With the current state of the country and the insanely high house prices, not everyone is in a position to buy their own properties. Sadly, many people will never in their lives own a house.
However, one man decided to make a plan after a bank told him he could not afford to buy a house in the suburbs.
Instead of giving up on his dream crib, he decided to renovate his township home and turn it into a mansion.
Taking to Facebook, Sandile Hadebe showed off the progress he and his bae, Gabi, have been making with their home.
He captioned the post:
"31st July VS 31st August 2020... The bank said we cannot afford it in the Burbs, so we decided to build it in the township for cash within a month. Hadebe Residence."

"Well done Sandile. Your story is inspirational."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported on a young woman who is building her own house. Zama Philisiwe Zungu went viral in Women's Month when photos surfaced online showing her building an additional room on her home.
The 26-year-old inspired South Africans with her skills in construction and she proved women have what it takes to succeed in a man's world.
Zungu made the decision to become an engineer in 2014 and her father was a major motivation for her.
"My dad was my inspiration since he is also a builder," she said, adding: "Also I was inspired by the lack of women in this industry, since it was labelled as a man's job. I took the challenge knowing very well there are quite a number of challenges I'd encounter in a male-dominated career."
