Building a house is a dream of many and you must be pretty close to turning your dream into reality. If you are looking for the 10 marla house construction cost in Pakistan 2023, it is the right place. We are here with a detailed blog to give you an estimate of how much you will have to spend to build your dream house. 

Covered Area

The constructed area of the house is called a covered area. If you are building a double-story house, the area covered on the ground floor as well as the first floor will be combined (added) to get the total covered area.


1 marla is equal to around 272.251 square feet (sq. ft.). The total ground area of a 10 Marla house is nearly 2722.51 sq. ft. For a double-storey house, you can double it which becomes around 5445 sq. ft. 

Different housing societies have different laws in which you have to leave specific areas (front, side, back, etc.) open / uncovered. So, we have chosen 3375 sq. ft. as the total covered area for our double story 10 Marla house to cover the requirement of most housing societies. This house has 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, 2 living rooms, and 1 drawing Room.


Here, we will show you the estimated costs (rounded off) that can vary depending on various factors like inflation, material quality, brand, covered area, and many more. The covered area (exact) of your house will depend on various factors like spaces you want to leave, housing society laws, design, garage size, etc.
