    A good reason never to lend money to anyone, that's a Banks job,

    My father once said if you have anyone hanging around you and

    you want them gone, just lend them a few bob and you will never

    see them again.

    regards worgeordie

    I like it lol!  My father taught me a slightly different one:  "Before borrowing from a friend think which it is you really need the most, the money or the friend".

    When do we get proper information from this department, it changes every day. Very sad.

    I learnt a long time ago that with regard to anything in Thailand it will be yes, no, yes, no, maybe, yes, no, for 6 to 12 months and then suddenly you need to be ready in 10 minutes but you really should have been here yesterday you idiot farang, and dont forget your wallet!

    I finished off a house for the girlfriend. She already had posts and roof up. The soffiting was not vented and there was no ridge vent. We used cheapest issan bricks and when the house was finished it was extremely hot. I wish they had used soffiting with the holes all through it. The temperature in the attic space was usually 10 to 15 degrees hotter than the rooms. All I could do was add vents at the gable ends. And then I started replaceing soffit boards one by one. Dropped temperatures in attic way down but not as much as continuous roof vent would.

    And then I left. haha

    We have managed the heat quite well by building with Qcon, slotted soffits, and a louvred boston hip each end allowing good flow through.  The Bluescope Clean in white is also a good investment especially with the 30 year guarantee.  Then to finish it off we built a 4 meter wide verandah completely around the house creating large cool shaded areas.

    Who said I don't speak Thai?  I probably speak it better that at least 80% of other farangs.

     

    Really, can the TV Dreary Dans and Moaning Martins do a bunk to another thread?

     

    Your lack of ability does not necessarily spread to other people.  There's a bigger world out there than just you!  🤣

    Nobody said you dont speak Thai did they?   I said "if" ??  Try reading my post first.

     

    And  "if" you dont speak Thai and have to go through your wife everytime they ignore your plans or they cut a piece out of your toilet door because they have hung it swinging the wrong way etc (yes Ive seen it) you may very well get close to divorce.  You obviously need to read more building posts.

     

    And the way you have reacted to my post also suggests that indeed you wont make it through without some calming medication lol!

    I actually clicked through on this with great surprise thinking a Thai General had been prosecuted but then obviously very quickly realized this simply does not happen in Thailand.

    I did the same till I realised he wouldnt be a FORMER Major General in Thailand.  He would still keep his position, pension, etc and get 50% off for good behaviour, 50% off for wearing khaki trousers and a promotion to head of ethics dept!

    Who says we'll divorce?  She's almost 52 and I'm 72 - she relies on me to survive, so she'd be shooting herself in the foot. 

    Oh, wait, that's their forte ...

     

    It isn't going to happen though, she's been as straight as a die for 14 years 

     

    If you are going to build a house in Thailand you have a good chance of divorcing especially if you dont speak Thai....believe me I have been there!
