I'd say you were just plain lucky that none of the dwelling was affected.
I've seen blows like this take out one house and leave the one right next to it unscathed.
Looking at the dwelling roof I wouldn't class it as a rating that would supersede that which moved a container 10 ft sideways.

Good to see that all your hard work didn't go down the drain though.

Yeah, we are very fortunate the house is okay. I have no plans to rebuild the roof over the containers. Don't argue with Mother Nature, right?

Wow. That was some storm. The western suburbs of Udon copped it, and I am guessing that you may be that way. Barney's place is NW - how did you fare Barney?
BTW, the 3" thick insulation batts in silver plastic that I am using are 180 THB for 60 cm X 4 M.
Thanks for the info on the insulation. The house is pretty much due north of Udon, about ten minutes from Ban Na Kha.
