# How many cement bags required for 1000 sq ft house

How many cement bags required for 1000 sq ft house, hi guys in this article we know about quantity of bags of cement is required for 1000 square feet house. Actual quantity of cement calculation is based on as per design but if design is not given then cement quantity calculation is based on Thumb Rule on experience basis & how many cement bags used in construction of 1000 square feet house.

How many cement bags required for 1000 sq ft house is based on different type of criteria

1) type of structure (Load Bearing/Framed)

2) Purpose of structure (Load depends on the utility)

3) Type of grade of concrete used

4) Size height of column and length of beam (in terms of height, as requirement varies according to construction i.e. whether horizontal or vertical. )

5) Most important is foundation type(depends on soil bearing conditions) How many cement bags required for 1000 sq ft house

For general residential low rise building of ground floor house we have to calculate cement bags. We use different types of Thumb Rule for cement quantity calculation in all type of RCC structure footing, column, beam & RCC slab,brickwork, flooring & plastering.

Now taking various Thumb Rule for cement quantity calculation for 1000 square feet house

1) thumb rule for cement in rcc concrete is 0.301 cement bags/ sq ft built up area of low rise ground floor residential building

2) thumb rule for cement bags in surface ground flooring is 0.089 cement bags/ sq ft of built up area of low rise ground floor residential building.

3) thumb rule for cement bags in external wall brickwork is 1.26 cement bags/m3 of brickwork of 9 inch ( cement sand ratio 1:6)

4) thumb rule for cement bags in internal wall brick work is 1.28 cement bags/m3 of brickwork of 4.5 inch ( cement sand ratio 1:4)

5) thumb rule for cement bags for external plastering is 0.017017 cement bags/ sq ft plastering

6) thumb rule for cement bags for internal plastering is 0.0086 cement bags/ sq ft plastering

7) thumb rule for cement bags for ceiling plastering is 0.0051 cement bags/ sq ft plastering How many cement bags required for 1000 sq ft house

## How many cement bags required for 1000 square feet house ?

For the construction of residential building of ground floor we have RCC structure like footing, column, beam and slab. Taking one rough design of 1000 square feet house having different dimension of rcc structure like footing, column, beam and slab are following:

### How many cement bags required for RCC structure of 1000 square feet house

volume of rcc concrete calculation

1) footing size = 1500 mm × 1500mm × 300 mm

Length of footing = 1500 mm

Width of footing = 1500 mm

Height of footing = 300 mm

Depth of earth exacavation = 1500 mm

Concrete size in footing = 1200mm×1200mm×300mm

No of footing = 12

Wet volume of concrete in all 12 no of footing = 1.2 m × 1.2 m × 0.3 m × 12 = 5.184 m3

2) column size = 300 mm × 400 mm

No of column = 12

Height above dpc = 3000 mm

Height above rcc slab = 900 mm

Depth of earth exacavation = 1500 mm

Total height of column = 5400 mm

Wet volume of concrete for all 12 column

= 0.3 × 0.4× 5.4 × 12 = 7.776 m3

3) plinth beam size = 300mm × 300 mm

Width of beam = 300 mm

Depth of beam = 300 mm

Overall length of all beam = 220 ft = 66000 mm

Wet volume of concrete = 0.3 × 0.3 × 66 = 5.94 m3

4) door beam size for external wall = 225mm × 150 mm

Overall length for external beam = 130 ft = 39000 mm

Volume = 0.225 × 0.15 × 39 = 1.316 m3

Door beam size for internal wall = 125 mm × 150 mm

Overall length for internal beam = 90 ft = 27000 mm

Volume = 0.125 × 0.15 × 27 = 0.506 m3

Total volume of concrete = 1.316 + 0.506 = 1.822 m3

5) roof wall beam size for external wall = 225 mm × 200 mm

Overall length for external beam = 130 ft = 39000 mm

Volume = 0.225 × 0.2 × 39 × = 1.755 m3

Roof wall beam size for internal wall = 125 mm × 200 mm

Overall length for internal wall beam = 90 ft = 27000 mm

Volume = 0.125 × 0.2 × 27 × = 0.675 m3

Total volume = 1.755 + 0.675 = 2.43 m3

6) rcc roof slab = 40′ × 25’×6″

Length of slab = 40 feet

Width of slab = 25 feet

Thickness of slab = 6 inch = 0.5 feet

Volume = 40′ × 25’× 0.5′ = 500 cubic feet

1 m3 = 35.3147 cu ft

Volume = 500/35.3147 = 14.158 m3

Now Total wet volume of concrete required for 1000 square feet house

Footing = 5.18 m3

Column = 7.776 m3

Plinth beam = 5.94 m3

Door beam = 1.822 m3

Roof beam = 2.42 m3

Roof slab = 14.158 m3

Total wet volume of concrete = 37.31 m3

Dry volume of concrete = 37.31×1.54 = 57.45 m3

If we take M20 grade of concrete in which cement sand and aggregate ratio is 1:1.5:3

Cement quantity = (1/5.5)×57.45 × 1440 kg/m3

Cement weight = 15043.4 kg

1 cement bag weight = 50 kg

no of cement bags = 15043.4/50 = 301

301 no of cement bags required for RCC concrete structure footing, beam, column & slab for 1000 sq ft house of low rise building of ground floor.

