  1. Hi, how much do you think is the estimated cost of materials to add a second story with two bedroom partitions?
    Lot area is 22sqm. It is a socialized housing so we were told light materials are preferred. i.e. c-purlins and hardiflex

    • More or less 350k po (very rough estimate). Please consult a professional. Especially if hindi known yung foundation, mostly likely madadagdagan pa yan.

    • Hi Sir Vic, Labor cost is around 40-70% of the materials cost depending on your agreements with the contractor. Thanks!

  2. Loved it please keep stuff like this coming, my wife has a little plot of land handed down to her and she wants to put a small home there in sanfernando la union! So this is much appreciated thank you!
