Thailand Photos: Ban Rai - Uthai Thani - Karen village home stay: 03 - 05 Dec 2005
An old house in Ban Chao Wat was built almost nail-free. The house is a large one compared to others in the same village.
Below is a sketch and views of the house I made during my home stay. The owner couple was not present so I did not
go inside the house. Entire house was made of hand-cut wood and bamboo, and thatch. Only the central walkway was roofed
by corrugated plates - aparently an recent work.
The views A to G are shown below. The first two pictures show the front views of the house.
Front view of the old house: left and right sides.
A: front entrance on the stilt. B: the roof and beams connection.
C: underside of the house. D: looking the kitchen, the right room of the house.
E: looking the bed room and living room. F: bamboo ladder details.
G: stilt (column or pole) and the house structure connection.
