Good day nairaland good people. I'm gearing up to start up foundation on a 50*100. By the Grace of God I'd be giving updates on the process stage by stage

Moulding blocks will commence tomorrow as my engineer also advised 1500 blocks (500 - 9inches and 1000 - 6inches)
Total of 50 bags of cement was given to give 1500 bags.
Moulders will be taking N800 per bag on 6" blocks and N900 on 9" blocks. Please advise if this rate for moulders is okay. I really don't know much about building


Location: Benin City
Thanks in anticipation

The price for block making is usually around N800 average, providing that they will get very strong blocks.

*Update
So far I've been able to mould 1523 blocks. My Engineer has been "dulling" me and delaying when foundation would start. Hopefully foundation should commence by this coming week with a "no retreat, no surrender pace of work. I'm hopeful it turns out well and God provides so work could be completed

Work has begun on the site. We've started the digging but couldn't do the casting during the weekend as we has small issue about workers charge fee which made work to start late. My Engineer is advising that we get workers from the East as labor is quite expensive in Benin.
For the labrorer pay which included carpenter and iron bender i was charged 900k to reach parafet level.

My Engineer insists we get workers from the East to reduce cost.

Below are pics of work in progress

God has been faithful. Foundation is coming up well. I notified my site engineer I needed a high foundation as it adds beauty to any house. Was pleased with the pace of the job as Laterite was on ground today to fill it up. Was displeased with the sizes of the room, bathroom and kitchen as they looked small. Although wifey said they'd look bigger whe walls are raised up but I already notified the site engineer that there'd be rectification after the German floor has been done.

Ogas in the house, do foundation rooms look smaller than the actual sizes ?

Mine looks so tiny.

I needed a large sitting room, large masters and large kitchen. Other rooms can be moderate. Can you help look at the floor plan to see if it's possible to tell if the rooms would look big with the dimension given

Same thing happened on Wednesday before our German where some spaces look bigger and some smaller, clients always complain of this,but if the Architect has a standard job no matter the plot might be he must be able to get a standard size.

Congratulations op nice work. But i noticed some things about the floor plan.

One thing most architects/engineer don't put into place when designing is cost. With this kind of design trust me you are going to spend much on construction/finishing. Even when the money is there nobody prefers to waste it.You will get to understand what am saying especially when it gets to roofing level

I. think the shape of your building is somehow irregular although it will be good if it comes out well

2.You also have wasted spaces especially in the lobby side

3. Am sure this design was done by an engineer and not an Architect. Pls for the sake of knowledge purpose there's a big difference between an architect and an engineer

Simplicity n economy of space Is paramount in architecture?

In all I wish you the very best and success OP

I was on site yesterday and he assured me that the sizes are large. Although some of the lobby will be closed to make room for more space

Thanks for the observation. For the lobby I've notified he closes up 2 lobby I felt was unnecessary to make room for more space.
As regards coming out well, I hope it does. He has built something like that for someoelse in owerri and I kinda like it.


"With this kind of design trust me you are going to spend much on construction/finishing"

Please throw more light on this. Thanks
