Before building your house, you need to consider some important factors. One of the most important factors is the location of the lot. Is it near the center like hospital, market, school, and the highway? Is your lot located in a place where it is usually flooded? Think about it.
If the place is usually flooded and you can no longer buy another lot or you can’t sell the lot to another person, you don’t have a choice but to build your house in the lot. Worry not! There is a remedy to a flood-prone lot. Build an elevated house to avoid the risks of being flooded like in this farm house here below.
This house is sitting on a flood-prone lot that is why the owners built it with elevation. You can decide how high the elevation of your house is from the ground. To do that, you need to fill up the lot with land to elevate it or to build the house higher than the ground by putting shorts posts like you see in the photo above. In some other ways, you can elevate the whole house and put stairs. One meter elevation is good enough.
This is the living room. Because it is a farm house, it is mostly built with wood which gives a traditional and rural look to the house. It is cool and breezy. Living in this house is an escape from the noisy city life.
So, how much would it cost to build this three-bedroom farm house? With the materials used, building this house would cost around US$30,000-40,000. If built with concrete and steel, it would cost around US$50,000. Like we always tell those who are asking about the budget for building a house, the cost actually depends on the materials used and the kind of finishing and furnishing that are used.
