You want to buy a stand to build your dream home. You know what the cost of the stand is but how much will it more or less cost you to build your dream house? You don’t want to be in a position where you bought the site but cannot afford the building cost.

This building cost calculator will give you a good indication of what the building cost would be long before you have even approached an architect to design your house. You can also use this application to calculate what size house you can afford.

Designed to be user friendly, the Building Cost Calculator will give you estimated building costs instantaneously at your fingertips when you need it, while you are driving in your car or discussing it with your wife or family without the hassle or cost of first consulting with a professional.

Just tick in the square meter area of your proposed new dream house, select the level of finish and obtain an estimated cost in rand.

You can also establish an estimated cost for additions or renovations of rooms to your existing house. Simply select type of room for example kitchen, bathroom or sleeping room, select level of finish and obtain an estimated cost in rand.

For the more sophisticated user, estimated costs per unit of individual building elements are provided. The user can therefor calculate an estimated cost for building work by adding up individual building elements. For example by adding up the cost of a wall foundation in meter, brick wall per square meter and plaster and paint per square meter, the user can obtain an estimated cost for a certain length of boundary wall.
