The Rice Field Project : Building a bungalow part 1

Living in Thailand
Design of our bungalow


As part of Living in Thailand we did build our own house between the rice fields of Pua in North Thailand. The main project was finished 3 months ago, for more information see my postings about The Rice Field Project. We always had the idea of starting our own homestay or guesthouse so we are now starting to build a first bungalow on our almost 1 rai land. It will be a simple bungalow, about 70cm above the ground and 36 sqm. big. The floor size is included the toilet & bathroom but excluded a 14 sqm. verhandha overlooking the rice fields and mountains of Doi Phu Kha. So just before I travelled in Vietnam for 25 days we did choice a construction company (as the company who did build our house did not have time) and had a chat with the boss. We agreed on a price and type of bungalow to be build. So when I came back from Vietnam we had a chat again about more details and the next day we signed a building contract, paid deposit and received a building design. And that same day they started to allocate the exact location of the bungalow, digging holes and pour in cement as foundation for the poles. That went quick! Unfortunately it did start to rain again so no working today.

The bungalow will have separated toilet and bathroom. And the bungalow will be build in so called loft style, so no ceiling. The project should be done in about 6 to 8 weeks, but at most within 2 months. Now to think of a name of our homestay!
