If this is a 1/2 plot land, then it could be hard to fit all this requirements in. You may not have room for things like parking, suckaway, borehole or even landscape. I'm sure it can be done.
Re: Home Plans For Bungalows In Nigeria? by Gobi38: 2:58pm On Sep 04, 2008
Guys,

Can a plot of land (100 by 100 in size) accommodate a 3 or 4 bedroom bungalow with a duplex ( 4 bedroom - 3 up, 1 down) in front. Since I don't reside in Naija, I plant to construct only the bungalow for now and add the duplex whenever I plan to relocate in the future.

@ promise72 and megapro - please email me a sample sketch of the bungalow plans you guys have ( fosagie@aol.com ). Also all Nairaland Architects in the house you can also send me your stekch.

My desire design for the bungalow is a 3 bedroom self contain, separate dining area, separate living area, 1 (Room A) of the 3 master bedroom will be bigger in size and separated (for privacy reason) from the other two master bedroom (Room B and C) - meaning guests in Room B and C have to walk through the living room to get to Room A.

Thanks

I am a little surprised to see all the requests here for plans. Yet, noone is talking about compensation for the owner/designer of the floor plans. Is this normal in Nigeria? Do copyright laws not exist?

Hi promise, I salute your courage and willingness to help fellow naija since 2007. Can you kindly advice (if u have any info) on an estimate in terms of cash that will complete a four flat of 3 bedrooms in each. Will also appreciate your kind gesture if you could give a housing plan and approval cost in total. Will look forward your reply. Thanks. am on olaoluodu2001@yahoo.com
Re: Home Plans For Bungalows In Nigeria? by ralph007: 8:09am On Mar 24, 2009
the size of the land sometimes
does not determine the kind of
building that will be erected on it
as a plumber that has worked in many
site.experience has thought me that,
what one need is  a very good building
contractor or engineer that will handle
the project, so if one can get
a good and experience building contractor
you will be amazed what kind of a
structure that will be erected on a half a plot
grin cheesy

Re: Home Plans For Bungalows In Nigeria? by larez(m): 11:44am On Aug 17, 2009
Just out of curiosity and especially directed at Ajileko. How much do you think it would cost to build the attached home. It has a separate Garage at the back with a Bedroom suite complete with a walk in closet and Bathroom. The main House itself is a 3 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Baths. Huge Family room, and a breakfast eating area off the kitchen. It of course has a formal Dining Room as well, and a 1/2 Bath on the ground floor. How much should it cost to build conventionally, with a raft foundation? Thanks.

Subject: Nigerian House plan project.

This is a sample survey plan of a plot of land, total area of 1568.8m^2 (more than 1/3rd of an acre) which  a real estate builder wants to use as a model for an estate in Lagos owned by Nigerians in the Diaspora.The idea is to have a source of income from rental property when they return/retire home in addition to having a residence of their own.   

PART A.

The larger portion of the land is to be used for the personal residence consisting of
1.5-bedroom bungalow with a master bedroom en-suite in close proximity to
2.a study/home office,
3.formal living and dining room.
4.a family room with adjoining dining room,
5.a guest room en-suite,
6.two other rooms with a shared bathroom/toilet
7.Powder room or guest toilet
8.The house should have lots of windows for good cross ventilation, preferably every room should have two very large tall windows.
9.living rooms with additional 3 panel sliding doors open to a veranda/balcony.
10.The kitchen or dining area too should have an accessible veranda at the back of the house.
11.Lots of outdoor space i.e large compound for landscape and backyard vegetable gardening.

PART B.

The other portion of the plot is for a simple bungalow duplex for rental with each wing consisting of
1.3#-bedroom
2.2#-living rooms
3.Dining room
4.Kitchen   
5.2#-toilet/bath

Pls. put cost into consideration. This builder is looking for functionality and aesthetics with minimal cost in order to encourage as many people as possible without scaring them away with bogus building cost.
Forward different sketches of various floor plans and elevations (put into consideration the temperate weather in Nigeria i.e make provision for artificial ventilation  in all living spaces as much as possible)  to my e-mail address.

