  2. Hello Sir! May I know the 2020 cost per square meter of common house areas (e.g. bathroom, bedroom, living room, etc.) considering basic, mid range, and high end finish? Thank you!

  3. Hello sir. I just want to inquire about the structural cost of a 2-story modern minimalist house with about 400 sqm floor area? our contractor is saying that the cost is around at least 25 000/sqm. Can this be true?

    • Hi Michaela, considering the probable aesthetic of modern minimalist houses (farther columns to justify the “minimalist” feels, probably no columns obstructing the line of sight) yes, 25,000php/sqm is a fair price. That’s all-in. Try niyo po tawarin into 22,000. 🙂
