[b]1. Foundation: (Foundation layout, rough carpentry for columns/pillars, iron casting, filling, 4 coach pvc, german floor, and foundational plumbing and electrical pipe layout for conduit)

1 tonne of 12mm steel, #110,000
100 bags of cement, @ #1800 per 1 = #180,000
1,000 pcs of 9x9 blocks @ 150 per 1 = #150,000
5 dozens of rings and binding wires = #5,000
1x12 abara wood 30 pieces @ #800 per 1 = #24,000
20 pieces of 10x12 @ 650 per 1 = #13,000
clearing and digging of new foundation #250,000
1 trucks of 20 tonnes gravel @ #50,000 per 1 = #50,000 (for foundation casting)
4 trucks of sharp sand @ #20,000 per 1 = #80,000
2 trucks of dagbolu sand @ #20,000 per 1 = #40,000
10 trucks of red/white mixed fillings #15,000 = #150,000 (Filling will be used for the pvc. usually, red and white filling when mixed becomes stone hard when touched by water, )


2. Erection: (Mansory works, rooms partioning, wall extension, pillars reinforcement, lintels, window & doors outlines, general flooring, )

3,000 pcs of blocks of 9x9 @ #150 per 1 = #450,000
10 trucks of sharp sand @ #20,000 per 1 = #140,000
3 trucks of dagbolu sand @ #20,000 per 1 = #60,000
110 bags of cement @ #1800 per 1 = #198,000
6 trucks of gravel @ (for columns) and lintels, and window fenestration design, and entire flooring @ #50,000 per 1 = #300,000

PS: (we wont buy anywood, as we will re-use the abara used for the foundation for the pillar, column, lintel, etc. Abara can be used for 2 to 3 building projects if carefully preserved)

3. Roofing & Finishing:
(General carpentry: Rough carpentry for Roofing, and smooth carpentry for furniture works: cupboards, wardrobes, doors, POP, window nets. Plastering, utilities works: electrical, plumbing: toilet sinks, kitchnette, tiling, smooth carpentry ie furniture works, doors, windows, kitechnette, electrical poles, sewage, landscaping, painting, etc)

60 bags of cement for @ 1800 per 1 = #108,000
4 trucks of dagbolu sand @ #20,000 per 1 = #80,000
1 trucks of sharp sand @ #20,000 per one = #20,000
General carpentry work (roofing, furnitures, etc) = #1,700,000
General utilites (tiling, electrical, plumbing, digging well, pumping machine, geepee tank, painting etc) = #1,300,000

I wont charge alot. You are building moderately, and the land is perfect. Pay me #500,000 for S&A (Supervision & Administration) and Collateral.
Total = #5,932,000 Currently a happy builder for 2 nlanders, and no one is complaining or displeased. Will be my pleasure to add you. Call or email me: adetund19@yahoo.com

I think the poster requested for a 4/5 bedrooms duplex. I did not see the pricing for plastering and soft sand. Also tell me what is dagbolu sand ?  You also mentioned that you've build for 2 nairaland members and that they are very happy. Can you disclose the members for reference purpose.

Ibogurrl. started her project in jan, 5 bedroom duplex and 2 units of 2 bedroom BQ. i signed the necessary papers like I usually do, job must finish before the end of July and not a single day extra.
Another nlander based in London, I have his phone number and never asked for his ID, I think I will start asking right now. I have worked and built for 2 others last year, will try and ask for the IDs.
And I have helped 2 current nlanders, meet and straightened their greedy contractors. Both are: larimo and kiki2000
Re: Cost Of Building A 4/5 Bedroom Duplex From Fuondation Level by Nobody: 5:38pm On Feb 28, 2010

@ajileko

dagbolu: plastering sand. usually mixed with sharp sand to create thickness and softness. helps makes masonry work a lot more cleaner and less rough.
Re: Cost Of Building A 4/5 Bedroom Duplex From Fuondation Level by Nobody: 5:49pm On Feb 28, 2010
@larrygold

you are very welcome sir. please send me a copy of the plan once its ready. it will help get you a precise estimate that wont necessitate extra expenses later. best of luck with getting your dream home.

Re: Cost Of Building A 4/5 Bedroom Duplex From Fuondation Level by JohnKester: 8:06pm On Apr 11, 2010
I am planning to commence the construction of a duplex in Rivers State.

I have a little challenge with sourcing the materials I want to use which is HYDRAFORM INTERLOCKING DRY STACKING BLOCKS. I currently live in a house built with Hydraform and after this experience it will be extremely difficult to live in a regular cement block house because of the heat emitting characteristic of cement block which hydraform does not have, being made from laterite (red mud) soil.

Does anyone know where I can source the hydraform in Rivers State.

Thanks for the help.
Re: Cost Of Building A 4/5 Bedroom Duplex From Fuondation Level by Nobody: 11:33pm On Apr 11, 2010
[b]I am not sure why you want to use an earth-quake resistant block for your home in Nigeria sir. Of course the Hydra-form blocks are far better and stronger than our normal hollow blocks here but most are used basically in countries like South Africa, the middle east, India, and California in the US. But under engineering, they serve a totally different purpose and not a MUST when building in an earthquake free zone like Nigeria.
Even in Dubai where they have low magnitude earthquakes once a while, the hollow blocks we use in Nigeria are highly used, though they tend to bury a shocking large amount of steel and concrete deep into the ground for an ordinary foundation, and their home foundations are usually subcontracted to road builders. I mean, they spend fortunes on reinforced concretization to beat the earthquake, and they've prevailed.
Hydra-form blocks are good blocks to use, but totally a waste of money sir. Whoever is selling it to you doesnt really understand that its only quality is just thermal and tremor resistance. Besides that, its just an ordinary block. Best of luck in finding a Lebanese or Indian construction company that will set that up for you.[/b]

Thanks for the response.

The idea is not being sold to me but something I want to do. I said I currently live an hydraform built house. Actually hydraform company has a different material for construction of earthquake resistant houses and that is not what I am referring to. In terms of cost, it is actually cheaper to built with hydraform than conventional blocks. In addition, in our own climate which is very hot, hydraform becomes the better material to use. If you have ever been inside a mud house in a hot afternoon, you will understand what I am saying. In the same way, if you sleep in cement block house after a very hot day, and there is no light for you to run your fan or airconditioner, you will value hydraform if you have the opportunity to sleep in one under the same circumstances.

I still need information on the possible sources.

Thanks once again for your response.
