brabus these points are spot on especially number 8 and 9. People forget what they promised deliberately or unintentionally. The record will help put things straight. I’m book marking this page and it’s a must read for every intending house owner.
Thank You 🙏🏻
Thanks a lot @brabus for this, I am about commencing a project and I been doing my research and budgeting as I want to have a good idea of where I am going. These points actually just brighten and gave me more energy to perfect things before commencing. Thanks a lot.

Thanks mank1234 Teemaye its good you are planning your project in the right directions and scope, kindly share the plan and soil test of this project with likely scope
Teemaye @mastermovic is here to help you with your structure.
brabus Go for cheaper options of certain items, for example, instead of actual granite top in your kitchen you could opt for a tile lookalike. Whilst the finish isn’t quite as deluxe, it still does the job and will save you a couple of naira.
naa so oooo
Thanks mastermovic, waiting for the architectural draft, sanding filling will commence today/tomorrow, depending on how well we are able to clear root debris and plastics that were thrown into the plot be neighboring occupants from the plot. I was advise to sand fill before soil test.
brabus Thanks a lot Boss
Teemaye who gave this advice? To sandfill before soil test?
Teemaye pls do soil test before sand filling the soil test will gve recommendations on soil improvement and level of compaction and some firm will do the soil test again after the recommendations to determine the safe bearing capacity
brabus Engineer (but, he is the one to handle the project though)
mastermovic Hmmmmm, thanks a lot, really appreciated, let me start putting a stop work order to the sand filling already planned for tomorrow.
mastermovic Please can you recommend a Geologist ASAP like tomorrow to come and perform the soil test?.
Once their samples are collected, can they still continue with the sand filling tomorrow?, please advise. Thanks
mastermovic Hello sir, please kindly make this a priority.
@Teemaye you can also use the forums chat function to send direct message to @mastermovic
Dont be in a rush to start. That land I’m seeing in the image you shared above needs to checked to determine safe bearing capacity and foundation type.
