A home is a place where everyone likes to feel the vibe of being cared for. It is a place where you take rest, where you spend your time with family, where we do celebrate our occasions. So, this place needs extra care when making a design.
The traditional way of designing a home is to hire an architectural firm who will do the exterior and interior design, then a structural design firm or structural engineer will design the structural parts and finally, a contractor will build it for you. But this process is diminishing its popularity for many reasons:
- This process is costly. Every specialized service provider will charge separately and as a result the cost will be multiplied several folds
- Designing a home with a consultancy firm requires a lot of time. This is because, to reach a final result, the consultancy firm needs to sit with the client to discuss the facilities and amaenities. Asa result to meet uo the clients demand, many things needs to be changed and design revisions are necessary, which costs a good amount of time.
So, how to design a home without spending too much money and time?
The way is simple, you have to design your home. For sure, you can not do structural design as it requires specialized knowledge. But for general design like designing the exterior and interior, you can use up your time.
