Construction Tips and Planning

You may know that you are supposed to look at an Advanced Geosciences resistivity survey before you start work on any building project. However, do you know what types of things you should be looking for as you go over the survey? Understanding exactly what you should watch out for can help you identify it much faster than you would be able to otherwise, so you should know about these common pitfalls in advance.

House Construction

First of all, you just need to look for any underground water sources that could pose a problem. The water table below the surface may be invisible to the eye, but it functions much like the water on the table surface. There are lakes and rivers. You do not want to dig down for the basement or to construct the foundation and discover that you are attempting to build on unstable ground over an underground water source.

Depending on where your project is located, it may also be a good idea to look for fault lines. The survey will tell you if you are building on top of one. At that point, you can decide if you want to go through with the project or if you would feel better about it if you moved to another location. It is worth noting that a fault line itself does not mean that it is unsafe to build, but you have to take special precautions and use special methods to make sure that the building is really safe.

Kitchen and Bathroom Door Plan

House plan is very important when constructing a new home, without it everything will be disarray. When my family started the construction of the house they send me the copy of the house plan, I was impressed with the perspective layout of the house and didn’t look closely at the house plan. Within few months the first floor of our house was almost finished including the bathroom but the other day when my sister uploaded new photos, I was surprised to see that the bathroom door is directly facing the kitchen sink, which mean if you went out the bathroom it is already the kitchen. I didn’t like it so I asked them if they can move the door to the other side, it could be a good idea but it is not possible because the other side is already the stairs, the bathroom was built under the stairs.

Kitchen and Bathroom Door

My family told me that they send the house plan to me and I should know that the bathroom was there,  yeah I know it was there but I didn’t know that door is facing the kitchen. We made few plans like closing the door and just open a new door in the bedroom beside the bathroom, it could be a good idea but thinking that if we have visitors and they need to use the bathroom/toilet they have to go inside the bedroom first before they can use the toilet, so it is a bad idea after all.

I’ve asked my husband about my problem and he carefully looks at the house plan and he agreed that the toilet seems in the wrong location,  he suggested to make it as a pantry. I’ve told my mother and sister about it, to cut the story short when they went home they informed my father and they agreed to make the bathroom as a pantry since it was not yet fully finished and suggested to transfer the bathroom at the back of our house, the storage area rather than making two bathrooms (making the first one as private).

Small Room for Music Room

Our house was almost finished the walls, columns, beams and flooring was already done.  There’s a small space below the stairs to second floor I would love to design it as music room where we can display our keyboard and other music instruments and furniture. Buying furniture and instrument is an easy task I could buy pomarico black crystal mouthpiece at wwbw as a collection or as mouthpiece to a clarinet but sad to say though my mother decided to make the small room as stock room.

Small Room

It would be better if I can see the house personally while they are constructing so I can tell them what do I like and what I don’t want. I am kind of perfectionist in every details of the house eh.

Home Renovations Ideas in Manhattan

Are you wondering if Manhattan renovations are worth the money? This is going to be a big investment, after all. You could end up putting thousands of dollars into your property. This is not something that you want to do without really considering everything and thinking about the possible outcomes.

Home Renovations

To start with, you can change your home so that it is really the place you want to live. Why keep saving for your dream home when you could just turn your current home into that dream home? You can take out walls, add new features to the bathroom, update the kitchen, and end up feeling like you live in a brand new house. These changes will have a major impact on the functionality of your home as well, making it more enjoyable.

On top of that, you should consider the boost in price that your house will get when you renovate. You could end up increasing the value of your property by much more than you spent. Buyers are looking for renovated structures because they want to live in the locations where old homes can often be found, but they also want the amenities and conveniences of modern life. This is a hard mix to find, and renovating your home is really the only way to get it. If you decide to move, you will probably sell your house quickly and for more than you paid.
