Tradesmen, land clearance and plumbing

Post by migrant » 29 Aug 2015 00:30

Being a new property owner I will have a lot of questions so please bear with me!!

Immediate items I want to do

1) Clear trees away and some landscaping
2) Pour a concrete pad, maybe 4 meters square
3) Some rough plumbing (outside not in a house)

In the states I would do both myself, but not knowing the availability of tools, materials, etc will probably look to hire someone

Any suggestions as to who?

Thanks!

Despite the tourism and economic lull there is still a lot of building going on in BS so any of these crews will be able to do this work.

Land clearance costs about 800-1000 baht for a couple of rai - before you pour concrete you may want to back fill the land, this costs 800 baht per load.

Thanks Buksida

I'll maybe stop and ask a crew. Initially just looking for a small patio concrete pad and outdoor sink/shower

House will come later

I'd still land-fill first, especially if you're near the sea.

It takes at least six months to settle before concrete can be poured.
