I stayed in a traditional wooden style house which is actually a hotel complex in Bangkok. Real old style Thailand in the Nonthaburi area.

It is a group of 6 or 7 buildings, all of the same style. They are specialists in weddings etc and while we were there, a wedding took place. Not mine by the way :)

You have a good eye for things and seem to go out of the normal path

I like almost everything you do on holiday!

It’s a bizarre place really. There’s an 8 lane highway next door but it’s hidden by trees.
The name of the place is Dhabkwan resort and Spa. All the buildings are the same and the reception/restaurant is of the same style.
Not much to do locally but Koh Kret is quite close. There is also a nice park just across the river. I’d recommend for a night or two just for the experience of staying in one of these houses. And yes, the mozzie net was used.
I booked with Expedia, Two people, breakfast, total cost £70.

It would be nice to line the walls and ceiling of a home theatre or living room to look like that. Expensive but nowadays.

no idea in the toilet, needs work(you could do a shit and watch it float having a coffee later!), it would be a good buy to move to another site and renovate/expand- 8 lane highways kill its value.

The ceiling is a not original, they made bulkheads for aircon and hide roof framing- original would be higher up, exposed collar ties/rafters/panels (like on the balcony) and possibly with bunks or mezzanine loft. The turned balastrading suggests it is circa 1930/40 but that could be redone also in other efforts on it.

Nice place would cost a fortune to build now- labour and material(shipped from cambo-teak ant proof).

Apparently they where built during the Ayutthaya period, whenever that was?
The panels inside are machined- had to be when electricity was available so that's like early 20th c at lest- it could be multiple reno's dating back by the concrete underneath also suggests otherwise- the polish on it is modern also PU.

Here is an idea we been thinking about:

Ao wants to possibly move her mom to the village, maybe in a year
But we wouldn't be ready to build in a year

I want to wait for the right land situation then it will take a while to clear/settle the land to build

So she wants be brother to build a small house for her mom on the Aunt's land

I am ok with that because if we think of what style we want to the build the actual house, we can move the small house and use it as a guest house.
Two bedrooms, small living area, no kitchen

My wife thinks he brother can build it for 300k

Anybody have any idea what it would cost for a small house like the 1st pic?

The 1st pic is something that would interest me

2nd pic is a modern style my wife likes

^ you can buy kit homes very similar to the ones you have pictured...might be a good alternative as then its assembly only and then possibly disassemble/reassemble on the new land...
