info for cost to build

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Problems only exist if you do not solve them. A roof over the top of a container will stop the sun reaching the container, and a container that is insulated, then lined on the inside will stop the heat on the walls. And if you want to go the full hog , double glaze the windows and install air-con.

As for the rust problem ? Why do they make shipping containers from steel ? when all their life they are exposed to sea salt water and sit on docks where they are offloaded exposed to salt laden air ?

Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Do you need to be resident or married to a Kymer to build a house?
Yes. If you want to own the hard title. There are places offering land for rent on 10 year fixed rates etc for those that are barang couples/ singles.
So how much are we talking here for hard title?

So how much is the rent gonna be p/a. How much does the 'permission' actually cost, if it's an 'extra'?
Hard titles can be ridiculously cheap compared to what they are taking off foreigners in rent let alone hard title. EG a Khmer I know got a 20 x 50m plot for $1000 hard title. In the very near vicinity, I was renting slightly smaller for 1440 pa fixed for 10 years.

You are confuusing the cost to get a hard title with the cost of the land.

To add to the above.

Today I just paid $9k for a block of land that does not even have soft (sangkat) title. Instead it has commune registration. Cost to get soft title is $500. Later to get hard title will probably cost $1000.

BTW. 2 hours after buying it we were offered $12k for it.
