However veneer costs start from Rs 80 and you will generally find good ones in the range of Rs 150-300 per SFT. Also good commercial ply...

I suggest you go with column based construction as it will enable you to do future extensions/modifications to the structure.

Re: To Construct or Not

All, I am done with my vitrified tile flooring and I have some excess quantity of around 400 SFT left with me.
