      House up to 3 storey is ok without pillar. Small houses don’t need pillars due to small spans but large houses do need. So Its good to get structure from some structure engineer

    what should be the ratio of sand, cement and gravel in concrete for lenter? what should be the ratio of sand and cement for making brick walls? which cement is of best quality?which iron rod is of best quality?what size( thickness) of iron rods are used in constructing a house? is it good to use marble crush instead of gravel?

    • Aimy
      MORTAR RATIO FOR BRICKS (Cement + Sand)
      1:6 for 9″ thick walls and 1:4 for 4.5″ thick walls
      MORTAR RATIO FOR ROOFS (Cement + sand + aggregate)
      1:4:8; 1 part cement, 4 parts sand and 8 parts aggregate
      Normally we use 0.5 inch thick iron/steal for home construction. But sometimes we use large or small thickness as er requirement.
      Mughal Steel and Nawab Steel
      But you can find other good steels too. The most important thing is that they weigh it properly as many people have wrong reading of weighing machines.
      D.G. Khan Cement
      Lucky Cement
      Maple Leaf Cement
      Bestway Cement
      Marble crush is not in unified size. If you don’t want to use gravel use aggregate / Bajri

      Double storey 3.5 Marla house construction cost will be 30 LAC as you can use some old material like bricks
      For house design and elevation its better to hire some architect in your local area.
