    A Simple pad and roof

    Recently moved to a smallish house in Udon. Kitchen is just no big enough for all my crap lolol

    I need to build a shelter on the back of the house for use as a supplemental and Thai kitchen.

    The area is 3m wide and 10m long that I am envisioning. Cement pad, metal roof on metal supports etc. Roof will slant down from existing structure for about 3.5m. No walls or fixtures just the basic roof and floor.

    Real simple and basic structure, no frills.

    I have never had much construction done here so am at a loss as to the pricing etc.

    Any "rough" estimates would be greatly appreciated.

    Have at least one quote of 40K but that's way out of what I think normal costs would be if compared to normal house build per square meter.

    If my math correct, less than 1,500 baht per square meter.

    40k sounds a reasonable price.

    how much of a offset from your rent ??? I assume your renting ?
    If that is a all in price, somebody is making a tidy profit.
    4 precast posts, less than 4KB, concrete in bags, rock-crushed etc, and sand 2KB.
    Thai type build, very little rebar, so 1 KB
    No idea on roof costs but there is 33 KB left over from quoted price

    40K is not that bad of a price. Please remember that they also might be considering electricity and plumbing among other things.

    If none of the above is involved, then 20-25K should be in the ball park.

    Please keep in mind that the above quote will probably not include rendering, counters, windows or storage areas.

    I guess it depends on what you really want as a finished project.

    Am I missing something here ?
    I thought the guy just wanted a concrete slab with a roof and nothing else ?
    I would have thought more in the region of 10-15,000 Baht especially in the sticks !
    Treat everyone as a complete and utter idiot and you can only ever be pleasantly surprised !

    Good to see you back on board and I hope you are well.
    Yeah, its been awhile. Figured there wouldn't be much slagging off if I limited things to a single construction post...

    Was hoping you or one of the other experienced guys would hop in here. Since I had no idea, all the responses have been helpful.

    Hope all is well on "the dark side" lol

    Some additional info:

    Access to the area is very limited, 30 meters from nearest truck access.
    Access is 1.5 M wide, no damage to existing walls/fauna etc. can be tolerated
    Not in the sticks but in a quiet moo ban just outside the ring road in Udon
    Water already installed
    Electric is handy, but not really required other than lighting

    All in all from what I read here its a reasonable quote. Now to get with landlord and finalize financial arrangements and conclude quote process. I won't deal with negotiating with contractor or payments directly to contractor.

    Final payment from me won't be until work completed.

    I had exactly that done to my last place in Udon. I think you're looking at less than 40k, but certainly no more.

    Do you want a phone number of the builder who did mine? Be prepared to be firm on pricing - they all try to take the piss on the first quote.

    I have a number of a bloody good electrician as well. Don't piss him off though, as he's been brilliant to me over the last few years.

    Where in Udon are you? PM me.

    I had a similar size roof put up outside our house for an outside kitchen.
    Used steel for uprights and beams. Roof was done with "asbestos" type sheets.
    Total cost 10k baht.
