My contractor is charging 1475/Sqft only for the cement an metal work without flooring, wood work, toilet work . ..etc Is it too much?
Square feet cost is a vague term which has no scientific basis. For a manufacturing activity which takes not less than one year to complete with hundreds of materials and quite a few different type of labour for which cost goes up everyday, contractor is making a wild guess or gambling by giving a square feet rate. If there are hundred contractors each of them follow different standards(If at all they have any standards),different materials of different quantity, with different capability workers .
How can you compare rate of one contractor to another? As you will not give work without quoting a square feet rate, he is giving you such a rate. If he is smart ,lucky and capable of doing compromises in quality of construction without you noticing or understanding it, he may make good profit in spite of rising cost of all inputs. Unless you have a professional design, detailed implementation drawings by qualified experienced professional and mechanism to check construction going on, contractor will work as he pleases to get more profit
we are building our home and in the foundation above ground level, my mason told me to fill m sand clay so that no fungal problem later. is it right or better use the red sand for filling?
Red sand or gravel filling is fine if you use powdery form with forced filling of sand with water.To prevent pest in future,you have to get pest control treatment of inside basement and outside.There are professional agencies doing such pest control treatments.You can have a consultation visit by me to your site.
During the visit, I can study your problem in detail, take measurements from site and check on following aspects related to building/plot
1. Vasthu compliance
2. Architectural defects if any and improvements/modifications possible
3. Structural Engineering defects if any and improvements/modifications possible
4. Advice on future works related to building /plot
5. What our company can do to improve your construction work by quality, cost reduction and value addition of space

I would like to build a economic house at my plot in Kannur which is 70 cents.
I want build a house with Nadumuttam and with 4bedrooms. Approximate cost may fall to 50lakhs.
I need a consultant to site survey design complete drawing vasthu based traditional house.
What is the cost of consultation. How is it calculated? I have local contractor. Design must be introduced to my contractor. Please help me.
For building Design and Construction ,all architects are not alike.Each differ from other based on qualifications,talent,and exposure to design and construction of house.Naturally each person charge you in a different manner.
Even contractors differ from each other.I do not understand how can any one compare rates given by different contractors who do work in different manner with different engineering and quality standards
If we have to act as consultants for your house design and construction,we have to first visit site,study site conditions,discuss with you in detail on your needs for house and then start working on appropriate plan of the house for you which is the most important part of designing and building a house.Once the plan is discussed and finalised,we move on to construction either directly or as consultant in case you have a local contractor.
When we take up work directly and even when we act as consultants we give proper professional detailed Architectural and Structural Engineering drawings for each stage of construction to ensure that your house is not built as per convenience of an almost illiterate contractor simply to increase his profit while talking nicely with lots of smiles to you
In our projects each work is monitored properly to ensure the best possible and best engineering/Architectural standards.While we offer to give you good elements of traditional Kerala Architecture,we ensure that latest technology /trends are available to your only house.In short,goodness of tradition with excellence of modern technology
Dear Sir, I have gone through your blog and it is very informative.
Please clarify my doubt on construction of Hostel. I have a 3 cent plot near to techno park and would like to construct one Executive Hostel for bachelors. My doubt is,whether it is possible to construct a 3 storey hostel in 3 cents of land?
How may rooms can be constructed legally, in a 3 cents of land?
Do we require any special approvals for constructing lodges/ hostels?
Thanks in advance for your help,
Cents do not give any idea on frontage available close to road.Cents of land indicates only area of land.Specific side measurements are required to know how much can be built.Positions of roads nearby is also important.A local Architect/Engineer will be able to guide you on this after a site visit.You can also check with concerned local authority office with specific details of the plot like Survey No and location
