Build a House in Thailand: Planning- The Best time to Start by Bangkok Builder

Bangkok builder often gets asked when the best time to start building a house in Thailand and how best to plan in regards time and seasons.

The best way to consider the planning is to consider the timing and how long each stage takes to complete.

The best time to start a construction project is when the weather is dry and there is little rain. So in Thailand from November to January is probably the best time. However you can start at other times during the year but naturally heavy rain delays works. But all of this should be considered.

The Architectural Stage

The architectural stage takes a minimum of 3-4 months for the architect to complete the detailed construction drawings, after the preliminary design stage has been confirmed by you. So you need to include this in your planning.

It is never a good idea to rush the architect or architectural stage. So with the stages involved, our advice would be to give you a minimum of 6 months for architectural stage. It can be quicker, but to be on the safe side allow a minimum of 6 months.

Application for Permissions to build

Every building project requires the permissions to build from the local government authority. The time this takes depends on the type of project and the specific area. House permission can take 2 weeks or several months. But from our experience, for a single house, it normally is quite quick, as long as everything you supply is correct – So a few weeks is normal. You must check with your local authority.

Construction Stage

The construction schedule and time it takes to complete a construction project, depends on the individual project, so it varies. For a standard size house it can take approximately 10-12 months. For larger more luxurious home it can take 12 to 18 months. If you build with Bangkok Builder we provide the time it takes in our contracts and a schedule of works. The construction contractor should provide the projected time to build and a schedule of works. So you must discuss this with the construction contractor before starting the project, as each project is different. Bangkok builder talks to you about this at the time before starting and gives you clear time frames of how long we think it will take. Weather and suppliers do affect how long it takes, but from our experience the above time frames are a good guide. Trying to rush a construction project is never a good idea, so give yourself sensible time scales.

We hope this helps give you some idea of the time scales and best times to consider starting your project. Please contact us for further information.

House Construction in Thailand – Bangkok Builder

Bangkok Construction Contractor: Bangkok Builder Can Help
Building a house in Thailand can be an enjoyable proposition and you can result in you having a wonderful home. But careful consideration must be given to how long it takes, the correct steps and working with a professional construction contractor.

The two main parts are the architectural design stage and then the construction stage. Bangkok builders can provide both or part of this. If you have architectural drawings completed by a licenced Thai architect and Thai engineer, we can provide you a quotation to build your house. If you do not have architectural drawings, we can also offer this service too. We have our own English speaking Thai architects who have assisted many people like you, design their home.
To design and build a house in Thailand, you are looking realistically at a minimum of 12-18 months, maybe more. This is determined by various factors, including the size and complexity of the house and how quickly the design comes together. An average size house in Thailand will take up to 12 months to build. Smaller houses maybe are able to be constructed in 10 months. All of this can be discussed and confirmed when you contact us at www.bangkokbuilder.com

Thailand Construction Costs: How much does it cost to build a house ?

We often get asked how much does it cost to build a house in Thailand, or what are the construction costs in Thailand ? So we will try to offer some insight into what to expect and how to do it correctly.

A professional construction person if genuine, would not give you simply a figure without informing you, that construction costs vary according to the individual project and who is building it and what they provide within their quotation. It is impossible to know accurate construction costs until you have finished architectural drawings, have knowledge of the specifications, size, site conditions and what materials are being used. Each house is different, as the architects drawings are different, the materials are different, the site conditions could be different and all the other varying factors. Costs are calculated once all architects drawings are completed. A cost quotation can take 2-4 weeks depending on the size of house.

To know costs, the builder has to know from the architects drawings facts such as: what type, product and manufacturer of each material and every aspect of the construction. This includes, windows, roof tiles, doors, electrical systems, sockets, light switches, insulation, wall material, pumps, bathroom finishes, tiles, floor coverings, light fittings, wood, steel, concrete, cement and all the other materials used within the construction. What size, what quantity, what product etc ? They need to know the details and information, then calculate quantities and amounts required to complete the construction. It is the only accurate way to know the cost. So to answer how much a house costs to build in Thailand, is a very difficult question to answer, as you can see, it varies according to each project.

What Bangkok Builder does, if our architect is designing the home, is to provide an approximate projected, construction cost, when our architect provides the architectural job description and fee proposal for architecture. It cannot be 100% accurate, as it will change during the design development stage and also we have no knowledge of the materials or specifications yet. But we try to give you an approximate projected guide. It is no guarantee of cost at all and is helpful information based on the architects experience in construction costs. But it gives you some idea for a starting point.

To do construction correctly and follow the correct process, you must work with the architect and have your architectural drawings completed first, before knowing accurate costs to build the house. You can discuss budgets with them and they can try their best to design a home within your budgets. But do remember that any changes or requests you make, during the architectural stage, alter that projected cost. So it is always a good idea if you are on a restrictive budget, to let the architect know in advance.

Approximate Information of House Construction Costs in Thailand: Remember construction costs can increase over time and because of market forces. But as of this date in 2017, we have seen the construction cost for houses be any where from 20,000 baht per sq.m to 40,000 baht per sq.m, depending on everything we have mentioned in this article. It can be more if the house is high spec and a high end luxury house. But for a good, standard home, maybe 25,000 to 30,000 baht per sq.m. Can it be less, yes of course. We have seen costs be 20,000 Baht per sq.m for lower end, small homes with lower specifications and material standards. This is not a cost quotation from us, as we do not have the required information yet, but it is merely a guide to be helpful to give you an approximate idea. But the only true way to know, is have your architectural drawings completed, all specifications and materials known. Then a professional cost quotation done by the construction contractor. It is too misleading to try and guess it without all of that accurate information.

If you would like Bangkok Builder to help you with construction costs, then please contact us. We do our best to help you restrict the costs as much as we can. But remember the only true way to know the cost of your house to build, is to have finished architects drawings. So it is best to start there and talk with our architect so we know what your expectations are and your approximate budget. Our advice is always follow the correct procedure, talk to our architect, talk to us and we can help you understand it more clearly. Do it correctly and you can have your house built to what you can afford, to a good standard. We are always happy to help and offer our best suggestions.

Land Boundary Survey and Boundary Marker Post Check

If you are about to build a house in Thailand or carry out a construction project in Thailand, it is very important as the land owner, to have your land boundary lines and markers checked by the local government department.  It is inexpensive and well worth doing to avoid any potential issues that could arise if the land boundary lines and markers are not accurate, or not exactly the same as shown on the title deed.

The local land department office should be able to assist you, or direct you to the right persons to talk to. They will let you know when they can come to the land and do a survey to check boundaries and marker posts against your title deed.  Land owners should have one done; to avoid potential problems such as conflicts with neighbors, in regards their land boundary.

For example, if you build the garden wall and it infringes onto the neighbors land, then they could ask you to knock it down. Or your house when built may not be in the correct location according to regulations, so have a boundary survey check done. Bangkok Builder recommends anyone who owns land and is going to carry out construction in Thailand, or build a house, to have this done.  It is easy and not costly, but gives you a good degree of peace of mind.
