How much will be the difference in price between buying a 8-10 marla built house or constructing on 10 marla plot. Which is better, especially for orp. Further what is the covered area for 10 marla and 1 kanal house.

Its depend on what type of materiel u used in constructing the house.
For example u want to use marble or tile?
U want to use ash wood or deodar?
U want to use pak fan or lahore fan?
U want to use local paint or branded paint?
What type of bathroom fitting u want to use?
How much u can afford for ceiling and exterior of the front elevation?
All these question are important while u are estimating the cost of the project.
Difference between built house and constructing a house is that u have a opportunity to construct according to ur choice (finishing materials) and u can save the money as well (person selling his house for seeking his profit).
Its depend, on how the area is utilize by the architect and house is triple storey or double storey.

For the benefit of beginners (like myself) i searched the net for approx covered area
Approximate covered area for single storey house
5 marla= 1125 square ft. 2250 square ft. For double story
10 marla= 1800 square ft. 3200 square ft for double story
1 kanal= 3800 & 5000 square ft to double story house.
for 10 marla house at 1700 / ft sq approx cost 3-5 mil. depending on covered area

Its depend on the material quality, u have to write down the items (company name and prices) which u wants to use then u can determine the cost of the house. There are three classes
1- extra ordinary quality work and finishing
2- average work

@UHAMMADu have asked about which is a better option buying a already built house or build it yourself
Firstly i would say it is always better to build it yourself, it will keep you relaxed that you have made it yourself and every thing in it have passed you precisely. But this is a full time job, but an interesting one.
Buying an already built house you will be always curious about what material he used, may this room be a litter wider, and the list will be going on and on.
Now you have made your mind building by your self the very next step is to gather the info as much as you can because there are loads and loads of tiny things which requires attention.
Consider a trust worthy experienced person along with you in this process who can guide you well because there is a gigantic range available in the market so what you need and what suits you better will be the right decision.
