Costs of building on Ko Samui

costs-of-building-on-ko-samuiOne of the most common questions people ask me about it what are the costs of building on Ko Samui?

Well, there are a lot of things that you have to take into consideration.

From what items you are going to have imported to the overall size of the home you are wanting to build.

For decent sized 3 bedroom home, you can figure around 140K USD on the lower end of the scale, and it will go up from there.

There’s been homes built on Ko Samui that are in 2 to 3 million dollar range, so there is a wide scale for what it’ll cost you.

When it comes to the costs of building on Ko Samui there is a lot to be taken into account.

As an example, where is the materials being purchased from? Are they only being purchased from Bangkok or are they coming for all over Thailand?

It’s alot like when you are shopping for supplements and have to order them instead having there in the store.

There is a supplement that I take called growth factor plus that works like a charm.

You can read about the all natural ingredients in growth factor plus by clicking here  and read an amazing review when you go to http://growthfactorplusinfo.com/growth-factor-plus-review/

Now, to get back to the point, make sure you know when you hiring a construction firm. Usually if a firm is buying from all over Thailand you will see a significant price difference and that should really bring down the costs of building on Ko Samui.

Are you planning to have any materials shipped from overseas?

If this is a must for you, makes sure you know about the possible import duties on those items.

Other things you might want to consider is the cost of decor and furniture. Again, if you are planning on buying in Thailand it may make things a little bit easier.

Stay Cool on Ko Samui

stay-cool-on-ko-samuiAs you plan for your build on the beautiful island of Ko Samui one thing that is a must is solid plan to stay cool during the hot season.

On Ko Samui during the dry season the temperature regularly gets up to 30 degrees Celsius. Here is a quick link to Ko Samui Weather.

Now, a lot of places out side of the US tend not to have central air to keep a house nice and cool.

Usually, what is done is having one larger air conditioning unit in the living room and a couple smaller ones scattered throughout the house or apartment.

To make sure that you stay nice and cool having a good quality air conditioner is a must.

From personal experience, I’d also tell you that ceiling fans are also a must.

But that’s really just a preference of mine.

Anyway, make sure that whatever air conditioning system you have installed also has a seriously solid guarantee.

Speaking of solid guaranteed products, and I know this is off the subject, but one of the best supplements I have ever used has the most insane guarantee.

It’s an all natural growth supplement called growth factor plus and it is so amazing. I was skeptical until I read a ton of incredible reviews of growth factor plus, which you can read about here.

I also found an killer site that had tons of solid information and probably the best part is that there’s no side effects to growth factor plus.

In case you have heard of this awesome supplement but don’t know how it works you can click here to read all about it.

If you decide to go cheap on you air conditioner and it craps out on you in June through August you might have a real problem on your hands.

Anyway, out on Ko Samui it’s not like you can just go down to the Home Depot to pick up a brand-new AC unit.

So, if you had to order one it could take quite a while to get out to the island and waiting for it during the hot season could be just awful

Even if you have plenty of ceiling fans and fans on the floor it just won’t be able to keep you cool.

So, take my advice and make sure that your air conditioner is new and has one hell of a guarantee…just in case you run into any problems.

Anyway, that’s about it for this post, but in case you missed my last post you can click here to check it out.

Monsoon Season – Ko Samui Building Challenges

monsoon-rain-ko-samui-building-challenges

As I have mentioned before, there are some challenges to building a home on Ko Samui. One of the biggest problems that most people tend to run into is the nasty monsoon rainstorms that hit the island in the fall.

I don’t want to make it sound like it’s going to be the end of the world when these storms hit the island, but it’s best you be forwarded and prepared.

So, when you are having a home built on Ko Samui and the monsoon rain begins to hit what happens?

Well, if you have a solid contractor they’re going to make sure the site is covered and ready to weather the storm.

But if your contractor doesn’t make sure that your building site is ready, you better make damn sure that everything is secure. You don’t want debris from your site slamming into a neighbor’s home and damaging it.

You can most likely avoid this situation by planning out your build so that you have it done or at least mostly done before the monsoon season arrives on Ko Samui.

Another problem some people have run into is a stoppage of work during the really bad monsoon storms.

Again, I don’t want you to think that all the monsoon rain is going to destroy everything, but some years are worse than others.

It’s a lot like when you try 4 or 5 different products. It may sound weird, but stay with me.

Like some are products, like monsoon seasons are worse than others.

For example I tried a bunch of different growth supplements to help me get bigger before I found an awesome on called growth factor plus.

Growth factor plus is an amazing growth supplement that is made from all natural ingredients. You can read about how it works by clicking here and read some awesome reviews by clicking this link.

Anyway, like I said some are better than others…ok, lets get back to it.

In case you don’t know, most monsoon rain showers pour down for a fairly short time and then move on, but there are times that it literally rains heavy for days on end.

Not only does it rain cats and dogs, but sometimes you get really strong winds along with the rain.

This is why it is so very important to plan out your build time with the contractor to avoid as much of the monsoon season as possible.

Lastly, during the monsoon season, that runs from September through November, you are also going to have be on the lookout for low lying areas that will end up flooding.

It’s advisable to find out about flood areas before you get the process of having a home built, but most contractors will be able to help out with this.

Just make sure that you use a trusted and licensed for the construction. This way you shouldn’t have any problems if the worst should happen.

Anyway, no matter where you build there’s always going to be challenges you’ll run into, but on the plus side one your home is built on Ko Samui you be living in an amazing paradise surrounded by a caring and generous culture.

Thanks for reading and hopefully I’ll have something more to post about soon!

Weird things left at job sites

weird-things-left-at-jobb-sites

Over the years I have overseen literally hundreds of construction protests on Ko Samui for clients.  From simple renovations to complete building jobs that started from the ground up. During that time I have found some really weird things left at job sites.

I am not talking about bottles and “normal” trash, but things that make you scratch your head and wonder “why the f*#k is that here. So, with out further interruption here is a short of weird thing left at job sites.

On the top of the list was a small box that contained a pistol, a bottle of whisky, a photograph of a car and note that read “You’ll never get the car bitch!”

I once went to check some work on a frame of a house not long after the foundation was done and in the floor was burn marks from a small fire, half a dozen dying roses, a dead rat, and a broken bottle of wine.

Next on the list of weird things left at job sites was one that I am still scratching my head over. A large cardboard box that had a bunch of opened and empty bottles for a growth supplement called growth factor plus. I am really wondering if someone took all those supplements to see if they worked and then wrote a hell of a growth factor plus review. I did a little research and found a site about growth supplements that had a post entitled does growth factor plus work. It is all natural, so who ever took all those pills is probably fine, but has to be really tall now. Click here to read about these growth supplements

There are tons and tons of other weird things left at job sites that I have found, but those three are the ones that really stick out in my mind.
