In this paper, to designing and estimating a house, it is necessary to do surveying to find out the area for construction which is followed by planning, designing to get reinforcement details, including forecasting the cost of construction by estimation for quantities of the materials those to be known. This paper comprises the effective planning particularly in land use by deciding to make a plan for twin house by avoiding over exploitation of space. The plan of house is represented in this paper by using Auto CAD. In this paper, design part is carried as per codal provision given in IS Code 456:2000, SP-16. All the details which we got from the design is given in the report and also figures which displaying the various detailing regarding the slab, beam, footing design are presented in the report. The Accurate quantities for the concrete and brickwork can be calculated from the layout drawings (plan).For estimating, the central line method is used here for getting relatively accurate cost of construction. The structural system cost is found out and whole result of the project is presented in this paper would be useful for design professionals and quantity surveyors.
