I need step by step instructions(A WRITTEN TUTORIAL), including the necessary math calculations for building a four room concrete building(using 'hollow bricks' also known as cement blocks) and cement, with one bedroom, one living room, one bathroom and one kitchen, for use on a farming location. When i say 'necessary math' for example when erecting a pillar, i need to learn the logic of how much iron rods to use, and WHY, how much cement to use and why, so for each step the logic must be clearly explained and explained in a way that an intelligent person with 10th standard education (who is very motivated) can understand it and implement it. This should include necessary plumbing, electrical etc to be fully functional. It should be low cost but safe and sturdy and able to withstand a minor earthquake. Please note that knowing how to do this is different from knowing how to teach and explain all this. Please bid only if you are located in India or Pakistan, since the construction is in India, and you have to be familiar with conditions on the subcontinent. The total square foot area of the structure is 1000 sq feet, and it will also include an outside car parking shed. The shed must be made with GI pipe framework, with a tiled roof (not a metal roof) , size of the shed is 350 sq ft, the pillars must be only on ONE side, so you will have to calculate the size and gauge of the GI pipes for the support pillars, and also explain why (meaning the math). The roof will have 1300 roofing tiles each tile weighing 0.75 kg, 9 inch x 6 inch, and the supporting framework underneath the tiles weighs around 250kg of GI pipes. The main thing about this project is the ability to explain the math used , NO GUESS WORK AT ALL PLEASE

General notes: I need help from a civil engineer to create grading and drainage plans for 1 lot in Sunnyvale, California. Lot size is 5500 square feet - small lot for a single family new construction house. The project is to demolish an existing and build a new building. Planning/design application has been approved and we are in the Building Permit phase, which requires a grading/drainage plan. I'm attaching a site plan. Ignore the pictured slopes as they are wrong. You will need to communicate with my surveyor and provide your requirements to him - for example, you can ask him to survey the site and picture correct slopes, provide topography with X foot contours, land elevations, etc. I can also provide a soil report. If you are not familiar with California Codes, you will need to research them to do the job correctly. Job details: - Prepare final grading, drainage and erosion control plans for approval by the local agency. - The plans shall include driveway layout and profile; limits of cut and fill slope; finish grade contours; drainage system; retaining wall layout if needed; and construction elevations for building pad, finish floor, and drainage swale at open space areas. - The services shall include hydrology and hydraulic calculations; earthwork quantity calculations; and engineer's estimate for construction costs. The plans and calculations shall be prepared in accordance with the local agency's requirements.
