This is a 3 bedroom flat and 2 room self contain. Please who have a rough estimate on what it will cost to roof such?

I think they’ll need a roof plan.

You guys are not saying exactly the same thing; You said you offered to pay the borehole guy 50k to complete but you didn't go ahead with that plan cos the client wasn't around to supervise the work.

@micgray100 says he is/was willing to pay the 50k balance (which is even a wrong move altogether) but the borehole guy said categorically that won't be enough to finish the job. Two different things.

The worst part is both of you are not even speaking offline. And when you come online you're not on the same page.

At this point you are the one that can end all this and stop it from degenerating further... If truly you offered to pay the 50k balance, I suggest you add an extra 50k to make up the 100k which the client has been magnanimous to accept as full and final settlement.
That way, ALL the parties to the transaction would have made some reasonable sacrifice and you can all move on. Cased closed.

And if you're still so confident in your efforts with the NPF, then you can choose to continue the wild goose chase and get your money back from there if it eventually works out.

I understand you pretty well.. but truth be told I did all to safe the situation… I never knew referring someone will turn to a big issue like this.. one way or the other we are all product of recommendations and that actually won’t stop me from recommending people.. the said guy has done 3 job before and he did well on those job…

Yes the first 200k was transferred to my account and the guy actually got to site before the issues arrises.. I attached some screenshots and my communication with the said guy below.

I don’t have anything to gain from this rather just helping a brother

Look odd?

It’s your personal residence. Any guest that feels it’s odd don’t have to come back.

My suggestion is to build to your taste and how your family lives, but structurally sound.no

Good luck on your project.

Thanks

Has anyone recently done a fencing work on a plot of land?

I have a plot of land in Ibadan that i want to do 5 coaches of fencing on.

Does anyone have an idea of how much it could cost?

Thanks in advance.

So this type of hardground you use ONE hand and get the job done in no time without drama?

I know you hardly read before you comment. grin

Here’s my post once again. Take note of the use of the following:

- workers not worker
- a good number of handy men not one man.
- set of diggers not one digger
- they not he/she
- them not him/her

Good morning All,
I am planning on using the open concept design for my kitchen and I noticed its rarely used here in naija, just wondering if it won't look odd if I use it.
Please what's your take on this.
Thanks

If it's for rental, it may look odd for some section of the rental market. If it's for student accommodation, it is spot on.

If it's your family home and you are married, it is good advice to clear with your significant other IF your significant other is the lady of the house.

However, IF you are the lady of the house, you are the boss. Go ahead. Open concept or open plan is making significant in road in Nigeria especially in Abuja.

Your enquiries are not complete.

What is the size of the land? The measurements differ.

@N3XT, could Kobocity calculator help this person?

It might look odd n might not at the same time.
Let's put into consideration
1) where your property is situated is IMPORTANTEST
2) are you ready to give it all accessories that makes an open kitchen functional n not look at the cost of making it happen
3) your circle

The Client has lived in the USA north of 3 decades and specifically requested SW.
I guess it’s the shade he chose.

One of my clients requested for an open kitchen in his personal build. He however added a pre kitchen to the design. The pre kitchen was our regular Nigerian style of kitchen (for our dishes and aroma ) but a smaller one.. Guess what, it turned out well.

It's our family home and my wife suggested the idea and I fancied it.

solely depends on the user, for me it is good, the dining will connect seamless with the kitchen, and the kitchen will have a bar like counter top with high stools where one can have a quick meal, never forget to install smoke extractor, this will stop the smokes and unpleasant gases from escaping from the cooking area.

You mean an island for quick meals.

Smoke extractor is certain.

Yah all keep mentioning “our aroma”. Don’t yah all have vented kitchens?
Re: General Topic Thread-To Discuss Anything And Everything in Building Construction by Beframia: 7:52pm On Aug 02
Vented kitchen ke? It's like you have not experienced some stubborn local cooking condiments that even a strong windstorm in a specific direction cannot prevent the aroma from drifting the opposite direction. grin grin

kinda of, but a bar like layout, one end attached to a wall, not really an island since it's not overly isolated

It’ll work though BUT not without huge sacrifices

I know quite a number of ppl who have this. I also have it in one of my recent designs - a complete open plan living.
