Hi Alan,

Here’s the story why work on building our house in Pakchong stopped – twice!

Subject Alan, News from Thailand and it ain’t that pretty…
Hi Alan,
 
Are you sure you want to build a house and retire in Thailand?

Are you the kind of person who can deal with problems like this:-

You pay your Thai builder a stage payment before he has finished that stage, and then he demands yet more money to finish it.

We worry if this builder is going to walk away from our project, leaving it in limbo and pocketing all the up-front money we have paid him.

The drama unfolds as I try to sort things out with the house build and get some holiday at the same time.

Anyway here we go with a seven day synopsis of the story so far as I try to unravel this mess…

Subject Alan, More bad News from Thailand – It’s Getting Worse…
Hi Alan,
 
This is Day 8 in Thailand and it’s not getting any better.

The builder is playing cat-and-mouse and the quality of the work is appalling at best.

As the Thai house build project stumbles into another day my enthusiasm for this whole retiring in Thailand project saps away. This is for real – it’s not a joke.

Subject Alan, Thailand Retirement House Build Plans Dashed
Hi Alan,
 
This is Day 9 in Thailand and it’s getting even worse…
 
I’m really beginning to think that my “retire in Thailand” dreams are just that – dreams.
 
This is turning out to be “Thai Retirement House Building Project From Hell – And I’m Sick Of It”

Subject Alan, Builder Ruins Gate Runner – But Check Out My Office!
Hi Alan,
 
Builder Ruins The Gate Runner – But Check Out My Office!
 
Our builder is still on the rampage to wreck our house plans in Thailand by driving carelessly over the gate runner and ruining the beautiful slide-smoothing gate (Photos + Video)
 
But I have found a ‘heaven’ only a few minutes from our house (guess Kanyah has been hiding it from me) where I have set up my ‘office’. Be sure to watch the movie.

Hi Alan,
 
A beautiful double rainbow appears over our land in Pakchong.
 
Could this be signaling an end to problems we are having with our builder and marking a new start?

Subject Alan, Kanyah Threatens to Kick the Builder Off The Project
Hi Alan,
 
It seems now that I’m not alone in throwing fits about the poor quality and slowness of the progress on our house build project.
 
Now Kanyah has joined in and has told me she intends to give our builder the boot and finish the project herself – helped by Jalan. Also everything you wanted to know about how not to pour concrete and how to cover up the defects. Some pretty aweful photos and movies.

Thai Retirement Visa Requirements
 
http://retiringinthailand.net/thai-visas/thai-retirement-visa-requirements
 
One of the best sources of information about the official Thai governement websites and the requirements for a Thai visa that you can get to retire in Thailand.
 
As far as I know it is the only website that clearly tabulates the differences between a Thai “O” Visa and a Thai “O-A” Visa.
 
How Much Money You Need To Retire In Thailand?
 
A long reply to the question “I am now considering moving to Pak Chong. Can I make it on $1400. per month and what should I expect?”
