Construction guide 2 Accommodation styles of your House

What kind of accommodation styles you require which will fulfill your basic needs?

Accommodation styles

Accommodation styles depend upon family requirements. A family with more members will require more number of rooms to accommodate in. In Pakistan houses can be divided into a single unit and a double unit. A single unit is used by a same family and these houses are designed in such a way that all floors of house are interconnected and have access to each other without any separation. A double unit house is such a house in which floors have separate access so that the owner can utilize one floor and rent out the other. Double units are highly recommended and will secure at least your monthly kitchen running expenses. Details about budgeting and costings shall be discussed in coming blogs.

Basements

RCC(Reinforced cement concrete) structure have a higher cost, and basements are constructed in RCC structures. Financially it is out of budget for most of us to afford basements. However it has many benefits e.g. extra living space, controlled temperatures in summers and winters both, safe from outside pollutions such as noise and dust etc. Basements can be designed for complete and partial accommodations. A complete accommodation includes master bedrooms with washrooms along with other divisions such as living area, store, servant room etc., whereas partial accommodation only includes later divisions. Partial accommodations are recommended more since it does not have wet areas such as washrooms & kitchens hence not requiring installation and maintenance of septic/liquid waste disposal systems.
