Once you overcome the first hurdle of building a new house by saving up enough funds for the house, the next move will always be envisioning the plan of the house itself. At times the thought to doing this will make you so happy and exciting, eager to have this or that type of rooms and so on. So it’s easy to omit some little but important parts of a house plan. In this article, we will go through some of these mistakes that you need to keep a tag on so as to fully appreciate your newly built home at the end.
1. Absence of a Flow
Flow is a crucial part of a house plan which is the ease with which one can move from room to room in a house or building. Nothing can be more frustrating than living in a house where you will have to navigate a lot of confusing turns and checks before getting to a target room. It is important that while you add all the dream features in your house plan, don’t forget to plan out how the flow in the house should be implemented.
2. Low Budget
It is not new that people can start a house development but ends up not actually finishing up. Of course there are many reasons why this may occur. For instance an emergency which demands withdrawal from saving can occur while developing a house. Another common reason for this to happen is as a result of making costly plans without accounting for their costs. It is important to work closely with a contractor to get a good estimate of what your planned house will cost and ensure the budge is up for it.
3. Plan before land
Designing a plan before purchasing a land can be a problem. You may not be able to choose an appropriate lot, positioning for the home unless you have got the land before hand and understand what can or cannot work with the plot of land. For instance that size of the life could end up not being enough for the design of the house plan and hence forcing you to redesign and become a waste of useful time and money.
4. Absence of a contractor’s input
It is nice to have special designs and plans in mind but it is also more important that they also align with what the contractor deems possible and okay. These contractors have garnered years of experience and are in a better position to provide the best guide to achieving an amazing job.
5. Ignoring contractor’s works
It is important to monitor the works of your contractor from time to time. This is especially important during the laying of the foundations. Some contractors may end up trying to squeeze out some unusual extra profit from the budgets by securing cheaper and weaker materials at the expense of building a very robust house. Ensure the right and expected materials were obtained and everything is going just as planned. This will deter or discourage the contractor from acting in any fraudulent manner and causing you a waste of money or worst an unstable house.
