Jobs/Vacancies / Re: Two Job Offers: I'm Confused by saydfact(m): 1:39pm On Nov 25
Blessynene:
So I got two Job offers within one month, with a big and smaller organization but both salaries are the same.

I accepted both but started with the bigger organization, and in less than two weeks am almost breaking down from stress. The workloads and deadlines are unbearable though you will grow career wise.

Now the offer for the smaller organization is still open and am tempted to resign from this one because of the workload and take up the less stressful job.

Please I need urgent answers so I don't make any huge career mistake. Thank you my fellow nairalanders

Don't resign pls,
Face the challenge and grow..

GOODLUCK

A very blessed morning great and wonderful people, please l am planning to tile my house what are the things to look out for when buying the tiles,
1.what are the best brands of tiles?
2. How do l know which one would not crackup, which one will not loose colour or fade?
3. How much is labour per square meter
4. Which one is economical and of good quality?
Any other advise

God bless you n answer your prayers as u respond.

CONGRATS for getting this far...

If what you're considering are Nigerians tiles then (IN MY OPINION):

1, CDK, GOODWILL and GOLDEN CROWN
2. CDK wont lose colour, while for Goodwill (the more expensive ones are of higher quality) but generally, the lighter the colour, the less it loses colour
3. say between 350 and 750 - depends on who's doing it and what quality you demand
4. GOODWILL is the most economical among the 3..

GOODLUCK

found this ......... Hope theres no amendment or addition

You've done some modification to the initial sketch, my observations are:

1. The 2 bedroom by the right, the toilet doors shd be nearer to the bedroom door not the bedroom window.
2. The laundry cant work in front of the store
3. The visitor's toilet cant be in the middle of the room
4. Too many openings created in the living room, makes it NON-functional and difficult to arrange furnitures

The initial sketch I posted is this (pics below)


If you want a modification, let me know.

I am even tempted to just go for an apartment or detached flat /building in the heart of the mainland or Lekki but they all seem to be on the high price.

If I'm to advice you - IF and IF your budget is not UP-TO 40m forget LEKKI - AJAH AXIS (even if its a bungalow you plan to build)....

for 20m look towards the outskirt of Ikorodu, where you can get a land less than or equal to 5m, then build with 15m (subject to your design type)

He is right Sir.
You are mixing-up Bulding Approval Vs. C-of-O.

Building Approvals will impact the TYPE of Building it was granted for.
C.of.O will impact just the OWNERSHIP of the land.

Hello house

please I need assistance

Need to get a property in lagos but the location is an issue to me.

I want a place i plan to move into within 1-3 years.

I dont fancy extreme ends of lagos irrepecstive of the direction.

i am a first timer

who can advice me on what to do?

one mind is saying i should go for an apartment, another wants me to build from scratch

wifey prefers ikorodu if we ever settle for extreme ends but for the fear of bad roads/insecurity while i prefer ibeju lekki but for the fear of flood. (both within an estate)

We both want mainland proper but lands/properties there are scarce and expensive with the issue of omonile and other fees if we eventually see where we can afford.

Can anyone advice me here?

Thanks

WHAT'S YOUR BUDGET? I'm not into properties, but it would help to give better advice

Hmm... the CofO is issued against the land and not the building, so it has nothing to do with residential or commercial nature of the building. It is the building permit that specifies what type of build has been approved.


FOR THE PURPOSE OF NOT MISLEADING ANY1 cc: mobileboy, PLEASE READ THE ARTICLE ON THE LINK.

C/O has EVERYTHING to do with LAND USE (residential, commercial) and it's even tied to a name - meaning if I have a C/O on a land and sell it, the new buyer CANNOT get his building approval without my help...

Good morning Engineers and QS in the house.

Kindly help a sister with the estimate for this commercial build. Location is Lagos.

I need bulk pack figure for each stage of the contract.

Suggested breakdown could be:

1. Foundation/Substructure
2. Superstructure
3. Slab
4. Roofing
5. Mechanical/Electricals/Plumbing
6. *Finishing (Intetnal)
7. **External Finishing
8. Building Approval/community settlement

*Finishing includes _Windows, Doors, Burglar Bar, Borehole, Overhead tank, Ceiling, Balustrades etc._

**External Finishing includes _Septic tank, Interlocking tiles, Fence, Gate, Gatehouse..._

1. The build is sitting on a half plot.

2. This is expected to be a commercial project and ROI is key. So responsible cost cutting advice is welcome.

3. This is a crowdfunded project hence the need to clarify cost to non-technical members

depending on roof and finishing choices - I'm looking at 40m - 50m on low budget

Testimony Time

Words fail me to express my gratitude to Gbadexy for being a shining light in the midst of the darkness I have seen from suppliers and artisans throughout my period of building my house.

