Having a plot of land that have slope terrain may make you rethinking to build something. From the construction method, water level, and the expenses of construction.
In here I want to share 5 tips if you planned build the small slope house;
- Feasibility study.
You need to understand and doing an assessment before you plan to build and design the slope house. Knowing the soil texture and composition, how deep to digging the water, your plot / land elevation, and environment surrounding; even like road access to reach your site. So it will make you more easier to planing / designing your building.
2. Construct the land / area that you only use.
Don’t use all the slope terrain to build something, that will be expensive. To cut the cost in building construction in slope terrain, just only use the area that you need. For example, if you have 5000m2, but you only want to build small house for 500m2 only; then plan only for that thing. You can develop more later when you ready for bigger plan and expenses.
3. Have good structure calculation and construction.
Pay more attention in structure calculation and construction; you need a good structure if you plan making house in slope terrain. The land slide is one of what most people worried. The rain intensity, water absorption area, and natural disaster potential must be calculated into your building plan / design.
4. Material quality.
Don’t reducing the material grade / quality that already recommended by your architect to cutting the building expenses. You can cutting more expenses in many other way. But reducing grade or material quality for structure “especially” will make your building weaken and not well build that what your architect calculated and designed before.
5. Follow your architect.
Many of construction company will do many thing to cut the expenses and get more big gap profit; the one that usually happen is replacing material and reducing quality or even quantity. Ask your architect to do site survey and do an assessment for site / construction process. And follow what your architect said / planned. If there is problem happen; contact your architect and your construction company to work together to solving the problem.
