Axis Capital Group a construction company based in Singapore which branched out to Jakarta, Indonesia, shares some tips on how to construct a hassle-free construction. Plot and Location This, of course, should be obvious enough. You do not want to be tagged as illegal settlers if you just claim some spot for your own and build a house. This is one of the first things to be considered in constructing your house. You should investigate the strength of the land, soil condition, drainage, zoning and building cost in that region. You should also check your future neighbors to make sure you don’t get involved with drug businesses around the community. Experts Say Although you also have a flair for home constructions and stuff, you should also ask advices from experts. A designer or a contractor can explain further the legalities of the deal. It would surely help if you a lot if you don’t stumble to any laws being broken during the course of your construction. A good referral from friends and family can help you identify which one to be trusted. Make sure to make a contract about his specific tasks and salaries though to keep yourself from being scammed later on. Plan and Build Now that all the potential and ideas are already in place, prepare an initial plan with the help of your newly hired contractor. Discuss the floor plan with your family and friends if required. You should include the size and location of structures on property, including distances to lot lines, streets, roads, and property lines in your plot plan. In your floor plan, on the other hand, include all room uses and sizes, door and window sizes and locations. You should be specific on your plans and should include such things as plumbing or electricity plans. Contact Agreement Once you get approval of your plan, be sure to get a written contract which has been signed and dated by both the builder or contractor and the architect or designer. A contract for new home construction will describe the project in detail and include a listing of all the parts to be included in the house. Remember to amend the contract if you or your team makes any changes to the project later on.
