Residential Construction

5 things you should take into account when building your residence

To have our own home is a dream we all share, for that reason when that so very important moment comes is important to consider all our choices so we can obtain the best value for all that effort and dedication.

  1. Location: it is very important that when electing the construction site for your home you take into account all the specific needs of your family. It’s a good idea to consider the distances you’ll have to cover on a daily basis. Its recommended to look for a site that is not far from home, near schools and hospitals. You may also care about the proximity of shopping malls or convenience stores.
  2. Public services:  you got to make sure that the zone you are building on offers all the basic services: electricity, telephone, water and sewage.
  3. Size of residence: once you have decided for the right place is time to start planning. First of all you have to ask yourself, how many rooms? You should think about the number of people that conform your family and not to forget that there´s always the chance of new members to come, also you should keep in mind future unexpected visits like uncles, nephews, cousins and else.
  4. Number of floors: now is time to ask yourself if you want a one or two stories home. If you got a big property you might take advantage of it and build a big one story house, but  if it is not or if you want to build a garden or a swimming pool you may prefer two stories.
  5. Materials: in order to start with construction you need to know what kind of material you want your home to be built with. It’s important for you to have in mind: time and budget. If you are tight on time and/or budget you can choose modular or prefabricated houses. If, on the other hand you desire to take your time so everything is right for your taste, you may start to think in how to use different materials for every part of your house. You can build concrete walls; decorate your façade with flagstones bricks or tiles.
