paintet properly hopefully will
last some years. It is a very dry place so hope that help.
Think ask him to make at the entrence to the house, but with proper dimension for cars.
Also told builder important they can be opened to remove dirt, hopefully he remember :)

Finished sandstone in front of garage and put lamps back in place.
When we left Buriram end april the front of house was a dusty desert. Not so anymore, so Guess i have to do some grass trimming when returns in 12 days.
Also will be interesting to see about ants.
In last 6 months given them "angel dust" so problem was in the end almost not existing.
But now been soon 2 months with workers trowing rests of their meals around, action that change that easily. :twisted:
Luckily it will not last forever :D

Returned to LOS june 22th but been very busy so not able to post before now.
At the moment sitting: in my own kitchen writing, but lets take from start:
After airport go directly to Ikea.
Had tried in advane check out options for payment, seems cash or card only alternatives.
Desided to rely on the Mastercard.
During 3 hours bought some Furniture, 2 beds, 2 bathroom Furnitures, 2 Mirror wardrobes, Kitchen With Appliances as well as Kitchen table and Chairs.
Good work falang :D
Arrived 3 days later in 2 pickup vans, all together 153 boxes to be assembled.
Originally planned Ikea to fix the Kitchen but they wanted thb 38.000 for the job. Price Kitchen 143.000,-
Wife say : Expensive-we can do :?
After Ikea moved on to Buriram.
Team had been allowed to work on garage when im not there.
Result: angle on outside shower walls not . Door in pump room in wrong direction even if clearly show on drawings.
Good advice for future Builders : Stay on site..................................... :evil:
Also one of the outside lamps had broken in the strong Wind and had to be replaced.
Needless to say, assembling the stuff from Ikea have taken most of the time to now.
Been ok, check whats inside the Box against assembling instruction and follow carefully.

Time for update.
As mentioned, times been very busy but hope now come to a more normal tempo.
Much of the reason for the tempo was that we had "party for house" on july 5th and likes finished as much as possible of assebly.
Even if total result is ok, there som black moments.
Putting in the kitchen ventilator was a challenge. Didnt find any holes for screws that seems to fit :-(
But after some nights of thinking did come up With a solution.
But very small margins for putting in the screws and of course, resultet in ventilator falling down on first attempt, breaking the induction plate on the kitchen hob below.
At that moment did feel sorry for myself (was early morning as well)
Later builder came by for the days outside work and did see what happened and, of course, when wife came by an hour later he told her about my accident long before she had reached the house :evil: :evil:
And wife, who has all the good solutions asked stupid husband "why not not any cloth over the hob when working With the ventilator?", a question that didnt exacly improve my happy spirit of the day :twisted: :twisted:
But, good luck after all, seems that a new induction plate will cost "only" thb 3800,- , all work done..
Also terasse and swimming pool show good progress.
Was a little nervous about that because of raining season.
But not impressed by the skills of thai professional truck drivers. The last one to get stuck in some wet spot was the C.pac truck.
He is no 4.
Last, before him was one of two coming from Ikea.
First one has now been tiled, still miss railing around and seems we have to wait tiling the pool itself until come back october.
TIles been ordered price thb 815,- m2.
Same goes for rain gutters, seems that globel house didnt have the "downfalls" and had to been ordered.
My Builder will mobe on to another house on august 15th but will come back to us when we Return for the remaining work.

For both systems, including cables for the cameras and all the fittings paid thb 57.000,-

20160824_161432[1].jpg

Mostly finished outside. when come back make lawn and it will be ca 1.800m2.
Gardener recommended some Japanese grass, did grow slowly and didnt need more watering that other sorts (Malay and phillipine)-he said :)

Arrived back in LOS a week ago.
This time to stay in New home from day 1 :D
First stopped Ikea to get some knifes, spoons and other stuff for the Kitchen.
The driver had also collected the cameraes and the sensors from the shop in Pattaya a couple of days Ahead.
Typically enough, when he first went to the shop they looked at him and told they had never heard my name and of course nothing about an order.
Luckily the matter was setteled after a phone from my wife and a copy if he receipt.
Next day go Buriram to get 2 recliner Chairs to have in front of the tv.
Also Builder arrived and started laying the pool tiled in pattern adviced from Phen.
(But Im pleased too.
Been away for almost two months it was a lot of garden work to be done.
Started With the driveway to the house.
Builder previously told the could take care of the job, but when he mentioned his price 2.550.000,- we said will
So now we have another teme of lokal People.
Have bought garden sprinklers.
Think LCO is the brand name
Have not (yet) fount out if possible to reduce pressure, but hopefylly will.
As farw as can see it is possible to have watering in just one direction.
Adviced to use only 13.5 pipe, because of water pressure.

Not my day- have problem uploding the Pictures :-(
