5 Marla House Construction in Pakistan: Costing and Important Details

Building a 5 Marla House requires proper planning for construction. Though many gated communities offer developed houses with various amenities, they are not tailor-made. Despite this, people prefer to build a home according to their preferences and convenience.

In Pakistan, 5 Marla plots and houses are in high demand as they are affordable and suitable for families. Instead of buying an already-constructed home, building it on your own is a good option. With proper budgeting and planning, you can save a significant amount and build a home of your choice.

5 Marla Covered Area

The total covered area of 5 Marla house double-storey is 2,000 sq. ft. Hence, the covered area for the first and second floors is 875 per sq. ft. each. The 5 Marla house plan includes three bedrooms, a TV lounge, 3 attached bathrooms, 2 kitchens, and mumty.

Steps Included in 5 Marla House Construction

If you are planning 5 Marla house construction in Pakistan, you must know the current market dynamics, material costs, labor rate, and all other necessary steps. 5 Marla home construction consists of 2 parts i.e. grey structure and finishing. You need to pay attention to every little thing during construction.

Let’s discuss everything in detail, including the necessary steps and 5 Marla house construction cost in Pakistan.

Plot Demarcation

Plot demarcation refers to the fixing boundaries of your plot before construction. The surveyors of the society mark the four corners of the plot and issue a demarcation certificate. In this process, you will know where your plot lies. According to their criteria, the team marks the point from certain feet away from the road. After the first point is marked, the other 4 points corners are marked accordingly. These points are marked with steel rods.

Excavation & Layout

Plot excavation is a starting point when building the foundation of your home. The whole structure of the home is built upon it. You must have working drawings to start the excavation and layout process. Maybe, some parts of the plots will not be excavated. Also, the depth and dimensions of the excavation vary from 3 feet to 5 feet, mentioned in the working drawing issued by your architecture. The excavators dig the approved parts of the ground. The bottom layer must be compacted and there must not be any soft place. 5 Marla house excavation usually takes 3 to 4 days.

Underground Termite Proofing

After the completion of the excavation, the next important step before starting the construction is anti-termite treatment. If left unchecked, the termites can cause significant damage to your home’s foundation. That is why underground termite proofing is essential. This is done after the excavation process is completed. Many companies are offering termite spray services at multiple rates. The approximate anti-termite treatment cost in Pakistan for 5 Marla houses is around 25,000 PKR.

Base Filling

Base filling of the plot is essential with suitable and high-quality sand. This plays a vital role in making your home base or foundation. Because of this, you need to choose the right river sand. In Pakistan, special river sand is used for plot base filling called ghassu. Ghassu is a 70% sand and 30% clay mixture important for all construction projects.

Ravi sand is the most effective because of its aggregate material; however you can also use Chenab sand or coastal beach sand. For the filling, you should only use Kassu and not use soil. This is because Kassu or sand compacts very well. Soil is not appropriate for filling that can damage the house foundation or walls in the future. You need almost 3300 Cubic Feet Kassu for 5 Marla house filling.

Foundation Construction

After the completion of base filling, the foundation work starts. This is an important phase during your home construction. Hence, the laborers start working on the foundation with blocks and bricks. Usually, bricks are used for foundation construction; however, in some parts of Pakistan, blocks are also used.

Red clay bricks are a good choice as they come with great strength. However, Fly Ash Bricks are among the new bricks made using new concrete techniques. These bricks are in high demand in many areas of Pakistan, especially Punjab. The bricks are used to make house foundations till the DPC level, where all the parts of the houses are marked. Your whole house structure is based on the foundation thus; it provides stability to a home.

Grey Structure Construction

A house’s grey structure is constructed using bricks, cement, sand, bajri, safety grills, Ghassu, and other materials. Though, you need basic construction items to make a grey structure. Wiring, sanitary work, plumbing, and the main gate are also included in a grey structure. This is an important and main phase of house construction that requires proper planning and attention to every detail. In a grey structure, the following steps are included:

  • Brick walls construction, as mentioned in the drawing
  • A complete roofing system
  • Concrete/Cement wall plaster
  • Window Shades
  • All Water Tanks
  • Boundary Wall
  • Complete underground electrification (except lights & switches)
  • Complete sewerage system installation
  • Safety Grills
  • Main Gate

RCC Lintel

RCC slab casting of 5 Marla houses is the main step during the construction. The lintel makes the overall structure of the house strong. The width of the lintel is the same as the walls’ width. Hence, many types of lintels exist, such as timber, stone, brick, and steel. Timber lintels are not very durable and are used in hilly areas. Stone lintel is also not reliable because of its weak tensile nature.

Bricks lintel is also fine but the Steel Lintel is highly recommended as it is strong, durable, and advanced. Currently, steel lintel is most commonly used as it fulfills all the safety standards of a roofing system. Before lintel, the shuttering work is done. Shuttering is of two types, i.e. wooden and steel. Hence, steel shuttering is recommended because of its strength and reliability.

You need high-quality steel bars for 5 Marla RCC lintel (Grade 60 or Grade 40). The quantity of steel you require ranges from 1300 kg to 1400 kg. Moreover, you need 80 to 50 cement bags, 1 trolley of Coarse sand, 400 to 425 Cubic Feet crush, and 10 kg binding wire. Of course, you need extra labor and machinery for the lintel, including a mixer machine, lift, and more.

Wiring, Gas Piping & Plumbing Work

The plumbing work includes the underground installation of a sewerage system, water connections, pipelines, and more. This should be done according to new plumbing standards to avoid any technical issues in the future. For house plumbing, electric wiring, and gas piping, the rough estimate is Rs.1,340,000. In this phase, all the sanitary work is done in the bathrooms, kitchen, laundry, and other parts.

The gas pipeline installation and connections are also included in the plumbing work. The underground plumbing and wiring are completed before the plaster. The gas and water pipes conduit is made in a ¾ to 2 diameter range. However, a 2” to 6” diameter range is appropriate for the sewerage system.

Concrete Plaster

For the exterior grey finishing, plaster is the most important phase. This is done with cement that covers the brick walls and gives them a smooth and plain look. Cement plaster made of sand, Portland cement, and water gives masonry exteriors and interiors a high-end finish. Not only the plaster gives the structure a more polished appearance, but it also protects the surfaces.

All home parts are plastered, including ceiling plaster, internal walls plaster, external walls, boundary wall plaster, etc. Usually, the single plaster coat is enough; however, the thickness of the layer should not be less them 12mm to 15mm. A maximum of 100 to 105 bags are used for plastering a 5 Marla house in Pakistan. Hence, you require 550 cubic feet of cement that must be thick.

According to Rs.1065 per bag rate, the 5 Marla home plaster cost in Pakistan would be Rs.111,300. However, the rate can vary on the cement company you choose. This excludes the labor cost. The plaster makes the surfaces more strong and more durable. However, you should keep checking with the balancing scale that the plater layer is equal and perfectly balanced; otherwise, this can cause a problem during the finishing process or painting.

Finishing

After the completion of the grey structure, here comes the finishing task. This includes the decoration and finishing of your house according to your preferences. There are so many choices available to make your home incredible. Hence, the finishing cost of 5 Marla houses is based on the material selection, quality, and many other aspects. The expensive, as well as standard finishing options are available. The choice is solely based on your budget and taste. The finishing work includes painting, tiling, ceiling, wooden work, grills, and more.
