But Peter, those are not standard everyday Thai homes, in fact you very seldom see anything like them in travels around the country, You will see a lot more one room or no room field houses than you will see anything like those.
I understand that, that is why I said middle and upper levels of the real estate market. Maybe I should have added that segment of the market represents only 15/20% perhaps of the total market.

The thing the site does, is to show, for that segment of the market, the 2 primary types of construction, wood and concrete/block along with the square footage/meterage which is what Brainychick3 originally asked for.

Check out http://www.chiangmairealty.com/ This website will give you an idea of the middle and upper end of the market in Chiang Mai. There is a couple of good examples of traditional Thai houses when you go to the page for houses between 5 and 7m baht.

Well I have noticed unlike western houses, Thai houses do not have enclosed garages with doors even on expensive houses, Car accommodation is just the roof line extending from the house with 2 pillars at the end, creating car accommodation. Also Thai houses seem to have tall about 5 feet high fences and gates at the front of the house, the fences are usually made of Iron and some times concrete bricks, Gates are usually Iron. modern houses are commonly cement rendered. to give a more appealing Finnish, to the concrete bricks.

Are you talking about modern houses or traditional houses? If the latter, they are made of wood and often on stilts. We have some pictures for you here:

I have found that living in hot, humid climates that it is better for the car to be just in the shade rather than to be in an unventilated room as the atmosphere in a closed room is very prone to sweat more and cause more rust because of accumulated moisture, it is nice if you have the building insulated and air conditioned then it is OK to be enclosed.

Insulation is starting to come into sight more now than was even a couple of years ago.

The ones I've been in are cinder block or brick homes. Around 1200-3000 square feet usually. Extensive wood used around windows, stairs, and on furniture. Granite countertops are cheap and pretty common. Granite rectangular tiles about 1x2 in width x length ratio. Some houses have the old squatters, some modern toilets. I've noticed that glass block is used in some of my friend's homes in the bathrooms. The newer homes I've been in have real nice stainless ceiling light fixtures.
