Problems we hope to solve
Traditionally, a land owner with a desire to build a home will go to a local contractor and discuss his project. The contractor will assure them that it is an easy task and the work can begin right away. What seemed a harmless conversation, will soon turn into nightmare for this family the moment they start. Why?
Because, they have not seen their home yet, it is all in words and there is no visual guide.
But the pictures you see with the contractor makes no sense, because they do not reflect your dream or fit your plot size.
Then the work begins on site and you realise the ground hits hard rock before reaching your planned depth for a underground water tank or septic tank.
Now the costs ramp up. Your contractor suggest changes but that comes at a cost of your front gate width.
You cannot stop the work because the monsoon is headed your war and the loan emi’s are raking up every month.
Now your dream home has turned into your worst nightmare. What to do ?
how we do it
