Good afternoon people, please I need your help. I need an estimate of how much it will cost to finish a 4-bedroom flat already at lintels level on a moderate budget. The building has a lobby and a living room.
I want to have an idea of how much it will cost to finish it, the money is not exactly available but if I have a rough estimate, then I can know where to start from and what to do with the little money on ground.
Your ideas are needed on the type of doors to use - affordable ones please.
Roofing sheets and ceiling materials.
Experts here should please help me list the needed materials and the cost estimate.
Thanks.

From what I've seen on here, the professionals would need a building plan as well as the area that you're building in to give you a very very rough estimate.

The method that I'm employing is different from most on here so it might not be applicable to you as I'm not in any hurry to complete my build at all.

Good luck on your project.

Let me give u a more detailed explanation at how I arrived at the 4-5m I gave u on my thread...

Considering the size and the standard.

Roofing = 1m plus using aluminum or almost using fibre Cement roofing sheet. Let's stick with 1m

Windows = at about 21-24k per window (casement) for 1200 by 1200 with other sizes being relative. Total Windows are about 18 nos with some bigger than 1.2by1.2 = abt 550k

Doors = let's use 25k per door, thou ur steel doors for external wld cost about 50-75k depending on choice and size, we have abt 15 doors that's about 400k

Total for doors and windows = abt 1m also (remember you'll need Cement, sand to fix all)

Tiles = just budget 500k if you want to tile all floors and toilet walls. Your choice can make it more or less.

Ceiling to rooms = asbestos cost 1.4k per sheet of 1.2by1.2. Your square area is approx = 250m2 this about 240k for materials only. Add workmanship, Trans etc I'll say 350k

Electrical and plumbing = visit an electrical shop and you'll appreciate Nigeria cable is gold... Just budget 750k for electrical and another 500k for plumbing

I HOPE WE'VE NOT EXCEEDED 5m?

Good, so far we're on 4m only... .

Think about this, Buglary, Painting, plastering (which can't be less than 300k materials inclusive for plastering only),

Need I type more? - Sorry I have to stop - A client just sent me a whatsapp message.

So in summary you can't really spend less than 5m

Good luck.

But the courtyard in the floor plan, will give serious roofing problem, too small. I see no need for it...

shocked

This plan is an insult to professionals like me.
This was certainly drawn by a quack draughtsman


Which architect still designs on tracing paper wih point pens and stencils when we have Archicad, Revit and AutoCAD 3D.

OP get that plan redesigned by a professional.
Who still uses a void courtyard next to a kitchen in a bungalow just for lighting purposes?


The design is shabby, very shabby.

The toilets for the two rooms should be ensuite,
Same as that for the guestroom...

The situation of the guestroom is also a no-no for me. It should not be accessed on the same lobby where the master's bedroom is accessed through.
There is no privacy.

Only professionals can relate to my critique.


To your question on cost?
No need building this trash. Get it redesigned.

So many things is missing in your calculation.
Plastering, painting, burglary at 300 with workmanship,hmmmmm

* to do plastering alone just workmanship your 200-300k is gone.
* now calculate cement, sand,
*paint cost and labour.
*burglary



Only tiles will cost you about 650-750. Against 500 qouted.

Now add
* cement
*sand
* water
* workmanship



Roofing 1m for aluminum roof and wood work. Recheck again.

Only wood work and workmanship will cost you about 350-400k

*Now calculate aluminum
* installation

Aluminum casement window for 25k ? 1200*1200 size.
Hmmmmm

We dey watch o


Just my 5cent ooo.

Consult a certified quantity surveyor. By mere looking at it it could run into millions, 5m at least. And this is just the floor plan. What about roofing and type of material specified? The roofing is a whole new level on it on.
