I don't even no the name properly. But the colour is Red...

Is laterite!!

Clay soil is no no in building industry because it shrinks during dry season and that can cause movement in the foundation, but laterite (red mod) sticks together when compacted.

Cement is 4500, you better wait if your budget includes furnishing

Unless you have land already and about 5k blocks

If u have 12m plus land, start a duplex.
I'm not saying 12m will complete it, but u will go a very long way. If u have monthly income, then u shud be done in a year plus ur 12m.
Better to finish a duplex in 12 months than complete a bungalow in 3months. U will get bored of the bungalow
Seconded

I’m thinking of letting my Mum supervise the project though they’ve their own building but not to the standard taste I want mine and I’m thinking she might not supervise it very well undecided because I’ll be heading to school next year (that’s if school resume sha oo lols )

Why?
It's irritating. No be we suffer pass, we should stop behaving like dat.

The moment a typical Nigerian just see say u dey package, everywhere good, he wants to know what you're doing. When u tell dem it won't end there, they themselves want to start doing it too even if they already have something doing. Looks more like greed to me

I have experience this on several occasions and i have stopped attending to dem. Somethings are not for everybody

How experienced is your mother in building supervision. I asked because I wouldnt want these builders to cheat her. If she is experienced, then its a done deal for you. Else, you should consider doing the supervision yourself.
My mom isn’t experienced at all in that aspect oo lols

It will finish the building with a good interior. What I meant was that the term "good interior" is relative. if you want to start importing high quality Italian marbles as floor and wall finishes, high end electronic gadgets for the house and so on then, the money might not been enough to finish it.
But if it just a normal finishing like good tiles and paint job, moderate electronics and kitchen elements etc then it's more than enough
Don't try it. You will regret it badly. Not that she will eat the money. I'm telling you from what my uncle experienced with my granny. Don't make that mistake.

normally I have like 30m extra apart from the funds I use for Business
I’m only thinking of Spending 12m in order to reduce cost.

And also is a Duplex far better than a bungalow undecided
ion have experience at all in this field that’s why I brought it here Abegg no vex for my questions lols

Don't terminate the project because building materials go up all the time.
Let your mum supervise it.
Block work doesn't cost much and not too much problem.
It's the finishing that takes money, depending on your taste.
This will require your personal judgement.
The type of roof
The type of floor
Your bathroom
Kitchen Units of your taste
Wardrobes etc

People normally concentrate on the essential and gradually work on the finishing. All the best

Oga no terminate anything... It is better you take action now, because price of materials can increase anytime, as you also aware of the country we are in...

So start the project now before 12M turn to 5M

Good luck.....

So you mean 12m won’t finish the building with a good interior right .?


That amount is more than enough to give you what you want in that building if only you can use your HEAD. I can advice you on how to go about it if you want.

Don't build a house worth 12m on a land of 550k. Get land in a better location. You will still use the same amount to build in the better location. I am talking from experience. Real estate is about location. I am not expecting your land to worth nothing less than 1.5m to 2m or more if your building is going to worth 12m.
