Your home shows what you are as a person as it is considerably one of the best impressions you can put over a person if the house is built with love and dedication.
Whenever you go for a trip you always do your homework right and do all the research prior to your trip to avoid any mishaps in future. Likewise, you would want to bring up the best possible plan to build your dream house instead of initiating carelessly. Below are some of the prerequisites that will prove to come in handy while building your dream house with BRIKS Design-Build group:
Set Your Goals
Building a home is all about setting goals. You should be clear about what you want to achieve before the construction starts. Numerous questions arise at this time and you should be able to answer them all to give life to your house that you are planning on to build. These questions include;
- What do you want to achieve?
- Where should your house be located?
- What’s the budget required to fulfill your demands?
- Is there a plan B if plan A fails?
If you have answers to all these questions then congratulations! You are all set to move ahead.
Create a Budget
Creating a budget should already be in your list of goals but due to its importance we have mentioned it separately. For obvious reasons, having a fancy house sounds pleasing and everybody wants it but this does not mean that you oversee the amount of money you can afford to spend.
Initially, you would want to make an overall list of the things that are required to build a house. These include things like the cost of land, cost of construction material, cost of engineering and designing and most importantly the fittings and furniture you want to put in your house. As a piece of advice it is always suggested to use a program like Excel to maintain a list of expenditure as you can also edit it in case of any changes in plan or cost. BRIKS allows you to complete your project in your decided budget so you don’t run out of cash without completing your construction.
Find a Suitable Location
Location is undoubtedly one of the most important aspects of your house. It decides how you want to live and which area you choose to live. You might want your house to be near a sea so you can get an oceanic view from your window. Or you might want to live in middle of dense vegetation. All this is possible if your pockets can support it. Anyway, you need to find the best possible location according to your budget. There are some features that you should lookout for in your desired location like;
- ease of access,
- Availability of services like grocery shops and hospitals etc.
- type of people in your neighborhood
Finding the Right Team
We would suggest you to collect a team of highly experienced proffesionals as it practically is the right choice.

Likewise, the job of an engineer is also crucial and this is because without him the structural calculations cannot be carried out. So why worry more?
