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.

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 here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
