How Much Does It Cost To Build A House? /(House Construction Cost in Sri Lanka)
House Construction Cost Per Square Foot in Sri lanka
When looking at a cost per square foot or cost per square meter rate to build a house, always ask what is included and what is excluded, we’ve seen proposals filled with cost per square meter rates that excluded foundations.
If we say house construction rates in sri lanka between RS.3500/= and Rs.5500, you would be looking at 120sqm to 190sqm of stunning home. It is a large difference, but much depends on the style of house design, material specifications and ease of working on site (including ground works). There will be many variables in your final cost depending on where you live, the total square footage, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, type of flooring, cabinets, appliances, etc. This is why we suggest getting in touch with Kedella Homes and having a discussion to go through brief, site and budget to understand what is affordable. In addition to the cost of your land, costs vary considerably based on location and all your choices in design and interior and exterior finishes.
Average Cost To Build A House in Sri lanka
The average cost to build a house is between Rs.4500/= to Rs.6600/= per square foot depending on your location, size of the home, and if modern or custom designs are used. New home construction for a 2,000 square foot home runs Rs. 9000000/= to Rs.13200000/= on average.
If you do decide to go custom design, your dream home will only account for 70% or less of your final costs. Then you’ll have to factor in the cost of the land, financing, finishing out the lot, landscaping, and more.
How is the builder paid?
You need to be paid in installments, at each stage of the home build.
As each stage is complete, from grading the land and then pouring the concrete slab that serves as the foundation, to erecting the structure of the house, to installing the electric, HVAC and other systems, to putting in the drywall, to installing the “hard surfaces” within the home, your lender(Bank) will send an inspector out to make sure that the work in that stage has been completed, before releasing funds. 0702 222 111

- Closeness of neighbors
- Slope/flatness of land
- Direction the plot faces (Where will the sun be?)
- Natural surroundings (forest, field, water, etc.)
- Trees (Remember – tall, old trees can’t just be planted)
- The style of other houses in the neighborhood (if applicable)
- Access to resources (Will you need a well? Septic tank? New power or phone line ?)
- Having a view versus privacy
Talk to a Professional! Although it is not necessary, having a professional such as an architect or professional house builder look at the property you are interested in may save your some headaches down the line by ensuring you can do what you want on that piece of land.
Frequently asked questions
We’re thinking about building a custom home, but have never built before. What are the things we should consider?
Some considerations are the same for building a home and buying an existing home, such as location, affordability and the suitability of the home for your lifestyle. When building a custom home, you need to be prepared to commit some time, especially in the planning stage. This is where your list of “must haves”, “like to haves”, and “if we could only” features begin to take shape. At the same time, you should be settling in on a lot, considering financing options and choosing a builder. One of the key elements of custom home-building success is in the high degree of communications between the home builder and homeowner. During construction, you will need to make a myriad of decisions on the details. And in every project of this size, there usually are some unexpected challenges, including weather. So be prepared to continue your commitment of time and insist on a schedule for construction, communications and good follow-through and assistance from your builder. As you can see, building a custom home takes time and commitment, but fortunately it almost always is an exciting and rewarding challenge, with the resulting custom home a reflection of you.
Do you have model homes or is each home built from scratch?
Yes. We are doing both. Kedella Homes design and build model homes. For us, model homes are a focal point for new ideas and fresh concepts, as well as a showcase for our favorite features, such as open floor plans, striking entryways, elegantly functional kitchens, beautiful stairways and of course distinctive fireplaces. We love to brainstorm with our customers in our model because it provides the perfect backdrop to visually explore ideas, define needs, talk about features and figure out how the home we build for them will be uniquely theirs. Of course, We offer our model Homes for sale as they are built, and many times a prospective customer will decide to make it their own long before it is finished. But we always make sure to reserve time to “show off” the latest model homes so we can meet new people to brainstorm with.
What kinds of architectural styles do you offer?
Just about any architectural style you can think of. We don’t just work off a fixed set of floor plans, and we’re not limited to certain styles that we’ve done in the past. In fact, if you really want us to get excited about your home, ask us to design and build a home we’ve never done before!
Is building more expensive than buying?
