    Don't think you could get a 2 story at 5,000baht per meter.

    Footings, columns, beams need to be stouter to support second story weight. Cost higher for extra cement and steel.

    All the building materials need to be lifted up to the second floor, this increases labour and time. There is no set percentage, you stick a 100,000baht jaccuzi in thats costing you 50,000baht per square meter, maybe 3,000baht in labour for installation.

    in fact a two story is the same cost per m2 as one story, only over two story should the price go up for extra labour. your build should cost 500 bt m2, but you'll never see it. if you get it for 7.5k per m2 you are on target. this is a basic house of course. theres a fool on here paid 14k per m2 for a fucking single story flat roofed extention. everyone thought it was great. lol i'd come out of retirement for that price.

    Pouring concrete onto dirt to make a floor is a lot easier than making a floor on the second story, form work, supports, base etc etc etc,.

    Formwork, 80 percent of this wood isn't needed for a single story house, whose going to pay for that, it doesn't just grow on trees you know, or at least you wouldn't think so the prices they charge for wood in Thailand.

    Why your comment are so sarcastic ? is it not here a forum to get some help and where to ask and receive some informations !

    Or is it a forum only for milionaire ? or a forum only for professional ? or the both ...?

    Is it a crime to try to find informations and solutions because I don't have some much money right now ???

    Problem is you are asking for answers to questions without being more specific on the house you have in mind. A "very basic, 2 story house" is subject to many interpretations.

    Post a picture or a link to one showing what you feel is a simple 2 story house so your questions can be answered with some accuracy.

    What do you have to spend on a house? Let us know and then you will get some comments on what you can build for the amount.

    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    well I was not asking if it's possible to do ! i was asking how much % is the work and material on a 4000 bahts m2 !

    I was waiting something like the work is 30 % or 25 or 50 % ...!...

    Because I want to buy material myself for a 152 m2 basic house and get the work done separatly ..so by exemple and again only exemple if a builder say 1800 bahts by m2 for the work how much will be for the material (like again for example ) with ciment blocks (40x20x7) syntethic roof...ect ect very simple

    only the house...i have already the windows doors bathrooms kitchen ac...

    i know is not easy, by other way if it was easy i will not need help from experiment people like you are..

    ps sorry but i don't know how to post pictures here

    25% for labor is what I paid to build a 200 m2 bungalow. Labor team experienced building western style (quality) houses. Materials (roofing, flooring, doors, windows, etc.) were relatively expensive so % labor for your house may be higher.

    well u got my answer. wether u buy materials or not single story or not, 7.5k bt will be a good price. there are so many scams in the building game, if ur not in on it you'll get scamed. fuck all your fancy corner cutting just go for the m2 price, one evident scam being run by dd it seems is extra dosh for extra floor, if u aint happy with the quote get another builder, not dd tho.

    ^So who is going to pay for all the wood then for the form work? It isn't needed for a single story house, ground floor poured on dirt 600baht per square meter, 2nd floor 2,200baht per square meter, basic 2 story house in Pattaya 8,000baht per square meter.

    nope

    I reckon you can build a house for B5000 a sq m, if you do the project management your self and get the best price for materials

    and hire individual labour forces, not a single builder; so the concrete work can be done by one crew, the plumbing by another, the tiling by another, etc etc


    as long as you know what you are doing, order the materials on time and make sure you get good crews
    I have reported your post
