Many people desire to make the bold step of moving out of a rental property to their own and I see many search for how much does it cost to build a 4 bedroom house in Kenya? Several people also offer to share ideas on just how much does it cost to build a 4 bedroom house in Kenya. This is a good move considering that you need as much information as possible before starting a construction project.

In this article, I will not major of this main question, how much does it cost to build a 4 bedroom house in Kenya, but rather I will tell you some of the information you need to find which will help you achieve your ultimate goal of having your own house. 

  • Location

When contemplating building a house, whether it’s a three bedroom or a two bedroom house in Kenya, you need to think of location. The location will affect the source of materials and cost. If you want to build a house in Machakos, you need to find where you will source materials from to minimize the transportation cost. You may have a place in mind where you can source for materials but if you add transportation cost, it becomes more expensive than a local source.

  • Materials

Secondly, you need to understand the area where you are doing your project. This will help you understand the kind of workmanship required or the most appropriate materials ideal for a place. Consult with your house builder Kenya to ensure you pick the right materials for your location but also within your budget.

  • Project Cost

The third aspect when looking for information about how much does it cost to build a 4 bedroom house in Kenya is the project cost. I have seen people building a three bedroom house using Ksh.2M with a total built area of 120 square meters. I have also seen a 120 square meters 3 bedroom house costing a whooping Ksh.4.5M. What brings such variance?

The construction cost of a house is largely dependent on design of the house, sizes of the rooms and the materials used. If you use machine cut stones, you will spend more than a person who have used normal bricks. If you use sophisticated house design, you expect to have a lot of materials used. If the sizes of the rooms are larger, the quantity of materials used will be more.

Lastly, when thinking of a building a house, find a professional contractor to guide you with the materials, sizes of the rooms and most importantly, how to achieve your desired house with the available funds. I don’t encourage clients to start a project and finish six years later because of piecemeal work. Find a honest construction company in Kenya who is able to understand your limit and need and help you work out something satisfactory but also achievable with the available funds.
