IMPORTANT THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE STARTING YOUR CONSTRUCTION PROJECT
Please think about how big your house should be considering your current status, needs, and future plans.
It is also important to think about a right positioning of your house and outdoor spaces, taking into consideration the sun light and how it comes through. Filling your house with natural light and embellishing it with shadows can contribute to a unique design ambiance.
We also advise you to get in touch with your future neighbors early on to inform them about your plans. This will allow you to reduce unnecessary discussions and disagreements that may arise during the construction and could have a negatively effect on your project.
Electricity and Plumbing
You should update your budget with information from local providers of electricity, utilities, and any other services.
Order a geotechnical survey of the ground to find out the bearing capacity of the ground, if there is a risk of rock that needs blasting or if it is a muddy site that may need to be reinforced and piled. In this way, you avoid unpleasant surprises and unnecessary expenses that can otherwise appear during an ongoing construction project.
Get in touch with a few banks to discuss your house plans and compare deals, choose a bank which offer loan guarantees.
Please, contact us if your bank needs additional information.
