I'm very tempted to buy a piece of land an build on it.

It will be a mix of house and small scale food production, 

It's just under an acre and backs onto the Mekong  about 40 Klm outside of PP

Highway 6 about 4 klm after the Prekta Meak Bridge.


I don't need to infill the land as that was done over 10 yrs ago, 

I can construct a house or put housing containers on it as desired.


Basic building costs to a western standard need to be understood.

Cost per sq mtr for concrete slab with steel reinforcement is the first thing I need to understand.

Any suggestions on cost ???


Onto this I'll erect steel RSJ's to support the 2nd floor, roof, patio etc and create the 2nd level floor from light weight pre fabricated concrete panels that can be lifted into place.


This is just a thought and your comments are appreciate.

We priced concrete - redi-mix, from a guy near the farm. $50 - $55 USD per m3. From Battambang, delivered to the farm would be as high as $70 USD per m3, if buying at least 6 m3 at once.

Ready-mixed concrete is the easy way! Calculate what quantity you need, such as the area and depth per meter. Have all your shuttering and re-bar in place, and access for the wagon to pore the cement, then you just need to tamper the cement.

Alternately work out the area and materials, for mixing yourself. Hire day labour. This may work out at a lower cost, but maybe more planning and hassle. :)
