This article will provide you with 7 actions that you must take before the possession of your new dream home so that everything goes smoothly.
STEP 1: Choose a designer —Designing your home is a journey that starts with you. It’s a culmination of your dreams, ideas, and aspirations. You don’t have to wait until you get the keys to start the design process—pour out all your ideas now and begin to bring them to life. The first step is to find the right designer who can help you create a space that reflects your unique style and personality. With an experienced designer on board, you can be assured that every detail will be taken care of so that your home looks perfect when it’s finished.
STEP 2: Start the design process—Designing a home can be a daunting task. It takes planning, creativity, and attention to detail to make your dream house come alive. But with the right approach, you can make this common house into your dream home. Start the design process by making a long list of wants and needs for your new home. Then, plan every small detail that will bring these ideas to life. Take time to research materials, colors, and textures that fit your vision. And try hard to make it all fit within your budget while staying true to your style and preferences. With careful planning and dedication, you will soon have the perfect home that fits all of your needs! Something we advise clients to do is to imagine living in the new home. Which part of their current life is difficult. Resolve it with the right design. This is your chance. Take care of the smaller details. what do you do first thing in the morning, what is your routine, what are the hindrances, the smallest of inconveniences, time wasters in your daily schedule can be corrected with the design to suit you. Help the designer plan it for you.
STEP 3: Insist on 3d designs before you finalise anything, A 3D visualisation is an essential step before finalising any construction project. It allows you to put together the whole picture and understand how the finished product will look like. With a 3D visualisation, you can see all the details of construction, including colors, lighting, and other features that may not be visible in a 2D design. This will help you make sure that everything is perfect before beginning the actual work.
The 3d visualisation also helps to save time and money as it eliminates the need for multiple revisions during the construction process. So if you are serious about getting your project right, insist on a 3d design before finalising anything.
STEP 4: Get a detailed budget before signing off. Before signing off on a project, it is essential to get a detailed budget. This will ensure that you know exactly what materials are going to be used, and how much money you need to set aside for the project. The budget for a home can vary depending on the type of materials used and the finishes chosen. Therefore, it is important to do market research before making any decisions about what kind of finishes will be used. This research should also include looking into different options for materials that can be used in order to keep costs down. Having a detailed budget in place before signing off on a project helps ensure that everything goes as planned and that there are no unexpected expenses or delays.
STEP 5: Ask the builder for a soft posession. Most reputed builders would allow a soft possession. A term used for possession of the apartment before the Occupation Certificate is obtained by the builder. It will involve making complete payments to the builder. In this case the you could build your full home in the duration of the soft possession and not waste a single day to start living in your dream home post possession. The period of waiting can be reduced to zero days.
STEP 6: Identify All the electricals. To reduce the time of construction, finalize all the electricals in the home. List of electricals which are essential to finalize for the designer to build the perfect home is as follows:
- AC with brand and tonnage.(The copper and electrical is always different for every company, installation varies, ugly wires and pipes need to be hidden in pelmets. Absolutely necessary decision before building the home) To be bought at the very beginning of construction.
- Kitchen chimney for size
- Kitchen stove (overcounter, or hob to be cut in kitchen counter) The size of chimney and hob should match. If its to be cut into the counter it should be bought at start of project.
- Fridge type, make and size
- microwave and oven.. built in or open type and size. If its built in, it needs to be bought at start of project
- dishwasher size and model. As inlet of water is in different locations as per brand.
- washing machine size
- dryer requirement if required needs to be planned
- TV for size requirement
- Sound systems. Wires to be laid in the beginning
- security systems – wires need to be planned and concealed.
- Electronic door locks – if required need to be planned with electrical wires.
STEP 7: Start with the off site works before hand Before you start any construction work in your home, it is important that you consider the off site works. An off site facility could help build custom furniture while your home is yet getting other agency works like civil, plumbing, electrical, false ceiling and painting done. This could also help you save time and money as the furniture would be ready to be installed once the other works are completed and protect the budget. By starting with the off site works first, you can be sure that everything else will fall into place in due course. Off site works can also help to reduce the amount of disturbance caused by construction activities within your building. With an offsite facility, you can avoid having to deal with loud noises, dust and dirt in your home while still ensuring that all the necessary work is done on time. Furthermore, an offsite facility can provide a secure environment for building custom furniture which will not only look great but will also last longer than standard pieces of furniture. It will also ensure that all the pieces of furniture are compatible with each other. This way, you can avoid any potential problems that may arise due to incompatible pieces of furniture which you would buy from a ready furniture store.
Don’t wait for possession before you start the process. There is a minimum of one month of work before ground breaking, so give the process its due time and attention. Start with the off-site works such as getting necessary permits and approvals, selecting an architect or interior designer, creating a budget and timeline, researching materials and suppliers, etc. This will ensure that when it comes time to break ground on your new home, you have all the necessary information in place to make sure that everything goes smoothly.
Building your dream home can be an exciting and rewarding experience. The process of designing and constructing your home can be a great opportunity to spend quality time with the designer, take part in the creative process, and create something that you will cherish for years to come.
By taking the time to enjoy the process of building your dream home, you will not only make sure that it is built exactly as you envisioned it but also avoid paying extra rent by waiting for possession and then time for home building. With careful planning and consideration, you can ensure that your dream home is completed on time and within budget.
