The contemporary flat roofs look very simple but costs more to build than traditional roof designs when done right.

Lots of examples of “money can’t but taste” around me here in Elebu, Ibadan.

You’ll see some monstrosity and you know they paid good money for the ugliness.

It’s well.

Apt. I went to see a tiler recommended to me by a friend where he was working in someone's house. Looking at the house, I knew money was not a problem to the owner. But the kind of finishing, mismatched tiling and irrelevant things but highly expensive I saw made me to shook my head.

See poor choices everywhere. I knew immediately that the owner paid good money for ugliness. I thought to myself that at least he should have consulted an interior decorator or visit Internet to see some modern designs considering the fact that money wasn't his problem.

What you call 'ugliness' might be his 'beauty'.Remember:''Beauty is in the eyes of the Beholder''.

Sometimes you wonder why pay money for some jobs. Even a DIYer may do a better job than paid artisans sometimes.

Finishing is still the biggest challenge in Nigeria.

Looking great. I saw the build last weekend during my visit to Ibadan. I also saw JJ ... banner grin

I was particularly looking forward to see the construction of the glass elevator cabin. I saw the frame already in place.

These are bound to happen when people trust the expertise of craftsmen over technicians and that of technicians over technologists and so on... It is only pathetic that learned people who are expected to know better are the ones who fall victims of these quacks because they want to save the cost of commissioning a project manager.
Many of the craftsmen are not qualified enough to practise, they didn’t spend time enough to learn as much as required. They should also not work without the supervision of a project manager.There are also no laws regulating the influx of people into the construction industry.
Also, sadly, the trade test certificates that are meant to be the qualifying document for craftsmen has lost its respect. No one is being tested before certification as long as you have enough money to buy it.
Quality has a cost, and it cannot be ignored. You’ll pay for it one way or the other.

Now I can sleep in peace.

I’m still at loss on why a builder should play the role of a skipper and umpire in a building project.

Hello! Greetings to you all

I am thinking on purchasing a land ( long term investment purpose) anywhere around Lagos or Anambra State but would love to know the following;
- where’s the best location I can get value for money( any location around the above mentioned states).
- I don’t intend building on the land but as a first time land owner, what are the most important things I should know?

As one who intends to buy a land for the first time, I have done some findings but any advice I get here will be highly appreciated.

Someone tagged me on this post earlier but I couldn’t attend to it due to busy schedule.

Lagos I know and I can speak for. You’d get more value in Lagos BUT you have to be very sure of the deal you’re walking into.

But from established estates. Avoid bushes and lands without proper planning/documentation. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is. Walk away!

Engage a reputable lawyer who is highly experienced in real estate matters and wahalas if you’re buying Lagos lands.

You’d be glad you did!
