House Construction Cost in Pakistan

House Construction Cost in Pakistan

People prefer to live in self-built houses in Pakistan. Self-built housing is also considered as the best housing in Pakistan, as this helps people to build homes according to their requirements and affordability. People just buy plots in their preferred housing schemes in Pakistan and build own houses. Building own home is great, but one must know the construction cost. For cost estimation, you first need to know the total covered area to be constructed. Once you have calculated the covered area, house construction cost can be divided into two parts, grey structure cost and finishing cost.

Cost of Grey structure work

Construction of house structure is considered as grey work. So from foundation excavation to plastering of roofs & walls and preparation of flooring is the grey structure work. Cost of grey structure is in the range from 1350-1800 Pak Rupees per square foot as some structures cost less and some cost more.

Cost of Finishing work

Finishing work includes the marble & tile fixing, wood work, false ceiling work and painting. Cost of finishing work is in the range from 1150-2200 Pak Rupees per square foot. This depends on the quality of finishes you choose for your home. For example engineered doors cost less, whereas solid wood doors cost more.

Per square foot construction cost to build a house in Pakistan

Total construction cost to build a house is in the range from 2500-4000 PAK Rupees per square foot. This variation depends on the type of structure you want to build and finishes you choose for your home.

Factors that decrease or increase the house construction cost

1-Small covered areas cost more to build, whereas large covered areas cost less to build.

2-Material transportation also decreases or increases the construction cost of a house. Areas, where construction materials are not locally available cost more.

3-Site preparation and soil filling also increases the cost of construction, as some sites or plots need more preparation and soil filling.

4-Single storey houses cost more to build, whereas double storey houses cost less to build.

5-Simple structures cost less to build, whereas structures with lot of beams & lintels cost more to build.

NOTES:
  • Construction cost in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Gwadar, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, Multan, Peshawar, Gujranwala, Sialkot, Abbottabad, Bahawalpur, Quetta, Sargodha, Hyderabad Sindh, Sahiwal, Jhelum, Gujrat Pakistan, Sheikhupura, Kasur and other cities of Pakistan varies due to variation in construction material rates.

        Then its cost will be 35-40 LAC
        The fact is that grey structure cost remains the same
        Which will be approximately 25 LAC
        Rest is the finishing
        You can complete finishing in 10-15 LAC depending on your budget and choice of finishing material

      According to your requirements, it will cost you approximately 25-30 LAC FOR COMPLETE FINISH HOUSE.
      Marble, tiles and ceiling cost varies and it depends on your choice and designs.

      It will cost you approximately 40 LAC to construct normal quality two storey 1700 sq ft house
      Ideally you should construct home on labor rate. You should provide the material and contractor will bring in his team to build your home.

      Construction cost of 240 sq yards 3 storey house will cost 80 LAC approximately
      Its better to hire contractor on labor rate, you should provide material and contractor should bring in his team to build your home. Contract on labor rate
      House construction will take 6-8 months ideally but due to gap it will take 10-12 months

    I need some advice. I have around 20 Lac available with me which is my complete life savings. I currently live in a rented place. Now with this money, I want to buy my own house. I got 2 options (I am from Karachi). First is to buy some small flat in city which is not enough for my family and the other option is to buy a 125 sq yard plot in Bahria Town Karachi which I will construct later. Which one would you advice. Also approx. how much will it cost if I construct a 125 sq yds plot there.

    Reply
    • Mahrab
      Its better to buy 125 sq yards plot as your saving will increase with the time and in future you can sell the plot to buy decent flat or can also construct your home.
      It will take at-least 20 LAC to construct single stotey house. Which you can construct in stages. Don’t waste time and just buy plot. Otherwise due to flat inflation you will loose buying power with your money.

      Single storey construction cost of 500 sq yards house = 75-80 LAC
      Double storey construction cost of 500 sq yards house = 125 LAC
      Construction cost of warehouse depends on the structure, material and area you need to cover

      Single storey house of 120 yards in Gwadar will cost you approximately 25 LAC

      Yes you can build 3 houses on 2 Kanal plots
      Best way to hire good architect in your area and first get drawing according to your plans
      Also consult with Sui Gad Society so that they have no objections
      or
      Architect should design houses in a way that it does not violates bylaws of Sui Gas Society Phase 2

    Good Day,

    I am planning to construct a house for my parents in a village.

    Idea is to construct a simple decent home.

    location: it is 10 KM Inside on GT Road GujarKhan, Rawalpindi.
    City/Village: Village
    Land type: Agricultural land
    Total Land: 16 Marla
    Construction Type: Simple, Single Story
    Bedrooms: 2 Standard size bedrooms
    Bathroom: 2 full bathrooms, but of basic type (no bathtubs)
    Kitchen: 1 , but of basic type
    Drawing: No
    Lounge/Sitting Area/Common hall: Yes
    Shade in front of rooms: Yes

    I am not sure about the total area of that should be covered ideally, but I would prefer to leave maximum space for Garden.

    this house will be used for staying a month on vacations so just want to keep it simple and straight.

