File a partition suit and take the shares as per the mutual convenience. That is it. Nothing more could help you actually. Make sure to be prepared for the court fees at the time of final decree which will be calculated on the basis of the bench mark valuation of the property.

Is your grandfather alive then he can solve it by virtue of a will if it's his self acquired property.
If not then you should proof on what basis you built the house on south side if there any agreement between your father or uncle or any will of your grandparents then you can retain your south side by showing that in court.
Thirdly if you build the house suo moto on good faith you can claim the same and have to prove the entire expenditure incurred by your father and pray to the court to make the partition accordingly. None of the son can claim the south side. But as you have possession since 9 years and built the house your father may have advantage over your uncle.
