About Building in Thailand

Since 2008 I have spent most of my days living in Thailand.
I prefer the Chiang Mai area for the climate, the people and the fact that I have everything close including airport and hospital.
Life is good for me here now. Seeing I enjoy writing and teaching I have compiled these pages of information about living in Thailand and building in Thailand.
I also enjoy teaching landscape painting in oils and acrylics.

Please do contact Len if you have any comments.

Life is peaceful and easy in Chiang Mai, the basic cost of living is low compared to Australia and everything you might need is available – except licorice – when trying to buy licorice in Thailand I was told I would need to go to the ‘hospital’. These little difficulties are not really a problem, I brought about 4 kilo of licorice with me on my last trip from Australia.
My filming studio (hobby) is upstairs where I enjoy a cool breeze from across the rice fields and can watch the farmers tending there rice and driving the amazing harvesters.

Often we trip into the Old City of Chiang Mai or out to the Royal Gardens at Hang Dong,

the attraction is usually flowers, and more flowers and more flowers, plus a few hanging melons and wonderful structures.

If everyone knew what I know now, there would be very few lonely old age pensioners living in Australia today. My story ‘How to Catch a Plane’ is an insight to what I think on this subject.
