Let us learn a clever way to ignore some extra costs we incur when building a house in the city of dreams.
1.Choose the plot size wisely:
Based on your construction plans.
Consider the geographical condition of the site and the site surrounding study when purchasing. This helps to plan better orientation and usage of the plot Hence, cutting that extra wastage of resources.
2.Make no changes after the construction has begun:
Make sure you have a proper list of your requirements and a proper zoning of the spaces prior, all the approvals are done and you can start without any hindrances as it is said time is money and more expensive in cities like Mumbai.
3.You should think about saving money on finishing materials by purchasing them directly:
A client must conduct proper market research on material sources in order to reduce extra commission contractor charges in between.
4.Save money on machinery by simply not letting it idle.
A proper construction stage schedule helps to avoid the idle of machines rented from another party, which adds a significant cost to your total estimate.
Following are the stages to be followed while constructing your dream plot.
The paper works are preparation of drawings, estimation of material cost, labour cost & contingencies,
approval of drawings from the City Development Authority.

column casting, Beam casting and ending it with slab.

Walls are constructed using many materials such as brick, wooden, precast concrete and
many others. Before starting the wall construction the base of wall is constructed first using concrete or size stone
Nowadays, roofing is of reinforced cement concrete slab. Slab thickness & reinforcement details
should be according to approved drawings.
Mortar for plaster work is generally 1:3 or 1:4 is used. Thickness of plaster layer should not be
more than 0.75inch. Cure the surface for about 7 days. So that plaster gains proper strength.

Panels are then fixed with hinges after plaster work. Steel and aluminium doors are fixed after completion of paint works.

electrical and plumbing works are carried out before the final
finishing works such as painting and then followed by Tiling.
