( The best team to build your dream home Continued.... )




A contractor arranges and supervises the labourers and workmen for various types of work. Only a committed and good contractor can contribute to the quality of construction. Choose him wisely. Signing a work agreement between you and the contractor is always good. A reliable contractor can be selected after consulting your architect and friends.


It is the mason who actually does the construction work of your house. Make sure that the mason who is constructing the house has an excellent knowledge of all aspects of construction, including mixing of water and cement in proper proportion, healthy concreting practices, maintaining proper surface layouts and perfectly adhering to the house plan.

Electrician, plumber

Next are the electrician and the plumber. Choose only a qualified and licensed electrician and plumber. See that both of them are aware of the rules of the local bodies and the Kerala State Electricity Board and the Kerala Water Authority respectively. Remember power and water are essential requirements for your house.

Discuss with your electrician your needs. It is he who has to design and make all electrical layouts and arrangements of the house. Sometimes an electrical shop will help in choosing an electrician. But do not get cheated. See that both of them are not hand in glove to dupe you while purchasing electrical accessories.

Similarly, a plumber should be selected after evaluating his experiences. A plumber arranges for water supply, sanitation and waste disposal of the house. He determines the best location and layouts and installs sanitary ware and pipes. Like choosing the electrician a plumber has also to be selected carefully.

Mostly electricians and plumbers can help you to procure quality materials and even get discounts from shops for accessories. It is their experience and background that counts.


Choosing carpenters are also difficult unless you plan to purchase ready-made woodwork from shops found in the city. However getting good carpenters can make your doors and windows, wooden fixtures, grilles and other furniture look good.

A painter is one who gives final touches to your dream home. Little defects in construction and gaps left behind at the end of construction can be rectified with painting.

Suppliers of materials are another set of people to be chosen wisely. Purchase materials from authorised dealers of reputed companies. Check the quality and specifications of materials before purchasing them. Good quality materials are a bit expensive. But do not decide on costs alone since a house is a lifetime achievement, ACC professionals say.

Finally neighbors, relatives and friends are people whom you can rely on while constructing your house. Seek their advice. At least you can avoid the mistakes, which they committed during construction of their houses. Or how they solved a particular problem they encountered.