Re: Home Plans For Bungalows In Nigeria? by larez(m): 7:03am On Aug 20, 2009
Why are we so bent on over-building properties? 3 complete units on 1/3 of an acre? In the United States. people hardly find 1/3 of an acre suitable for a 4 Bedroom house. When will we start thinking about impervious space/green space? This is not a project that I will sign unto. Land is being overbuilt.
Re: Home Plans For Bungalows In Nigeria? by kikeige: 2:28am On Aug 21, 2009
Larez,

I am sure you are one of the "American wanna be"s" What are you talking about? What is the standard one plot size for a regular single family home in New York, that is if you've ever been there? You can ask your neighbour to pass you a box of matches from your kitchen window in most of the single family homes in many American cities.
Why can't we Nigerians stop these silly foreign ideas in comparison to our country even when they (especially America) sometimes do worse things than Nigeria?
A standard 100x50ft plot is approximately 0.11 acres, in case you don't know. That means 3 plots of such size will be 0.11 x 3 = 0.33ac .I really need to do kindergarten maths for you. I am talking of 1 unit of a bungalow duplex and another single bungalow on 0.389ac, which of course does not mean three single homes on the land, but two consisting of three units. May be you should get your facts right before acting like Mr Know it all.
Re: Home Plans For Bungalows In Nigeria? by mahal(m): 11:37am On Aug 21, 2009
@kikeige
maybe Larez is only trying to tell you that the plot would be tight going by your scope,

From your brief / scope of design compared to the size of plot,
you may not have enough greenery or any green areas left. that wouldn't be nice especially if your client is the one that loves good
outdoor spaces. bungalows usually consume a lot of landspace since they tend to develop horizontally, and for a,
5 rooms all ensuite? with a home office/ study
All rooms cross ventilated
1 living Room
1 family room
Perhaps with a Kitchen, pantry, store and laundry,
This should be a palace.

It's quite a challenging design, but the truth is, with the other scheme added, undecided

@Mahal

Thanks for the wisdom that you showed in trying to educate dude who is clueless about impervious. I have spent 25 years designing homes built all over the United States, and definitely know what it will take to fit all that stuff in. Now, instead of asking for clarification and advise, he comes talking a whole lot of mumbo jumbo. At least we know what kind of client to expect. I won't touch it with a 10 yard pole.
Re: Home Plans For Bungalows In Nigeria? by kikeige: 11:59pm On Aug 21, 2009
Mahal,
Your reply is well appreciated.You have demonstrated a good sense of team approach and good leadership role.
As for the slowpoke, Larez, you need to brush up your human relations skill,i,e if you have any at all. I have read some of your replies to postings on naira land and it is easy to conclude that you are one of the failures who sojourn in the white man's land and throw insults at those at the home front trying to do useful work.
Shame on you for spending 25yrs in oyinbo land and you are still there. I am sure by the time you come back to Nigeria with you BA (Begin Again) degree on Fantasy Island Architecture (considering all those ambiguous sketches you posted), those with more realistic ideas like Mahal et al will be available to give you a preliminary coaching on pragmatic designs with focus on the peoples needs and affordability.
I wonder if you have been able to get any partner for your Wonderland Project. Siddon for obodo land dey blow hot and cold.Nah there you go grow old doing boy boy for your grand children.Yeye man. Abeg, carry go.Commot for road make we see better person.

Mahal, pls. kindly suggest something in the alternative for the size of land, that will still be able to meet the demand of rental duplex 3-bedroom bungalow and maybe 4-bedroom personal residence. I doff my cap for you.
Re: Home Plans For Bungalows In Nigeria? by saridonp2: 12:21am On Aug 22, 2009
Is it correct that roofing a 3 bedroom bungallow with a standard living room,double toilet and a small office will cost 970knaira?I will be glad if you can share your idea with me on this,
Re: Home Plans For Bungalows In Nigeria? by larez(m): 2:06am On Aug 22, 2009
And the fool assumes anyone will want to touch his project shocked, Keep dreaming. Thank God that even hungry Architects have dignity. What a badly bred piece of crap.
Re: Home Plans For Bungalows In Nigeria? by ajileko: 6:43am On Aug 22, 2009
Hey Lanre make you cool down, we got your point but in Nigeria unlike Atlanta, we maximize the land when we build. No waste.

And that still doesn't make it right. Lack of green space = Smog and bad health for people around the area. Knowing better demands that you attempt to raise awareness to better your society. And why haven't you given me a price yet on the house? tongue

A 200 ft by 100ft perfect rectangular plot would be very suitable, if it's bigger than that, fine.
Re: Home Plans For Bungalows In Nigeria? by mahal(m): 4:22pm On Aug 22, 2009
Bungalows are quite interesting projects, have done loads of them,
however, land constraints tends to take away freedom of flair, expression and flexibility.
some illustrations of recent and old one's i ve done, (3d illustraions only)
