Business / Re: Starting Up A Filling Station: How Much Capital Is Needed? by AmAlone: 10:55am On Jan 29, 2012

1.Land for the feeling station how much?
2.How many tanker is needed,How much each?
3.A truck for conveying the fuel.
4.Building the structure how much?
5.Other things involved and joining the union,How much

There is definitely no specific amount required to build you a filling station.
But I can give a very close estimate.

*** Depending on the land. If you want quick return, then you need to consider having 2plots together by a (very) busy road
For land 22 to 25million upward(2plots). Which I learnt you can't use less than a plot to build a filling station again on a very busy road.
other documents to process your full ownership of the land can cost you and extra 4million(omonile,lawyer charge, and the others)

*** Since you own the filling station and its on a major road, you need around 11,000 litres tanker 10 to 12m and you need atleast 2.
One big one and one small one. The small one cost around 5 to 6.5m

*** The underground tank can cost your 4.5m to 5.5m(for 4. Kerosine, diesel and 2 for fuel) Depending the quality/size you want and the workmen involved though.
*** The structure will cost you nothing less than 16million upward.
*** Other thing involved can cost you much extra. 3m may do!!!!

3years ago when I made this enquiry  I was told 80M.

Though it depends on your location and the size. A small one can cost half this price(on a plot. but cannot be built on a busy road)
You can go for a land costing 500k to 5m. Build your filling station,
but be ready to drink you fuel. . .  .

Am Alone, feel free to share information but do not give out contact of your artisan. Every private and commercial builder should be able to find reputable craftsman to work with. Let's see how far you have gone.

Can you post the total cost of installing the tiles, electrical fittings and plumbing.

Again, feel free to share but be security conscious. What you have installed are basic things a hardworking fellow should be able to afford but poverty and bad belle plenty for una country.



@ am alone,

Thanks, I quite understand your fear but you can check my profile n post to get more detail about. Wishing you the very best.

I will check and see about that. You resides in Lagos?


Is electricity cable supposed to be magnetic? I thought copper was the ideal material for making electric cables. Please enlighten us my brother.

NO MAN!!! They are not. That is y it is good to go with magnet to know if they are magnetic

Nice points guys, wish I saw this when I was at home, this handheld will not allow me see the posted pictures or post some others. Is there some way we can chain the floor on one single level since the floor cannot be on one level due to the slope?

Yes you can/could. When if you check my first pic you would c how.
After raising the backside of the building to the level of the fronside, then you can chain up!!!!

Good news is that the decking will be on same level. Its a very good news my man!!!

Properties / Re: Building A Large Duplex In Enugu by AmAlone: 12:32am On Jan 28, 2012
Bros Spyder, my take is that you have at least two different building you are building together.
To make them one, I think you need to chain them up. Otherwise  in a space of 6 months or so.
you will notice that the building will start to seperate at that joint(because of the rotation of the earth) & because just chalking it will not hold it back.



Again, I don't know how you plan to do the decking, but please dont make same mistake as you did with the german floor.
since you are building this house as a building, let the decking make them one!!!!!

That is the best solution I can offer.

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.

Properties / Re: Building A Large Duplex In Enugu by AmAlone: 11:42pm On Jan 27, 2012
@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.

Hi guys, I've noticed somethings about some peeps on NL
In a way they are always very 'forward' trying to correct other people
when they(the people/person) posts certain things on NL that are wrong or mistaken.
But sometimes it happens that while they're in such an hurry to
correct/mess-up this people they ended up messing up themselves even more. . .

So I'm proposing this same thing to everyone who visits this thread.
Lets mess-up the poster above us, then why trying to be a professionals
mess-up ourselves more grin grin grin grin

So I'm gonna let this begin with me

I just got my blackberry,I will buy my pin next week  wink

Thes[b]These questions need to be answered before I part with my widows mite, especially the question with regard to sourcing medication for her from abroad.

If this story is true, and has been confirmed to be true, then I will suggest that an online mechanism should be set up whereby the 800,000+ members of Nairaland are morally motivated to donate £1 each. That way £800,000 (about 200 million Naira) can be raised for her.[/b]

Some people have up to 25,000 ID's here on NL
Some nearly double that number.
Other no longer uses theirs. Are you saying one pound for every one ID's?
because I have 3 ID's Intotal. the 1st was banned, the second I forgot PWord
The third said it all . . . .

Not everyone is generous you know. And nos all NL members can afford to help.
Lastly, some people here to collect the little we are willing to donate

Try "Yuki Maton" Sells for around 500 to 600 naira. It it not made in Nigeria
But works alot. Infact the last time I sprayed it was 4days ago. I don't have mosquito nets @home
but no disturbance at all. If i notice just one again, I will spray it again.
I guess that will be for another 5 to 6 days. Assuming I use mosquito nets, then i guess 1 spray can last for eternity. . .

Politics / Re: Another Bomb Explosion At Sheka Police Station In Kano by AmAlone: 7:46am On Jan 25, 2012

My quote: The 9/11 bombing in America by the notorious Osama Bin Laden

You are just saying. I said bombing and never mention how it was bombed. And you come here to say what I didn't and still correct me for saying what I didnot? grin grin grin

Like someone said earlier, you need to consult a/your structural engineer before posting ****
No matter how small/tall or short a building needs be. it need pillars/columns to carry it.
you can break the whole building for all I care so long as the right columns are not altered the building still stands.
Osama was a mastermind who don't have time beating around the bush. The hit the right column(s), and the whole building fell apart.

And as for the 'Madrid fire of 2005', if I may ask, can fire burn steel? Can it burn Columns made of concrete? Fire burn only flammable substance(s)
as a result, if the 'Madrid fire of 2005' was built with steel, the fire can last for twice more than it lasted, but just a fire cannot bring down a building built of steel.
