From the moment you begin the journey to build your own home ‘สร้างบ้าน’ you will face a raft of decisions from choosing paint colours and light switches to the underlying construction method. Modern building and construction techniques can be used to create both modern and traditional homes with the latest features and an architectural gravitas that is unrivalled by a standard home. You can choose to build your home with brick and block, timber frame, concrete formwork, steel-frame construction or pre-made insulated panels for rapid construction. You can incorporate stunning architectural features such floor to ceiling windows, a grand entranceway and an imperial staircase with all the latest modern gadgets. central air and ventilation, fully integrated network cabling, smart lighting, security and inbuilt music systems can be installed throughout your home, with rooms and storage laid out to maximise the flow and function of your family life. Of course, you will need to keep within any relevant building regulations and take into consideration the local environment and site topography of your new home. Your architect and home builder should be able to offer advice in these areas.
You can also choose to integrate the latest in sustainable building techniques and energy efficiency technology to lessen your new home’s environmental impact and lower the ongoing running costs. You might even be interested in adding on a domestic renewable energy generation system such as solar panels, for generating hot water or electricity, or perhaps utilise underfloor heating powered by a ground source heat pump, or air conditioning with an air source heat pump. If you are a true eco-warrior with your own electric car be sure to allow for at least one charging station to power up your vehicle.
Whatever your home build dream looks like there are many advantages over buying a finished house from the open market. The obvious benefit is of course that your new home will be created exactly to your requirements to maximise your enjoyment and use of your space and with better construction standards too. With a properly planned construction this can often work out as much better value for money than purchasing a second-hand home. The emotional benefits are also clear, both with the enjoyment of your new home and the sense of deep satisfaction that comes from having created a lasting monument in your community, a home for generations to enjoy. You can also feel good about creating jobs for the local economy during the construction of your new home.
