NAHB recently published the latest construction cost survey.  This survey data shows that while the average price of a single family home has dropped over the last two years, the share of that price which goes to construction cost and finished lot cost has not changed significantly. The average price of a new single-family home in NAHB’s 2011 survey was $310,619, down from $377,624 in 2009.  In 2011, the cost of construction accounted for nearly 60% of the final sales price of an average home , while the cost of the finished lot accounted for 22%. Although the share of the price going towards the cost of construction has remained stable over the last two years, the actual cost of constructing a new single-family home in 2011 is significantly less than in 2009.  The average construction cost of homes in the new survey is $184,125, while the 2009 cost was $221,511. In addition to declines in the size of a home, profit accounted for an all-time low of just 6.8% of the final sales price in 2011. The construction of a house in the Philippines is a process involving more than a dozen trades, hundreds of products, and thousands of steps that must be scheduled, coordinated, and performed quickly and correctly; to give a cost for that WITHOUT knowing the following details would be GUESSWORK which is not good for both you and the home builder. Expats in the Philippines demand better quality, higher ceilings, and that comes with a higher price. The cost per sq mt is just a statistical figure.  When you have the plans, we can give an itemized cost estimate. So the only correct way to know how much the cost will be of building a home in the Philippines is when you already own a lot and the blueprints. But what if you only want to know an estimated house construction cost as to prepare your budget for the future? Build a house in the Philippines completely by yourself and save (maybe) a whooping 20% if you are able- and willing to spend a lot of time (as in fulltime) on the building site, can keep records, manage a dozen of trades, hundreds of building materials, and thousands of steps that must be scheduled, coordinated, and performed quickly and correctly to finish the project, for about 4 months, probably much longer.
A comprehensive list of ways to induce labor naturally, as well as a guide to when and how you should use the methods listed.

Agricultural farm fencing is one of the major costs when operaterating an agricultural property or farm livestock business.
This publication compares the costs of building a quarter-mile (1,320 feet) straight perimeter fence with four different types of permanent fencing plus temporary interior fencing. The type of fencing selected varies by personal choice and the species of livestock to be confined. The list of materials needed for each type of fencing is from Costs of Cattle Fencing for Grazing Areas (see references at the end of the article).
Fencing can be configured in many different ways, using various types of fencing materials. The woven wire fence (see Table 1) employs a brace that uses two 8-inch diameter posts and a 4-inch diameter cross-brace at each end. Materials for the barbed wire fence (see Table 2) are similar to the woven wire fence except that five strands of 12-gauge barbed wire are substituted for the woven wire and single strand of barbed wire. The high tensile non-electric fence (see Table 3) uses eight strands of 12.5-gauge high-tensile wire on 4-inch diameter pressure-treated wood posts.
An alternative is to set posts 30 feet apart and place two stay rods in the wire between each set of posts. The high tensile electrified fence (see Table 4) uses five strands of 12.5 gauge high tensile wire with three charged and two grounded wires. If substituting polytape for polywire, the total will increase by about $40 because polytape costs about twice as much as polywire. Ownership costs for polywire and polytape are more difficult to estimate than for other types of fencing.
Three rails of good substantial material fastened in or to good substantial posts not more than ten feet apart.
Three boards not less than six inches wide and three-quarters of an inch thick, fastened in or to good substantial posts not more than eight feet apart. Three wires, barbed with not less than thirty-six iron barbs of two points each, or twenty-six iron barbs of four points each, on each rod of wire, or of four wires, two thus barbed and two smooth, the wires to be firmly fastened to posts not more than two rods apart, with not less than two stays between posts, or with posts more than one rod apart without such stays, the top wire to be not more than fifty-four nor less than forty-eight inches in height.
Wire either wholly or in part, substantially built and kept in good repair, the lowest or bottom rail,  wire, or board not more than twenty nor less than sixteen inches from the ground, the top rail, wire or board to be between forty-eight and fifty-four inches in height and the middle rail, wire, or board not less than twelve nor more than eighteen inches above the bottom rail, wire or board. A fence consisting of four parallel, coated steel, smooth high-tensile wire which meets requirements adopted by ASTM International (formerly, American Society of Testing and Materials) including but not limited to requirements relating to the grade, tensile strength, elongation, dimensions and tolerances of the wire.


Any other kind of fence which the fence viewers consider to be equivalent to a lawful fence or which meets the standards established by the department of agriculture and land stewardship by rule as equivalent to a lawful fence.
One of the reasons the county has you fill out all of these forms and pay the fees, is so that they can properly inspect new construction in the area. A gas inspector came to have a look at the line that we ran from the house gas meter to the gas pool heater.
The excavator showed up right on time, but Randy didn’t want to dig as there was a good chance of rain coming. We had one big tree that would have needed to come out – but 9 months before we had a tornado that took care of that for us.
The excavator returned to the job after we had built the pool and had the concrete collar inspected, to backfill around the pool walls and level off the area around the pool. Randy and his team essentially put together the pool walls, prepped the floor and installed the liner. For the cost to wire up the pool equipment electrical, I contracted with a local electrical service company to bring power to the equipment pad and set up a subpanel.
Even though plumbing was included in my pool kit, I wanted to upgrade to 2″ plumbing, to handle the high flow of the variable speed pool pump.