    I am planning to construct in phases like building the grey structure, flooring and finalizing with other pending things.

    Can you help me with the phases I should divide my construction into and with the approx amount for each phase.

      It will cost you 25 Lac including boundary wall
      First you should complete boundry wall
      In second phase you should complete the grey structure
      Finally you should complete the finishes

        covered area is length x width
        for bylaws you have to leave open space on one side front and back
        say you leave 5 feet open on three side
        its 25×45 = 1125 sq ft on one floor

    for example if we assume 15Rs SQFT plaster .. it will be like 3192 x 15 = Rs,47880 for just drawingroom inner plaster .. is it right ? or i am mistaken ?
    if this is right, it may even cross 2.5 – 3 lacs .. and we will need to provide cement and bajri i think ..

      Cost of plastering is 25-30 per sq ft
      It less for walls but more for the roofs
      Best way is to hire 2 masons and 2 laborers for plastering work
      Complete works in steps
      Just hire labor and tell them about work and they will tell you to material they need
      This will help you to do work in steps according to your budget

    Considering a kitchen in one kanal house 50 x 90. What is the cost for a finished luxurious kitchen ( Italian , american or spanish ) with installed kitchen accessories? Consider the normal covered area for one kanal.

      It really depends on the quality and stuff you need
      With accessories it will cost you 15 LAC Approximately
      Aran kitchen and many other companies have packages
      They will tell you about design and stuff you need with lot of varieties
      They will charge you for all kitchens in 1 Kanal home like a complete package

      At the moment we have just office in Lahore.
      1- CONSTRUCTION COST
      It will cost you approximately 55 Lac to build 7 Marla double storey house
      2- RATE LABOR
      Labor rate vary 275-350 per sq ft
      3- CONSTRUCTION RATE
      Construction rate vary 2500-4000. I personally prefer 2500 per sq ft rate as expensive finishes are useless for me due to fast trend changes.

      Reply
      • Thanks for your reply!!

        The 55Lac you quoted us base on 2500 per SQ FT or what rate?

        If build a house in 7 Marla double story what the total cover area because can’t cover full 7 Marla?

        Because we get quotation few other company as well, so we will decide after we get your best offer.

    Hello,

    I want to construct tourist cabins/cottages on a 12000 sq ft. area. My plan is to create around eight 2 bed x attached bath or I can even go with 4 x 2 bed and rest single bed x bath. I’m assuming I should be able to do all that in about 6000 – 7000 sq ft. Can you give me a closer estimate of space?

    Can you give me any idea on how much space a normal 2 bed apartment will take vs the single bed ones.

    I want to keep some space for Lawn + bone fire etc.

    I would really appreciate if you can get back to me.

      250 sq ft for one bed tourist flat
      500 sq ft for two bed tourist flat
      You need reception lobby with sitting area
      Dinning hall
      Kitchen
      Store area
      Outdoor space
      Its better to have some building like hotel or flats so that you can use roof top and can save open area on ground.
      Cabins for tourists will take lot of space

        I’m still considering my options whether to go with tourist huts or a simple hotel building. Having said that there is a slight issue with the roof because there is a lot of snow.

        How much area do you think I should cover with the building (in case of a guest house/hotel), if I want to build around 16-20 rooms (including kitchen/dining hall/staff room etc).

        2- Do you think I should stick to one story for that many rooms or must get double story building (Looks/style etc)

        3- How much do you think it would cost to building 1 story and 2 story (given there would be latten instead of a roof on second floor).

        Any other suggestions would really be appreciated.

      It will cost you 50 Lac to build double storey house.
      It better to find contractor on site. Visit the houses under construction in near by your plot.
      So that you can meet the owner and ask about behavior of contractor.
      You should hire a contractor on labor rates.
      In this case contractor will provide the labor and you will provide the material.
      This way you can build affordable and good quality home.

  93. Hi gahr47 team,

    You people are doing amazing job by guiding people on construction issues.

