How much does it cost to build a house? /(Price of building a house in Sri Lanka)
Cost of building a house per square meter in Sri Lanka
When looking at cost per square foot or cost per square foot to build a home, always ask what is included and what is not excluded. We have seen proposals with prices per square meter without foundation.
If we say that residential construction in Sri Lanka is between 3500 and 5500 rupees, you would be looking at a beautiful house of 120 m² to 190 m². That's a big difference, but a lot depends on the design style of the house, material specifications and ease of work on the site (including foundation work). There will be many variables in your final cost depending on where you live, total square footage, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, type of flooring, wardrobes, appliances, etc. So we recommend that you contact Kedella Homes and discuss going through the brief, site and budget in order to understand what is affordable. In addition to the price of your land, costs vary significantly depending on location and all of your design choices and interior and exterior finishes.
The average cost of building a house in Sri Lanka
The average house construction cost is between Rs.4500/= to Rs.6600/= per square meter depending on your location, size of the house and whether modern or custom designs are used. A new residential construction for a 2000 sq ft house will cost Rs. 9000000/= to Rs.13200000/= on an average.
If you choose to design to order, your dream home will be only 70% or less of your final cost. Then you have to consider land cost, financing, lot completion, landscaping, and more.
Be aware that some house builders in Sri Lanka overcharge and hide important details to get your project. Don't be fooled.
How is the contractor paid?
You have to be paid in installments, at every stage of building the house.
As each phase is completed, from leveling the terrain and pouring the concrete slab that serves as the foundation, through the installation of the house structure, through the installation of electrical, HVAC and other systems, through the installation of drywall, to the installation of "hard surfaces". " in the house, your lender (bank) will send an inspector to check that the work has been completed at that stage, before the funds are disbursed.0702 222 111

Factors to consider when looking for land for your new home
Where you build is almost as important as how. And the location of your home will affect what you want and can do with the home, structurally and aesthetically.
When viewing real estate, keep the following in mind:
- Plot size
- Close to neighbors
- Slope/level of the land
- According to the faces of the plot (Where will the sun be?)
- Natural environment (forest, field, water, etc.)
- Trees (remember - tall, old trees can't just be planted)
- Style of other houses in the area (if applicable)
- Access to resources (Need a well? Septic tank? New power or phone line?)
- Having a view versus privacy
Talk to a professional! While not necessary, having an expert like an architect or professional home improvement engineer come to a property you're interested in can save you headaches later by making sure you can do whatever you want with that piece of land.
Frequently asked questions
We are thinking about building a custom home, but have never built one before. What should we take care of?
Some considerations are the same for building a home and buying an existing home, such as location, affordability, and the home's suitability for your lifestyle. When building a custom home, you should be prepared to spend some time, especially in the planning phase. This is where your list of must-have, love-to-have, and wish-to-have features begins to take shape. At the same time, you have a lot to agree on, consider financing options and choose a builder. One of the most important elements to the success of custom home building is a high level of communication between the home builder and the home owner. During construction, you have to make many decisions about the details. And with any project of this size, there are usually some unexpected challenges, including time. So be prepared to continue with your time commitment and insist on construction planning, communication and good follow-up and assistance from your builder. As you can see, building a custom home takes time and dedication, but luckily it's almost always an exciting and rewarding challenge, and the resulting custom home is a reflection of you.
Do you have model homes or is every home built from scratch?
That. We do both. Kedella Homes designs and builds 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, inviting entryways, elegantly functional kitchens, beautiful staircases and, of course, characterful fireplaces. We love brainstorming with our clients about our model because it provides the perfect backdrop to visually explore ideas, define needs, talk about features and discover how the home we're building for them will be unique to them. Of course, we offer our model homes for sale as built, and often a potential client will decide to build their own long before it's finished. But we always make sure to take the time to "show" the latest model homes so we can meet new people to brainstorm with.
What styles of construction do you offer?
Any architectural style you can think of. We don't just work with a fixed set of floor plans and we're not limited to certain styles that we've done in the past. If you really want us to be thrilled with your home, ask us to design and build a home like we've never done before!
Is building more expensive than buying?
A lack of new home supply increases demand, making it harder to find an existing property in your price range, and if you do find one, you may be overpaying for it. As a result, we see that more and more families decide to build a new house. And they've found that it's actually more cost-effective than buying an existing home when you factor in the cost of maintaining and updating your existing home versus going into a brand new home.
How long does it take to build a new home?
There is a big misconception when it comes to a realistic construction timeline. We understand that it is better to tell the client that the house can be built in a few months, but this is a wrong statement. In reality, building a new home involves much more than just the construction phase of the process.
you know very well that a perfectly executed and planned construction plan can easily be delayed by weeks or months depending on the weather. So, all in all, a process of 7-8 months is the most realistic deadline we can offer you, and that is if there are no major delays in the construction of the house itself.
Is a two-story house more expensive to build?
Two-story houses tend to be more cost-effective to build simply because each floor allows you to add square footage by stacking them without increasing the foundation or floor plan of the structure. Additionally, you can also save a significant amount of money by switching your plan from a strike basement to a day basement.
Can I save money by choosing an existing range of plans instead of going through the custom design process?
Creating a new house plan costs several thousand rupees, which makes some people wonder, "If I just choose a set of existing plans, can't I bypass the entire design process and save time and money?" While this may seem logical, our experience over the years has shown that the cost savings between doing a custom design versus choosing a "pre-designed" house plan is not really a cost savings at all. We build each home to the exact needs and wants of the customer, but we have a collection of floor plans of some of the homes we have built before to inspire people.
Here's why: Pre-designed plans are designed to meet a general list of requirements to appeal to the widest possible audience. With such a generic plan, you'll usually find yourself trying to fit your family and your lifestyle into a home that wasn't designed with you in mind. Think of it this way: if you are building a house, every extra square foot will cost you a lot of rupees (the average cost of building a house in Sri Lanka is around Rs4500/sq ft). Keeping this in mind, if your house has only 100 square feet of wasted space in the basic floor plans, you have just paid Rs.450,000/= for extra space that you will never use. By building a new house you avoid that unnecessary square footage, so while you may spend Rs 50,000 to Rs 150,000 on a new set of plans, you don't have to build a house based on a plan you like but which is 200 square meters more than you need. So if we can save you that 200 square feet, you've just avoided spending 900,000/=. Not a bad deal, right?
When we begin the design and construction process with a new client, we don't ask, "Do you want floor plan A, B, or C?" - instead we ask "How do you live your life?" and through a long series of questions we will create a home design that suits you.
You call yourself a "design and build" contractor. What does that mean?
Here's a quick answer: design-build contracts are a construction process where the builder is involved in every aspect of the construction project from the very beginning of the design process.
What are the advantages of designing and making?
The design-build method has many advantages and as such is considered the most cost-effective, efficient and fastest construction. In this approach, Kedella Homes is a home designer and a home builder, so we combine the two functions in a process that maximizes communication, minimizes confusion, and brings your entire project to quick completion. With Kedella Homes as your one-stop source, you enjoy six benefits.
