Re: 30/30/30 Leases deemed invalid in Phuket again

Quote 'If it did all go tits up, then the GF can, yes, sell the land and house but the next buyer will purchase knowing they must carry the usufruct as it stands now. I can't be thrown off till I die. The usufruct stays with the land no matter who owns it.' In reality, nobody is going to buy a prope...

Re: John's budget build

Back in November last year, I visited Cpac at Ban Lueam (Udon Thani) and was quoted 2150 THB/cube for 180 steng concrete delivered on site at the village. When we returned to firm up an order in April, they said 2700 THB (including 35 kms transport which in reality is less than 25 kms). I didn't say...

I don't anticipate any problem with the Amphur. My wife will plead to have it registered; because if it isn't, I will stop bringing money from Oz to build the house.

Re: 30/30/30 Leases deemed invalid in Phuket again

News that won't bother me too much Bob. I am about to register my 30 year lease over the land that I bought for my wife and am now building on, along with a Userfruct Deed. Leases expire on the death of a natural person lessee (although I think that the Userfruct Deed does not, giving the ability to...

Re: John's budget build

What ever happened to the build ajarnudon? Hope the budget build is on track????? OK, here is a serialised version of what has taken place ... I have commissioned a builder from Udon (known as Geng to me, but Kang to some others) to undertake stage one, being the retaining wall and garage. It turns...

Re: John's budget build

Thanks for the heads up MTD. Don't intend drinking it, but I'll see how things pan out. Maybe an automatic bypass when the tank is full, with manual shunts. Probably less than 5% of villagers have a tank/pump setup on the town supply. The many that do have a tank/pump are using bore water.

Re: John's budget build

I believe he is currently enjoying a cooler climate in Aus at the minute. :D From what he said to me this is a very low key start at the task. Until he finally retires & can have a daily 'hands on' management of the build he does not expect too much progression.. Hi Barney and Bob Sorry that I have...

Rolls of foam strip

I am looking for foam strips to isolate thermal transfer from external horizontal slabs to house walls. Does anyone know where I can source it?

Re: Clearing land

Our 730 sq m block was covered with 2 metre high Guinea grass. Paid a local guy with a brushcutter to clear it and remove the grass from the block. Took one man two days and cost 1,000 baht. Controlling regrowth with Roundup.

Re: John's budget build

Hi. Sorry I have been absent as work has taken over my life for a while. Steel is a must, and plastic depending on circumstance. If you are pouring onto sand fill, then plastic is needed to retain water for the curing process of the concrete. If you are pouring onto compacted clay, then a few days o...

Re: Mick's House Build

Don't think there will be any problem JR. The holes are 2 metres deep, and for the most part it is just a screen, not a retaining wall.

Re: John's budget build

I came back again last weekend and put a lockable tap onto the blue pipe and was pleasantly surprised by the strong flow from the town supply thru the 3/4" pipe. This will probably mean that I can save on power costs by bypassing the tank and pump except in case of need. I had been scratching my hea...

Re: John's budget build

How about an earth wire too please. :D :D The revised thinking about the retaining wall is to proceed with it along the southern and western boundaries (left and rear when viewed from the soi), and to terrace the northern (right) side with garden beds. The 4m x 10.2m garage/workshop/laundry) will s...
