Re: Plan To Start Construction

Completed the ground floor slab work. Ran into some problems with delays in getting bar-bending work. I am very happy with the execution so far.

Good co-ordination by all the teams to get the drawings, execute it to perfection. Now hoping for the first floor to be completed as per schedule.

Re: Plan To Start Construction

We will be going for roof mould soon, next week. Hopefully we get the wiring and plumbing diagrams frozen and we can go ahead with construction without any more changes to the plans. I will have a preview of the interiors before proceeding with construction of first floor.

Re: Plan To Start Construction

The rains have played spoilsport. We were supposed to start the construction of sump. But waiting for the rains to cease.

I am awaiting a reply on the dimensions of the door frame. Is it a good idea to go State Forestry dept and give an order for the teak frame, door, pooja door and frame ?

Re: Plan To Start Construction

It is a labour contract. However the grade and quality is decided by us with consultation of the architect. The contractor helps us in sourcing the material for which we pay a fee.
