    All the tiling in the house is done, it just needs grouting, they have started tiling the balcony and stairs
    They have built the kitchen units, and the toilet unit, although Ohm aint happy with the toilet and they are redoing it (she was in BKK for a few days and came back to it)
    The architrave around the windows and columns has been done
    Still a fair bit to go yet

    Mrs had sent these from Surin, safety first, but LINE and FB are blocked in China so only seen today.Last year about a mile from these photos there is a rice packing plant which has its own coffee shop (nice, recommended) but some workers were set a task of repairing a sign, they got a Forklift at its maximum height with another guy balancing on one of the forks to reach the sign, I was driving by at the time of the upward movement, I had to pull over to make sure I was witnessing this and not dreaming it.

    Doing the rice in Ohm's fields, photos from Ohm.
    Last year we did a dry plant and this year we decided to do it wet because you get more rice at the end of it. But its a lot harder. Dry again next year

    Stunning scenery. I'm in Kalasin now and rode a thirty km cycle track this morning, starting at 6am, across the rice fields. Simply stunning. When I got back the outlaws were quizzical as to why my friend and I love it so much. Long may they remain so as it's one part of Thailand neither the tourists nor comfy, rich Thais have managed to mess up. The people in those areas are different gravy also. I'd recommend any forum members planning on staying in the sticks to try it.

    Great snaps, Wayne. Many thanks.

    This is going to be my back garden so to speak, the house is at the other end of the 3.5 acres. Along with a little Banana Plantation, 4 ponds and a chicken coup
    We have a great view from our balcony

    Wow! This is really taking shape. Looks fantastic! Did you do all the design yourself, Wayne?

    Thanks Allan
    Me and Ohm sat down with the company and discussed what we wanted, i.e foundations, room size, roof shape, balcony etc. So its all our own choosing but as for doing the architectural stuff then no mate

    The views from your kitchen and lounge look wonderful. How far are you from your nearest neighbours?

    about 100 yards to the left and 200 to the right as i am looking from my balcony but nothing to my front, except our land, but at the moment its quiet, far better than the 0600 loud speaker talking crap in the village 55555555

    Looks fantastic mate. Bet you can't wait to move in.
    How much do you reckon it's cost you, if you don't mind me asking? Just the build/materials, not the land.

    Thank you

    The land was already Ohm's so not a cost on that anyway.....the build agreed with the Company was 1.6m, but we have got bits and pieces ourselves, Coving, Skirting, different shower etc, which will put the price up a bit

    Yep, fingers crossed November should be the month we move in and have the blessing ceremony
    Looking forward to it
