Gov't house design #7

Postby expatriate » Sun Jun 23, 2013 5:03 pm

Hi,

Any thoughts, estimates, wild guesses or whatever on a reasonable price for both complete construction and labour only on the Gov't plan #7 (building in Sattahip)?

Well how big is it, as I don't have plan #7.
What type of roof ? steel or composite ?
Q-con, red brick, or the grey blocks ?

Sorry - forgot to post the size. 70 SQ M, steel roof, standard red bricks.

My guesstimate is 560,000 Baht which includes a small profit margin for the builder and as long as you don't need deep footings.

Thanks, Fred. That's about what the gov't site had it at near as I can make out - it's all in Thai of course, but I think that's an estimate from a number of years ago. Should be getting my first quote today - maybe I'll post it.

Thanks again.

No quote yet...

I know the probable answer, but no harm in asking. Anyone know of a contractor in our around Sattahip that would be worth talking to about building this?

Thanks.

I was looking at another semi-constructed house tonight - it used a brick I am not familiar with. Large, grey, - not the heavy brick that would be used for concrete fencing. I didn't get a chance to pick one up but they looked quite light. If you know what I am talking about, how would they compare to the small red bricks in price and quality?

Thanks.

Search Q-Con or AAC or ACC on this site and you'll learn everything there is to know. Most of us used them. My 60 by 20 by 20 centimetre blocks were 45 Baht each in 2010.

One other question, pls. This house has the large, thin roof tiles that you find on row rental units, etc. Of course they don't look very nice and reduce the value of the house, but I like to do some research on them anyway. Do they have a name? Searching on large, cheap roof tiles, is not working out too well! Of course, I'm also interested in comparing prices to the "standard" CPAC type also.

I've got a contractor now for a modified design of that house #7 and hope to start early next month. I'll post another thread with progress and photos.

Hi Expat, now that you have a contractor did you get a quote for the build cost. And if so, can you tell me what are the material specs. I got a rough estimate for a similar size house that seems very high so I'm interested in your cost. Thanks.
