House Building Tips: These house building tips will help you save thousands of rupees

For most people, “Apna Ghar” is a dream. There are those who prefer to buy ready-made apartments/flats, while there are many people who prefer to build a house by taking a plot of land. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. The dream house for everyone is not only an emotional issue, but also offers many freedoms. Building your own house is not a trivial matter. The cost of building a house in the village also reaches thousands of thousands of euros.

However, if a few measures are taken into account during the construction of a house, considerable savings can be made. For example, if a house is built without pillars or beams, there is a saving from rebar to cement and sand. If you are building a single story house, there is no difference in strength. Let us tell you some of these tips today, which can be adopted to save thousands of rupees while building a house.

Adopt this structure instead of the traditional design

Some home building tips are very effective. For example, let’s say you don’t want to build a multi-story building, then a simple change will save millions. Generally, people use frame structure to build a house. Adopting a charging structure in place opens the door to big savings in no time.

In fact, fewer bars are used in load-bearing structures than in frame structures. Apart from this, there are other measures like using fly ash bricks instead of normal brick, concrete frame instead of wood, using cheap wood instead of rose-teak stick etc.

The frame structure costs a lot

Now we know how much it costs to build a house the traditional way, that is, the frame structure, and how much savings can be made if we use the tips. For example, we maintain a plot of 500 square meters. The average cost of building a single-storey house is Rs 1,500 per square meter. So it will cost around Rs 7.50 lakh to build a single storey house on a 500 sq ft plot normally.

The change in structure makes a difference of millions

Now let’s look at the tips. The first solution is to change the structure. No columns or beams are required in the supporting structures. For this reason, the bar is only needed to make the roof and the visor. Apart from this, less cement and sand is also used. Similarly, if you use fly ash brick as compared to normal brick, you save Rs 4-5 per unit. This means that the cost of the bricks is almost halved. Another advantage of fly ash bricks is that they do not need to be plastered. They can be painted directly by applying putty. In this way, both the cost of the plaster and the labor are saved. Another way to cut costs is to build a square.

So many tips to save…

If the measures mentioned above are adopted, cement consumption will be reduced by about 50 bags. Currently, the average cost of a sack of cement is Rs 400. That is, you save Rs 20,000 on cement alone. The cost of the bars is generally 20 percent of the total construction cost. In the load structure it is reduced to 10 percent. That is, instead of Rs 1.50 lakh, your work will be done for Rs 75 thousand. This way you save 75 thousand rupees on the bars.

Brick to sand savings

It takes about 5,000 bricks to build a one-story house. The cost of buying a normal brick would be around Rs 50,000, while in the case of fly ash it would be only Rs 25,000. This means you have saved 25 thousand rupees even on bricks. Since there is no need from plaster to beam-column by adopting these tips, apart from cement and bars, sand is also used less. If you were spending 75 thousand rupees on sand to build a house normally, then by adopting these tips, that expenditure will be around 50 thousand rupees. That is, even in the case of sand, there is a saving of 25 thousand rupees.

2 lakh will be saved by adopting these tips

Talking about other expenses, around Rs 40 lakh will be spent on stone, around Rs 50 lakh on tiles, Rs 25 lakh on putty and Rs 1.15 lakh on windows, doors, electrical and plumbing work. There is also room for savings in them. Building a toilet-bathroom together saves brick, cement and sand, as well as using less space. You can save by using ceramic tiles instead of marble. Thus, if you notice the reduction in labor cost to other expenses, you can easily save more than Rs 2 lakh by adopting these tips. By adopting them, your dream house is also ready in less than 05 lakhs.
