Building Three Bedroom House in Kenya: The following piece on building three bedroom house in Kenya appeared in one of the popular news sites in the country. Bizna Kenya would love to hear from you on what costs you incurred when constructing your house: Share your views below:

“A Kenyan has explained how he managed to build a three bedroom house with Ksh. 800,000.He managed to build this house for Ksh 800,000 and here is what he did.

I know for sure..with 800k unajenga nyumba ya 3bedroom na unaingia na unaishi. The problem with people here ni kugongwa. Wacheni kupeana nyumba yako kwa contractors. If u have your own plot, be a hands on kinda guy..

SEE: Building a house in Kenya: Costs and Requirements (Updated 2019)

Tafuta watu wakuchimbie msingi. That will cost you like 5k at most. Nunua materials angusha site. The most you can spend na slab ya foundation ya 3 bedroom house is 200k. Hii ni including labour. Slab ikiisha ipatie siku mbili huku unaifanyia curing.

Then unaanza courses. Fundi anafaa kujenga 120ft per day. So kama nyumba ni ya course 9, in one day inafaa akujengee course tatu. So in three days nyumba imefika kwa lintel. Hii cost yote ni kama 100k to 150k.

Then after ushakoroga lintel carpenter anaingia. Hapa sasa ndio kuna shida kulingana na mahali unatoa mbao. So jiwekee kama 200k ya roofing. Hii ni mbao na mabati na fundi. Hii roofing ikiendelea ushachomesha milango na madirisha. Hii ni kama 50k cost peke yake.

Roofing na milngo na dirisha fixed then unaanza plumbing na electrical work weka 50k. Then piga plaster hio ingine unamaliza ukiwa ndani. And that my friend is how you get involved hii mambo ya kuwachia sijui contractor ndio maana mnashtuka mtu akisema ametumia 800k kujenga a three bedroom house.”

  1. You are just dreaming my friend how on earth plumbing ya 3bedrooms can cost 50k and you didn’t state the cost of the materials

  2. Very much possible. I guess those commenting otherwise already have their 3 bedroom with high costs so they want to cover up. I AM BUILDING MINE WITH THIS COST!

  3. To plan the budget vocally is very easy and cheap… But on the ground you will find that 800k is not enough.See, many people/clients tend to think that after putting up the skeleton part of the construction(complete building without finishes) the building is now complete, but thats not the case, finishes cost alot money right from fittings (electrical and plumbing) to plastering to painting. You might spend almost double the cost of the skeleton construction just to do finishes.
    Oh and theres no mention of the drawings costs and approval fees, they also incurr cost of the 3br house…

  4. This is a serious joker who has no idea about putting up a house. You live in theoretical world. Do not cheat kenyans. Cost ya chuma, Lintel cost, Stones, sand, ballast ati fundi anajenga 120 ft na unalipa 50k watu wa mkono mabati na mbao za roof 200k you are a serious fraud. Plan ya nyumba peke yake ni pesa ngapi, approve to county neema what have you. Milangao madirisha not less than 100k anyway wewe enda jenga alf ucome tuongee.

  5. The person talks of a general construction considering good murram soils so less backfill ie hard core. But from experience give 1m. No mention of glazing. But amesema you finish while inside which is OK for a hustler.

  6. Am a contractor and it’s possible to construct such a house with 800k , location of the site,distance to Materials matter alot

  7. kplc,water and waste disposal connection fees will range from 100k to as high as 300k depending on the system used these is not in cluded on your 800k house also the consultants fees and approval fees that will be between 100k to 200k depending on your location,,,,,,,etc the write should do his research first before posting hogwash….
