5 Things To Remember Before You Start To Build Your Dream House
1) Create a list of rooms:
Architects use the term “Program” to define what goes into your house. This term indicates the types of rooms and their numbers you want in your house. So before you start, always make a list of the rooms you want. And a short tip for this is to always make decisions about this by thinking about the future. So that you don’t have to pay extra money after a few years and change your interior.
It is the most important thing that people miss out on before starting construction. Always think about your budget which includes Construction costs(Materials, Labor, Contractor, appliances etc.), Engineering costs, Government fees etc. And the best way to do it is to add 15-20% of additional costs in the budget to keep things in control in spite of surprises.
3) How big will your house be:
The size of your house has to be balanced with your program and your budget. Your architect can play a big role in this. Always try to create a plan where you can fulfill the maximum of your needs within your budget.
4) Hire a good team for your new house:
Always remember when you’re choosing a team(Engineers, Architects, Contractors) for your dream house, you’re giving your dream in the hand of that team. So always try to choose a team whom you can trust the most. Don’t try to save money in that case. Always remember a good team will take some more money for a reason. And that reason is they will fulfill your dream in the best possible way.
Always try to look for sustainability(choosing good materials, piling, etc.) when you are building your house. If you don’t focus on sustainability then it will cost you a huge amount of money and energy in the long run. It may cost a little bit at the start. But you’ll feel it’s pleasure after a few years.
