Having a house built and owned by one is a major leap and something desired by many. Building a home requires a lot of attention.
Readymade or customized
You would need to work with an architect to decide on the design of the house. You can choose from readymade design or you can come up with your own design and talk with an architect over it. Especially on a land with different shapes and sizes you would need to closely discuss with an architect as he would be able to listen and make suggestion.
Usually, an original house will cost more than an already designed house, but having an original will make you feel great as it is something you came up with.
Know what you need
Before you proceed with anything you have to decide on how many rooms you want, how many floors are you going to build and other necessary things. Avoid mistakes like having excess rooms as this would only lead to unnecessary cost. Talk with your architect and discuss ideas.
If you are always expecting family and friends who spend holidays with you then you would need guest bedrooms.
Allocate your space
Decide where your living room, your dining room and your bedrooms are located. South and south west positions are best to locate your living room as this part usually brings a lot of sunlight.
Another thing you can do is to divide the area into day and night zones, the space that you would use during day and night time. You can have the living, dining room, kitchen the guest bedroom and bathroom in the day zone and the master bedroom,kids’ bedroom and bathroom in the night zone. If you are looking to have a home gym allocate space for that as well.
Get the right people
It is very important to hire the right people because if you are someone who has no experience in building you need to work with someone who is trust worthy and does a good job so you can get your dream home. Hire a sustainable home builder with whom you can communicate easily and is organized.
Get the right materials
You need your house to last for a long time, therefore you need to use material that would stand sturdy and strong even in harsh conditions. You can choose materials like ceramic, concrete and wood. Mineral wool, foamed polystyrene are insulations materials that which can be used.
Rules and regulations
Each place has rules and regulations that need to be followed. Research into this and follow your government regulations as this would save you from penalties in the future. Usually, the architect will handle this but it is better for you to be aware as well.
These are some things that need to be considered. Building a new home is not easy but it is a place you will be building for your family so this thought should be keeping you excited and happy.
