HOUSE CONSTRUCTION IN INDIA



Today, with the easy availability of housing loans, with better and competitive professional services, with innumerable building materials and products in the market and with ample information on the net, house construction in India seems like a walk in the park!

But in reality, constructing a house in India  or anywhere for that matter can pose its own challenges in terms of varying cost, lack of knowledge, risks involved etc.
Construction is a science and has been practised for ages but it is one aspect that is not documented well enough. In this blog I, a Bangalore based architect want to share with you some invaluable tips, ideas and advice from the experience that I have acquired. I hope to clear all your doubts and misconceptions and make the process of construction interesting, smooth, hassle free and enjoyable. 

The Construction of a House involves the stages listed here. To make it simpler, I have classified the stages under these sub-categories:
STAGES BEFORE THE START OF CONSTRUCTION:
STAGES DURING THE HOUSE CONSTRUCTION: 
  • DIGGING THE FOUNDATION
  • RAISING THE WALLS
  • BUILDING THE STAIRCASE
  • WIRING AND ELECTRICS
  • CASTING THE ROOF SLAB
  • PLASTERING
  • LAYING FLOOR
  • PAINTING
MATERIAL SELECTION:

  • SELECTING WOOD
  • DOORS AND WINDOWS 
  • BATHROOMS
  • KITCHEN
  • FLOORING MATERIALS
  • RAILING AND GATE
  • WATER TANK
STAGES AFTER THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE HOUSE:
  • ELECTRIC METERS
  • CONNECTING TO SERVICES
  • INTERIORS

    1. Thank you Hrishikesh for your appreciation. Coming from a fellow architect, I am humbled. I will definitely take your suggestions, but I need to find time between running a professional practice and maintaining two blogs. So please bear with me.

    Also would like to know if heavy rain for an hour or so during roofing cause any damage? If so how to know the strength in that particular area. In your experience have you seen roofing done during rain. Please share your insights.
