Building in wood will usually work out more expensive than building in brick and concrete.
If you go through the forum and look at the different builds, you will see building costs from as low as 10,000 Baht per square metre and as high as 20,000 Baht.
So, 6.5 rooms at 16 square metres each is 104 square metres times 10,000 Baht is 1,040,000 Baht for the cheapest construction.

Otis thats part of life on a forum the freedom of choice to either believe and do or disregard what you read but you only have to look at what he built to get a rough idea on materials he states how long it took used preformed colums a small roof so no major structural engineering a basic structure and not even attempting to reach western standards a cheap and cheerful place to get some sleep

putting that aside i have had the pleasure to actually meet him he advised me a lot on my build and i have to admit he does know where to shop i was too busy to trek to khon khaen
and as a result spent a good few thousand extra buying in the village this aside he disected the hotel we were in and priced it room by room when the owner joined us for a drink and told us the cost you could not have a weekend in pattaya on the difference he also uses the same team and gets a good deal on labour probably with minimal slacking so cutting costs further i 100% believe his costs and of course what has he to gain by lying???

It wasn't 10K baht / m2, it was more like 3K. There's even a BOQ soewhere that I posted on this site - but don't ask me to translate it for you ;)

What people forget when they go in for building multiple guest rooms are costs of the furniture, bedding, towels, and diverse sundries, TVs (and cable splitters), WiFi , telephones, etc, etc. They can double the actual costs and of course anre not shown in a construction BOQ.

The moral of the story is: have a business plan, do your market research, be sure to operate on at least 75% occupancy, work out your ROI and don't price your rooms out of the market you intend to capture.

Geordy, I drove through Keng Kroh again last night.

Hmm thats a good question. Separate structure for each guest house per your picture. Hard to say without seeing the interior. Not sure if Con wood could be used instead of real wood slats. Or building it with cement blocks.

Perhaps you can find some prefabricated houses of this size. I think the jazzman construction materials could be used for such a project. Would be intersting to see a project with 6-7 separate buildings put together on this site.

Separate free-standing bungalows with rooms the size of the ones I built (4 x 5 inl. big bathroom) would actually not cost very much more. Only really the price of the extra bricks, rendering, and paint for the side walls, more pre-cast concrete posts, and concrete for their footings.

I broke out costs for my build-2stories 280 sm and they ring up to 4k.tb/sm without land and furnishing or 5.4k tb/sm with land and all.
This is by reciepts so it is not estimate & build 95% done. Remaining work is payout on fixed price agreements
so split twin hares it is 5.35k tb/sm for all but perimeter wall - the wall costed to not exceed 50k tb- if u must- wall is not a necessity for my location. Will likely do car park b4 wall.

I find it amazing what you managed to build for that price Otis, though I would have chosen some different colors :D
