Starting to build is always exciting, you have stored your resources and can not wait to splash them on your would-be house walls.
It is also of course logical that whenever one wants to start something like a building project, they would have to assemble their best currency notes. It gives the house a foundation boost.
However, under very normal circumstances, there is a time when the building will stall, no money to move you up quickly as you started, or simply you are stuck.
At such a point, many start regretting the decision to build or even start altering designs, and in the worst-case scenario, most people go seeking for loans and another swindle from their offices.
DO NOT seek a loan haphazardly because you are at a stalling stage, DO NOT run into your office pockets and swindle monies because you are on building pressure, you could lose your entire plan at once.
Below are some of the ways you could keep motivated when your building stalls;
You are not the first:
First of all, you are not the first to build a house, and you will not be the last definitely, and whoever has built a house irrespective of their financial status has reached a point of stalling.
Yes, even the rich cry, but they are up in storied buildings and soundproofed cars that we do not hear their wails. So it is important to note that you are not the first to feel that way and that it is a very normal process that requires you to be a little patient.
During the time, you could continue visiting your site and never stop planning, in any case, the stalling of the building could be giving you an opportunity to stop and look at far better trends and items to add to your plan.
Stick to the plan:
Many times you may want to start breaking off the plan, you started with a three bedroomed house and now that everything is stalling, you are breaking down walls and adjusting to a two bedroomed or one bedroom.
Breaking and building are equally expensive sometimes. Stick to your plan, give your self-time to finish it, do not invoke unnecessary pressure because you want to finish quickly. Adjusted plans come at an expense of interests and money. You won’t be motivated enough looking at your plan bending away from what you wanted.
You are not building to show off:
Yes, most times pressure sets in when one is building to show off. You probably are out of pictures to share on your WhatsApp group, you want to show teach and every process of your house on social media to impress.
First, you should understand that you are building a house for yourself and family, and showing off to people who won’t sleep in it is only getting you unnecessary pressure. In that case, once you stall, it is very okay, retire home and regroup because you owe no one speed.
Why are you building?
Know why you are building, is it to rent out or for accommodation? If it’s the latter, take your time.
Every coin counts:
Building materials come at all prices and are all equally important. If you are stalling in building, you can use the time to stock smaller items you will need in the future, like nails, bulbs, wires, etc.
Also, fro Shs8m can simply be replaced by one of Shs2m, it does not mean that you have lost out on much, it will all be light. Similarly, a door of Shs2m can be replaced by one of Shs180k. Make cost adjustments without necessarily altering your structure plans.
Remember that what is luxury today will be outdated tomorrow.