This was similar to results from our last survey in 2009.  Please keep in mind that the average price of a new single-family home is a national number and varies significantly by region. It’s a complete waste of time to look on the Internet for home designs while not yet knowing how many square meter house you can afford. Just ask any Philippine architect or local contractor; he knows from his previously built homes plus his experience how much the average estimated cost per square meter floor area is to build your house in the Philippines. The type of fence constructed greatly impacts the cost per foot, total cost, and annual ownership cost. These are: woven wire, barbed wire, high-tensile non-electric, high-tensile electrified and temporary interior fencing. In general all configurations shown can be used with cattle, woven wire and high-tensile electrified can be used with sheep, and woven wire can be used with hogs. Costs were adjusted to 2011 prices provided by a number of Iowa retailers, although prices may vary.
The examples in this publication provide a general comparison between the following five configurations. Bracing uses three 8-inch diameter posts and two 4-inch diameter cross braces on each end. With the exception of the end posts, fiberglass rod posts are used and spaced 40 feet apart. In addition to the initial material, labor and construction costs, owners need to determine depreciation and maintenance costs required over the useful life of the fencing. The costs include round figure dollars out of my pocket – as well as the cost of my personal time. I had to draw a simple drawing of my backyard showing pool location with measurements from house to pool and from pool to the rear and sides of yard. If we didn’t have these checks and balances, all sorts of unsafe structures (and pools) would be built. The first inspection came after the concrete collar was poured, and before we backfilled around the walls. Finally, after the pool was complete and filled with water, we had a final inspection on everything. We located an experienced pool excavator, and had an appointment set, during the week that Randy and his team were on site. I convinced him to go ahead with it anyway, and 30 minutes into the dig it started to pour. We had good access to the backyard from the street, and the excavator made less damage to the grass than I was prepared for.
We had 7 truckloads of dirt to get rid of that we weren’t going to need after backfilling.


He also wired up the LED pool lights, the AquaRite salt chlorine generator, Eco-Star pump and the electronic ignition for my Lochinvar pool heater. We had enough of the #2500 mix left over to pour a concrete pad for the equipment to sit on.
I wanted my pool to be nice to the environment, so I upgraded to a cartridge pool filter (saves water) and a variable speed pool pump (saves energy).
The cost below doesn’t include my pool deck, which, in my case should add around $10K to the overall cost, as we are installing a nice tile coping and 900 sq ft.
HVAC, siding, tiles and carpet, electrical wiring, and drywall each accounted for between 4% and 5% of total construction costs.  Below is a table detailing the single-family price and cost breakdown. 10% on basic house and if you add upgrades it might hit the 17% number as they have to spend more time researching and working on it. But how do you know what is the house construction cost per square meter to build a house in the Philippines? The estimated cost per square meter for a garage is of course lower than for the livingroom; so mostly the price per square meter which your Philippine contractor gives you is an average cost for the whole house.
In addition, the shape of the paddocks affects the amount of materials needed and labor required for construction of the fence.
One-fourth of the cost of an electric energizer is included in the cost of 1,320 feet of fence, assuming that such a unit would be used to energize at least a mile of fence. It included several common requirements such as set-backs, and told me what plans I would need to submit. Drove the packet back, and met with a permit person, who rubber stamped it and sent me to the cashier. Then we had an electrical inspector come to check out the electric for the lights and pool pump, and the bonding and grounding. The fence gates were checked for code compliance, and the doors from the house leading to the pool were equipped with door alarms. In addition, he connected a bonding wire from the pool shell to the electrical equipment, and grounded his electrical box installation. I also added the AquaRite salt water chlorine generator and the most energy efficient gas pool heater they make.
One quarter of the cost of an electric energizer is included in the cost of the 1,320 foot fence, assuming that such a unit would be used to energize at least a mile of fence. When I was ready, I made a call to schedule the inspection, and met the inspector at the house.
After backfilling, the excavator filled his dump truck with 7 loads of dirt, and took it – somewhere. My labor on this phase of construction was limited, about an hour to obtain a price from the electrician, and another hour assisting Randy’s team in getting the equipment ready for power.
I did contract separately with a plumber for the 40 ft of gas line that I had run from the meter to the heater.
Finally, to be really green, I upgraded the lighting, adding two ColorLogic LED pool lights, saving even more electricity. My pool also is much more expensive due to the equipment upgrades I chose to install, which added about $7.5K to the final cost. I did receive a $750 credit for equipment that I upgraded, so that brings the cost down below $26K.
