My drawings took about 2 weeks. Government engineer does the drawings. No problems withregulations or oversights this way. He draws, he stamps and you just build. :D

If I was to try to estimate the amount of rebar I need, I would sit down and draw up a rebar scheduled
Take the columns and decide the height from footing to roof .
let's say 4.5 m (3m column + 1 m footing + .5 m bend in footing and waste)
times 4 because you will need 4 for each column
times the number of columns = the linear footage of rebar you will need for your columns
to this add the collars you will need to tie the four rebars together
how far you want to place them? if 2 per meter , then and you have 10 columns, then
10x4.5=45 lm so you need 90 collars

repeat the process for beams
linear meters of beams x4 plus some waste, plus collars for ever linear meter.

Then look in your plan to see where else you will need rebar
door jams, tie beams over over windows . wall reinforcing beams, stairs

dont forget the floor slab, what does your design calls for? rebar. wire roll or combination of both?

Did I forget of anything?
That's the process I use, if someone knows of an easier way, I am all ears,

Thanks for the advice

Having never worked out rebar before I was a bit wary but when I saw how it was made up it was a dawdle to work out.

I just used an excel spreadsheet popped in the sizes and it did the rest.

We are using 4 collars a meter so 75kg should be enough

My floor slab is wire roll so that was easy to work out.

I am still deciding on window sizes so I will order what I need for lintels and the door jams in a couple of days.

I realise these things never work out exact but the people I am dealing with will take back anything I don't use or deliver any shortage in a matter of hours.

Thanks again

Just a price update for anybody interested. Currently using DB12 SD40 rebar at 175 baht per 10 metre length, although they told me next time its going up a little. SD30 at another shop last week was 135, today 160.
Bought in Phetchabun.

The price will depend on where it was made. I chose the Indian company over the chinese made rebar, which was a little more expensive but came with plates attached that identified the strength and batch number.

I think (I hope) that for my one-storey house, DB16 grade SD40 rebars bought at Global House (which I don't know the country of manufacture, but I strongly suspect China) should do the trick!