    I am constructing double story 500 sq yd house (covered area approx 4900 sq ft) in Islamabad Sector B-17. I want your opinion on the following points:

    1. What is the standard size (width x height) for windows of Bed Rooms and Drawing Room that you recommend?

    2. Which windows are better and efficient? Single glazed or Double glazed?

    3. How much the aluminum windows cost for 1 kanal house (windows height at 7 ft).

    4. How much is the cost for marble flooring for 4900 sq ft covered area?

    Kind Regards

      1 Kanal / 500 sq yards house will cost you 1.25-1.5 Crore.
      There is no standard width of windows but wider windows are used now like 4′ sill level 7 feet top level and 7 feet wide
      Both windows are excellent
      If you want cooling and heating to remain in rooms then just use double glazed
      Aluminium windows have lot of variety and rates
      Just get prices from different sellers / suppliers
      never buy expensive or cheaper stuff , but of middle price
      Cost of flooring depend on the material you choose like tiles, marble etc.
      per sq foot cost of marble + fixing cost + finishing cost /polish or grinding

      First of all you should know that up to 3 storey house you don’t need beams and columns
      Secondly you should build your home on labor rates (you will provide the materials and contractor will do the construction working including labor force)
      Thirdly you have not less money you just need to utilize your capital in better way by working in stages
      First of all complete grey structure of single storey house
      Then what money you have left just select finishes accordingly.
      In shaa ALLAH every thing will be fine.

      In east facing house heat will be observed on back side of house
      In west facing house heat will be observed on front of home
      so it really doesn’t matter which direction your plot is
      what matters most is the design of house according to sun orientation

      House construction cost will cost you approximately 80 Lac Rupees

      In Punjab you should use bricks as bricks have strength
      In Sindh, Pindi, Islamabad you should use column and beam structures as bricks have no strength to bear load
      Normally houses should be built with bricks as house structure is not complex and also spans are short.
      But quality of bricks is very important
      Brick quality in Lahore, Faisalabad, Gujranwala is very high.
      Mughal buildings are built of Bricks.
      But you should go for columns and beams if quality of bricks is low
      To check quality of bricks
      break brick from center
      if it is solid it is load bearing
      if has sand or mud in center it is not load bearing

      Don’t worry about the strength of bricks in Pindi / Islamabad area as bricks are rubbish like sand with no strength. Bricks in Lahore and Gujranwala has history of 1000 years. Brick are red and even Badshahi Masjid Lahore structure is built of red bricks.
      Building / house with column structure; you can use low quality bricks as bricks are not bearing the load.

        Dear thank you for your prompt reply. Just few more queries.
        It seems like he is using low grade bricks after i inquired. The bricks are not in good shape as well many has broken edges. This seems like very soft and not strong strength wise. The house is being constructed in Abottabad. So i am worried about the earth quake issues. Column structure is there but still the walls should be strong.
        I can ask him to use the grade 1 bricks from now on, but i am worried about the bricks that he already used. it is around 3 feet high from the base right now. very initial stages.

        Q1. Will these low quality bricks bear the load of the double story 6500 sq feet covered area building for a 1 kanal house?
        Q2. Shall i ask him to remove all the bricks that he used and again redo the brick work?
        Q3. Or any other suggestion from your expertise?

        I apologize in advance for lengthy email but i am stressed and need technical guidance.

        Thank you and best wishes.

      Basements are more functional in larger houses like 1 kanal
      I have seen basements in 5 Marla houses which create much problems.
      Due to limited space, two stairs at one place (for basement and other for first floor) take much needed space.
      so basement in 5 Marla house is never recommended.

    AoA!

    I have seen your blog on link “http://ghar47.com/2015/05/12/house-construction-cost-in-pakistan/”. I have found it to be quite informative and need similar help from your side.

    I have a 1 kanal house. I want to add a room and bathroom on ground floor. The place where this will be built is the small lawn side [not the main lawn] near the boundary wall. So there are boundary walls on two sides and house wall one side. I don’t think new walls will be needed [except fourth wall] as they will squeeze the area but your expert opinion is required. Do we need to have foundations laid for this room?

    Further following is planned for room and bath;

    Simple room with cupboards as the only fixtures.
    Two windows one in room and the other in bathroom are needed.
    Floor tiles should be the most basic ones
    Bathroom to be basic one with or without vanity
    Two doors needed. One for bathroom and one for entrance into the house. Here I would like you to note that part of the wall of existing house will have to be dismantled for preparing area for door entry into the house.

    Please suggest what is cheapest way of having the above constructed. Your sincere advice and efforts in coming up with a plausible solution are much appreciated.

    Reply
    • Lala
      It will cost you 4-5 Lac Rupees with complete finishes
      Make sure that you dug the new foundations to the level of original / main building foundation level.
      You must have proper damp proofing as now a days dampness is destroying buildings
      Go for normal finishes not expensive not cheaper

      You should hire architect for design of your house
      But you should construct your home on labor rates
      Good contractor can be found in the area where you want to construct your homes. Gust look around, especially houses under construction in your neighborhood

    I am considering construction of 700 sq yard house with basement and a single story in Bahria town Rawalpindi.
    How much will the basement cost?
    How much will the single story cost?
    Since the plot is of filling which will cost less – basement+single story OR no basement+double story.
    Kindly advise…..
