  1. New roof advice

    When I inquired in Aus they said they sell them in sets of 6 and have them for my Elebana (Monier type) tiles. Evidently 6 is about the number you need, but would also depend on roof design. They said they would sell me 2 to take back to Thailand, but I didn't buy any as they said the ventilators were unsuitable for my cathedral roof. Sorry I didn't know people were interested or I would have bought the 2 and brought them back. I could have bought them back as I bought a couple of extra bags as SWMBO bought out half of Bunnings. As digression, I did buy some nifty stick welding magnets. Looks great to me. They'll probably have them here soon. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  2. New roof advice

    Hi, yep I think so, I mean to get back to them and ask what they recommend for cathedral roof. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  3. New roof advice

    Looks great. I'm in Aus and got in touch with the makers of the vents Simon introduced. After some discussion, seems they don't work for a cathedral roof, so I'm a little disappointed as was going to bring some back. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk

  6. Isaan translation

    Sorry tgeezer, I meant my post as a general reply, not as a reply to you. I would never question you or your knowledge. "I" seems to stand for the male and "e" female. If the persons name is "Tick" the "I Tick" would be for a male named Tick. Now "I sut", seems to me to mean a bit more than "that bastard animal". Not that my wife has ever called me the latter in jest. After 30 + years of marriage, she can sometimes call me what she likes. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  7. hydro/aquaponic gardening

    Hi Andy. That's super impressive mate. I've got some of my aquaponics gear (2 x 1000 L fish tanks, 4x growth beds and hydroseal rocks), been waiting for me to start for nearly a year now. Just finished my swimming pool installation and plan to get into the aquaponics when i get back in late January. I was thinking of building a similar green house to you, but with openable windows on the top small vertical sections. I'm in Isaan near Mukdahan and think I will need some convection currents when it gets really hot. I think I have room for 6 x 1000 L fish tanks in my fish room. I'm going to visit Robert at Aquaponics Thailand when I get back then I think I would love to make a trip up from Isaan to look at your great set up and learn a bit. Thanks very much for the post.

  9. Isaan translation

    Whats wrong with 'Mr Dick' or 'I' meaning the man Dick? I think I hear it used referring to a man and it this case 'the man Dick', not 'that prick Dick.' Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  10. Building a House in Issan

    I can't see the size of your outside top floor veranda, but if you intend to spend time there they need to be wide. I like 3m width. Don't run your waste water and toilets into the same tank. Make provision for an outside Isaan style kitchen downstairs. Run speaker and CAT 5 computer cable when running the power cable. I didn't, but I would also get a structural engineer, so construction joins are shown. Make your floors one level so you don't break an ankle when you're drunk and disorderly. Probably try to get CPAC to install your tiles. I was smart, I downloaded all the detailed CPAC instructions in Thai and gave to the non CPAC roof installer who said 'we don't do it that way in Thailand', "but but, it's written by a Thai company in the Thai language"; grins all round. So much for smartness. Also, put in guttering and downpipes, going to 4" pipes underground, taking the water out to the outside street gutters (or storage tanks). Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  11. Just about to fly out for Chrissy, so while in Banggers visited one of my favourite places Baan Mo. There is a shop that just seems to cater for the microprocessor in this project. All sorts of sensors, boards, add ons, etc. I've attached a pic of their card details. . Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  12. Roller Shutter Manufacturer & Installation

    A few of us have ordered panel doors and roller shutters from this place in China. www.masterwellhk.com . Ms Lillian is our contact at Masterwell, and seems to know her job. My external mounted grain wood finish roller shutter costs about $us 700 complete with remote controls and everything. Nearly 3m wide and 2.5 high. One of the guys already has these installed and says they are high quality products. You have to get an import company and make sure the paperwork forms are 100% correct so you don't pay import duty as is an Asian trade. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk

  15. "Bangkok" means what?

    That could be correct, but there was also another theory taught at AUA, and that was the waters all meeting together, like a bottleneck...eg kok nam. But, I have been wrong 99.6% of the time. Merry Christmas anyway, off to Aus to relive the cricket highlights. [emoji23] Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
