    1. It is hard to make an estimate without having the building plan you know.

      You also consider the area
      price of materials
      cost of workmanship and several other factors

    2. Please u don't know to upload plan here but the dimension is 39ft/82ft. 2/3bedroom up and 2/3bedoom down

    3. You can upload to so I see what you're talking about.

  3. Thank you sir,

  5. That's why this is just an estimate my dear. Also, the prices as you know isn't static. When i bought tiles, I spent that amount to but tiles for the entire 2 bedroom flat.

  6. What us cheapest cost to build a moderate one bedroom self contain(room and parlour)

  7. Roofing and labour can never be #400,000, its very very low you're wrong on that. The wood for the roofing alone will take that #400,000 what about the roofing sheets?

    1. My dear I know prices have gone up.
      Thanks for your opinion though, but then if you were to cost this project, what would be your quotation and charge?

  13. Thars why it is just an estimate dear
    Also Note that it could cost more in some other parts of the country too
