Values are those ideas which we, as members of society, have about what is right and what is wrong. A society without values will be chaotic and eventually get destroyed. Values keep a society decent, progressive, safe and attractive. Generally, the values relevant to house construction are those values which we must possess as members of society. They include:

  • Honesty
  • Cooperation
  • Self reliance
  • Unity
  • Tolerance
  • Love
  • Respect
  • Peace
  • Humility
  • Happiness
  • Freedom
  • Responsibility
  • Discipline
  • Hard work
  • Respect for quality, and accountability
  1. Honesty (accountability, accuracy). Builders, property developers, bricklayers, building materials merchants and all those involved in the construction of houses, must be honest. They should use materials of high quality.
  2. Self reliance (hard work, skill and discipline). Nigeria has many qualified people in the construction industry. Some of them are engineers, electricians, bricklayers, builders, surveyors, architects and plumbers. They should work hard and use their skills to construct good houses.
  3. Cooperation and unity. At construction sites, all workers should cooperate in order to construct good houses for the people.
  4. Tolerance, love, respect and peace. When we love others, we would treat them the way we want them to treat us. Builders and construction workers should show love for the owner of the house by being honest in the way they handle the construction of the house.
  5. Construction workers should do their work with joy. Also, those in charge should keep the workers happy by paying them well and promptly
