My visit to Little Home Beach resort in Prachuap Khiri Khan, got my interest in the traditional teak bungalows.
The owner of the resort tells me, she got them made in Chiang Mai, but as I drive north, just near Hua Hin, I notice two companies competing to make these traditional Teak Homes. One on each side of the highway. I just have to stop and look.
These are not expensive, a typical small house was 900,000 baht, but onto that you have to add the land and the plumbing and electric connection. For that money, they will make the style of hut on your land, they don't make the house and ship it, they ship the wood and the experts and make it on site.
I dream a little of having one of these on my land, playing with my little girl out in the country. I also dream of mosquito free air, high speed internet and cool breezes. Dreams and reality don't always go together!
For the moment, my dreams have to be limited to a sala in the garden!
