One could wonder how much it could cost him or her to start building a house from scratch. Well, in this article we will take a look at how much it would cost to build this one room house, starting from scratch.
This is a simple one room house and would not require much to build.

500 bricks: R3 750 (R7.50 each)
20 cements: R1 400 (R70 each)
6 roof sheets: R690 (R115 each)
9 planks: R855 (R95 each)
