Window Shopping: Fence & Gate


About a month ago, I was talking to a few people about the cost of putting up a fence and I mentioned to them that we would be spending over Php 300,000 just for three walls, a gate, and the carport without the roof. They then started laughing and told me that was way too high and that it should only cost us around Php 275,000 inclusive of the roof.

I felt bad at that point and they took pity on me by giving me a list of contractors who have done work for other residents in the village. So with renewed optimism, I asked them for quote. But to ensure the suppliers were all on the same footing, I sent them a "fence kit" containing the carport plan, staking layout and the specifications that Maricel from Rabacon sent to me last year (which you can read here) but without the rates:

Thanks for sharing. This gives me an idea of how much will I need to spend for the walls and gates. Ang mahal pala, 2012 pa yan, 2014 na ngayon.

Hi Nicole,

thanks for sharing this post. Grabe, ive been trying to look for some estimates, to at least get a rough idea before i go formally inquire to a proper contractor. And luckily enough, it seems like we're on the same area pa.lol That's under avida right. But disappointingly.. i realized na mahal pala mgpafirewall. =( yikes. I checked out your other post, question po, un 80k, that's just for the garage floor cement, or kasama na un one firewall on the left side? Or is that your neighbor's firewall?

Nicole said...

Hi Eva,

Yup, it's Avida and yes mahal ang cemento =) The 80k is just for garage floor as the wall belongs to the neighbor.

Thanks Nicole, been reading more and more posts, nakakaaddict ang blog mo. =) Plus, sobrang helpful talaga. im near my turnover stage, and initially i was just planning to go through it by myself. I mean the inspection etc.. since i think its partly because im too confident with them in terms of quality, saying its under ayala, so they probably have a high standard when approving stuff. But after reading your experience and all the CRAZY issues you had to go through, i realized that's a big no no.. I probably need to have some professional with me when i go through the checking and before i sign any papers.. Let's just say, hindi ako mapanuring tao.lol I just take a glance at stuff and say ok. but anyway, i just really want to say thanks for being so generous in sharing your step by step experience (even expenses) while getting everything done. Thank you and more power to your blog. =)
