### How to Work With House Construction Cost Calculator.

As you decide to build a new house search for contractors to get information about the construction rate of your area.

**What Is Construction Rate?**

It is the cost/money charged by a builder or contractor for 1 sq.ft. construction of your area.

Construction rate per sq. ft. are changed from location too to location depends on the availability of local construction material.

For if you are constructing a house in an urban area where construction materials are easily available at a competitive rate, the rate of construction area lower.

On the other hand, if you are constructing any structure in a rural area where the availability of construction material is less, and there is a need for transportation, the rate of construction will go higher.

For example,

The average cost of construction is about **1000 to 1500 Rs. Per sq. ft.**

Sometimes it splits into the following categories,

- For Low Quality Construction = 750 Rs./Sq. ft.
- For Normal Quality Construction =1000 Rs./Sq. ft.
- For Medium Quality Construction = 1200 Rs./Sq. ft.
- For High Quality Construction = 1500 Rs./Sq. ft.

So, if you have 750 sq.ft area and you want to construct a normal quality construction, the rate of construction per will be around 750 Rs. per sq. ft.

Cost of construction = Area of plot * Construction rate per Sq. ft.

Cost of construction = 750 * 750 = 5,62,500 Rs. **(including all labor and materials cost)**

If Someone wants to know how this cost comes and asks about what is the cost of materials and labor, then we need to calculate material quantity separately.

I have made the **House Construction Cost Calculator Excel sheet **with separate quantity calculations.

5 . Add your local area material rate in the field to get accurate results. **(if you don’t have kept it same still it give accurate result)**

6. So, the Total Cost of Construction Material **Rs. 3.34 Lakhs** in already adding Building Construction cost **Rs. 5.62 Lakhs.**
