7 Things you MUST avoid in Building your own House

7 THINGS THAT CAN STOP YOU FROM BUILDING YOUR OWN HOUSE

  1. Waiting to take your share in your father’s property as a landlord-in- waiting or a landlord by inheritance.
  2. Thinking that your salary is too small to build a house.
  3. Believing that you have too many family obligations.
  4. Hoping that someday things will become cheaper.
  5. Waiting until you receive a big salary or a promotion.
  6. Thinking that it is too stressful. (A house of three-bedroom flat can be started by erecting a room.)
  7. Hoping that your employer will give you a free house.

 

7 THINGS YOU SHOULD NOT DO IN OWNING YOUR OWN HOUSE

  1. Never discuss your building project with people who are negative or anybody who has no serious plan of building a house (e.g. inherited landlord).
  2. Never be afraid or ashamed to start little.
  3. Never think that it is impossible to complete your own building project. Fear leads to failure and death.
  4. Never wait until you have the money to complete your house of choice.
  5. Never misuse any naira that comes into your hands when your building project is on.
  6. Never stay too long visiting your building project. Regular visits motivate you.
  7. Never rely on anybody to handle your building project.
