Tips for Making Cheap Home Construction
Making structures and construction is the component that requires the most costs in the process of building a house or other building. It can even be said that the construction of this structure takes approximately forty to fifty percent of the total development funds. Therefore, several ways are needed so that these exorbitant costs can be reduced so that the expenses for making houses are not so large and spend a lot of funds.
Here are some tips for making cheap home construction so that spending funds can be kept to a minimum. The first, for example, when making or determining the size of a house, use even numbers. Or you can also use multiples of the length of building materials to make construction. For example, if you use steel construction, the size is three, six or nine meters. That is the most ideal size. As for those who choose materials from concrete, use sizes in multiples of four.
Next is to determine the shape of the building, the house you want to build should only use conventional forms, namely squares or squares and rectangles. This makes the cost of making the construction much cheaper than other shapes such as triangles, circles or other shapes.
In addition to the use of other materials, if the shape of the building is not in the form of a box or rectangle in general it always creates waste. One of the main reasons is that the remaining materials can no longer be used, resulting in an expenditure of funds that should not have been done. Events like this are more common in buildings that are curved. So you should just avoid this kind of building.
Good land selection also has a huge influence on the high and low costs of building construction. Try to get land that is flat and the soil condition is quite hard, not muddy or loose. And vice versa do not choose land that is very hard and rocky.
The condition of the land or land like this can make the cost of construction to swell because it requires special techniques and methods. Likewise, land with a steep slope angle because it must be leveled first. This process of land equalization requires no small amount of money.
The construction and installation should also pay attention to the existing weather conditions. Wherever possible the process of making this house is done during the dry season. Even better if it is at the beginning of the season. Because if it is done during the rainy season, of course there are several types of work that must be temporarily stopped because it is raining. Whereas on the other hand we still have to pay for the salary of the handyman even though he is not working.
Then for human resources, look for craftsmen and foremen who are experienced and have high flying hours. Especially if you don’t have much time or opportunity to carry out continuous monitoring. Even though they ask for higher wages, if the quality of their work is really good, it is better to choose them instead of using a handyman or foreman whose pay is cheaper but the results are disappointing.
As for the use of materials, everyone will know that materials that are native to Indonesia or locally are mostly cheaper than materials imported from abroad. That’s why so that savings can be made even more, choose materials that are local products only. Especially if you live in a rural area, of course it will be easier to find wood, bricks and so on at a much cheaper price.
Then for other materials, choose those that use alternative technologies. Nowadays, many materials are made using this technology. For example aerated concrete, cement mortar and so on.
