How to build a three bedroom house with Sh. 800,000

The other alternative that most people resort to is building in phases. In this article we take a look at how you can build a three bedroom house in phases, starting with a two bedroom house, and adding the third bedroom at a later stage.

The Illustrations presented are two plans showing both phases:

Phase one

A complete two bedroom house, that can be occupied and the third bedroom added at a later stage.

The house has two bedrooms one larger than the other and a shared washroom, an open plan sitting and dining, a kitchen with a kitchen door leading to the kitchen porch at the back yard. There are two ways you can build it building the complete foundation and phasing the superstructure.

This means you can build the entire foundation of the complete three bedroom house as you will need it in future, and then build the walls of phase one.

However, when planning to build in phases, it is important that you give things such as planning and budgeting high consideration because they are very important in construction.
