In this post we explain the basic process and costs of building a house in Barcelona and Catalonia.
In case you still don’t know us, let us introduce ourselves.
We are ERA architects, one of the young and creative architecture studios in Barcelona.
You should know that there are many construction systems that affect time and price when making a house.
In the previous post ‘Timing process of building a house in Barcelona?’ we explained the process of building a house with the most common system in Spain during the last years. In this following post, we will tell you how much it costs to make a home based on the same system.
How much it costs to build a house in Barcelona?
In our architecture firm ERA architects we have estimated the costs for a medium-low quality house around 200m2, close to Barcelona, on a flat site without rocks with an easy site access ():

Also mind that prices should be taken carefully since projects have different contexts and client demands, also materials have diverse qualities and prices also vary trough time and market.

You may check out our online house editor CasaAPP to see prices and types of prefabricated, wood and passive houses. Or download house editor APP in Google Play (only for Android tablets for now, sorry!).
(the WEB editor takes 3 minutes to load. You may not be able to load if you don’t have a powerful computer: so sorry, we are working to improve the APP)
