    The purpose, is I am thinking of building something with the wife for her mum and dad.

    We have some land in Butuan City approx 3000sq mtr and 2 hectares overlooking lake mainit.

    I’ve decided on the latter as when We come to retirement age the city will just be too hectic.

    The lands covered in falcata’ s 5 yrs old. But we’ll cut some down to make way for a property.

    My thoughts at this minute are a 4 bed single story.

    Any input from people who have done self builds would be much appreciated, highs and low points are welcome.

    Good intentions, but where are you, where is your wife, and where are her parents living now?

    Who legally owns the land?

    Why should you build a four-bedroom ranch for your wife's Mum and Dad?

    We have constructed quite a lot of property here.
    Price of construction per Sqr meter can vary a lot depending if you manage the project yourself or hand it all over to a local contractor.
    Prices can range from 12K to 35K (Peso) per Sqr mtr.

    I wouldn't consider having anything above the size of a garden shed built here, unless I was able to personally 'supervise'. I'm assuming you don't already have ulcers ?

    I would also recommend that you take a look at the proposed construction site during the rainy season... as regards the likelihood (or otherwise) of flooding.

    The site already has a wooden house on it that’s not had any flooding issues over the last 5 yrs since we owned the land and it was there prior to that.

    The problem here Micheal and with most of the small/cheap houses with cheap roof design etc is that the inside produces heat much like a solar oven...You could probably roast a chicken in the livingroom around mid day.

    Below is how to build an earthquake proof solid concrete structure..(No CHB`s)45 Sq Mtrs for around 10.000 UK Pounds.
    Almost the same method we used to build our latest bungalow projects...Except the roof truss design!
    Sorry,Not in English.
