BUILDING ON A CONSERVATIVE BUDGET IN IBADAN.

Posted by Oluwafemi Olaogun on October 8, 2018

Ibadan is a land deemed as that of the owners and visitors. Getting a land for a building is considered an expensive affair; building the house very much more so. You don’t need to drain your energy or go knee-deep in debt, the following show ways to cut the cost:

Adequate Planning

Life itself is a plan that unfolds each day, buying a land and building a house is no different. To build a house in Ibadan on a small budget, planning must be detailed and done in good time. Also, artisans prefer the dry season which favours building construction, hence this should be taken into consideration when planning.

Ibadan property listing is a very good platform for buying lands within a specified budget range and having formidable documents to show ownership of the land.

Decisions on building materials are very important when building on a conservative budget. When budgeting for building materials, you should settle for less expensive but good quality materials like wood, tiles, flooring that fit into your budget.

Get quotations from multiple suppliers so as to get the very best quotations for the building materials you settle for. In essence, always weigh your options well and go for the best available within your budget limit.

Getting Building Designs

Getting the right design is also important and will help save a lot of money, an architect who will understand what you want to achieve will help to save cost a lot by giving a simple design. Make the best use of resources you have made available.

Monitoring

Monitoring the construction process as it progresses should not be taken for granted; this is to ensure that the materials and services paid for precisely is what is delivered to you.

Space Utilization

The design of the building should originally have taken care of spaces referred to as phantom spaces (spaces that cannot be afforded to be kept when on a thin building budget such as a garage, basement). Also that kind of house should not have 5 or 6 bedrooms as the cost of building a house increases with size. Keep your house simple, some rooms might be given more attention in terms of furnishing than the others. Also the furnishings used at the start might be simple enough to make the house fit for living, then subsequently, adding finishing touches can be done as income allows.

The same goes for furniture and fixtures, use furniture that will fit into the space you have to avoid overcrowding. Before you begin to shop, make a list of the things you need for the house, also compare cost from sellers and choose the best within your budget and living space, after, you can then begin to upgrade your fixtures and furniture.

Lastly, it is wise to reduce current living expenses, you could move to a cheaper apartment, reduce cost issued to miscellaneous, reduce monthly spending on social outings, binge eating and other things you can do without.
