Just when you though it was safe to start reading again….. I start blogging about the toilet once more!
I promise that this will be the last post about our new throne for quite some time! I was just going through some photos from the last Thailand trip when I realised that I had not shown you all the finished product after a few coats of paint.
Part one and two was all about the construction phase while part three was the finished product before the painting began. I decided to take on the painting project myself to get in a little practise before painting my new house in Australia. This of course meant that I dragged it out over a few weeks.
For those too lazy to read back I will quickly recap the series of
bogs blogs about this exciting toilet. After finishing the house upstairs which of course included quite a nice toilet we soon discovered that visitors or workers were too shy to use it when nature called. Instead they would quickly disappear for home without saying anything before suddenly reappearing again. When we built the 2nd kitchen downstairs we knew that we would be spending more time downstairs ourselves so put ‘build a new toilet’ on the shopping list.
Door, glass bricks, sink, tap, bum gun, toilet, toilet stand, water jar, light, towel rail, plumbing connections, pipes and tiles was 5584 baht. ($185). 130 bricks @ 4.8 baht each = 624 baht ($21). 6 x 50 kg bags of cement @ 115 baht each = 690 baht ($23). Wages for 4 days for 2 people was 3,000 baht ($100). Total price = 9,898 baht or $329.
I am sorry about the quality of the photos taken inside but I remembered only on our last night that I had not taken any pics so I had to take them in the dark as we were leaving before sunrise the next morning.
So without any further ado(do) I present to you all our new Thai Squat Toilet!
