Hi everyone
I am new to this forum but have spent weeks trawling through google and other forums
for some help on building my house in Phayao.
Does anyone know a builder in that area?
Or one that will travel at not too much extra cost?
Thanks

Should not be hard will depend on what you wish to construct.
Will it be a great farang edifice or closer to a Thai trad or not so?

It will be a Farang brick build with some that style additions.
3 Bedroom with outdoor cooking area aswell as an indoor kitchen.

Have you seen Dazza's thread? He is down near Udon and went Thai style, but you could get some ideas from his experience.

You are going to live in this house? Is it maybe, for a girlfriend?

Dazza'a Our Project
We live in Ireland at the moment but want to move back as soon as we can.
Spent a lot of time there and get on great with the inlaws.

With regard to Dazza's post I just flicked quickly through it on my iPhone and have two words.
Holy ****.... 555
Did he ever say how much it cost ?
It looks huge :)

My Thai wife found an excellent local builder, he has now finished an extension for us on her house and I could not fault his work or price; he dis-swayed me from having wood rafters and welded this roofing; look at local builders projects and see what they can do in your area.
His helping hands were paid THB300/day and they grafted for that.

Optical Illusion, it looks smaller as the thread goes on. I can't remember if he mentioned price.

Once you put the word out builders will appear from nowhere 555, how far are you from Chiang Kham?

Are you in Thailand ATM ?...............................I did the research and inspections of some builders previous builds a few months ago in Chiang Rai and chose a builder from Chiang Kham, chosen from a choice of 4 builders, one of the reasons is this guy speaks english, the 2 x houses we looked at that he built were great, the owners spoke highly of him, the speaking english is an important factor for me when my Thai is very limited 555

Not there at the moment but have inlaws there.
Did you end up using the builder you found?
English is not hugely important as my wife is fluent in Thai and English.
If not speaking English means they are cheaper then Thai is good for me :)
