Man shares challenges of building the house with Briefly News

Sifiso Chonco told Briefly News that he started building the house in July 2021 and finished it in July 2023.

"Building a house from scratch is not easy. I faced many challenges during the process, including financial issues, labour, admin and technical difficulties that I had to deal with from time to time, but I managed to pull through. This is an outstanding achievement for me! I grew up without proper housing, and no one worked.
"I've always wanted to change that situation since I started working. Despite the challenges, seeing everything working out the way I planned was the epitome of success for me. My family is also proud and happy to see my project finally end, as they have supported me throughout the process," he said.
