When building a house, the first thing that comes to the mind of most people is how expensive it will cost them. In fact, some people skip the most important thing when building a house, which is to hire an architect just to save money. The quest for affordable homes is partly the reason why Hardiflex design houses are now prevalent in the Philippines.
It is common to spend over 6 digits or sometimes even 7 or more when building your house. But it is important to note that there are underlying factors that greatly affect the overall cost. An example is the municipality or city your house will be built and the going rate for labor and materials in that area.
