cheapest house to buy / build in isaan

Recommended Posts

         consider i buy / build a small home ( and i mean small )  in isaan,   what is the cheapest viable option there is,

say the in laws gave us a piece of land,   i was thinking of a small bungalow thai wooden home type , maybe a small simple one bed brick build , or a container house, 2 containers together one for bedroom etc,  obviously thats all we would need if ever i was to go down that path again,    i say again because i did buy build ex wifey a house 12 years ago in udon thani but the rate then was something like 73 baht to GBP and all in it only cost me approx 10k gbp.

 

rate now is 38 and forecasted to go down another 19% in next 4 years ........i have recently just been trawling through some currency forums and websites,

         hence im battening down the hatches,   at this moment its just a thought,    a small dream if you will,      after all im getting on and i really dont want to be spending months upon months in pattaya again never mind the 10000,s of baht blown in the same shi**y bars / sois of pattaya.

 

     any prices or links to thai style houses, teak homes in isaan ,  container homes ( meant to be the in thing these days and apparently the cheapest option too but i just do not know. 

 

    told the GF  im not prepared to keep going to pattaya anymore,    last trips are costing me at least 4-5k everyday,  its no longer doable for me.

Dude, no disrespect, i do not want to fart on your parade, but you need to get real, get a hold of reality.

 

Pattaya aint the real Thailand.

In Thailand or elsewhere?

Couldn't imagine living in a steel container in the heat of Thailand.

Full cement block (rectangle) with a wood roof. You can find laborers in Isaan that will work for 300 baht a day and do a pretty decent job

If you already have the land, you can have a small Isaan style house built for under 250k.

 

  This week , i have seen a pre-fabricated ,  metal framework house , 

 delivered on a wide bodied low loader , and laid down on a ready made concrete base .

   I expect it will be occupied  within a mounth . Planning permission not reqd .

Containerkingsthailand   .com have a web site for actual container homes they have built and delivered to small villages in Isaan.

Looking at their website, all the pictures are stock (scraped) photos from other companies. Are they really legit?

avoid living in one of the estates where all houses are crammed together and look the same. full of inconsiderate middle class idiots with barking dogs. some of them have 5 ratty small dogs barking all day... nightmare
