Not me I'm no perv lol

Do you really think you want to put a wall of mirrors in a Thai home particularly with a Thai lady ?
:confused:
That will definitely be the last time the look at U !

{Note particularly to 'newbies' : U will understand this purr-fectly if you have lived in Thai or with a Thai lady for 1-year plus }

if i understood whopper correctly his wife is looking for a mirror.
whopper - is she seeking a mirror , the same as one would see in a dress shoppe or hair salon for customer's to look at their appearance ?

if so and she really wants a reflective mirror like in a beauty salon it should be properly affixed to a stable unmovable wall.
do yourselves a favour by not spending additional bhat to create an imaginative architectural design statement in the 'village'.
otherwise IMHO both you and she are facing disappointment.
We have two rooms ,the front shop and soon the back room.Originally we were going to put glass between them so we could look into shop from back room.But then she wanted to put a glass mirror on that back wall.I was thinking of a one way mirror. Of course this project changes every day.

she didn't know what to do because of her education but she thought we could put a mirror up and use it as a back wall.No existing wall.They change the game plan at a moments notice so this hasn't been properly researched.I was thinking of a one way mirror but didn't know how those were made.They laid the blocks like they were going to put this window /mirror up so now have to redo the blocks I guess.Thanks for the advice we probably just make a wall and attach a mirror to it.

She wants it to be a beauty shop with cream,lotions, etc.But in reality it will sell all types of products.Plus later I want to extend it to sell coffee and teas and possible food.I built it to give her a chance with a shop and do some thing on her own.I wanted to do some thing in town but she has obligations here at the home front so we built on property.And now the way it's turning out it's all most like building a house but cheaper.It's being built by locals,family and anyone who happens to be passing by,so I never really know whats going on but I like to be involved some how.

I'd love to come by and look at your shop and bring my girl to talk with your wife.Of course she don't want help and I would have to force her to come.Whats adress and where abouts is it,I'm not great with adresses.

It's a living, if you sell the right genuine products, not the cambodia copy shyte.

Were still here 4 years on, and customers come back.

But have you lived on that alone ( income from selling just this). Sorry to sound so pedantic but I see more of these salons empty than busy. I say this with the best intentions so that Whopper spends his money wisely (unlike me, in the past). When everything is just handed over "on a plate" there is sometimes less commitment as the "goodies" have not been worked for. If the shop succeeds (and I hope it does) 3.more will crop up within months.

You need to be different ( like Sangka"s Specialist Sausages)
