average cost per square meter to build a house or fence in the Philippines
The average cost per square meter to build a house or fence in the Philippines depends on the exact location (city or province or island?), total floor area (make the house 2x bigger and the price will become 2x higher), the logistics/accessibility (is it possible to use a truck to bring the materials or do they have to be carried?), regulations/restrictions of the local government or subdivision ('they all have their own different rules'), soil-type, site preparation (maybe your house need to be higher than the road, backfill or retaining-wall?) neighbor-buildings (fire-wall?), availability of local skilled labor, source of electricity/water etc. plus you have to select what construction methods have to be used (solid concrete with- or without insulation etc.) and we need to know exact which brand, quality and colour tiles you want or what kind of windows, doors, kitchen etc. etc.
But we can build your concrete fence in the Philippines at up to 20% lower cost because we do not use those hollow blocks; we build with solid concrete.
