Our 12th Year Retired in Thailand and Loving It

Today is our 12th anniversary, in Thailand , we got here the 6th and started remodeling the house on the 7th , and moved in on the King's birthday December the 5th , it's been 12 great years and we love our little home, and small piece of paradise here in Thailand , if you want a vacation of a lifetime come on over we have room for you , and we'll pick you up at the airport , or better yet take the train ride (3 1/2 hours) to Wang Pho train station , 3 blocks from our house, and we'll be standing there when you get off the train.
 This was how we saw our house for the first time
 This is the second remodel , we decided we wanted a cottage, and a new color paint job  which we did ourselves inside and out
