    How much per room?

    How much does it cost per room for one of those one room concrete things you see in Thailand.

    The missus has been talking about building a couple of rooms on her bit of land in Chacheongsao and renting them out. I would think that four rooms two down two up would be the best bet.

    Problem is that once she has built them it would be a shame to have to knock them down later if she wanted a house there.

    What is a rough estimate on a room then? Nowt fancy, four walls and a bog/shower room.

    That's what she thinks but I was sure that my builder mate had said it cost 100k per room which is a damn site more.

    4 rooms at 200k or so would be ok. Could be rented out for four years at 3k a room and then knocked down with out too much worry.

    12k * 48 = 576,000B

    100k a room it would need to be at least 8 years before it was ok to knock it down.

    Would you really get 3k for them there?
