    I want to construct 08Marla (30*60) Ground Floor only in Al-Rehman Garden, Lahore.

    1.) Do you have any specific format of quotation? I wan to study the estimated cost and tentative raw materials details of Grey Structure.

    2.) Would it be better to construct only ground floor with possible front elevation as of single story??

    pls guide

      Grey structure single storey house will cost you Rs. 1400/- per sq ft
      Yes single storey house is ok
      Get drawings of double storey house
      First construct single storey house
      When ever you need to build second storey you can erect it
