Payment Overview by client - 1st BOQ was very incomplete

8 other offers and contracts followed - MGKB builded very

slow !! - overall 2,5 years it took to get this house done ...


But is was income for many many builders and the Kalivamuki

Family is very very happy to have this house to live in finally.

Client Mr. Goergen himself can not afford new shoes now ...

Typical quotations by Eng. George Botyo - Sourcing and Sales / MGKB Co-Director















This is how the Kakira Box Gutter House looked when Ing. Goebel was involved by the client.


The building money budget was used up already by this time, in that stage - but the house


was still in-complete and the water was leaking into the rooms ...














Lets have a closer view to the box gutter problem - that occurs when people do not want to show the iron sheets, when they want to show a big roof area - box gutters are a difficult and expensive

way to collect the rain water and to get it out at certain points. - See how difficult this is way to build is - water-tight for many years - in practice ...




















Architects have to draw in the box gutters with : length, corners, endings and openings


for that the contractors see the challenge and that they can say yes or no to contract.









>>> there is an unfinished MGKB House in Uganda that needs to be

reviewed in roof area - and that needs windows, doors, floors, electric

installation, hydraulic installation, tiles and paint ...















>>> the Kakiri Box Gutter Roof House already got some qualities
as you can see - MGKB at work - thank god for the expert that did
the plaster work - closing all scarfs, making edges shart, walls flat







just compare - it is never a good idea to build some walls more then what is shown in the plan


the plan proposed by Eng. Mugasho has to be considered ... Less is more - water want to flow











MGKB Site in Kakiri is rolling much better now - the client is going to get the roof he ordered,


Much staff on Kakiri Building Site now - we are expecting team photos next week

We have serious problems with the roof building quality


MGKB does NOT send the amount of photos it requires !


Client stopped payments because builders out of control




but then suddenly - many of the required photos arrived


the the architect and clients representative gave orders


and opend new doors towards extra mony landscape plan
















After solving that photo problem the building site speeds up and develops better

and as it is a box gutter roof house - the roof is leaking - in many locations


now you really get fun - searching the causes - we gave additional money


for some new roof sheets and insulation paint ... 


















but we never give up hope - we solve our problems - no matter how big they are
