WHAT ARE THE STAGES OF CONSTRUCTION OF A HOUSE?

Following are the important stages:

1. Plans and approvals stage

The first step towards building your house is to get an experienced & reputable architect on

board who can design your house according to the location of your land, and give you a firm

footing for your project.

2. Excavation Stage

Before you can start laying down the foundation of the house, you’ll need to get earth

excavated from your land. This is an important and time/ weather sensitive job which must be

done with care.

3. Foundation Stage

The next step is to build the foundation of your house. This is an important step too, and

needs engineering supervision.

4. Superstructure Stage

Next up is the building of the superstructure, the visible part of the house. This is the most

important stage of building your house, as most of the material used is hidden from view after

your structure is built, and you’ll have no idea what quality of materials was used.

5. Plumbing Stage

This is the stage where you’d need water supply connection, sewerage and drainage and gas

supply taken care of, as your plumbing contractor would need to make sure there are no

leakages/ issues with the connections once everything is operational.

6. Electrical Stage

The electrical contractor would provide the wiring which runs inside the walls of your house to

provide distributed electricity to every room of your house. You’ll need to make sure your

contractor uses top quality materials, and their wiring meets high standards to avoid any kind

of hazard or disaster later on.

7. Plastering Stage

All the interior & exterior walls of the superstructure would be plastered with a mixture of

cement & fine sand to give your brick walls a smooth finish. This needs extra care as the

plastering needs regular watering for at least 14 days to ensure maximum durability.


8. Flooring & tile fixing

The next stage in the process is the flooring, where your house gets the tiling/ wood/

cemented finish to match your plinth level. This flooring needs to occur at the right stage as it

usually holds up other work being carried out in the house.


9. Fixing of doors & windows

Doors, windows and other objects where wood or any other material is used are installed

after the external finishes have been completed.

10. Bathroom & Kitchen Fittings

After tile fixing you have to install all the bathroom fixtures and cupboards in the kitchen


11. Painting Stage

Your house is painted from the inside, including all rooms and other spaces.


12. External Finishes

External finishes include outdoor paint work cladding with stone or artificial materials.


13. Electric fittings

At this stage all the electrical switches and lights are installed in your house.


14. Polishing and finish

The last stage is to polish floors, and ensure all fittings in the house work along with all

supplies and connections.


15. Landscaping

This is an important aspect for completing your house in an aesthetic way
