Hi everyone,

I have read through the topic and found it really helpful. I'm wondering though if anyone had experience in building a similar construction or could verify my logic based on what I learned on the forum.

I would like to keep the cost as low as possible with maintaining a reasonable quality. I intend to use local materials to cut transport costs and use local labour while overlooking the project myself. 

Description:  Two storey, wooden cabana on bare ground (no slab), with clay covering outside and inside walls and hay roof.

Materials: Concrete (slab), Wood, Clay, Hay

Completion Level: Excluding furniture, bathroom fittings, electricity and water supply installations.

Size: 1400 sq feet (130sq m)

Question 1: How many people will I need to hire so the work goes smoothly but no need to complete in rush? How many of these need to be professionals i.e. roofer?

Question 2: What's the time required to complete this project excluding electricity and water supply installations? Assuming 3-4 workers involved (perhaps more needed?)?

Question 3: Common figures mentioned were between Rs 2000-4000 per sq feet and one contractor quoted Rs 650 per sq feet. Bearing in mind furniture, bathroom fittings, and electricity and water installation is excluded. Does Rs 540.000 (400 per sq feet) seem realistic to achieve the level of completion mentioned above?

Hi  Dear
Am planning  to construct  a apartment in Colombo around 2+7 my land is 19 p. With raft foundation what will be aproximate cost per Sq ft with a roof top swimming pool luxury type and how long for construction?

Hi,

For structure  it will be cost per sq feet 3000 LKR.

finishes cost depend on your selection, example porcelain tile will cost around 150-300 LKR/Sq ft but for marble it will cost more than 1000 LKR/Sq ft.

You can construct the structure with rate basic and for finishes keep it as provisional sum as per available financial capability.

regarding duration: minimum for one floor it will take 20-25 days.


Thanks
