5 years ago bought a 50 mtr x 50 mtr square of land  in cha am then proceeded to design and have built a one bedroom lounge kitchen bathroom house with a fairly sophisticated water  recycling system  auto generator for backup etc. Etc. etc. discovered near the end of job the builder was a total tosspot, and, after he nearly killed my 5 year old son with shoddy welding on a main steel concrete gate, we through him of site. he then turned up later that night with his son knocked on  the door and as soon as I opened it beat the sh1t out of me and his son attempted to attack me with a digging machete. I ran for help, called the police who as is normal didn't want to come unless bribed., had the building inspected by  surveyor from bkk   who condemned the property and told us not to pay the remaining 50k baht . (we had already spent 1.5 million on the house.)

 

we have been paying a security chap to keep an eye on the house and look after the two dogs on the property., disheartened we haven't been to the property for  2.5 years when we come this week we find there has been a fire caused by a rechargeable torch bursting into flames, setting alight to a large plastic box of  my sons toys filling the house with acrid soot etc. (the extent of the  disfiguration was played down by the security guy ) an attempt to mitigate the  state of the house he had a helper clean the property   and in so doing destroyed a brand new bathroom sink, the mice and rats have eaten into all the plumbing  half the wiring in the house now doesn't work. etc etc etc wife wants to pull it down sell the land  breaks my heart as I personally put so much work into the damned house. we also ov course have all the brand new furniture and fridges freezers etc etc

as a final we have taken legal action against the builder both civil for the property and criminal for the attack he got probation  and aparantly has no funds. yet he is building all over puket etc.

Must have been some 1 bedroom house for 1.5 million,why pull it down just sell as an unfinished project ,you can’t leave property’s empty here the high humidity destroys everything.

 I built a couple of 1 bedroom places to and the same as you sacked my builder 2 months into the build unlike your builder he did not come and attack me though.

its all down to a case of impulse we bought the land  and I thought  put up a cple of bungalows, and a pool etc like small holiday resort, I could potter about changing light bulbs  etc have a beer with  visitors  etc  but it all turned very very sour
