  2. To be fair a pal spends about 10kpm but think a fair bit goes on the pool pump. (another luxury a spartan avoids when he has use of a condo pool) Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  3. Ouch! Wouldn’t be smiling if I spent 45x3.5baht x 30 per month.....about 4500bt? Have never had a house with glass in the windows (shutters) in 15 years so no air con, fans have been fine all but the very hottest days, but presently building a glass windowed house so will have to have three units. Will have to ration the family! Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect

    House Build stage payment scheme?

    Well our house has roared on since 25th August. The concrete work up to the main slab level is all in and done, and the carport area is smoothed to a finish. The columns are up, and today some blocks went up and the largest pair of what would be called the wall plates were painted and erected inc welding to long lengths. As Sirineou suggested I started sketching up some plans to give an idea, but they look awful and need doing better. It should probably be done in its own thread, but as u guys here all helped I’ll at least kick off here. The main problem is not enough minutes in the day! Briefly, it’s a 65m x 22m lot 60m away from a country road at what was the bottom L end of grandma's garden. I put up a chalet last year which was going to be storage but has been properly built and Mum's moved in. It’s a 4x4m room and a 4x4m outside area but large rooof overhang and awning so more space. Lovely pomelo tree outside it. Missus built wall all round, track to road, and water tanks and elec supply. I’m doing the house. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect

    On first layout orange is mums chalet with open Thai kitchen and store behind Red house I s going up as we speak. On second plan I did a couple of things I like. 1. I’ve put the chalet and house 3metres apart.the chalet roof will be extended to the nearest wall of the slightly raised house and the ground concreted. With just this I have four dimensions of a room (study) 2. There's a garden wall on the left 2.7m from the main house Line. I had the idea to extend our bathroom out to the wall it will then be bright and can then look out onto the he green "atrium" area. If I extend the aforesaid "study" to the garden wall this can also view the atrium which I envisage having water with tall water plants in. Our bedroom will have a modest window either side of the bed which will also benefit from the atrium. So a dead area behind the house will become a great and useful feature.

    Price for my Phantom ?

    Middle of night right now but will reply when brain in gear Oh I should have said It’s in CM. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  7. I got a very low mileage xlnt condition Phantom a few years ago. It had been kept in a basement car park out of sun and only used on occasional trips to Thailand by someone. I think I paid 55k for it which at the time was a v good deal I think. I put Dunlop tyres on it from Japan with a four month wait. I have ridden it rarely and now have early Parkinsons and probably better I sell it. I'm told prices have come down a lot because of alternative bikes now on the market of a similar retro type. But it is still a very solid underused bike with 14,000km on the clock though I believe 14 years old. How much should I ask or expect to sell it for? Thanks

    New flooring and painting job

    If I were you i'd be more specific especially about the flooring type. Parquet and tile are two different trades.

    7965 is a radical change in price and I’m attracted by the narrower screen and better sound and of course phablet.....wondering about import duty on M3 and/ or if I can somehow reverse the iPad buy Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect

    Well I've still been following the thread and was kinda interested in the M3 but LO AND BEHOLD I dropped by the hospital where the wife was working late. She had a kind of inane grin on her face, pushed a bag towards me and said happy anniversary. I felt it and said it’s not a book. It was an iPad mini 4.with 128 gb Very sweet and she’s got to pay 14900 in 24 interest free goes. Well of course I’m using the mini 3 to post this and I can get by but.......home button inoperable have to use digital......screen cracked again.....choices occasionally come on the screen like usual, except some won’t work. .......typing delete sometimes acts like new line order. On the plus side thbattery still in perfectly good nick after a good run. My one thought is yet again my wif's been impetuous, and I’ve wonder if a mini 4 or mini 3 could be picked up much cheaper somewhere. Because she mentioned there’s a larger model with a stylus same price is that an iPad Pro? And I could change as I haven’t opened or if a mini can come in cheap maybe get both. Thanx for all input. So a change is Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect

    House Build stage payment scheme?

    Petermik's roof looks very neat but to be honest most CPAC roofs rely on a few of the joints being mortared rather than interlocking. If I was ever likely to sell the house I'd use CPAC but I think that's highly unlikely, especially as the wife's mum provided the land and wife built the garden walls etc and half the land is available to grow stuff for the kitchen, chicken eggs etc. which is a nice mix. It's a half hour from CM up the river which could be nearer but not with a free plot of land and anyway a half hour a trip is just right for a good podcast.
