Company in Vientaine doing fram cad steel homes, delivered to udon , only has a fram cad site up but can supply frame for kit home cladded, any one going over there might like to investigate, I will check out his operation next time in Udon, Stel a better light weight cooler solution than the red brick render system, if the operator gets it right there will be a good market here for the system

Did you ever get the name and contact details of this company?

Yes I did , visited the factory, but I think they closed down, have not heard much about Laos operations from Framecad, email them they use Bluescope steel from australia, framecad design and build the machines, and supply the software to run it, so if any one in Thailand or Laos has one of their machines they will be able to tell you, Bluescope Steel has a plant in Khon Khan, not sure if the roll and make the steel frames, but they will point you in the right direction, 2 choices for you to chase up, they was a big company in Pucket Island rolling frames,

Peter Blythe is the man in the know on steel framing in OZ, check him out, give him a email, he may also be able tell you who has framing machine in Thailand Laos Veitnam, he's more than helpful,

With the recent posts on termite problems, it could be a good move to consider steel.
Would be other considerations covering internal fixings but Kally would be the man to ask there.

If they treat the timber pre purchases, LOSP to H1-H3 requirements there would be no problem, 10,000s houses built in OZ every year, very little complaints about termites, under slab treatment, stainless mesh for block walls, termimesh, vast ways to stop termites, my home was all timber here, no problems I used the correct method from the beginning.

Once there in, difficult to treat.

My slab done back in the '80s with the good stuff, not allowed anymore.
Under external walls they use the orange tape with the chemical built in BUT according to the blokes that put it in , only 10 year guarantee.
Saw stainless mesh used a few times but seems it was too expensive or for some other reason they have all reverted back to the orange stuff.
Seen a couple use the perimeter underground tubing and the pest guys pump chemicals in every so often.
I remember south Aus was really bad for the critters and nearly all building was brick/block inside and out.
Where I live in the last 30 years they seem to have moved in in numbers also.
