Building Your Own Home From Start To Finish

The housing market is a mess right now. It’s filled with properties that people buying homes can’t afford. If you’re looking for your dream home, it probably isn’t on the market. If it is, it’s most likely not in your price range. Even buying with a loan won’t get most people the home that they want or imagined. That’s why many people are instead looking into building their home. Building your home is perhaps easier than you imagined. It used to be a possibility that was only available to the rich but now everyone can afford it. There are plenty of businesses offering this possibility, but we’re getting ahead of ourselves. On this post, you’ll find a complete guide to building your own home.

Plan What You Want
The first thing that you should do is plan what you want your new home to be like. You should think about how many rooms you want and what unique features you would like built in. Perhaps you would like a swimming pool in your backyard? If you bought a home you would probably be looking at paying well over a million for this possibility. But, since you are building your home, it can be fitted into a budget that is far more reasonable. Think about everything you want in your new home and forget about price for now. We’ll worry about that later.

Design A Budget
You then need to think about the absolute maximum you’ll be willing to spend on this new home. That might include a potential loan that you could take out. Remember, you don’t have to pay for the home right from your own pocket. Similar to buying a new home, you can borrow some of the funds. This is typically the only way most people can afford to build a brand new property. Write down a number that you are comfortable with and work with that. Again, it might be amended at a late stage, but you don’t have to worry right now.

Find A Builder
Your next step to take is to find a builder to create your home for you. You should be looking for a company who will take the job on from start to finish. Don’t settle for a company that will complete half the job for you and expect you to sort out the rest. When a home has been built it should be ready to live in without any extra work from you. That’s the job that you’ll be paying them for. Be careful when you hire a builder because you need a team that you can trust. It’s important that you don’t make the mistake of falling for the promises of a scam company. We recommend you look into Roe Builders. They are a great company that could provide everything you’re looking for.

Buying Land
Once you’ve arranged a building team, they will work with you on a budget you’ve chosen. They’ll tell you what you can and can’t afford based on your budget, and they shouldn’t pull any punches. After that, it’s time to buy the land. You need to choose a place to build your home. We recommend you buy land in an area where there is already development. That way your new home can be part of a new planned community.

When you walk through the door of your finished home, we guarantee you’ll be walking into the house of your dreams.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
