Cost of Building a house in Chiangmai

Postby john squire » Tue Jul 25, 2006 4:30 pm

What is the cost of a labour only house (not including windows,ceilings,water system,garden,and electrics) .What I mean is labour only doing foundations,bricks,roof,painting,fitting bathroom,kitchen,fitting doors,and tilling floors.
Our house is 100 sq meter,and we paid our contractors 300,000 bht
extra to this was 75,000 for electrician (we paid extra for fancy lights)
25,000 for windows
10,000 for parkae floor
30,000 to drill for water and tank,and pumps
20,000 for garden

Total 460,000 plus about the same amount for materials =920,000were we riped off?

Politicians answer really.
If you like the house NO, you were not ripped off. Other answer is obvious.

I don`t know the area of Chiang Mai, but I paid 290.000 Baht labor costs for a house (stone and pillar build) with more than 200 m2 plus patio/porch of nearly 50 m2.(Incl. Water system in the house, ceiling, floor)

Have a look here: :D

It only 1 floor, but the walls are 4 m hight and the ceiling is 3.7 m hight.

For the windows (aluminium frame), one door in the house (also with aluminium frame and the glass in the doors 75.000 Baht.

The electric work was 25.000 Baht plus nearly the same for the material and the cables are all on tubes and in the wall.

For all light in the house, I paid about 50.000 Baht.

I hope I could help a little.

Hi John.

Thanks for your pm. I have to ask my wife for the telephone number.
But the builder is in Sukhothai.

We bought most of the material on our own with some help of the builder.

Cement and stones and iron has the builder bought.

The house was built between November 2005 and Mai 2006.
It took only so long, because the producer of the roof tiles delivered so late.

The house was all in all round about 1.8 mio. Baht.

I took no ceiling fans, because it`s to hard to reach them if you want to clean them or if one is broken. So we took wall mounted fans with remote from Panasonic (very good). Also it doesn`t look so nice, but thats my point of view. :roll:

I also had no contract with the builder of the house.
We wrote down the money he wanted for building the house, what he signed and than he always signed, when he good a payment from us.

John, just got back from LoS and reviewing the posts. Going back to your original post; less than 1M baht, can't see how you could have been ripped off at that price.
