A Nigerian builder sparks mixed reactions as he unveils a two-bedroom house he allegedly built with only N5M.
A Twitter user identified as @AbrahamMacHILLS set tongues wagging on the micro-blogging platform following the cost spent on raising a mini-bungalow.
The builder took to the platform to promote his craft while stating that he is available to build the same structure for anyone who already owns a piece of land.
“With 5M, I can build this 2 bedroom house for you, if you already have a land,” he wrote in a tweet.
His claim, however, caused a buzz as thousands of users flood his page to argue how impossible it is to build such a structure with just N5M.
Reactions trailing 2 bedroom house built with N5M
Meenorah said: “Can we be civic and ethical, I want to believe this is all cruise. From my little project management experience in this industry, this is NEVER possible, I don’t need BOQ or archi plans, from this little elevation it’s some Internet cruise here.”
mrlurvy penned: “I am not doubting you o, but I doubt 5m will get this.”
PrinceSomorin opined: “It’s impossible to build this for N5M. In my opinion and experience. Attached first frame is N2M as at last years prices. We know things are crazy now prices wise. 2nd frame is current status.”
Mrsly_69 penned: “So many modifications neede. I don’t need to step out from the garage before I can get into the building! Not hustling with the stairs too! I like this ! And I need 10 units by December”
UNCLE_AJALA added: “1. To me, 5m Naira can’t build this. 2. If you can post the plan of this building with sections, I can calculate what it will cost to build it for you. 3. Can you pls show the interior, let’s see how many toilets you have, your kitchen finishes, pop or pvc design, wardrobes, or interior finishes are not part of the 5m Naira? 4. If you can take us through the process of achieving this with 5m Naira, with materials schedules, labour & profit, I will give you 200,000 for your time..:”
