Re: Building regulations and water pipe

How much are they now selling for one rai? I think 1 rai is a good size. As for the size of the house, I would say less than 200 sqm. We like things simple. How much it would approximately cost if we build it ourselves?1000 B per sqm? Is it correct? Is the price include land?

It must be a wonderful place with so many wonderful people. To explain my situation a bit, I've been a hobby builder since 1...

The temperature was always very comfortable as far as I can recall whether it was morning, afternoon or evening. Also other hotel complex in Bali were...

Building regulations and water pipe

Hallo! Anyone can tell me something about the building regulations in Thailand? What are the
restrictions? How about sewage system and water pipe (DIN?)? What kind of system and standard are applied in Thailand? Is lime being used for walls?

Thanks in advance!

Re: shipping personal property

I will be facing similar problem. Some leftover 6 years ago should be sorted and picked up from Melbourne. Any suggestions? Those are all personal belongings e.g. 3 boxes of Lego, albums, trophies etc. How about import tax for used stuff? Our plan is to rent something first and build something later...

Re: When was your first visit to Hua Hin?

Not yet. Been to many other part of Thailand but not Hua Hin. Didn't know it until a friend of mine mentioned
it as retirement destination.

Wonder if it's very different to other part of Thailand: PP Island, Krabi, Pattaya, Bangkok and Phuket are the places we've been to.
