Having information about a thing always helps. So even if you are all
set to build a home of your own, information is the key. Start
collecting information. Talk to at least 2 people, who have recently
built homes of their own (these people could be your friends, family,
relatives, or neighbours).
Meet at least two architects, raj mistrys, and contractors. Find the nearest place, where masons assemble.
You can also start a diary to collect all this information at one place. Check for the prices of the regular building materials such as prevalent local cement prices. Look for the types, brands, sanitary ware, flooring options, plumbing, etc. Buying all this stuff from a wholesale market may give you substantial savings.
On the basis of all your research about the products and their prices, make an initial budget. And keep some money – about 10% of this initial budget – for unplanned expenses. You never know when an unplanned thing (expense) comes your way.
Building a home is not a one man thing; many home building experts – such as architects, engineers, contractors, plumbers, electricians, raj mistries, masons, painter, etc., - need to be hired. And you need to make sure you hire the experienced ones so that your home looks beautiful and feels strong. An experienced architect may also help you cut back on your budget, without compromising on quality. He can also help you find a good engineer and contractor for your construction project. However, make sure you ascertain their fees/charges beforehand, and get that on a paper for a smooth construction.
The building materials must be of supreme quality; after all, we all want our homes last for generations. Be it the roofs, walls, or flooring, make sure you do not try to save a few bucks by opting for poor quality materials. For example, you may see a good amount of difference in the cement prices by different brands. The ordinary cement will not cost you as much as cement that is manufactured in the top cement manufacturing plants and that adheres to the toughest quality standards prevalent in the industry.
Last, but not the least, planning is crucial when building a home; remember having a plan is much better than starting out without a plan. So be it arranging finance for the home building or hiring home building experts, make sure you have things noted down in a diary.
Cement plays a crucial role in how a structure behaves after 4 or 5 years. When building a home, you must make sure you purchase best quality cement that has been manufactured in the top cement manufacturing plants. Using high quality cement will ensure your home lasts for generations.MicrosoftInternetExplorer402DocumentNotSpecified7.8Normal0
