How much to build a house?

Post by Bangyuk » August 28, 2023, 8:20 am

I know, stupid question! My wife’s old house in the village is falling down. She wants to rebuild from scratch even though the family all have decent homes. As a rough estimate, how much should she expect to pay for say 2-3 bedrooms on a medium sized plot. Not farang luxury, just something solid and liveable!

Thanks

Ian

A suggestion is to go to Facebook and head to https://www.facebook.com/groups/231545458555369
"Building in Issan"

my 40 year old niece built a 3 bedroom, one bath house in 2020 to modern standards for about 600,000 baht. one bedroom is larger, about 3.5 meter by 3 and the other 2 are small for single beds or the typical Thai mat on the fllor. Its built of Q-Block, stuccoed, with a blue scope metal room, and UPVC windows with sliding screens.. bathroom is modern commode sink and shower with water heater on the wall. She had it built by a contractor from a nearby village who did a pretty good job. Mind you, prices have gone up on construction materials over the last 3 years..

400,000 and up. At 400 you will get absolutely basic, like this but with more walls/rooms, the house in the video was 300,000 and took 5 weeks.


The and up will probably go up to 1,000,000 but is totally dependent on what you consider finished and liveable

In my posts all fees and requirements are the standard R&R but TIT and a brown envelope can make incredible changes YMMV.

both youtube links work fine for me.....not sure what 747 problem is (in regards to footy and youtube links ;) )

Talking of youtube there is a young English youtuber called Isan Drew who has been building a house for approx. 800k baht. Link to one of his videos

His football problems have been long recognised, but to be fair, that earlier YT link wasn't working for me either.

The first video link was not working when 747 commented so I edited the link and posted another video after.
However deankham doesn’t seem to know how to post the video rather than the link to the video

This is one of his links correctly posted as a video

^ can you educate me on how to correctly post the youtube video?

I had several attempts using the 'YouTube' button but would not work so reverted to the bad old practice of inserting the link.

Thanks

Use the youtube button
[youtube][/youtube]
Then edit the URL to get the link, which on the first link starts after the …be/ and ends at the ?
This is the actual address of the video that you insert between the ][ of the youtube.

If you inspect the .com link you posted you will see exactly where the video address lives.

many thanks, giving it a test;

This is another youtuber who was involved in his house build. Not sure if he mentions the exact cost as a while since I watched them.
