    Default Current Cement price

    What is the current price for cement, blocks, and iron rods. I know it changes almost daily but current cost within the last week or two would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I know that a package of rebar is now around 42,000. I will see about cement and blocks. Or maybe you could check Ochoa's website? Or the website for Aguayo?

    8" block is 1,800 for 100

    6" block is 1,600 for 100

    That was the price earlier this week I am told.

    You are a baby JD, I can remember when it was less than RD$1.25 (one peso and twenty five cents).....older than dirt...yup! Just quoted bag at $255 at Bellón in Santiago.

    Tidbit: Cementos Cibao's feasibility study showed a profit at anything over 75˘ a bag...
    Of course, all the costs were appropriately lower, too....

    Thanks people. We are contemplating building a three story in Jarabacoa with a total 0f 336 sq metres. The top would be a three bedroom apartment for rental purposes (master-bedroom with an en-suite with double sinks and share bathroom for the other two bedroom) Bottom floor with two parking stalls and two bedroom, three bedroom on the middle floor (ours) with office, library...etc. The quoted price was 5,712,000 ($158,000) which works out to 17,000 pesos per sq metre. Seems a little high but ?.

    I though the basic costs for building was around RD$20,500 per m2.

    RD$17k doesn't seem so high...

    first level ( I don't have a problem with the price, but Yris is very frugal)

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5455699109/" title="second level by rsaunders2008, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5015/5455699109_9c43a71255_z.jpg" width="512" height="640" alt="second level" /></a>
    second level

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5456310916/" title="third level by rsaunders2008, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5211/5456310916_23e3c9c160_z.jpg" width="512" height="640" alt="third level" /></a>

    Yris think so too. However this includes demolition of the house that is currently there, new septic...etc, hot water, inversor, permits, taxes,... etc. I'm sure Yris will have it down at least 1,000,000 from that.
