New House

Well we just rented – or signed the papers – they will have to clean and repair any fixtures or appliances in the house before we actually move in – scheduled for Oct 10th.  We have some plans on remodeling – adding a photo studio/family room addition  and a western kitchen upgrade.  Of course these improvements will wait till the surgery thing is out of the way.    Here’s the front shot:

That’s Nu at the gate and our Mira  – it’s a 4BR, 3B, large living room and kitchen/dining area – maids quarters in rear and on a private cul-d-sac with little or no traffic just North of Chiang Mai city in San Sai District. One hell of an address, on San Sai Rd, San Sai Noi Sub-District, San Sai District, Chiang Mai —– lot of San Sai – but easy to remember. 

First thing will be to clean the exterior and paint the place – we are thinking of a sandstone color – somewhat Mexican flavor should do the place justice. First a spruce up and upgrade the kitchen.

We have a 5 year lease and school (Payap College) for Nu is just around the corner – of course we will have to get a motorcycle so he can get to school.  Always something, but most of the pressure is off now – just the move and that should be quick – and rent drops from 19,000 to 13,000 Baht/mo or now $380 US/month —– good savings and secure future so I don’t have to worry about that for at least the next five years – no to get over the back thing and concentrate on retirement.

The story goes on !!!!!!!


One thought on “New House”

  1. Dear Frank,
    How are you doing? Hope all is great with you and Nu. I saw the picture of your new house, it’s very nice and big.
    Anyway, are you do some painting or finish? If you need some help to paint your new house I am possibly do it!!
    Well, hope your new house brings you, happiness, more friendly environment and comfortably life.
    Take care!!
    Remains Peace,

    Thanks Chhunny – that’s a wonderful offer but I have a professional crew coming in to paint and do reconstruction of kitchen and studio. Just a lot of little stuff to do moving into a new house – old house but new to me – 5555. See you Sunday for MonkChat.