Due to lack of supply of newly built homes, increases the demand, which makes finding an existing home within your price range more difficult, and when you do find it, you may overpay for it. Because of this, we’re seeing more and more families opt to build a new home. And they’re finding out that doing so is actually more cost effective than purchasing an existing home when you factor in the costs of maintaining and updating an existing home versus walking into a brand new home.
How long does it take to build a new home?
There’s a huge misconception when it comes to a realistic building timeline. We understand that it goes over better to tell a client that a home can be built in just a few months, but that’s a misleading comment. In all reality, building a new home entails much more than just the actual construction phase of the process.
you’re well aware that a perfectly executed and planned out construction schedule can easily be delayed by weeks or months depending on weather. So all in all, a 7-8 month process is the most realistic timeline we can provide to you, and that’s if there aren’t any major delays during the actual construction of the home.
Is a 2-story house more expensive to build?
Two-story homes are typically more cost effective to build simply because you can add square footage with each floor by stacking without increasing the size of the foundation or footprint of the structure. That being said, you can also save a significant amount of money by taking your plan from a walkout basement to a daylight basement.
Can I save money by choosing an existing set of plans instead of going through the custom design process?
It costs several thousand rupees to have a new house plans drawn up for your home, and so some people ask themselves: “If I just choose a set of existing plans, won’t I avoid the whole design process and save the time and money?” While this is seems logical, our experience over the years has shown that the cost savings between creating a custom design vs choosing a “predesigned” home plan is basically no cost savings at all. we build each home to suit the exact needs and desires of the client. However, we do have a collection of floor plans for some of the homes we’ve previously built to give people ideas for inspiration.
Here’s why: predesigned plans are designed to fit a general list of requirements to appeal to as wide an audience as possible. With a plan that’s this generic, you’ll usually find yourself trying to fit your family and your lifestyle into a home that wasn’t designed with you in mind. So think about it this way: when you’re building a home, every additional square foot costs you lots of rupees (Average cost to build a house in sri lanka is about Rs4500/sq ft). With this in mind, if your home has just 100 square feet of wasted space in the stock floor plans, you’ve just paid Rs.450000/= for extra room you’ll never use. Building a new home avoids having this unnecessary square footage in the first place, so while you may spend Rs50,000-Rs150,000 on a new set of plans, you don’t have to build a home from a plan you like but that has 200 square feet more than you need. So if we can save you that 200 square feet, you’ve just avoided spending 900000/=. Not a bad deal, right?
When we begin our design and build process with a new client, we don’t ask “Would you like floor plan A, B or C?” — instead, we ask “How do you live your life?" and through a long line of questioning, we will create a home design that works for you.
You call yourself a ‘design and build’ contractor. What does that mean?
Here’s the quick answer: design and build contracting is a building process where a builder is involved with every aspect of a construction project from the very beginning of the design process.
What are the advantages of ‘design and build’?
The design build methodology has many advantages and as such is considered to be the most cost-effective, most efficient and fastest building process. Under this approach Kedella Homes is the home designer and the home builder and so we combine the two functions in the process which maximizes communication, minimize confusion and put your entire project on the fast tract to completion. Kedella Homes as your single source, you benefit from six advantages.
- Single Firm Responsibility - Kedella Homes is responsible for every phase of the project so the client knows who is always accountable.
- Save Time - The elimination of time-consuming for estimations and redesigning plans in the design and construction period significantly reduced. This lowers your cost and allows you to open and make use of your home at the earliest possible date.
- Greater Control of The Project - As Kedella Homes is responsible for every stage of the project, a greater degree of control will be exhibited resulting in improved quality in the design and construction, reduction in cost, and earlier delivery time.
- House Construction Cost can be Estimated Sooner - With design-build, your house cost can be estimated much sooner, even before final construction drawings. This can lower your pre-construction costs prior to your project cost being estimated.
- Fewer Changes - By putting design and construction under one company and keeping communication easy, we make costly change orders the exception, rather than the rule.
- Improved Risk Management - Kedella Homes balances risk and responsibility appropriately and clearly defines expectations regarding costs, schedules, quality and safety compliance.
