Construction Guide for Your Dream House in Pakistan

It's not easy to create your dream home from the ground up. You must comprehend the entire process, as well as the quantity of money and raw materials required to complete the project. If you're laying the foundation for a house and don't know how much money you'll need or what steps you'll need to take to make your dream a reality, don't worry; this blog is for you. We've detailed some key steps to build your dream home for your convenience.

DIFFERENT STAGES OF HOUSE CONSTRUCTION IN PAKISTAN

Understanding the many stages of house construction, from excavation to completion, is critical if you want to stay on top of the project. We'll go over the steps of house construction in Pakistan in this blog, from the beginning until the moment you get the keys to your new home.

THINK ABOUT YOUR PREFERENCES

Decide on the type of structure you want to construct. A single-detached house may be the best option if you are just starting a family. However, if you already have family and adult children who demand separate rooms, your needs may be different. This situation will, of course, necessitate considering whether to build a two-story home or a one-story.

PREPARING THE SITE

The preparation and clearing of the site are the first steps in the house construction process. You may also need to perform some earth moment and leveling at this phase if necessary. You and the builder will stake out the floor plan on site after the land is clear, leveled, and ready. This will be the first time you see the floor plan in person rather than on paper, and it will be a memorable experience.

SLAB FOR THE FLOOR

The primary concrete floor slab will be installed next in the house construction process. Any "in slab" plumbing will be put out, and foundations will be dug, caged, and poured according to your structural engineer's specifications. The main concrete floor slab will be available once the foundations and pipeline work have been completed.

WALLS AND ROOF STRUCTURE FRAMING

Work on the main structure of the house will commence after the slab has been cured; this is one of the most exciting stages of house construction. There are numerous construction methods accessible in Pakistan, and this step may vary slightly based on the type of house you are building: timber, brick, concrete, steel, and so on.

EXTERNAL FINISHES

The external walls will now be finished, depending on the sort of house construction method you used. If your home is built with solid walls like block, brick, or concrete, this will usually entail rendering and painting the exterior walls. If you have a light-framed structure made of wood or steel, you'll need to cover and insulate it with your preferred material. Now you focus on interior fittings, choose the Paints that suit your walls and Flooring.

DOORS AND WINDOWS

It is now safe to install the windows and external doors after the heavy site work has been completed. This seals the building and protects it from weather calamities, allowing the builders to start work on the inside components of the construction, such as electrical work, plumbing, and finishing.

ROUGH INSERTIONS

The essential electrical cables and pipes will be installed by electricians and plumbers. This stage of house construction is known as "roughing it," because the cables and pipes will not be connected to live sources until later in the process. When they return, they'll attach switches, power outlets, and lights, but for the time being, they'll leave the wires and pipes jutting from the walls to be finished later.

INTERNAL FINISHES

Work on the non-structural interior walls, internal wall finishes, and floor finishes will commence now that the wires and pipes have been placed. This process includes the,

  • Plastering
  • Painting
  • Tiling
  • Installation of finished floors

WOODWORK

Carpenters will work on the installation of any built-in furniture, such as kitchen cabinets and bedroom closets, during this stage of house construction. Skirting boards, as well as door and window trimmings, are installed at this time.

FIXTURES, FITTINGS, AND EQUIPMENT

The last significant step of house construction is Fixtures, Fittings, and Equipment. Your electrician will return to complete the installation of your chosen lights, switches, and power outlets, as well as turn on the system. Any faucets, sinks, toilets, showers, and other wet systems will be installed by your plumber. Finally, other large appliances such as refrigerators, ovens, and washing machines will be delivered and installed by your builder.

COMPLETION

We've reached "practical completion," which means your home is almost finished. You will tour the property with the builder and conduct a final inspection to confirm that everything has been built according to the building contract and that the builder has completed the work as agreed.

MOVING IN

This is the time you've been waiting for! It will appear as though it has been a long time since the construction of the house began. After fixing the issues you mentioned during the "practical completion" tour, the builder will offer you the keys to your new house. Now it is completely ready to move in.

WRAPPING UP

So, your dream has come true, and you now have the new home of your dreams. We hope you now have a better grasp of the process of building a house, from excavation to completion. As a result, keep in mind that the house's construction may differ depending on the location and contractor you're dealing with. Furthermore, this is a general reference to home construction the stages of house construction will differ by region.
