Bungalow Quatro – Construction Cost Breakdown

These numbers are the most ideal cost estimate. You may spend more for up to x2 or even x4. Prices vary per location. So with the labor cost. Also, the material prices considered are “for pick-up price” only. Thus, the delivery cost of the materials are NOT included.

We hope to see Filipinos build structurally rigid homes. We want Filipinos who tend to do backyard construction have a set of plans for their laborers to follow, rather than just hiring workers and let their worker to their own thing. Since it is inevitable for Filipinos to do backyard construction, we hope this initiative will somehow help them. [Mahirap naman po kasi if we give it away for free, since we are paying for this website, so, please bear with us.]

Torn between building or just buying your own house? This will help you.

Take note that WE DO NOT PROMOTE SELF-HOUSE CONSTRUCTION as this may be unsafe and dangerous in the long run if done incorrectly. But sad as it is, there will always be people especially in the rural areas who opt to “do-it-yourself” as budget is tight. This is the initiative of Philcon Prices since most people especially for rural areas are doing backyard house construction. Meaning, they just hire laborers and spend money without consulting any technical persons, to something that may not last. We will always promote hiring a professional. In fact, we would suggest that you save enough just to hire one. You can never go wrong getting a professional.

Doing the construction DIY? Read this why it is bound to fail.
