Want to build a house, but have no idea where to begin, or what to do first? Well, you have come to the right blog. We will guide you by giving step by step instructions in a methodical manner to help you build your dream house.
Main Construction Materials Needed
A house can be fundamentally broken down into a few main elements and their amalgamation leads to a cohesive whole. Cement is the primary ingredient for a house project and the rates of cement are uniform regardless of brands with slight variations. You need to have knowledge and expertise to be able to distinguish high quality cement from low quality cement as there are many dealers in the market who will try to trick you into buying low quality cement at cheaper rates which compromises the quality of the house.
In addition to this, Kassu, mix of clay and sand is a very important construction material as it is used for plot filling, costing about Rs.50,000. No construction is complete without plumbing and electric wiring installation. It needs to have a proper water supply, sewerage, and gas supply. Approximately, Rs. 80,000 is required for complete plumbing system. For electric wire installation, one would need about Rs. 65,000 and it needs to be undertaken by a professional for proper installation.
These materials include:
- Steel rebar
Rates of Construction Materials:
- Bricks Rs. 10,000 per 1000 bricks
- Cement Rs. 550 per bag
- Steel rebar Rs. 150,000 per tonne
- Sand Rs. 3000 per trolley
- Gravel Rs. 5000 per trolley
Keeping all these construction materials and their costs in mind, one might also have to incur the cost of purchasing a plot or land for the site of construction. Other than that, building a 5 Marla house in Pakistan is a very achievable ambition.
