    Just want to know estimate quo for renovation house:
    a) Corner lot 22’x75′ (additional land area 20′)
    b) Reno on 1st floor only extend width 10′ (back already full extend ground floor only)
    c) 1st floor reno include 2 balcony.

    Appreciate if you could give rough figure.

    1. Hello! Based on your details, you are probably looking at a starting price of RM30,000.

      The general rates for main items are:

      1. Structure and wall and roof tile only: RM 80 to RM 120 per sqft.
      2. Supply 1×2 tile & install : RM 10 to RM 20 per sqft
      3. Plumbing work : RM 250 per point (not including supply water tap)
      4. Supply & install wood door, aluminium window : RM 20 to RM 50 per sqft, depending on final material

      So, if we assume your extension is 8ft x 20ft, one storey:

      1. Structure and wall and roof tile: 8 x 20 x RM 100 = RM 16000
      2. Floor tile (80sqft) & 4 side full wall tile (560sqft) = (80 + 560) x RM 10 = RM 6400
      3. Plumbing work = 3 sets x RM 250 = RM 750
      4. Supply 1 set 3×7 wood door and 1 set 4×6 window = (21 + 24) x RM 25 = RM 1125

      TOTAL around RM30,000

      Of course, many things can be upgraded. And many items have not been included such as plaster ceiling, wiring, painting, furnishing and appliances, etc. We also did not include price of submission to local council, which could come up to RM4000. This was covered in a separate article:
