How to build a house? Just follow these steps!
‘How to get started with construction?’ Most new homeowners worry about this one detail. Small mistakes during construction could give rise to a very tense situation. By giving you an easy-to-follow guide on house construction, we hope to relieve some stress you might experience during construction. We will detail every step from laying the foundation to interior design. These are the steps in house construction.
Step one: Soil Analysis
The very first thing you have to do before beginning construction is soil analysis to identify the type on soil in the plot and to determine its stability. If the soil is packed loosely, the soil should be dug and compacted. If the soil is too densely packed, it should be dug using heavy machinery to make it softer and easier to work with.
Step two: Architectural Design
The second step is to obtain the services of an architect or engineer. They will design a structural model and plan for your new house and present it to you for your consideration. The designer could identify potential problems that might hinder construction. You should discuss your needs and expectations with the designer so that they may be incorporated into the design. These could include the number of rooms you would need and their layout. Before construction begins, you should ensure that the design has been approved.
Step Three: Utilities
When building a house, you should plan for necessary utilities like water, sewage, and electricity. In case of greater than expected use, you should make plans for additional water storage, possibly a backup electricity line. These things should be planned out carefully during the design period.
Step Four: Laying the Foundation
For all practical purposes, the construction period only begins once the foundation is laid. The foundation could take some time to set. Once the foundation sets completely, the outer walls can be constructed.
Step Five: Reinforcement
Once the outer walls, ceilings, and floors have been reinforced, you should start working on plumbing and electrical wiring.
Step Six: Inner structure
Once the outer structure is constructed, construction on the inner structure should be started. This step includes initial paintwork, laying floorboards or marble tiles, parquetting, etc. The finishing touches on the plumbing, electrical works, installing doors and windows should be done during this step. This step indicates the completion of construction.
Step Seven: Finishing construction
Although construction has completed, the house may look like it is still under construction and a little drab and dirty. The contractor conducts a thorough inspection and hands over the house to you.
Step Eight: Decorating
Once every step of construction has been completed, you can begin decorating the house with the colors of your choice. You can mix and match different colors and patterns make your house look how you want.
If you follow these steps, you can see your construction to completion and be able to tackle every obstacle you might face.
