Dijita:


Thank you and God bless.
My kobo kobo project is been handle by my sister and the husband who is a supplier. Thanks to this site and the professionals here I am educated and get help in cutting down on price quotations. Unlike in the beginning of the project where I was been told the price of things which I later discover to be way higher than stated, now I just quote the price I got from here and told them that if there supplier can't meet the price I will call my own guy to deliver at this price. I will then add extra money for effort. In this particular instance here I added 30k .
Just in case some people are wondering, I am not just taking I patronize people here as well. I got my architect from here and have done about#300,000 business with him. I hope to patronize others in the future
This is seriously serious, as One4me always say "Dog eat Dog" God help us...

My master bedroom is on the ground floor. My office is upstairs. There are weeks I wouldn’t step upstairs to do anything.

Stair chairlift is cool but a nice bungalow is better as we age.

@flekky07

If this looks good, I’ll see if I can get you the contact of the guy who supplied this to men at cooperative villas.

He’s one of the most responsible supplier on that axis. I really mean responsible.

He has been in that area for years.

I’m not guaranteeing he’ll be cheaper or not but I’m sure he’s very reliable and no one can stand in his way in the area.

I’m talking about granite. The sand were delivered using NextHome dump truck.
thanks God bless u.

I don’t have anyone who will sell cheap to you in that area. All the suppliers in Unity/Cooperative Villas/Badore environ knew me and I know their prices.

That’s why I decided to do my own dump truck because they’re in business to make profit and I can’t stand in their way.

I’d suggest you talk to your supplier and discuss getting further discount with him.

These things ain’t easy as it was presented.
Any truck you bring into the area that’s not working with the suppliers will have serious issues.

I’ve been a resident of Unity and Cooperative Villas and know almost every suppliers and block makers in the area, I can tell you this won’t come easy.
Brabus this is an excuse, i went to the market to buy tomatoes association of tomatoes will come to my house stopping me from using my tomatoes, pls tell me is the association a professional one, with course in Nigeria university?

...pls say something else.

Chekitaut! Good evening sir! You have just challenged science that sand is heavier than granite!
This can easily be verified. Can somebody fill two paint buckets or any equal containers, one with sand and another with granite, and weigh them on a scale?

What is the outcome?

32.5 is the recommended grade by all cement manufacturers.

Higher grade and rapid hardening cements are not too good for plastering works if you want to avoid plaster cracks that might arise from drying shrinkage, especially given the high temperature here.

Ordinarily, one would assume the higher the grade the better. The nature of the sand used also matter a lot.

Really?

Each man for himself.

Aggregate can be a composition of several materials (gravel/granite/crushed stones/ recycled concrete) to form concrete.

So what they’re doing is not out of place.

While some use pure stone dust + cement to produce this paving stones, some other people use stone dust + sharp sand + cement and there are those who use sharp sand. + granite + cement.
which is with best strength?

Its over 5 years i did the ground floor and unfortunately i can't remember the quotation but did the decking not long ago. I intend raising the first floor now but I need responses so as not to be cheated by the bricklayers. If to just give no of blocks and cement. Size of decking is 43ft length and 35.5breadth

Your expected expenditure will be close to 4m or 5m due to high raise of building materials in Nigeria now.

There’s 6cm mold and there’s 8cm mold. The 8cm is fresh and wet hence the difference in colour.

I’ll talk more on quantity per bag and per sqm and the process of curing later tomorrow.

i hv seen a pave stone produce with 3/4size aggregate(Granite), any reason for that?

@n3xt and other builders in the house, does anything special need to be done for a decking not to leak after construction if one intends to leave it for at least 5yrs before continuing with upper part while living on the ground floor.

The building in question will be rented out.

Thanks
use marine board for the decking or use nylon b4 decking is most prevented way, Aventure mentioned it smtimes ago, i can remember, but is not a permanent cure for licking.
