    I want to build a simple double story 5 marla house in BTK Ali Block. What are the desing/layout constraints? How much space should be left uncovered on front & back? Do you have any idea about front elevation because BT haven’t revealed it yet.

    I have 7 marla plot in a housing society. 1 marla is 250 sqft.

    Want to know what is considered as covered area and how much its going to be in my case in 7 marla?

    Does area left for small lawn,galleries and car porch is also calculated as covered area?

    A contractor told me its going to be 3600 sq ft for double story and cost me about 80 lac with medium finish. While you said in your earlier reply its going to be around 50-55 lac.

    Please advise as i am new to all this and managing everything on my own.

    Salam and best regards.

      Lawn and open area is not calculated in covered area
      I gave you estimate at Rs. 2,500/- per sq ft for 2000-2200 sq ft covered area
      As your covered area is 3600 sq ft
      You builder is honest and his estimation is very reasonable
      your builder is just charging you 2223 per sq ft for normal construction
      Just sign contract with your builders as rate may rise soon

      First floor covered area is normally less than ground floor
      Also first floor construction cost is less than ground floor as ground floor has foundations too
      7 Marla house first floor will cost you approximately 20-22 LAC

      Your budget is bit less
      What I will suggest you.
      1- Complete grey structure work first
      2- After grey structure just look at your budget and then select finished for your home.
      In other words complete you home step by step or in stages

    Reply
    • Muhamamd Syed
      Basements are more practical and useful for 1 Kanal houses.
      I will not recommend basement for 5 MARLA HOUSE.
      REASONS
      1-Space limitations
      2-You will increase the cost of construction but when you sell 5 Marla house, buyer will not be willing to pay extra quids for your efforts.

      5 Marla house A+ Category will cost you 55 Lac
      With basement add 5-7 Lac extra.
