To get water will only take him some feet's to get, just at the front.

We already dig borehole but the area is full of some pilfere, you won't believe they can to cut the pipe believing there is machine inside angry.
We just mounting perimeter fence now. Thank you sir
mufutau55:


Ah! Ok. If the distance to fetch the water is not that far, the he should surely do it. But may be he does not want anything to hold-up his work or add any un-necessary hardship to his daily work.
But still advise your brother about borehole, so he can save some money. Thank you.

To get water on our site its just some feet's away(very close)
EgunMogaji2:


It's on a case by case basis.

I am about six plots away from a river (uphill) and my current bricklayer has never brought up the issue of water. I noticed that it is slowing them down so I will be buying a gasoline powered pump to get water to them starting tomorrow as we're gearing up to do a build.

3million naira? Hell no!
Pls try do a good work because the price for correction is going to be more expensive than cost to do standard work at initial stage, God will provide for you

Yes. You can surely use sand dug from your soak-away to fill your foundation.
No problem, that is what everybody uses it for, and just add laterite from other place to it.

So far the sand is laterite or sandy soil you can use it.
The standard oversite concrete slab is 150mm but 100mm is very good also but make sure you use good ratio for the concrete.
Also Make sure you filled the foundation in stage with enough water and well compacted.

OK.. Thank you sir

My candid advice is for you to start with what you have as there is no better time to start other than now. I started something about two weeks ago (a 4 bed flat, all ensuite) and you will be amazed at what I was able to achieve with a little over 1M. Although, the major factor that determines level of achievement is location, I stay in the north where the soil is stable to a great extent and labour cost is relatively cheap as well as cost of building materials.
Furthermore, make the property section of NL your building Bible (especially this thread)as you stand to gain a lot from experienced professionals that abound on the forum - they are always ready to help and I pray that God bless them all.
I've had instances that my building contractor would want to cut corners but the experiences I've gained so far helped me out.
Another point to note is, during the course of building, don't add too many unnecessary extras that are outside the original plan as this will help you to save cost.
My bros, Start with what you have!

Thanks for the input. I did learn alot from this section, especially how to tackle damp/wet wall...DPM/DPC. It's a major issue in Abuja and surroundings. My plot is located in Nasarawa State. I will definitely create a trend and tag the gurus in this section along (please kindly share pictures of your project, if you don't mind) Thanks

Bros nor go there. 3M for 3bedroom flat? Do not be deceived ooooo. Just take your time small small. No rushing ooooo.

Itemise what you need to buy.

1. Blocks 9 or 6inch
2. Granite or gravel
3. Sand
4. Cement
5. Pillars if needed (rod)
6. Setting and digging of foundation
7. Setting of blocks
8. Cost of labour
9. Omo onile if na you yoruba land
10. Water
11. Lintel stage and so on.

Hope this go guide us small.

Thanks I appreciate, this will definitely help in guiding me.

Please do not do any business with hsl-broker. He's a fraud and scammer. Took #3m of my money to deliver various building materials for me. It's almost a month now and nothing has been delivered. One excuse after another. Told me his father passed away. I gave him time to mourn his dad. Even why preparing for the burial, I begged him to have the materials ready that my contractor would pick them up. Just tell us where they are. He refused. If he had a legit business, he could have called his distributors and have them get the materials ready for us to pick them up without him being there. He said nothing can be done in his absence. I never thought I would experience this on nairaland. Deliver my materials is an issue, refund my money is an issue too. Roofing woodwork was done, but no roofing sheets. Now the rain has washed off the anti-termite treatment.

Exactly what I can see, the concrete mix ratio is ver my low. Look, you can hardly see any cement/granite mix but sand. And looks like filling was not well compacted either.
Look at the picture #2 for the lousy mix-ratio.
