Hello nairalanders, I've been willing to create something like this a long time ago but ive been quite busy and reluctant, this is not to show off but rather to create an awareness that people can still build and own decent apartments and not get unnecessarily fleeced on site.

I designed the house for my mom and supervised it from scratch to where it is now and I must tell you, we made use of materials with very good quality, yet total money spent to this stage isn't up to 5 million yet.

Feel free to ask me any questions, I'll be glad to respond.
Thanks all

Is 5m the cost of labour? Or does that include building materials as well?

I find it extremely difficult to believe that a house can be put together for 5m
Even less than.
Am an architect and I can't spend up to 5m to build 4bedroom bungalow.

Bro, it varies o, there are places in Ife now where cost of land goes for millions of naira and competition to get such lands will still be high, however, lands in less developed areas and new sites are cheap.

You could get for 100k to 500k

Actually there's a new development close to my work place, sijuade family wants to sell large expanse of land....so many hectares of land, an acre goes for 400k and its close to the major road....my younger bro wants to get 2 acres just for it to appreciate, he's offering 300k but the man hasn't accepted.

400k for an acre that could go for 1 billion somewhere in Banana island.

What side of ife is that and how can one be sure he wont hear stories later?

Cost of land = 250k



Cost of clearing and tractor work = 30k early 2014



Foundation = we moulded the blocks, like a tonne and half cement was used. like 750 blocks for Foundation.....total cost + workmanship 150k, you read that right, 150k



The bricklayer charged us 60k to lay the Foundation blocks.



Laying of blocks to lintel level...size 6 was used for this, we moulded all our blocks too, like 4 tonnes of cement and sand cost like 400k, that's like 2800 blocks



The bricklayer collected 150k



Lintel, iron rods, Carpenter work, bricklayer work and Concrete....like 200k



Wood work = 200k
Workmanship = 60k



Aluminum longspan roofing sheet = 450k



Buglary for all Windows, 14 big Windows and 5 small windows = 130k



Imported Entrance door and exit door....like 50k smiley



Aluminum Windows....Casement type = 400k



Exterior POP works on Windows and doors, cement used and sand, all cost us 30k, workmanship 120k



Flooring of all the floors and interior wall plastering...10 loads of sand like 80k, 2 and half tonnes of cement....64k
Workmanship = 60k (these were done when I came back from service 2 months ago, these are latest prices)



Electrical works and wiring. 250k + workmanship



Plumbing works (laying of pipes and channeling to the soak away + workmanship = 150k



POP work for living room, dining, 3 terraces, a lobby and visitor's toilet = 200k (2 weeks ago)



Digging of well and soak away pit = 250k (its not yet complete)



On going work today (Flooring of the Entrance porch + terrace and steps at the back - (6 bags of cement =9k, 30 six inches blocks = 3300, workmanship 6k....totalling approximately 20k



This is a break down of all the expenses from start to this stage....these are almost accurate estimate as she can't totally get the figures right.



There is still much money to spend ooo but life na jeje, na to dey do am small small as money dey show.
Thanks.








Bros nice analysis and expense breakdown. But there was a fatal mistake on the structural work.
You should have used 3 blocks after lintel instead of two blocks. That would've given the house a porch look, just try to improve on it in your next project.
Them no dey try pass try. Kudos

The land was acquired sometimes in 2014 for 250k in total, 2 plots of land 55 X 200m, I worked on a plan with a fellow colleague, when the building property commenced, some things were changed on the plan to suit my new taste and mama smiley smiley smiley smiley

The car porch has been changed to just a relxation spot as the location of the game has been changed.

Pictures to follow soon.

but the land of 2 plots should be (55m by 100) for the first plot and (55m by 100m) for the second plot,so that the 2plots will be 110m by 200m.Am I right ? I NEED YOUR HELP HERE

@ bolded, wow! Just wow!!! If my mom wasn't here with me right now studying the Bible, I would have thought she's the one typing to me, this is the ONLY criticism she has too, accessing the kitchen from the 3 bedrooms without passing thru the living room, in her voice, it could av been a perfect design....lol

There was a day we were both looking at possible solutions to that problem, cos I was impressed she brot that up, but its already late.

In case of emergency, one could have easily made that linkage as an escape route, some things have changed on that plan sef, like the door to the store is now located opposite the kitchen door, deres a small window facing the kitchen window for illumination.

If we are to recrify this, what suggestions do you have?

And yh, tnx for the compliments, na d plan many people dey trip for pass, simple, small home with nice arrangement of spaces.

No wahala, im always here, I'll be handling a 4 bedroom duplex very soon, im still at the design stage, will create a thread once im done, my client is in Leeds.

Put up a curtain rail there. L shaped Curtain rail
From the tip of that lobby entrance by the left, take it to the right hand side of the lobby near the dining.

Being that am typing, i cant really explain much.
But i believe that a curtain can give some level of privacy.
To avoid Visitors seeing your mom or sisters on their wrapper moving to and fro the kitchen
Re: Construction Of A 4-bedroom Bungalow For My Mom...all Bedroom Ensuite. by sorepco(m): 10:12am On Jun 22, 2016
Op i think its abit misleading na. U did not include the cost for architectural design and contractor fee. Dont u think it mite just take above 5milla?? U did all those free for mama....but what if i my mama gat no architect or contractor son?



Chelseafan1:


Lol....my oga its unbelievable but this is to show like-minded people that its actually possible if you have good people to work for you.

No final cost projection like that, my mom isn't rich, she started in 2014,shes been doing it slow and steady and funds is being gathered, shes just grateful it has a professional touch and she heaps praises on me every other day that if it weren't for me and God, it wouldn't have been possible/ds beautiful cheesy cheesy cheesy


This work has gotten me a few number of clients who wants me to give them something like this or slightly different.

The Land is based in ife, Osun state. The land alone will go for millions of naira in places like Lagos.

I'll give a break down of the total money spent till this stage as requested by raumdeuter,..
