Dream House Construction in Pakistan!

Dream House Construction in Pakistan!

Constructing your dream house has been a nightmare in Pakistan. A house which everyone dreams of, majority can turn the dream into a reality only once in their lifetime. A dream turns into a nightmare when one gets into the hands of unskilled and non-technical labor resulting in form of financial loss and above all mental stress. Nobody else is to be blamed in this situation, rather the one him/herself, whose lack of knowledge and fine research brings him/her to this stage. As its said “Its never too late”, indeed it is! But to revert the mistakes and wrong doings, extra cost will have to be sustained hence causing the financial loss. Moreover extra time will be spent resulting in time-loss too. Team Overc’s is bringing a series of construction guides to educate viewers about the process of constructing dream house in Pakistan

In a market like Pakistan, 80% of construction industry is in the grip of un-professional and non-technical contractors. General public also prefers this contractor system due to budget constraints and cost savings. In this system the construction of house starts without defining any roadmap and the owner or client is provided with literally no idea about approximate end cost. Secondly workmanship plays an important role in construction of house, workmanship comes with teamwork. In contractor system there is no team available to supervise the project at any stage, hence all the burden of supervision rests on the shoulders of client or owner himself.

Lets have a brief look at other factors that make house construction a nightmare:

  • Insufficiency of fine research before starting the proceedings
  • Starting the work without making a proper roadmap.
  • Compromising on quality of material for saving the costs
  • Compromising on quality of labor and contractors for saving the costs
  • Lack of self supervision
  • Unprofessional teamwork and workmanship
  • Inappropriate behaviors with labor and contractors
  • Financial constraints
  • Improper paper work and agreements
  • Lack of technical knowledge


In our coming blogs and series of construction guides, we will elaborate each factor. Stay tuned!

    Development is the cycle to construct something. Development word comes from “build” and that means to construct something. Building streets, palaces, Dams, or houses are a few instances of developing something. In designing agreements development implied various components in a single spot. It relies upon the venture also, on the grounds that prior to beginning development each organization needs to do Construction arranging. This is the main piece of the development. We should speak exhaustively about Construction arranging.

    Expenses for grey structure and finishing are used to calculate the cost of constructing a house in Pakistan. The cost of grey structures in Pakistan is calculated according to a combination of materials, labor, construction, plaster of walls and ceilings, and floor preparation. Similarly, finishing expenditures include the cost of all the materials and labor used to install tiles, fittings, fixtures, paint the house, and do the woodwork.
    Construction quality determines the cost of home building. Regardless of the materials and finish you pick for your home, construction quality will vary. Four different grades of construction quality are distinguished, representing different materials and finishes. A is the highest quality, followed by B, C, and B+.

Building roads, castles, Dams, or houses are some examples of constructing something. In engineering terms and conditions construction meant different elements in one place.