### Cement bags required for brickwork of 1000 square feet house

1) cement consumption in external brick wall

External brick wall length = 2(40+25) = 130 ft

Height of brick wall = 10 feet

Height of brick wall above roof slab = 3 feet

Depth of brick wall below plinth = 2 feet

Total height = 15 feet

Area of external brick wall = 130×15 = 1950 sqft

Volume = 1950 sq ft × 9 inch = 1462.5 cu ft

Volume = 1462.5/35.3147 = 41.413 m3

Volume of brickwork = 41.413 m3

thumb rule for cement bags in external wall brickwork is 1.26 cement bags/m3 of brickwork of 9 inch ( cement sand ratio 1:6)

no of cement bags = 41.413 × 1.26 = 52 bags

2) cement consumption in internal brick wall

brick wall length = 40+25+25 = 90 ft

Height of brick wall = 10 feet

Depth of brick wall below plinth = 2 feet

Total height = 12 feet

Area of external brick wall = 90×12 = 1080 sqft

Volume = 1080 sq ft × 4.5 inch = 405 cu ft

Volume = 405/35.3147 = 11.468 m3

Volume of brickwork = 11.468 m3

thumb rule for cement bags in internal wall brickwork is 1.28 cement bags/m3 of brickwork of 4.5 inch ( cement sand ratio 1:4)

no of cement bags = 11.468 × 1.28 = 15 bags

Total no of cement bags = 52 + 15 = 67

67 no of cement bags required for brickwork of 1000 square feet house

### How many cement bags required for ground flooring of 1000 square feet house.

In ground flooring we use plain cement concrete m15 grade of concrete in which mix ratio of cement sand and aggregate is 1:2:4 and floor thickness is 6 inch ( 4 inch concrete + 2 inch platering for flooring + tile flooring)

Ground flooring concrete slab = 40′ × 25’×6″

Length of slab = 40 feet

Width of slab = 25 feet

Thickness of slab = 6 inch = 0.5 feet

Volume = 40′ × 25’× 0.5′ = 500 cubic feet

1 m3 = 35.3147 cu ft

Volume = 500/35.3147 = 14.158 m3

Wet volume = 14.158 m3

Dry volume = 14.158 × 1.54 = 21.804 m3

no of cement bags = (1/7) 21.804 × (1440/50)

no of cement bags = 89 bags

89 no of cement bags required for ground flooring of concrete, plastering of ground flooring and tile flooring of 1000 square feet house

### How many cement bags required for plastering of 1000 square feet house

1) external plastering of brick wall

Length total = 130 ft

Height = 10 ft

Area of plastering = 130 × 10 = 1300 sq ft

thumb rule for cement bags for external plastering is 0.017017 cement bags/ sq ft plastering

no of cement bags = 1300 × 0.017017 = 22 bags

2) internal plastering of brick wall

Length total = 310 ft

Height = 10 ft

Area of plastering = 310 × 10 = 3100 sq ft

thumb rule for cement bags for external plastering is 0.0086 cement bags/ sq ft plastering

no of cement bags = 3100 × 0.0086 = 27 bags

3) ceiling plastering of roof slab

Length total = 1000 ft

thumb rule for cement bags for ceiling plastering is 0.0051 cement bags/ ft plastering

no of cement bags = 1000 × 0.0051 = 5 bags

Total no of cement bags = 22 + 27 + 5 = 54

54 no of cement bags required for external wall plastering,internal wall plastering and ceiling plastering of 1000 square feet house

Now total number of cement bags required for 1000 square feet house

1) rcc concrete = 301 bags

2) Brickwork = 67 bags

3) flooring = 89 bags

4) plastering = 54 bags

Total no of cement bags = 511

511 (+ 5% and _ 5℅ shift) no of cement bags ( 301 cement bags for rcc concrete, 67 cement bags for brickwork, 89 cement bags for flooring & 54 cement bags for plastering) are required for construction of 1000 square feet house of low rise ground floor building.

Cement consumption in staircase and tank for toilet is adjusting equal to  door and window size of house
