New Home Build "LET THE HEADACHES BEGIN"

My highest ceiling is @3.5 m and feels very roomy and free. The cool zone is everything below the top meter, or higher if you have a ceiling vent. What are you talking about when you say "ceiling vent"? I was thinking about this also at 5.5m the heat will be up there, no place to go. By ceiling ven...

New Home Build "LET THE HEADACHES BEGIN"

I've also got the foil behind the tiles, but honestly, I think that was a waste. It rips easily when installed and I am of the opinion airflow is what really matters. Everything else is just extra. The foil backed gypsum is more protection against leaks than insulation. With your steep pitch, airfl...

Schooling in Udon Thani

My son will be 4 next month and is far ahead of where he should be academically. The wife works with him twice daily for about an hour each time and we encourage learning through fun activities he enjoys. He love playing GTA V on his X-Box 360. The swear words have no meaning as they are not enforce...

Schooling in Udon Thani

Just an update (as if anyone really cares, right?). My Precious tested into Udon Pit EP. There were 60 seats available and thousands (so I am told) vying for a seat. She tested well below where I thought she would be, but that is more incentive for her to up her game and a wake up call that she is i...

Living standards in Thailand over next 10 years

@OP Living standards are going to go up not for the reasons stated, but due to a more fundamental trend. Local Thais are land rich and cash poor. They also like to keep up with the Pornses. Over the recent several years, land has been converted to cash at a relative breathtaking pace. That trend wil...

obamacare is a joke, good for illegals and welfare people

"WTF do they contribute?" It is a fact that the poor save far less and spend far more than those who are wealthier. One may not like or care to believe it, but the #1 way to boost any economy is to "give" money to the poor. They will spend it on goods and services immediately. That helps create jobs...

Most people who continue to "not like Obamacare" are people who still have not gone to the site(s) to sign up and shop for a better plan than they currently have now.

Bytching about it requires less effort.

Will the ARMY step in again

According to what I have heard/read about the matter, the Constitution basically says the PM can do something which would put the little pink ...

The Base / Sansiri Condo open!

I'd be interested in more scoops about organizations opening up shop looking to provide staff residences (ala Bangkok Hospital, et al). I am sure we will see some of the big boys relocate from Bangkok at some point. When/Who is what I would like to know. A few of them could fill up chunks of units i...

Is the Thai Goverment Broke

"I think patience is going to be the key right now."

Truer words have never been spoken. As we all wait for the sht truck to back up to the fan, now is the time to corner the market for mops, buckets, and sponges. ;)

New Global Grand Opening

I'll be glad when they open something on 210 West. I've been holding off building a pool and pool house until they do. ;) We could easily get there via the network of back roads and avoid any Ring Road traffic. I used to hop on my samlor and visit the tool places on a whim just to pass the day. Nowa...
