It is very possible that what you are spending on that house is far higher than what it should have taken up and costs. There are different ways that one can save when it comes to constructing a house in Uganda.
Here are some of the vital points you need to take note of before you embark on construction or if you are already in the process.
You need to use low-cost materials to save on costs. Most people believe that materials that are low cost are always bad and fake. However, it all depends on how the builder is going to design and use those materials. The low-cost materials should be bought and at least used in places that are not easily seen by the public eye and use the expensive ones where people can see them.
Time taken in the construction
It is advisable that before you start construction, you should put up a time frame on how long it is going to take for the construction to end. If possible, you can construct faster since this reduces the materials used daily and the amount of money paid to the labor.
A longer period leads to the usage of a lot of materials and the money used to cater to labor.
Buy in Bulk
When you decide to start building, you need to shop for the materials in bulk. Buying these things in bulk helps to save in the way that you purchase all the materials at once and if they get done, you can easily purchase others. But if you purchase all these materials per day, then you end up spending more since it is easier to bargain if one is buying in bulk than when you buy in small quantities.
Buying in bulk also reduces the costs of transporting in some instances.
Determine the neighborhood that you are constructing in before you start. Construct a house that will be easy to resell without making a loss because it is graded with the neighboring houses in case of an emergency. If you had plans of constructing in a place that is more than expensive, choose an urban-rural area that fits into your budget to save costs.
Try and track the expenditures that are being made daily on the site and determine what is needed to be done if they are overboard. Talk with the builders and ensure that what you wanted is actually what is done and paid for. This saves on the money used for construction.
When spending during construction, make sure you spend on what is necessary and avoid buying exaggerated things that you will not need for the house so that you can save on the costs.it is always good to supervise your construction to make sure that everything is going on fine.
