House Plans 

I have always wanted to design and build my own home.  Living in Thailand gave me the opportunity to design several homes.  Actually they are little more than dreams put into Microsoft Visio.  I was able, however, to actually build two of the homes.  Below is a catalog of these designs.

Ahngnam Duplex Ahngnam Duplex was designed and built for Rung's parents and son, Oasa.  The parent's side is just one medium-sized room as is customary with Thai mountain bamboo homes.  Oasa's side has a small sitting/TV room and a small bedroom.  Entry to both rooms is from a wall-length sliding glass door at the front.  Both rooms share a single bathroom.  Also shared is the separate kitchen as is also customary with Thai homes, and the large front porch.

Ahngnam Large Home Ahngnam Large Home was designed and build to be Rung's and my home.  It is a two-level, two-bedroom, two-bath home.  The ground level has a spacious two-car open garage/carport, a half-bath under the front stairs, a large recreation room with adjoining laundry room, and a secure storage room.  The second level is the main living area.  It is accessed by two outside stairways that lead to a open porch that wraps around two sides of the house.  It only four rooms: a good sized living room, a master bedroom, guest bedroom/office, full bathroom with an additional outdoor shower, and a large kitchen.  The open floor plan allows the living room and kitchen to flow together creating a feeling of spaciousness.  All rooms on the second floor except the bathroom have high, cathedral ceilings with hanging fan/light fixtures.
