to build your dream home Continued.... )
A contractor arranges and
supervises the labourers and workmen for various types of work. Only a committed
and good contractor can contribute to the quality of construction. Choose him
wisely. Signing a work agreement between you and the contractor is always good.
A reliable contractor can be selected after consulting your architect and
It is the mason who actually
does the construction work of your house. Make sure that the mason who is
constructing the house has an excellent knowledge of all aspects of
construction, including mixing of water and cement in proper proportion, healthy
concreting practices, maintaining proper surface layouts and perfectly adhering
to the house plan.
Next are the electrician and
the plumber. Choose only a qualified and licensed electrician and plumber. See
that both of them are aware of the rules of the local bodies and the Kerala
State Electricity Board and the Kerala Water Authority respectively. Remember
power and water are essential requirements for your house.

selected after evaluating his experiences. A plumber arranges for water supply,
sanitation and waste disposal of the house. He determines the best location and
layouts and installs sanitary ware and pipes. Like choosing the electrician a
plumber has also to be selected carefully.

plumbers can help you to procure quality materials and even get discounts from
shops for accessories. It is their experience and background that counts.

the city. However getting good carpenters can make your doors and windows,
wooden fixtures, grilles and other furniture look good.
A painter is one who gives
final touches to your dream home. Little defects in construction and gaps left
behind at the end of construction can be rectified with painting.
Suppliers of materials are
another set of people to be chosen wisely. Purchase materials from authorised
dealers of reputed companies. Check the quality and specifications of materials
before purchasing them. Good quality materials are a bit expensive. But do not
decide on costs alone since a house is a lifetime achievement, ACC professionals
Finally neighbors, relatives
and friends are people whom you can rely on while constructing your house. Seek
their advice. At least you can avoid the mistakes, which they committed during
construction of their houses. Or how they solved a particular problem they
