Solar power can be proposed for this guest house.

    Dear sir,
    1. Based on my project experience, it cost more to built the car porch underground. There will be additional cost for earthworks and reinforced concrete retaining wall. What I have proposed is car park on ground with direct entry. Suggest car park to be at ground level and not basement.
    2. My intention was to serve both building with shorted pipe runs from the buildings to the biogas chamber. However, this can be explored further to accommodate your thoughts.
    3. Main door facing direct to gate can be explored further. I will need more time to amend and submit. The deadline for the contest is today. I will need another 2 to 3 days to amend and submit.
    4. Please note, I will need to adjust the construction cost based on African construction Guid – The proposed cost per square meter for this building is approximately R 4000- R 5000 per square meter.
    Thanks and regards,

    1. Can the car porch be underground? Would it be less costly then?
    2. I wish the biogas to be behind the main house
    3. I wish the main door of the main house to directly face the gate. Can the one-bedroom then be further away from the line of the main gate?
