Many people dream of owning their own bungalow. Such a house has a representative effect and offers a lot of comfort, especially in old age. What does it cost to make this dream come true?
Price advantages of the bungalow
A bungalow offers some price advantages. Although it is a spacious building with a representative character, the construction is rather cheaper than a multi-storey single-family house with similar equipment.

The bungalow prices are lower because the statics are comparatively simple. The foundation walls do not have to be particularly heavy, and there are no expensive stairwells.
A gravel flat roof is the cheapest way to close the bungalow at the top. A flat hip, gable roof is more expensive, but looks more elegant. Alternatively, you can also green your flat roof, but this increases the weight load significantly.
However, a bungalow usually requires a larger plot of land than a multi-story house. In this way, part of the cost advantage can be lost again.
Bungalows have a large external area in relation to the volume and therefore cool down faster. Builders can prevent increased energy requirements through effective thermal insulation!
Cost factors when building a bungalow
First of all, the size of the bungalow is of course decisive for the price: the floor space and number of rooms are variable cost factors that the client can influence himself.
The shape and construction also have an impact on the construction costs. A rectangular building is cheaper than an angular house. Solid stone walls cost more than precast concrete (€ 15.74 on Amazon *) .
An individually planned home is naturally more expensive than a prefabricated house "off the shelf". Extras also cost more: a cellar or partial cellar, a special roof shape or the energetic construction as a passive house increase the price.
The prices are in this range
- lowest price group: simply designed prefabricated bungalows between 70.000 and 120.000 EUR from the upper edge of the base plate.
- Middle price group: prefabricated house with a few extras or simple, individually planned solid house: 120.000 to 200.000 EUR
- Upper price group: individually planned luxury bungalows from 200.000 EUR
