Am not buying any land and can two plot of land be enough for it? and still have some space.2 plots should be enough. Mine is a little over 2 plots, and it has 3 bedroom main building, BQ at the back, space for parking and enough open space.

Never see any failure while you are into it. Just see yourself finishing it with all amount hope plus that money so far land is on ground.

It will go a long way, and it depend on funishing. if the area is not a swamp like lagos. the with cheap labour and if have good people that will supervise it

Building in the village is good but should done at your own pace.
As for 1.3m doing the job, I do not think its possible. I am currently doing a 3 bedroom in Ikorodu which I started in April and by MAY I had already spent close to have a mil.
The foundation is on dry level ground and I decided after the foundation to develop only the KITCHEN, SITTING ROOM, DINING AND VISITOR'S TOILET (all of which are at the front) to a complete finish including roofing b4 proceeding with the rest as man no know wetin go happen tomorrow. So far to complete the front alone with borehole, tiles and sceptic will cost another 1.3m based on rough estimates.
So for a standard appreciable 3 bedroom, 1.3m can go a long way but cannot finish the project.
PS: Direct labour was used in my case and I sourced the materials myself.

This is my second project in this area and its no joke when you are building especially if you are on an average paid employment but I will advise u start now with what u have and I assure u that u will be amazed how quickly u will realise the project (all things being equal).

1.3, Yes you will be able to build a Guard House with Dog House
|Re: Can 1.3 Million Naira Build 3 Bed Room Flat? by orangemen: 5:03pm On Sep 20, 2010|
It can, depending on your taste and the kind of 3 bed room flat u have in mind.
u have my vote.
uncle, the key word here is taste. many ppl in our villages can build 6 bedrooms with that amount. listen, organise ppl to rake local sand for u at the lowest rate, family labour can protect u from any form of paid labour as long as u organise food and drinks. u can cut woods from your family trees and use the cheapest form of roofing sheets. windows and doors from that carpenter near your market square. most of the houses in our villages were made with lesser amounts but the finishing of a building is where the taste lies.
PLEASE NOTE : U MUST BE THERE FOR THIS TO HAPPEN, UNCLES, AUNTIES, BROTHERS, SISTERS, AND PAPA'S FRIENDS WILL GIVE HEART ATTACK IF U WANT THEM TO DO THIS FOR U.
i can tell u to budget N2m for tiles, N1m for long span roofing sheets, N1m for security doors, 500k for alumaco windows, toilet and kicthen with wardrobe will cost u another N1m, painting will be like 300k then your protectors etc will be like 300k.

are you not scared of snakes in that bush?
|Re: Can 1.3 Million Naira Build 3 Bed Room Flat? by Jarus(m): 6:16pm On Sep 20, 2010|
sandee575:Where is there no snake?
Actually, it's a new developing area. There are a few completed houses and equally in-progress houses around there not captured by the pic.
|Re: Can 1.3 Million Naira Build 3 Bed Room Flat? by Yorisb: 6:23pm On Sep 20, 2010|
1.3 will never never never be enough for it no matter the location/cheap labour.
Just the German flooring/rods - You will have spent almost all the cash.

If anyone had told us how much it would have cost to build our house when we first started, we would have run a mile, bought ourselves a new car, buried our heads in the sand & fooled ourselves by saying that when the time comes we will buy a house in Lekki with our retirment money
So in a way it is good that we didnt have a clue of how much it will cost because we would have just run away. I also thank God for good mentors we had around us.
But I tell you something, when that first block goes down, you will try everything possible to complete that house. Now I know why people call it project.
@poster, It will cost you a lot more than 1.3 million to build that house. Our POP ceiling & colums alone was nearing that figure, but brother dont let it discourage you. You will find that your spending pattern will change and every spare penny will go on that property & you will even go without sometimes but brother beleive me, its worth it especially when like Jarus you begin to see the changes in the property as it gets bigger.
Also remember that the building material that you priced for N100 in the market today will be N200 next month. So Brother do not fear. It is well.
|Re: Can 1.3 Million Naira Build 3 Bed Room Flat? by jot01(m): 7:11pm On Sep 20, 2010|
I think with 1.3m, the poster will be close to completing his Project.
There is one thing in building we need to remember is Labour and materials.
You cannot compare the price of Cement in Lagos to his village and ofcourse prices of blocks.
Also Labour will be very very cheap there, So he can start the project with 1.3 and see where it gets too.
Hope this help a little Bit.

Needless to say, yours will become No. 1 JARUS STREET, Okokomaikolokirani, Kwara State.
|Re: Can 1.3 Million Naira Build 3 Bed Room Flat? by Jarus(m): 7:43pm On Sep 20, 2010|
@ poster, let me give you another clue:
Dig your soak-aways as early as the project begins, then the sands dug out from them can be used in filling while doing the foundation. This reduces the number of lorries of sands you will need to be at foundation stage. You can see the ditch in front of the BQ in my picture 2. The sands dug out from there was used to partly fill the main building foundation. My project supervisor did that idea.
Also, like somebody mentioned, if you are doing it from Lagos, make sure the person in charge in your village is very trustworthy and has time to supervise. Let them account for every kobo spent. 18 bags of cement did a disappearing act in my case, but my supervisor was able to detect. Some workmen connived and played smart.

1.3million ke. thats too small
|Re: Can 1.3 Million Naira Build 3 Bed Room Flat? by yemi313: 11:38pm On Sep 20, 2010|
Thats a low budget and it wont get very far,
This cost 2.5 and notice that everything is so moderate and no-flash. Almost an "F" quality home.
Its a project I dont like attributing with my company, but well, it was built for a colleague.
And a home it is, simple, yet you should note that some vital things are lacking, such as:
1. if a structure like this was to be ever built in a low-terrain where water could easily seep into the building, or water lodged area, the owner would be in loads of trouble. good thing is, this particular one is built on a hilly land, very high and free from this kind of kasala. I hope your plot is a highland.
2. Fencing your plot is very essential. Its security. Its exclusivity. Its keeping trouble away. Its privacy. Its cool!
3. And using a slate for your roof makes it easier for thieves to burgle you. They cant do that with an aluminum which is impossible to pop or uncoil.
And hey, did you notice theres no security on the entire property like buglary proof or net or welded railing infront of the door.
So, its not just about "saving cost" but also saving yourself from further contigencies. It takes a good thinker to screw with properties that are poorly planned, developed, and built. A property like this is in the open and could be easily sold to someone else by those daredevil omo-oniles or insane agents and 419 dudes.
Though I understand time is crazy, sometimes, the risk is worth it. If I have a property like this, I would happily jump in, not with the poo my landlord is putting me thru with yearly increment of rent.
Go for it brother. God be with you!!!!

All this info are really helping me here. . . . .i love it
|Re: Can 1.3 Million Naira Build 3 Bed Room Flat? by lekanbar(m): 10:56am On Sep 21, 2010|
Depends on the kind of house in question, maybe a house with no roof or foundation, that will definitely do, lol
|Re: Can 1.3 Million Naira Build 3 Bed Room Flat? by Demain_man: 11:46am On Sep 21, 2010|
A house with the dimensions you have here 35metres x 40 metres must be very big.
I am currently roofing my duplex in the village and the dimensions in the drawing I have are
17,700 x 9,300 which I assume is in millimetres.
this is approx 18 metres x 10 metres
To think that I even think that the house is too big!
My house is definately bigger than the one in the picture by a lot!!
