    Must have been 12 people
    And the little plastic chair they gave me just collapsed!

    ^I think every village has a "farang plastic chair" designed to collapse after 12 pints... 55

    Also the obligatory snake that always appears in the bathroom on your first morning...

    This is actually a series of rooms in a resort.

    How they got permission to build in a mangrove , I dont know , but the water and environment is very clean - no visible sewerage outlets , garbage or soap bubbles.

    Great reception/hang out place for a snack or coffee.



    This is all on Koh Payam , where an old friend named Geir moved to many years back ..

    A beautiful big home under construction I saw a few days ago out near Phan, the finish on the washed aggregate walls was amazing, it also had a pond and waterfall built at the entrance, I asked the worker onsite if I could look inside and I wasn't sure if he said yes or no 555, so i just stood at the door and looked inside.................

    What is this Gav? An old tree trunk carved into a seat? Guess it has a back story?

    Your correct SE.............................The pond is next to the undercover parking, right near the side entrance where those wooden stairs are. Looks like it will be nearly 1m deep when finished, there was a lot of plumbing involved. I'm not sure if the rocks were real or man made, they had a sealer of some type over them which gave the wet look.

    ^ Thais love these things , but 90% of them eventually go unmanaged or leak.
    The surrounding wall goes green , or the whole thing dries up.
    End up eyesores.

    The idea sounds good at the time ..

    I saw this house the other day, although it looked a bit neglected I think the style is great, I especially liked the outdoor area down the complete side of the house, that would give you any breeze from 3 x directions and provide a great entertaining area........................

    I reckon those roof tiles are the best in the business.
    Just need a guerney..
    And the big outdoor area is great.

    This is one of those 'stitch in time' Thai houses - that needs some work now.

    It does appear to be a very good strong build.

    Looks like a government house that you find in sleepy little villages out in Nakhon Nowhere. You know, the villages where the locals live in shacks but there are 3 big buildings: a gold covered temple, a big bank made of polished stainless steel and lots of glass, and the aforementioned government building. 55
