Building a one bedroom house in Jamaica, what is the cost?

I answered the question (below): What is the cost of building a one bedroom house in Jamaica? But I am going to solicit your input as well?

I know that, on the ground, the prices vary a lot. For those who have already build, what price (per square feet) did you pay? I am trying to see something here.

By the way, this was the question...

Do you have an idea how much material is needed to build a one bedroom house with bathroom and kitchen? Is it possible for 2 million (JMD) to do it?

ANSWER: by Wellesley

Hey there, thanks for asking!

In addition to the facilities you require, I am thinking that you'll also need to state dimesions you are expecting for each of those rooms, or areas. Most builders will not want to assume and so they'll need that from you as well. In other words, how big (or small) you need the areas.

That said, the average cost to build here in Jamaica is 90 USD per square feet. You can read more on that here.

By the way, for the record, I am not a building expert but what I am thankful of having are people and connections on almost any Jamaican topic or issue, and in some cases, I've been rubbing shoulders long enough to get an idea of those areas of expertise.

And in your case, I think I have a perfect recommendation!
