IMPORTANCE OF CONTEMPORARY FAMILY HOUSE PLAN FOR MODERN LIVING

You have the land, what next? House planning and design job can be challenging to decide on. This can be as a result of having varied opinions of how the house should be built, the number of rooms and even spaces that are the requirement for the family. The size of your plot is also a great determinant in the type of house plan to search for and use. In most states in India, extended families live together or are frequented by the other members of the larger family. So, owning a home is an achievement to most, if not all, families.  So why do you need a house plan which is well planned and designed

1. Effective Use of Plot Space
Owning a home or a house is a dream come true to most people. Your dream has to be something that you have longed for and what better way than to have a plan for your house? The plan includes the number of rooms you want to have, the spacing of each room. Having a plan enables you to maximize on the space you have however small. This ensures that all the space has been put to meaningful use. You get to customize the plan to suit your family needs and growth potential.

2. Helps in cost calculation before construction
When we think homes, we automatically assume that it will cost a lot of money. Most people will leave their land idle due to lack of finance to erect a structure. So having a plan for your home or house enables you to approximate the amount you will need to construct the house. Once you have established the amount you need, you can set your realistic targets for the completion of the house. This involves looking for sources to get income be it work, savings or any other source of income. You will work objectively since you know well how much you need. Look at it as financial liberation.

3. Efficiency
Since you get to plan the kind of interior you want, you locate your rooms in a manner that their access is efficient. In Small house plans, for example, you can try to fit in a complete house with all the required amenities within the limited piece of land. It allows you to incorporate all the rooms you require in your house. This also helps in the laying out the foundation drawing which is done objectively. Some people build foundations only to demolish it afterwards claiming it does not fit the kind of house they want and that is such a waste.

4. Less stress during construction
Once you have a plan and your contractor has it, you do not have to stay at the site all the time to give directions on where the kitchen or toilets should be. The plan takes care of that. All you need is to provide your contractor with the family home plan and just make technical appearances to ensure work is per schedule. You get to continue with your other businesses as your house plan idea is already on paper which can be deciphered by your selected contractor to follow. This way you also ensure that both you and your contractor are on the same page and can look forward to your dream home design being built in front of your eyes.

5. Ready House Plans meets your requirement for dream house


It could be a small house for a nuclear family or a big home for your extended family or even a bungalow design for a classy accommodation, but whichever type of house you wish to build for your family, you can search the house plan at www.HomePlansIndia.com.

5 Basic Design Flaws to watch out in a House - Home Plans India

House Plan Flaw 1. The most common design flaw that we can observe on any house is that of proper cross ventilation or of sufficient natural lighting inside the house.

Due to smaller plot sizes in India we do face this issue but by creating skylights and ventilators above window may help dramatically in dealing with them.


House Plan Flaw 2. Most commonly the primary focus is towards the living room as it is a very important feature of the house. Any guest or close family is usually met  here so the size of this room is usually big and with smaller plots the bedrooms become extremely smaller in size and shape so as that only a bed and a wardrobe can barely fit in.


This can also be easily dealt with by reducing the passage area and consuming the same for the bedrooms. Also we can reduce the size of the living room comparatively to make some more breathable space in the bedroom.


House Plan Flaw 3. The layout of the kitchen is very important as it needs to be fit in the fridge, cooking range, microwave and the dish washing sink. Along with them there needs to be sufficient space for the women of the house to work which is necessarily not the case. So our advise would be to redo the whole kitchen to make appropriate working space for a kitchen otherwise it leads to lot of frustration for the use on everyday basis.


House Plan Flaw 4.  Usually the layout of the house may be as per your needs but do not overlook the quality of construction of the house. Do keep in mind that every house needs lot of maintenance and repair work throughout its life span but a better quality construction may reduce that burden to a great extent for its lifetime.


House Plan Flaw 5. Water management or building services are also one of the key design elements which are usually overlooked and leads to poor quality of workmanship which directly effects the overall design, look, feel and maintenance of the house.


So do check all the plumbing connections if they are in proper shape, size & in correct location for proper functioning of the house services. If any water supply pipe is leaking / waste water pipe is leaking then that can create water seepage of the walls which can directly effect the wall plaster and paint. Eventually it leads to patchy wall with dampness which are good for growth of bacteria and fungi.

So our advice will be to consider assistance of professionals if you want to be sure of all the features of a house.

10 Reasonable Questions to ask a Prospective Contractor for building your house

1. Before finalizing and acquiring a contractor for building your house you need to create a list of eligible contractors that you are aware off through close friends and colleagues. Make sure the list includes minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 contractors

2. For each shortlisted contractor, do identify the following basic attributes
            a. Years of his and his teams experience
            b. educational qualification
            c. number of similar houses he has built in the past
            d. how many people work in his team
            e. how many references he can provide for who will vouch for his work

3. Do visit one or two house sites / projects completed by each shortlisted contractor. This may mean some good amount of time but it is worth the time and money you will be investing in your house.

4. Do evaluate each contractor’s rates along with professional architect or a civil engineer to make sure the rates abide by the current market trends.

5. Prepare a matrix or a comparative chart of all your queries regarding the background, skill set and reputability of the contractor. Value each on a scale of 0 to 5 where 0 means least impressive and 5 denotes the highest value.

6. Do ask each contractor to submit their work profile along with few pictures of the past work. Collect them in form of hard copies so that it’s convenient for you to compare it with other contractors.

7. It is always a good practice to ask the contractor for all the required licenses & insurances required for practicing as a contractor in India.

8. Choose a contractor who is helpful and has an attitude of systematic work. He should have a proven record of his work with past 3 projects or more.

9. Do not select or finalize on the contractor as per the lowest fee quoted. Use all the above mentioned pointers for making a more evolved and thoughtful decision for building your dream home.

10. Finally don’t take a decision in haste or under any pressure. Evaluate and decide upon the best contractor for your house building project. Be actively involved in every stage of construction and research enough to work along with the contractor.


In case of any crucial doubt about the construction technique / procedure then do consider taking help from a professional architect or civil engineer.
