      Total covered area for your home is 2400
      Labor rate is approximately 300 per sq ft
      Average house price construction rate with material is 2500 per sq ft
      It will cost you approximately 60 Lac to build your house.
      Best way is to first construct grey structure
      Then buy finishing material according to your budget
      Material rates depend and vary according to areas
      so collect material rates from your local suppliers
