About building a house

Every family dreams about making their own home. Building a house is a big step and often one of the biggest monetary expenses made in life. For this reason, it is important to carefully think it through and plan, so that the end result would be optimal and meet expectations.
What follows are steps for the start of making a home.

Step 1: Drawing up a budget

Although it’s nice to think about what the house could look like, it’s recommended to first determine the budget. Consult your financial advisor or loan manager to determine your options and what are the terms and conditions for building a house.
Now that you know the budget, you can start thinking about how big of a house the budget allows for. For this, consult a house factory. To put it in very general terms, “turn-key” prices start from 1,000–1,200 EUR inclusive of VAT / m2.

Step 2: Choosing the architecture for the house

Now you can start shaping your dream. You can choose from among standard designs or design a custom house meeting your exact wishes with the architect.

Step 3: Choosing the structure and materials for the house

Step 4: Designing and manufacturing the house

Once the previous step has been completed, designing and manufacturing the house in the factory can commence.

Step 5: Erecting the house, construction commences

Once the house is completed in the factory, erecting the house at the site can commence. This means that all the necessary elements are transported to the construction site from the factory and the house envelope is erected. Afterwards, internal and external work can commence right away.
