Off-Topic Thread - To Discuss Anything and Everything that doesn't fit into an individual thread.
Let's discuss everything pertaining to Building Constructions, Real estate and some more.

can one build a four bedroom all en suite bungalow with two and half million or less? I'm doing a cost analysis and it's looking possible from my analysis. what's your views on that? i would give my analysis later after hearing some of your views. my labourers would be sourced exclusively from the north where labour is extremely cheap and the house would not include any fancy works. details later but lets hear your views first.

i would advice a small duplex since you can get more rooms from a small plot of land. i think i can design a six bedroom duplex for it but atleast two of the bedrooms won't be en suite. do you have a survey plan of the plot?

We can build for you. And we are not expensive at all.

1) If you have a plan already, you can post it or send it to my mail.
2) what is your taste? Do you want P.O.P or P.V.C.? Do u want 'German floor or not? Do you want to use parapet? Do u want stone coated tiles or Longspan? Fence? Talk to your

With my own plan of a not too elaborate building and finishing, it will cost you about 6 million.

you can have a sizeable three bedroom flat with good space to pack 3 vehicle in front of the building.

something like this can enter the plot comfortably:
three bedroom each : 12ft x 12ft
three toilet each : 4 x 8ft
kitchen : 8ft x 8ft
dining : 8ft x 8ft
living room : 16 x 14ft
store : 4 x 4ft

total floor area = 1024square feet
plot size = 2000square feet

You have to remove the cost of an engineer that would supervise the job by personally supervising it yourself from start to finish, get a very simple architectural plan ...Remove DPC(German floor), do a very simple and low gable roof, locate the building in a very good location to cut the cost of foundation, cheap labour. When you done with your analysis, Upload it let's analyse and disect

Yes O. All My Ogas. This is in relations to Building constructions and other related real estates... that will not fit in other people's individual threads, so we don't derail their threads.

No... We don't have to know what you did with your wife last night o.
We don't want to know who took your name to village Witchcraft woman o...

Only building construction related but not limited to any specific area and then some more.... o. smiley

Well not so fast.

Some of us toy with the idea of having multiple wife's.

I might need the groups advice on designing a house that will fit my future 3 wives. Something that we're all under the same roof but still provides individual privacy besides in most families the wife's are the Chief Accountants grin

OK, here's a question.

Why don't we build with treated/insulated hardwood in Nigeria? You know, a house where the exterior walls can be blocks/concrete, but the interior/room dividers would be wood? Think of the freedom and cost-reduction in running electrical wires/pipes, plumbing, and even future reconstruction/expansion.

My high school in Abia built in 1929 has residential buildings built entirely of wood, and some still look good!

An astute thought.

So I'm still debating doing my build with 6" blocks on the exterior and using steel studs on that part facing inside and the entire interior partition. We have steel studs here in Nigeria and a Nairalander uses it a lot to do fancy wall work.

The thing is the cost factor. I am working out a spreadsheet to calculate all of this. I just haven't been able to get the cost of steel studs as well as the installation though I can supervise that.
