Cost of Building a 4 Bedroom Bungalow in Nigeria – Setting up a building is one of the major dreams of all Nigerians; however, the process can be very daunting as many times, many don’t know where or how to start the whole process. In the article, we will highlight some of the things one should expect to face in setting up the structure of a 4-bedroom bungalow.
A 4 bedroom bungalow is a building without a structure above the ground level, unlike duplexes that have staircases that lead to rooms and apartments above ground level. A 4-bedroom bungalow, just as its name sounds, would normally have four bedrooms contained in it. The major difference between this kind of bungalow building and the 3-bedroom bungalow building is the fact that the 4-bedroom apartment has four rooms. The fourth room in this kind of building would normally serve as a guest room in many 4-bedroom bungalow apartments.
There would normally be toilets and bathroom embedded within each of the four rooms, and in many cases, an extra toilet and bathroom will be located close to the living room for guests and visitors. The 4-bedroom bungalow would also have a kitchen that’s for the use of the whole house. A 4-bedroom bungalow is a complete exquisite apartment, and many are opting for this building option because of the space it allows its owner to explore flexibility. In the following lines, we will highlight the major cost factors that come with setting up this kind of apartment in Nigeria.
Cost of Building a 4 Bedroom Bungalow in Nigeria
The cost of building a 4-bedroom bungalow is largely dependent on a lot of unstable factors in the Nigerian environment. Many of the factors that determine the cost of setting a 4-bedroom bungalow up are dependent on independent factors such as the land seller, the building contractor. We will, however, summarize the cost of setting up the 4-bedroom apartment in Nigeria as generic as possible in the following lines.
Land Acquisition and Location
The cost of acquiring land can be a very big deal in the process of setting a 4-bedroom bungalow apartment. The land upon which the building is to be set will take as much as eighty percent of the total budget of the building plan in some areas, while it will only take a little in other areas of the Nigerian nation.
The price of land is not constant throughout Nigeria, and this is because many factors determine the price of the land, which are not constant. Some lands, for example, are auctioned by the government; some are family lands, while others are industrial lands. All these entities have their effects on the price of the land. Another factor that determines the price of land in Nigeria is the area in which the land is located. Lands in areas like Lagos state are way more expensive than other areas of the Nigerian nation. We will list the average cost of acquiring lands in different regions of Nigeria in the following lines (one must, however, note that there are some exceptional cases where the price could shoot over or under the costs stated in this article).
Lands in Lagos cost between seven million Naira (NGN 7,000,000) and fifty million Naira (NGN 50,000,000).
Lands in Abuja revolve around the axis of five million Naira (NGN 5,000,000).
Lands in Port Harcourt cost between five million Naira (NGN 5,000,000) and fifteen million Naira (NGN 15,000,000).
In the southwestern states of Nigeria, it is generally possible to get a parcel of land for five hundred thousand Naira (NGN 500,000).
Lands in the northern regions of Nigeria also generally cost around five million Naira (NGN 5,000,000).
Lands in the eastern regions of Nigeria cost around three million Naira (NGN 3,000,000).
Getting a Building Plan
After the land acquisition, the next phase of the building process of a 4-bedroom apartment is getting the building plan drawn and approved by the relevant government agencies. An architect will normally draw the building plan, and just like the land, there are many independent architects whose charges vary accordingly. On average, it would normally cost between sixty thousand Naira (NGN 60,000) and six hundred thousand Naira (NGN 600,000) to get a good 4-bedroom bungalow plan drawn in Nigeria.
The building plan is the one that determines the entirety of the structure of the building, and all the major features that will accompany the building.
Asides getting the building plan drawn, one major factor that comes with this step of setting the 4-bedroom bungalow structure up is getting the building plan approved by the government agency in charge of town planning and urban development. Getting the plan approved is a very big deal; however, many overlook this step. A building that’s not approved by the relevant government agencies can be demolished without any compensation to the owner of the building because its plan is not a part of the government-approved plan for the area.
Digging Foundation and Soakaway
The first actual building part of the process of setting up the 4-bedroom bungalow structure is the foundation digging. This part of the building is a very important one, as the foundation is the layout upon which the whole building lays. Depending on the area and labour cost, it would normally cost between six hundred and fifty thousand Naira and one million, seven hundred thousand Naira to complete this stage (soak-away and septic tank digging inclusive).
Raising Building to Lintel
Many factors go into raising the building up to the lintel level. This stage of the 4-bedroom bungalow building process will averagely require between two million Naira (NGN 2,000,000) and three million, five hundred thousand Naira (NGN 3,500,000) to complete.
It would normally take between a million Naira and four million Naira to roof a 4-bedroom bungalow apartment. The cost variation of the roofing is majorly because there are a lot of roofing methods out there, and the choice of the building owner is the major determinant in this stage.
The finishing stage of the building is one that determines the final outlook and presentation of the building. The cost spent on the finishing of the 4-bedroom bungalow would normally depend on the finishing choices of the building owner. On average, it would cost between three and ten million Naira to furnish the finishing of the building.
