The Process Of Constructing

The process of constructing a new house from ground up can be a tedious process that involves multiple steps and processes along the way. Here are some of the steps you need to take while constructing a new house.

1. Levelling And Preparing The Ground

Before the actual process of construction starts, the ground will need to be prepped and levelled. This involves removing any obstructions in the way of the foundation.

2. Excavating And Layering PCC

Excavating is simply digging holes into the ground so that you can add support for the base of the building. Once the land is excavated, a layer of PCC (Plain Cement Concrete) is added before any reinforcements are added.

3. Laying The Foundation

The foundation is the base of your home that is on the ground. Laying the foundation helps transfer the load of the structure to the ground after a reinforced base is installed in the previous step.

4. Addition Of The Plinth Beam And Slab

Once the base is installed, the field beam replacements are primed. After this, the concreting is completed. Masonry is usually added over the foundation and then the plinth base is concreted over it. The gap between the plinth level and the ground is filled using compacted soil.

5. Addition Of The Column

Once the surface of the plinth is repaired, the construction of the main structure of the house begins. The columns are lifted, and the foundation is further fitted so that the rest of the construction can take place.

6. Laying Of Bricks

The walls are then constructed according to the building plan, using various materials, such as bricks, tiles, concrete blocks, etc. Mortar is used in the masonry work and spaces are left for windows and doorways according to the design plan.

7. The Addition Of Lintels For Doors And Windows

Lintels are added in order to facilitate the construction of doors and windows and to allow for masonry around them.

8. Constructing The Roof Or A Slab

Once the mason is done, beams are added on a base of concrete to build the upper floor or the roof. Beams and supports are added and mortar is poured over them.

9. Plumbing And Electrical

The electrical and plumbing lines are laid in the walls so that they are concealed. The ends of the pipes and wires are left out so that the fixtures can be added later.

10. Plastering And Painting The Exterior Walls

As soon as the basic construction of the structure is done, the plastering and painting of the exterior walls begins. Often, waterproofing is also done at this stage to protect the walls. One can also clad the outer walls for better protection and aesthetic.

11. Roof Work

Typically the terrace or the roof is waterproofed and tiles are added to protect it from damage from the elements.

12. Interior Design

The interior walls are plastered and walls and floors are levelled before they can be tiled and painted.

13. Addition Of Furniture Fixtures

Once the home is built, the construction or the sourcing of furniture begins. Electrical boards are added, and sanitary ware is added to the bathrooms.
