Small houses Lagos Nigeria - There are advantages to building a small home. As the name implies, a small home is small. Hence, the very first advantage of building small houses is in the area of cost.
It cost a lot less to build a small home than to build a big spacious apartment or luxurious building. And since the cost of building a small home is also small, low income earners can do this and become proud owners of their own home sooner than later.

A quick advice for you. Do not follow the crowd.
A lot of Nigerians start out with great ideas for their home building project. The building construction starts with a bang, basically with money they have saved over the years. But unfortunately, the work stops half way and then
they struggle over subsequent years trying to complete the gigantic building project that started out brilliantly but that is now stalled by insufficient cash.
Don't fall into that trap!
Building a luxurious apartment building or mansion is everyone's fantasy. But if the reality dictates that you forsake that route, then don't be shy
to explore small homes as an option.
Yes, you love to build something you can brag about to your friends. But if you don't have the financial capability, starting out with a big house will ultimately lead to frustration.
Take my advice. Go small if your pocket says so.
