First the kitchen – Original look – a modified semi-enclosed Thai version. Tacked on to the back of the house – Here are some snaps of it – sorry we were also cleaning so it’s pretty messy.
And here are some progress shots – removing the windows and opening the kitchen to the dining room area –
Now that the rip out is complete, they will start to wall up the area above the sink, add a counter-top to separate the kitchen and dining area, change the doors, and build a enclose the new studio room – it will be the area where the removed doors and windows are now in the last photo –
It is truly – Amazing Thailand – all the above work including painting the entire inside of the house, new drapes throughout, new electric oven-gas burners-flu, new additional lighting AND finally enclosing the studio area – will cost only 120,000 Baht – less than $3,000 US. Spread across a 5 yr lease this investment will mean I will still only pay about an average 15,000 Baht/mo or $380 US – If your gonn’a retire and keep your expenses low – consider Thailand, especially Chiang Mai (better cooler weather here – )
Better photos to come as we get closer to move-in day.
