Kuna watu wana discourage wale wengine ,they post an on going construction building and they increase the prices ,mtu anapost ka nyumba ka 800k anasema hadi hapo 3.5m zimeenda !!!!!!
Pliz give us a break ,Construction depends on many factors and if u ignore them a house that can cost 1.2m itaenda hadi 3m this are the factors u should consider when building.
1.HOW U PURCHASE YOUR BUILDING MATERIALS MATTERS ALOT.
U have a mjengo and u start buying material in small quantity the price of your house itaenda juu Coz buying 5 bags of cements and paying for transport increases transportation cost ,people who buy in bulk has an advantage coz even the Cement supplier can deliver for free ,if u buy 150 bags u can buy straight from the factory.
2.HUMAN LABOUR MATTERS ALOT
Ukileta mafundi and they exaggerate the labour cost u will end up building two houses yako na ya fundi ,eg when digging Septic tank look for cheap labour kuna some guys who can take 1500 per Feet while some will ask for 3k per feet Cheza kama wewe go for cheap best .
Things like Wiring be very Careful coz ukicheza they will steal your wires and and items utaweka wiring kwako na kwa fundi.
Things like metal hii chuma ya Rental take care nowadays chuma ni gold .
Also on labour please it require Total supervision ,ukicheza kazi ya 5 days watafanya na 15 days and u will pay for it.
3. TIMBER ROOFING WOODS
U can look for a blue gum tree somewhere negotiate and get a power saw to cut them ,u will save almost 40% on roofing cost .Wood is one of most expensive commodities in building nowadays if u cut the cost of wood u save a lot.
4. TRUST WORTH FUNDIS
60% of fundis will con u or mislead u ,they will even steal your material be on alert ,Be available or have a trustees why utanunua cement 50 they will use 35 and sell 15
Things like tiles and other ceramics and sanitarys try and get them from industrial area from manufacturers void local hardware juu ya exaggerated prices.
Avoid buying them from local hardware go to the mabati companies negotiate they will give u discounts and Free transport.
Some fundis are bogus they waste everything from Cement sand and ballast ,be an economist DON’T LET FUNDIS waste your hard earned resources be strick.
So members before u post a house and u add an inflated ,exaggerated prices and Quotes jua kwa hii group kuna wajanja they will do the same house with half of what u used.
