Estimated Cost Of Decking My House by Chukky73(m): 11:39am On Nov 10, 2018
Hello everyone,
I’m sorry to bother you - the building professionals in the house with some questions.
I am currently building a 5 bedroom duplex in Anambra State. The building has now reached the decking level and I’m wondering how much it will cost to do the decking given the current market prices of building materials.
I live in Europe and being my first building project I was excited to come home to witness the digging of the foundation uptil lintel and the 3 blocks coaches to ready it for decking.
I’m now back to Europe, and preparing for the decking of the house which by God’s grace I will complete and go to the next level.
I would like you to help me out with an estimated cost of decking this “small” house.
Attached is the plan of the building to enable you make an informed estimate for me.
Pls note that the last attachment is UPPER FLOOR PLAN as opposed to GROUND FLOOR PLAN as erroneously and unfortunately indicated/stated.
Thank you for your time as I welcome any suggestions and possible criticisms.
May God bless you all in all your undertakings as the year draws to a close and the years ahead.[color=#000099][/color]

Did mine November 2016. Cost me about N1.65m. Same 5 bedroom duplex. Was in Lagos though and I was physically present to ward off thieves.

Beware of thieving builders. I can see some of them peeping here. You will save a lot if you can buy materials yourself and be present. If not find a trustworthy contractor that will chop less. The will surely eat you, but the key is the find a less greedy one. One that will not chop too much. You've already told them you live in Europe.

Note: I hade a very big void in the middle of the sitting room though. I think it's important you know that with regards to the total cost.
Re: Estimated Cost Of Decking My House by Chukky73(m): 12:19pm On Nov 10, 2018
Thank you for that swift reply Koning. I actually came to Nigeria last month to commence the project and I bought all the materials myself including paying for the labor.
In relation to thieving workers it might be possible but I wasn’t thinking about that actually.
Moreover, thanks for the advice.
The materials were delivered in my father’s compound which is just a stones throw from my site because I don’t have much space in the site.
In fact, as I write to you, I have huge piles of 16mm, 12mm, 8mm and 1/4 rod remaining after the pillars and chaining both down and the lintel have been completed.
The rod estimate was meant to be in excess of what I need at this stage instead of having shortage as the work progressed.
Having said that, I’m happy for you to have done your own at that price. However, the year 2016 is exactly two years ago, right. And I’m sure the prices of building materials then have changed and is profoundly diffferent from the price it is sold now. For example, I moulded the 9” blocks( hollow ) for this house in 2016 when the price of cement was at N1,400 as opposed to N2,400 I bought last month.
You were extremely lucky as a stitch in time they say saves nine,lol.
Thanks for your contribution bro.

Exactly, having void enhances aesthetics of a house depending on the design while it saves cost on the other hand with regard to materials.

Mine was about 2.9m. Same size with yours in lagos. You said you bought cement for 2400 this year? I bought 2700 when I did decking

The rough estimate based on the plans supplied should no be more than 2m.. This covers concreting, reinforcements and formwork to be used.... I am a Quantity surveyor for more detailed stage by stage estimate and material scheduling contact me 09037396586

Indeed, I bought cement at N2,400 last month - October to be precise - including cost of delivering it to my site because I bought a lot from the dealer and the brand I bought is BUA.
Prior to this huge supply, I had bought 30 bags of the same product at a local market at the rate of N2,500 with extra N50 per bag for transportation (N2,550 ), which was used for blinding and setting up the pillars with basket as they call it.
I understand that the cost of building materials is unstable and fluctuate a lot dictated by season and the forces of demand and supply.
So, I do not doubt you.
Again, don’t you think that the geographical location of your project has an effect as to labor and cost of materials ?
I read something about it here

It’s almost N3m. I won’t be surprised considering the current cost of materials.
It’s well. Congrats bro.

I’m glad for the feedback I’m getting. Teebawse, thank you too.
Well, the fact that yours is a twin 3 bedroom duplex will make it even more expensive in my own opinion.
It’s cool you are done with that stage. Congrats.

Kindly tell how much you finally spent on the decking of your house and especially, the quantity of granite used for the decking only.

Bros, Did you use the Architect to build as well? Or did you hire a different Contractor? I just want to know how much they pay contractors for a 5 bedroom duplex as well. I reside overseas too. I can also be reached at my email: jeremyltd@yahoo.com
Thanks Jerry
