Re: recomendation of a nice estate in Udon please

FYI phase two at Le Cellini mostly have same size land plots as phase one. The houses are a bit smaller, and interior materials used are just slightly less luxurious than those in phase one (flooring etc) which lowers the prices to 7.9-8.4 MB. Five houses in second phase now under construction (yea,...

Re: Housing Projects

The last I heard it was stalled due to financial challenges of the developer! Ask at BB Resort if truly interested.

Re: Biggest volume restaurant is ???

Some simple noodle joints fill up hundreds of bowls per day. If volume is portions served, they are right up there. Their revenue may be low due to price.

Re: Housing Projects

In one year never saw a water truck in our project. Plenty of water in Srichumchen Road when heavy rains, about 40cm deep, though our project streets do not flood. We did suffer a shock at 04h30 this morning as I sipped my first coffee. A stampede of five white cows quickly clopping past my house, t...

Re: Housing Projects

Le Cellini sold two more houses in recent weeks, both to Thais. This brings the ratio to 4 Thai and 3 farang owned, with four units remaining for sale of the 11 pre-built larger homes. Phase two still has four choice corner lots, for the toned down but still substantial houses from 7.4 MB and up. Si...

Re: Housing Projects

Khondam, re labor supplier, no idea, why don't you come ask when you take the grand tour? Sorry they don't post that detail on the internet either. Strike four. Seriously though, have a look, then once I see a farang face or two on the tour I might reduce the pumping. Security and blending in: Yeste...

Re: Does anyone actually enjoy their front balcony?

If the view is nice, one enjoys spending time there. Mature landscaping with proper maintenance can help. Investing in larger plants and trees at the beginning will help. It does not cost that much relative to the price of house and land. I met a renter who took a run of the mill older house in the ...

Re: Housing Projects

Tony and others, responding to your warm wishes and good advice and pondering the future. If I build a 5MB house on rice fields surrounded by farmers and labor workers, would I blend in? I certainly would not blend in at a housing estate that cost 1-2 MB. Not because I am showy, I will never have a ...

Come look for me in our now infamous project, and I will show you exactly where to go within 5 minutes of the ring road, where two farangs bought 12 rai and intend to do exactly what you say, in what are actually very nice surroundings with many...

Is he a failure who can provide the best he can easily afford, for his wife the mother of his children, with a big asset in the wife's name, that gives them all financial security?
