5 marla house construction cost GREY with FINISHING

In previous costing videos and detailed articles we told our viewers in detail about house construction costs for grey structure and finishing separately. We had many queries about combined construction cost of house. In this video and article we will tell our viewers briefly without calculating quantities about overall 5 marla house construction cost. This cost article is just for the guidance of laymen who are interested in getting their house constructed on their own and as told before we do not recommend a complete GREY + FINISH turnkey contract if you are intending to get your house built by a construction company.

This article and video is dedicated for a 5 marla plot only. Per square feet construction cost of a smaller house is alway higher as compared to big houses due to various reasons. It is to be noted here that this article and video will briefly explain about complete 5 marla house construction cost. For detailed calculations you will have to refer to our previous costing videos in which we have explained grey structure and finishing cost separately with quantities.

In this combined construction cost video for GREY + FINISH for a 5 marla house, grey structure considered is of the PREMIUM PLUS grade quality without any compromise as we have always recommended that even if your are on a tighter budget, there should be no compromise in grey structure quality. For finishing we have explained cost for three different grades as following:

  1. Economical finish (B grade)
  2. Standard finish (A grade)
  3. Premium finish (A+ grade)
