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.

Single Story House (w/ two-story foundation provision) Materials Breakdown with Prices

Since the fund is limited, she decided to put up one-story for the meantime. Soon enough, if fund becomes available, she will be renovating this to have its second floor.

If you inspect it, the footing depth is set deep enough to cater the loads of a two-story house. Tie beams were included as this house will be located on a sandy-soil. It helps in keeping the structure on its level and shape in case one footing gets displaced.

Again, since the fund is limited, there will be no partition for the meantime. Their original house is just beside this new construction so they do not have to worry about where they will be sleeping. Wooden truss is used instead of steel since a future floor extension is considered. Looking for affordable powertools or chainsaw? Click here.

The prices differs per location. Some construction materials prices may be expensive in one area and cheap on the other. The construction materials breakdown where divided such that non-technical people will be able to estimate the amount corresponding to the work. In example, if you do not have money yet for the plastering works, then just deduct the plastering work amount. This is a single story house with a two-story foundation sample calculation of materials cost that Filipino may incur if they decided to build one.

The breakdown for the materials and the prices is as follows.

The front aesthetic in the perspective photo is beautified (stone material is used in the software rendering). A combination of preferred painting colors may be used to achieve the perspective design.  Septic tank is not included since they will just be tapping to their existing sewer tank. Same thing goes with the electrical and water connections. Also, the sample amount above is just the materials price, labor and equipment cost is not included.
