If there is one thing safe enough for human consumption, it is weed. I mean, a natural weed that one can brew as tea.

I still wonder why this wondrous plant is still considered illegal, whereas toxins like alcohol and cigarettes are allowed. What a joke!

It's high time the government legalizes the recreational use of this plant, and it's medical use too.

The benefits are too tremendous! Anyways, visit www.bloghomies.com for some lucrative ideas.

Be deceiving yourself there.

Last month made it 4 years since my neighbor travelled to Italy via the Mediterranean Sea. Thank God for him, he arrived safely irrespective of the hurdles on the way.

He left behind a beautiful young woman not up to 29 years of age and with a little daughter of 6 years old.

Prio to this time I wasn't close to the wife but as time goes by this woman started greeting me frequently, exchanging cd plates with me even joining me to watch movies sometimes. I started noticing she's hot with her sexy hairy body. One night she opened up to me that she needs the touch of a man if we could be doing it secretly because her husband still promise to come for her hence what she needs is someone to be touching her once in a while and it must be a secret.

I truely like the offer but I'm scared of betraying my neighbor by banging his wife. I'm still thinking about it.

Banging somebody that you are not married to is a big sin before God.

A similar issue to this is that of Guest bedroom. Some think it should be accessed from the Living room, others think it should be from the Ante room thereby blocking the room from the main house. My question now is " what should be the right practice?"

Actually, the two have pros and cons and say is with the client. Some will decide to have it outside because they cannot contain visitors entering toilet or running to the toilet in their presence, take for instance, opposite sex in with a disturbing stomach. Also, toilet opening to the sitting room is a "no no" for some maybe because of how some will eject the toilet, smells etc. While some category will want to see how goes in and out etc. In this case, the decision is most likely with the client.
Furthermore, the design determines. There are some designs that is so space constrained that you only have one side to fix it, either outside or inside. There are designs too whereby the service wall and the sitting arrangement makes occupants back the vis toilet. In this latter scenario, i will have the door inside.

Dont remove it, please, it is very useful and necessary.
Put it INSIDE, it is a Toilet for YOUR Guest, not some random passer-by!
What is the door doing OUTSIDE, when the guest that will use it are already INSIDE your house?

Moreover, the more door access you have OUTSIDE, the costlier it is to secure them and the riskier your overall security becomes.

I dont know what @ArcToyin is thinking with his comment about "where do you want him to put it"?
That sort of statement should never come from an Architect because l am sure their training involves safety, security as well as aesthetics in building design. Is the "Bricklayer" not supposed to stick to the Arch-design of his Client?
Or is the Bricklayer and ArcToyin one and the same person? (Na serious joke sha grin grin)

Maybe you didn't read my comment on the post, i suggested having it inside. I raised the question because she was not satisfy with my response and the position of the door. The door can also be put outside if that is what she is thinking then i will now explain to her the negatives of it. This similar situation has been dictated by clients umpteen times. Some wanted it outside while some inside some don't want it at all while some will never take a design without it.

Hé brought the guest toilet out, making the porch to have 2doors(1 toilet door and the main entrance door)

That is how it is usually positioned. Or where do you expect him to put it?

Buiilders/engineers in here..I need your help, please when moulding blocks(5inch solid blocks), how many bags of cement for a trip of sand? And how many blocks will be needed to raise this plan to lintel level?

The engineer changed the plan, brought the guest toilet out and some crazy adjustments.. Do you think it is right for guest toilet door to be outside?

On the average of 2500 blocks. The position of the guest toilet is not a bad one. You are good to go with the plan.

Land inside an estate or outside of estate. Which would you recommend ?

Both are good.
Outside estate challenge is omo onile wahala, if you are able to scale through that, nothing else. The land cost of outside estate is very cheap compared to those of Estates even in the same region. In Estates, you are able to enjoy infrastructural facilities, security is guaranteed too. Outside Estate, you pay less on annual due( developmental dues, maintainace, security etc).

Dont mind the way i arranged it.

I believe you are aged enough to know your right from your left. God has spoken to you clearly but you want to use your brain and words of unbelievers to ruin yourself. You are fortunate to have God reveal to you who the second lady is going to be without seriously praying, it is a rare occurence. Four out of five Pastors too have told you the first is your wife and you are still beating about the bush, your sentiment about men of God will not ruin you.

I doubt if any Nigerian girl will make Heaven. These daughters of Eve are on another level.

A girl has been disturbing my guy for 15K since last week. I was with my guy last night when he showed me his chat with the girl. My guy was asking her what she needs the 15k for.. Girl boldly said, she's a big girl that my guy shouldn't be asking her such question.. A girl eating Mummy thank you is claiming to be a big girl.
As I'm writing now, they're inside the room now.. Only God know what they're doing. My mind is telling me they're studying the word of God.

We usually have two or sometimes three blocks between lintel and roofing. So, complete those blocks first with the money at hand. Then, you go and prepare for roofing.

I have taken contributions from my esteemed Engineering personel here and modified the layout.

Hints:
1. Put both toilets together for piping/evacuation ease.
2. Maintain the balcony for cloth hanger or inverter batteries or AC outdoor unit etc.

3. Position of kitchen to improve cross ventilation.

4. Visitor's toilet door was too close to bedroom door in the previous design.

5. The bedroom windows were previously split into two separate 600mm but now combined to a single 1200mm window.

6. Introduced a little shoot out by the kitchen, to make the 2storey building look a bit stylish than being just flat and bland.


7. Most importantly, with the same perimeter of a given space, the closer the space is to being a square the more the area created. Hence most of the spaces are square in nature.

What I mean is:

Length : breadth: Area : Perimeter

L : B : P : A
7 : 1 : 16 : 07
6 : 2 : 16 : 12
5 : 3 : 16 : 15
4 : 4 : 16 : 16


One drawback is that, there will be a visible tie beam in the kitchen. That could be concealed with pop though.

Kindly look into

1) Create an exit door for the kitchen leading to the entrance porch.
2) The apartment is choke. Increase the width of all the windows by 300mm.