I had watched and followed his comments for over two years.He supplied me basecoats and paints from lagos to Minna.He offered to share the tranportation cost with me by 50% and gave me extra base coats.
When there was a delay,he assured me of getting another supply if that one failed.When I eventually got the Painting material ,he introduced a painter who managed the paints and even developed a different colour from to give my house the uniqueness we never expected.
Thank you Gbadexy!!!
My God will surprise you and very soon too.

Worthy of Mention is Saydfact!
Always a phone call away answering questions and giving counsel.You have become more than an online friend sir, You are a brother!

He supplied all my electrical materials without issues.
He is someone I can always recommend.

Rotech77
You are one of a kind sir.
Even though I couldn't eventually use his service due to constraints beyond me, he answers my questions promptly.
I am sure we will still do things together very soon.

My water tank stand is standing beautifully done because of your counsel.You told me things to look at for and how to bargain properly.

Residential, 3 floor (ground floor, 1st and 2nd floor)


It's a 60 by 40ft land, the total number of flats may not be more than 4

To confess, if I can have a way around it I don't think I'm psychologically and financial ready to start spending heavily on some documents when the seller sold it at high price because he claims to have spent heavily to get the c of o, now it's like the c of o he has (and raised price because of) is useless

THAT C/O makes it worse for you to approve.... ie the fact it's not in your name adds about 300k or more to the approval fees....

The 2m - 3m tag on the approval should be true........ Our Government are making it practically impossible to approve buildings (with multiple taxation) ALSO check the the C/O was issued for residential permit not commercial.

Omonjoe:
I have read some reviews about @money121 here and I was at times doubtful if they were real! Well, I decided to give him a try on my roofing project and here is my story;

I contacted @money121 (CEO Imran roofing) on WhatsApp to let him know about my project and he asked for the roofing plan which I sent and he gave me a rough estimate pending when the wood work is completed and the actual measurement can be done. Two weeks after the wood work was done and he then asked me to send him actual measurement so he can get load the right quantity of materials to my site in Ekpoma Edo state. I sent a local guy around Ekpoma who is also a roofer to take the measurement and he sent me the sqm.

Sending the measurements to @money121 he told me those measurements where just too much judging from the plan I sent him earlier. This arouse my interest in @money121! Because he could have charged me with those measurements and no one will know about it. He offered to send his boy down to Ekpoma to take the measurement and behold his measurement was way less than what the other roofer sent!.

We agreed on the payment terms that I pay a deposit of 2.3M before he will load the materials to Ekpoma but I forgot I have 1M daily limit in my bank. After I transferred the 1M to him, I told him of the situation, to my surprise @money121 loaded the materials that morning and sent them to Ekpoma with his boys without waiting for me to complete the initial deposit of 2.3M.

Today the roofing is completed and I would want to let everyone know that @money121 (Imran roofing) is one of the most honest Nigerian businessman I have seen and his professionalism is second to none....keep up the good work @money121 you have just won me over!

money121 where my cut - abi I wan chop alone

God bless people keeping it real

Baba, the koko is “A loud mind is greater than a loud mouth.”

What I see almost everywhere in Nigeria is ‘problem talk.’

It is a conversation that focuses heavily on the details of an issue without ever actually producing a solution.

If the regular conversations we have here is a road then problem-talk is a roundabout we drive on forever.

Problem Talks sounds like this:

Nigerians are bad.
Contractors are terrible.
Architects are saucy.
Suppliers are unfaithful.
Govt is useless.
In 2002 (before corona grin),things were better...

Talking about problems ain’t bad but getting stuck in the cycle of problem talk is.

A week before I read your post, I started working on an idea for mobile app and website - I'm still on it but weighing my options...

God Bless

It’s indeed a very sorry case. That’s why I’m more focused on construction hires these days.

Terrible people everywhere!

I think something can be done to stop all these issues if we really want to.

_____
We have the people right here. We just need to build a system that works - even if it’s for a fee.
We can build apps for construction estimation. We can build proper site for project management. We can setup sites for supplier/tradespeople/artisans/contractors/builders verification.

We keep talking about these issues but I can’t really see any concrete action to stop it.

thanks for the obervation but that area is like that when it's raining. I have my plans for the floor when it's dry season. All the water dries up during that period , fence will be up, I will fill, floor and channel the compound water outside.

Even before the high price, I got 900k for long span but I don't like it. That building is big small, na 4 bedroom flat o


OK.... Good you have a plan.... normally this plan works while the area is not fully populated - once everyone around builds there houses and fences and roads, that's when the water issues begin....

My advice is, THE COMMUNITY shd build a BIG PROPER STORM DRAIN, to limit it's effect...
