Today on Guardianconstructions,i Will once again write on the Estimated cost of erecting a 3 bedroom Bungalow in Nigeria. as i have said, this is only an estimate. You are also to bear in mind that this estimate was made in January 2017 and as a result, a few changes may have occurred in terms of price.

What are the Specs Of 3 Bedroom Flat In Nigeria?

3 Bedrooms of 3600mm x 3600mm

Foundation Footings = N60,000
Foundation Wall = N200,000
German Concrete = N400,000
Total Cost For Foundation = N820,000 (It May not be upto this in some location please)

Next Stage Is Super Structure

Block work (3m High) = N700,000 (If You are Buying Blocks)
Lintel/Head course/concrete facial = N300,000
Total Cost For super Structure = N1,000,000

Next Stage Is Roofing
