Top Fears in Building or Designing your House

After a long process of renting an apartment, it finally dawns on you, 15% of your income goes to your landlord and this happened for over 5 or more years. That is the story of Justin, who lives in Mandurriao in Iloilo with his wife Abby. They have been working for 9 years in the new call centers in the city. After reflection, it would matter if they put their money into construction of a home, given that they are almost completing payment of their 150 sq.m. lot.

Finally, you too and your wife have decided to design and construct your home. If you are most future home owners, you have a concept in mind of how it would look like. Many working couples have an overview of design and construction but are terrified of the details of “concreting” it out. What are the usual fears of future home owners?

Asking an architect to do the design solves the fear of not being creative. And you shouldn’t need to design anything, you only need to know WHAT HOUSE YOU WANT. Part of this is being able to ask for what you want and say no to options that you do not like.

Asking an architect to give a rough estimate enables you to understand how much money you will need so you don’t have to worry about not having enough finances. You can plan for it.

Asking an architect to do his job of representing you to the contractor solves not knowing construction and being screwed by contractors.
