The Real Cost Of Building A 6 Bedroom Duplex (reloaded) by spyder880(m): 12:30pm On Jun 25, 2011
Hello guys, I will be starting my house today and wants to use this thread to  track all my expenses. I dont know how much it will cost for the entire house but I will try to update this thread as often as time allow me. I want to know the total cost of building my house and get suggestions, advice from other experienced people.

First, I will reveal that I know a lot about buildings and will monitor this project myself. I will visit the site daily since I work in the area. I will source for materials myself, but my engineer will supervise the actual construction when it starts.

This house is being built in Enugu and I already have the land fenced with gate. The site is cleared. I will upload the building plans when  I collect it. Its a six bedroom affair with five ensuit, two on the floor and four upstairs. I will be uploading the house pictures as we build, I think this will be fun.

Please, let's get back to the previous thread. I hate redundancy. What spyder and some of you are doing on NL is absolute redundancy in the computer world. Let's stick to one thread because it will help a lot new to the thread understand how we all started and also make NL clean. I love the diversity in the original thread and will continue to post on that thread.If your still interested, we are now on page 101, cool cool cool cool cool

^^I couldn't agree more! I'm still trying to figure out why he felt it necessary to create 'a follow up thread for this topic'.

Too bad! How nice would it have been if the thread can continue till the end of the project. This mean we will have to start over again - or how do we make reference to posts on the former thread. It would be nice, if its cleaned up.

Anyway, I'm here and my name is Brabus. Abi, no be so! Start introduction all over again.

@ colin adua, keep your interest in buildings, and I suggest you learn to be an estate agent and find houses for rent for people, that is where I started even with another job on. I think you can make it brother.

@spyder880
Real estate business has already started, on its own. I was talking with a friend at home recently showing him these Brabus picture cos I have them since this year.

His Oga a multi-millionaire vehicle/generator spare parts importer asked me how much do land cost in Abuja I told him, “you can get as low as 450k if direct from government”. In fact, one government official offered one to me for that amount, but I don’t have that amount of money, I don’t know where to get it or who to offer the land to so I passed it over. I was very unhappy after that cos I lost a great opportunity to own land in a fast developing area of Abuja.

After I told him this he was like why didn’t you call me? So he gave me a great task to go and get lands for him to buy in Abuja, promising me commission.

This now drove me to look for somebody in FCDA/AGEIS, and now I have found a good connection there. This is how it starts, gradually.

So it has already started on its own, now I can see that your love and passion for something unconsciously drags you to them.

@Every one in the house, the first five houses I think they are still for sale, cos work is still going on there. They are in a new estate at Life Camp Abuja. I have forgotten the name of the estate. I can easily find out.

Brabus didn’t complete those, his picture, see the remaining ones.

Peace and mercy of God be to all you

Cheers!!!

I over someone say that interior decor will be the focus here, i hope am right;-

For a start, I love beds too (not because of what goes on on top of it) but because I love to sleep.

Check out this bedroom, I think the bed should be around 9 feet by 6 feet.

This is the kind of bed / bedroom I love.

please some one show case your bedrooms

Peace!!! grin

@Demain-man, unfortunately I'm not a swimming pool expert but I can give you a number to call. A rough cost is around N2m for that particular one.

@Colin, I'm more interested in facade and most people on NL are as well. That's the reason I posted those 2. The most important part of the building. Most of us live on the outside in. If not see how long it took Am Alone to put finish his roofing alone.
