oga spyder this 17m shey Na from Foundation to roofing, including painting, wiring, tiling, and furnishing (I.e kitchen cabinets and wardrobes) and plumbing?

No cheesy

The parapet and roofing alone for this size of house with top grade stone coated roofing tiles with carpentry and materials will not be less than N7m.

How much do you think will do the rest of the structure?

Bros, the N17m excludes all finish works like plastering, dressing, ceiling, doors or windows, tiles and electrical wires.

Yes it will complete the roofing. This particular house is large. There are duplexes that could be built with N12 or even less to roofing level.

okay, I guess 25 M should be able to complete it with all necessary items, right? Thanks.

Yes, but the finish of a house is a very wide field. We cannot talk finish of buildings if we don't talk of the finish standards. There is a finish standard you will choose and N25m cannot complete the finish alone, after the building. But if you choose regular materials and not expensive additions like imported security doors, elegant tiles and classy windows/wardrobes and cabinets, the cost of finish will reduce.

Another fact, this house is very large. This is 19 meters X 14.3 meters. Other smaller houses are cheaper to construct and finish.

Normally, we pay about N60k for stone from Abakaliki area to Enugu but if it's to be taken further inland to other towns, it could get to N67- N70k per full load.
this is a 10ton truck sir, am i correct.

Ground beams, and the cast.

after casting the ground beam within the confinement, do you still cast around it, or do you just start laying blocks without casting around it. what are the cost implication of this method as compared with the conventional method we are used to.

Engineer,why is your footing width a size of block and not 3 times its size?

Welcome Sir, the footing you picked in the post I made "Casting now completed, let's start the foundation block work" is not the first footing in this foundation. We first did a 300mm thick cast spanning 1 meter width before we even started a reinforced ground beam which we pictured. It was only the beam and not the whole footing that you quoted from. Thanks.
