Building Process in Thailand
The construction process in Thailand, is fairly simply. The first step is to contact us. You can do this by clicking on the ‘contact us’ at the top of the page and completing the form. We respond quickly and then gather all the information we require to help you. This can all be done by email to make it easy, or alternatively we can meet to discuss if you prefer.
If you require a Thai architect to help design your house, we have our own professional architects who can do this for you. Our English speaking Thai architects continue to help lots of customers design their homes throughout Thailand. If you have finished architectural drawings already, then we can provide a building quotation from them. You do need to apply for permissions to build the house, at the local government office. It is a fairly simple process and normally takes a few weeks.
On acceptance of the construction quotation, we provide a building contract for you and us to sign. It includes all the details of what we are agreeing to, the deliverables, our service and the guarantee. The payments to build the home are paid in stages throughout the build. As soon as you have permissions from the local authority, we have received the first deposit payment and within contract terms, we start building your home.
Some of our customers live or work overseas. This is not a problem and we have helped numerous people design and build their homes, while they are out of the country.
The time taken to build a house varies depending on its size and complexity. This is discussed with you and written into our contracts. It standard house, normally takes anywhere from 8- 12 months; larger luxury homes can take 12-18 months. The average is 12 months. We always advise anyone who wants to build a house in Thailand, to give themselves adequate time for all the various stages. This is especially important during the architectural stages.
