    Building cost per sqm

    I'm putting an extension on the back of my house. I had a guy draw it up and quote on it.

    It will be 2 stories and I was quoted 12500B/sqm. It is a 100sqm build.

    That is A grade fixtures, tiles, sliding doors etc, Q-con bricks full western kitchen, bathroom and built in wardrobes in two rooms.

    Another builder said a rough idea for homes is 10000B/sqm.

    Is it too much or ok considering the use of A grade materials, kitchen etc? I'm just after a rough idea and not getting into a debate about it, obviously there is a lot to do selecting fixtures and checking the quality of the wood work.

    I searched and found nothing, maybe a handy guide for those considering building?

    anything from B6000 a sqm for basic building up to B20000 for farang rip-off merchants

    best to get quotes for the structure and then go on from there, as the fittings can make a monstrous difference

    12k per is average I'm seeing in the last 6 months. All good quality materials. Good being subjective.

    Cheers for the replies. I wil have to check just what sort of things I will get of course. I did go with him and look at homes he already built. Not bad. Been bitten before so probably best I buy all the fittings myself but it's good he can do the whole thing for my purposes.

    prob 10-12k is fine using QCON, that makes it more expensive than standard

    This is the key. If you see his work and like it then it's going to be pretty much what you will get.

    OK cool. I was hoping it would be ok as I want to get rolling on this. He's drawing up a contract and sign next week after I check out exactly what sort of fittings and kitchen I will be getting.
