- Nisha Injendi said the house took her seven years to complete and cost her KSh 1.5 million to completion
- Injendi revealed that the house gobbled up to 200 bags of cement, 86 iron sheets and over 9,000 bricks
A beautiful Kenyan lady has celebrated her success after building a five-bedroom house for her parents.
Nisha Injendi said it took her about seven years to revive her parent’s dream of owning a permanent house.
Cost of building a 5-bedroom house
Nisha shared a photo of a complete permanent house online with a caption that read ‘I love home”.
“When my parents used the bricks meant to build their house for my high school education fees, I shuttered their dream… But when God blessed me I decided to make their dream come true,” read Nisha’s Facebook post in part.
In an exclusive interview with TUKO.co.ke, Nisha revealed that the house gobbled up a whopping KSh 1.5 million.
She said from the little savings she made while working as a hotelier (chef), she was able to gather the house materials in bids.
“The house cost, including materials, labour, doors and windows… everything to where it is now, is KSh 1.5 million.
“Though, I started to buy all the materials first in bids, taking like seven years. The construction of the house took around three months,” said Nisha.
Building materials and cost
Nisha noted that the house used 200 bags of cement, about 9,000 bricks, and 86 iron sheets.
“In terms of bricks, I made my own at home, about 8000-9000 bricks. I paid KSh 4 per brick so it was not that costly,” she added.
The lady, who hails from Vihiga County, disclosed that the house has a sitting room, dining room and veranda, “which looks like a sitting room on its own.”
The chef encouraged young people to work hard, save a little they make and never forget their parents.
“Number one, youth should put God first in whatever they are doing. Don’t lose hope, be as smart and have patience, and hope that nothing stops you from what you wish to achieve.
“Save a little you make, life requires working hard and smart… remember your parents, they sacrificed a lot for us,” she advised.
Kisii man builds KSh 250k house for grandmother
Nisha’s story is similar to that of a youthful Kisii man who made his grandmother proud after building her a simple four-roomed semi-permanent house.
TUKO.co.ke reported that Eugene Osano shared beautiful photos of the house in the village, showing progress from when he started constructing it until its completion.
Osano revealed he used 60 bags of cement, 2.5 lorries of sand, five (seven-feet) rolls of chain links and 39 iron sheets to construct the house.
“I built my grandma this semi-permanent house, it cost slightly over KSh 250,000,” he captioned his post on the Dream House and Building Forum.
Kenyans on social media congratulated Osano for his kind gesture, with some indicating they were motivated to start similar projects.
