House building could be a very rewarding project; however it can be also be a taxing task. House building is both an art and a science.

When you're starting house building project, the first thing to consider is the financing scheme. Even though that you have already a space to build a house, your budget will decide, how big and comfy your house would be. Plus, you need to pay your designer, your builders, and of course, your permits.

Second in the list is of course, your designer. What would your house look like? Where will be the kitchen located? How many bedrooms that your house would have? It is the designer--an architect, an engineer, or just an expert draftsman, maybe--will do this job for you. He or she will be the one to design the blueprint of your house--where to put the windows and doors, the dining and the living room, the bathrooms and the bedrooms. They could also propose the mock design of the garden, if you want.

Third, in house building, you need also to know about the best materials to use. However, if you have already hired an engineer to manage your house building project, it was he or she, who will do the canvassing and purchasing for you. On the other hand, if you want to get involved in the purchasing process, it is good to know where to purchase the essentials--the wood for your panels and doors; the glass or jalousies for your windows; bricks for your fireplace; and tiles for your kitchen, bathrooms and maid's quarters.

Tip: The internet is one of the best tools that you can use in your materials canvassing for your new house. There are lots of stores dedicated for home furnishings and construction materials available in the worldwide web. All you need is to browse, scan and skim, and pick what you think is the best.
