To conserve money it is advisable to buy these materials in bulk quantity because it is usually cheaper and it saves one a lot of stress. The thing about starting a building project is that at first it may seem like a never-ending task, running out of money and other challenges may arise. But just hang in there, at the end of the day the house/building will belong to you, afterall nothing good comes easy. Congrats in advance.
