Cost Estimates to build simple roof structure?

Recommended Posts

Any ideas how much a simple structure like in the photo would cost? The photo’s version is roughly 4m x 4m x 4m made of metal and concrete + corrugated roof.


Are these sold in kits or DIY components?

Our car port 6 x 6m cost 33k all-in back in 2015.

Friend of mine has just had a car port done very similar, maybe slightly wider with centre pillars, and that was about 40K.

I would be thinking about 35 K ( all inclusive of Labour )

I had a friend do the same, but his cost was 50-65K+ Baht, not that expensive.

Just today I got a estimate for labor only on a roughly 45 sq meter overhead attached to the house, 20,000bht labor only. He gave an all in estimate of 45,000 but I'll be paying for materials myself and only wanted the labor estimate.

Last year, 4m x 4m insulated metal deck roof awning on steel columns with gutter and down pipe was:  24K materials 9K wages.

That sounds quite high but if you know the builder and are sure of his work it may be OK

This is in Rayong, expect to pay more than deep Isaan. I had him do a small job and they worked hard to finish in 1 day. I'll get steel from his source which is cheaper than mine. He has a 3 man crew and is always on site to manage. His labor quote is same as what I had in my mind. A free standing structure would have been cheaper labor.

As the one seen on the picture, it will be about 40-50k for material and work.

Can't help with price but my Thai neighbor built a structure similar to the first photo for his cars. The roofing sheet is unbelievably thin. The first time it rained I thought Ginger Baker had moved in next door. When it is sunny there are constant pops and bangs all day as it expands and contracts.

That is due to the roofing steel used, this one 90F5A89D-84D4-461C-96E9-FBE7BD312A15.jpeg.4da184ec4790a068bda07ee0436679c7.jpeg

is now about 7 years old in this picture, while noisy when it rains, is strong enough fo me to walk on.

Tell me your price, you think all laborers work for 300 bht day. Again, tell your tale or perhaps let the grown up do the talking.
