As you probably already know, building a house is, generally speaking, much cheaper than buying one, but it does assume that 'all other things are equal'. Some important considerations are location, clearing of land, drainage, security of materials, fixtures, transportation, and last and by no means least, demand and the general economic state of the industry and country. You'll also need to consider having the right professionals Shannon, from the land surveyor to 'finshers' (painter, tilers etc). Having the right professional could be key to ensure it turns out more economical quality work and professionalism thus preventing 'overuns'. By the way, Avia Collinder of the Gleaner posted a very informative article sometime ago that should provide you some useful info. You might want to have a look at it (link below).

Jan 01, 2017

I'm looking at building a basic, 2 bedroom structure of approx 1200 sqft on existing land that hasn't been graded yet (if it's even necessary). The spitball estimate is around $15,000 CDN (Jan 2017) with strong local support. Your materials costs will be influenced by your connections. A 3000 sqft, multistory house would likely run close to $200,000 CDN. Take this info with a grain of salt obviously. Im in Jamaica at the moment bouncing ideas off a family member.

currently doing a lot of addition to my house by: Anonymous

Feb 19, 2016

Large registered contractor businesses will charge about 1/2 a million to a million dollars per 100 sq foot room for just the foundation and walls. A seasoned mason from 'off a the road' will charge about 150k to 250k per room, but you have to have a good amount of knowledge about building and time to watch them work, so that they have a deep enough foundation, keep things square/plumb/level, measure the concrete/mortar mix properly, and have a good method of tying rebar and stirrups, otherwise they will take some serious shortcuts. Also have a signed contract of what they will do for how much money.Never pay more than a 10% deposit up front. Some good simple building manuals for earthquake resistant buildings can be found online, just google 'confined masonry'. You also have to be able to secure your building materials, thieves are constantly scouring for easy pick ups. The government has a keen eye on building taking place in middle to upper class portions of the corporate area, so registered building plans and inspection are pretty much mandatory. Almost no-one bothers with that stuff for lower income/rural areas An electrician will charge about 3k to 5k per each outlet, bulb or switch, plumbers 15k to 20k to set up sewer main. I do the rest of my own plumbing and all tiling so no clue as to those costs. A roofer charges about 30 to 40k per square for ranch roofing and half that for flat. Slab roof is about 30k (mason off the road )per 100 sq feet.

Avoid Building Mistakes by: Anonymous

Oct 31, 2015

Before you build. You must determine the cost by having a proper scaled drawing. The Bill of quantities will be generated from drawings and designs. Outside of that you are playing a guessing game with Contractors and this could and often leads to confusion and dis-trust. Before you build have the appropriate design completed then you calculate your cost.

I would like to add a second floor to my mother's house and am thinking of the roofing cost. I want a roof that is first of all secure, to withstand criminals and hurricanes, then durable durable and inexpensive. Also, I want a roof that will somehow cool down the house. I saw where Gore Developers switched to concrete roofing with a white finishing for its New Harbour project. Will a concrete pitched roof meet my objectives? How will it compare in cost to other types of roofs? And will I be able to get a contractor to do it since this is not a popular type of roof (the flat concrete slab is what is popular)?

Cost Per Ft Or Metre To Build A house in Jamaica by: Basil

Aug 05, 2014

What the cost per sq. ft. to build a complete house in Jamaica? Editor's Note Hi Basil, The rates do change and there are various factors to be considered. You might do well with a Master Building construction Rate sheet. Scroll below and look at the recommendation we made. There is a phone number there as well. Regards, Wellesley

Master Building Construction Rate Sheet by: Wellesley

Jul 25, 2014

I have gotten the question about where to get a Jamaica Master Building Construction rate sheet here on the site, so I went and did some research. If you are in Jamaica, I would suggest that you contact the nearest parish council office. They by themselves might not have one, as there is a cost to it, but they will be able to suggest companies that provides that service. In Montego Bay, where I am at there is a company called Design Sanctuary that provides it for 700JMD. Their number is 876-971-2584.
