@Spyder, Well done my man,
I hardly visit the property section this days. . . . .

Honestly, I have a guy thaat did 8blocks of 2bedroom flat on (a storey building, 4 up 4 down).

it was a very sloppy ground(like the one you have here. Or yours may be worst).
I know it is very good to save money, but I thinks its always better not to be pound foolish(ABEG I NO MEAN INSULT O).

***Please note I'm not saying you must do this o. But I think from experience, you should consider.
I will take time to post some of the picture of the house you are building, edit to display my point.
I wanted to take permission from u before i do so, but i think its is just too urgent, i can't risk it.****

So back to the guy dat build the 8flat. After his German floor, the building/German floor started cracking real bad Like one part
of it was falling back into the slop. NOTE: His building process was not as fast as yours. And it was during the raining season.
So he was lucky to see that there was a mistake somewhere. . . .

In fact his land was not as sloppy as your, yet he took an extra measures. YET the damn German floor cracked. So he corrected it
at the top.(which is not always the best option. But i think it's even better to correct).

Before I go further, I like to introduce to you the picture of his foundation, for your reference. So you can see the measures that was taken to correct the defect!!!!!

P.S. 1.1million was what he used to fill the foundation.

NOTE: the big pillars that was used at the end where the slope reached and building stopped. It stands as a bigger and stronger column to help the building from shifting in the nearest future. After this, a chain-up was done before the German floor(will still confirm from him tomorrow). After they did the German floor, 2 months later when he came back to continue his work, he noticed that the German floor has cracked/shared into 2 parts.

Re: Building A Large Duplex In Enugu by AmAlone: 12:15am On Jan 28, 2012
So the solution to the above mistake done buy this guy(base on my experience), would have been a raft foundation and a chain-up(like brabus did for his house).
********
Now let me not forget to tell you that you're doing a very wonderful job here, and I've always admired your work. Again I'm glad to see that
you still in the business till now. Spyder what you gave to us as cost of building is very reasonable and workable(in your area/end). I confess and stick to the fact thatcost of construction over there is very fair though u still added some maggi to the soup grin grin grin. Unlike some others that tells us they can do it very very cheap here in lagos. Its laughable to see that they've faded away. deception won't take any man far.
*******
So Mr. Spyder, i noticed the that yours has got no raft at all(correct me if i'm wrong. Because you the one seeing the whole thing for real).

So I'll just outline the problems I think I noticed. Again, I may be wrong!!! Besides, we learn everyday. . .

* I noticed when you do chain-ups you don't put them all on same line? Please you need to make sure it goes round and on the same line.
