Re: John's budget build

Forgot to put this one in. On the left is a robe with sliding doors, and on the right a cupboard with a hinged door and shelves for clothes, towels, sheets etc. Shelves will be varnished ply.

Re: Help needed to clean tiles

This just goes to prove that there has to be a basic sequence during construction - and I can't think of anything that comes further down the sequence than floor tiles. My build is still about two months away from lockup, but I am keen to be able to stay overnight on weekends. To this end, I have ju...

Re: Low Budget Village Build For In-Laws

I think that is entirely possible - it's about the same size as my garage/workshop/laundry/wc. A lot better finished of course. But with family supplying a good deal of the labour, I can't see why not.

Re: John's budget build

Back in BKK again after spending five days working onsite.With five workers, we got a lot done. Just backtracking a little, we poured the lower level floor a few weeks back - kitchen/dining, main bathroom/indoor garden/water feature. This is the last slab until we add a front patio down the track a ...

Re: Termite treatment routine

At my previous home on the Gold Coast (Oz) I had a system installed which comprised a perforated plastic hose embedded in a 30 x 30 cm trench of sand, covered over and with a pump connection/valve. The operator pumped a couple of hundred litres of diluted product through the hose. The product was Ba...

Re: Edging trowel

Thanks for all the input guys. Following up on a tip, my wife picked one up at Thai Watsadu a couple of days ago. I went there yesterday and got a control joint groover as well. Both 55 baht.

Re: Edging trowel

I guess to be technically correct I should have called it an edging float rather than trowel. But I like your idea BRD. I think I have a small section of 15 x 15 cm somewhere (main house posts) that would do the trick - it has a large enough corner radius to do the job (10 x 5 cm radius too small). ...

Re: Edging trowel

Hi guys, and thanks for the quick response. Vince, I have spent hours searching thru both Lazada and Aliexpress without any luck. Specifically, I need an edging trowel with a downward-curled quarter circle lip longitudinally to give the path edge a rounded profile rather than a right angle which wil...

Re: John's budget build

A bit late, but a couple of pics from the 10 days I had on site over Xmas-New Year. tn_IMG_20181225_130645.jpg Seems we forgot to run an earth for the main BR air con. No probs, there are ten 15 x 15 cm steel posts all one metre into the ground, all connected via the roof structure, and they are als...

Edging trowel

Won't be too long before I will be doing a lot of pathways and I will need an edging trowel like the one in the picture. For that matter, I really needed one from Day 1, but haven't been able to locate one in Thailand. Internet searches with sites like Lazada and Aliexpress haven't helped either. A ...

Re: John's budget build

"In three weeks time" contains 25% too many words. Actually the overall construction is acceptable, if redundant; but your example is grammatically incorrect. It should be: "In three weeks' time." I go along with the possessive, but not the redundancy. 'In three weeks' can (and mostly does) refer t...

Re: Low kms Ford Ranger Pickup 2.5 L turbo 335,000 baht

Sorry Kjell. I have only just seen your PM. I used to get an email notification once, but this hasn't been happening lately. I still have the pickup, but am going to keep it for the time being. The idea was to upgrade to a later model automatic pickup that my wife could drive as well. With the chang...
