"Land here is between KSh3 million (N16,947,615.10) and KSh4 million (N22,596,820.13) depending on how you negotiate. Construction is a bit relative because you will have some variations apart from the original cost.

The software engineer said they decided to build the 4-bedroom home to fit their young and growing family, as well as their expanding needs.
