A woman has shared her journey of building a home in the rural areas of the Eastern Cape, South Africa.
@MamaDee Builds a House shared photos of the unfinished home on Facebook. She is now just in her fourth year of building the home.
She said she's taking so long to build it because, most of the time, she is out of the country and only gets to continue with the building process when she's back. She added that money depletion also plays a role.
See what the house looks like
In one of her Facebook posts, she gave her social media followers an idea of what the house will have.
It will have five bathrooms, a spacious foyer, a living room, a central kitchen, five bedrooms with walk-in closets, a dining area, a family room, a pyjama lounge, a mudroom, a spacious laundry room, a spacious scullery, grilling area, screened porches and a swimming pool.
How much did she spend on building the house?
Sharing how much the building the home costs, she posted a video on YouTube detailing her expenditure.
The woman said that initially, she had set a budget of R1.5 million to build the house. However, it was not even close to the money needed.
The initial budget excluded fence, land, and miscellaneous costs. She ended up spending just a little over R2 million. She continues to add some stuff to make the hose whole.
The woman explained her reason for building the village mansion. She said she inherited the land that is her home and wants to make something generational.
