Re: DESIGN IN STEPS

Chain/folded style is more trendy these days. This will cost extra and need expert labor for proper centering. My steps are designed in this style - Both external and internal stairs. This looks good. If you are planning to make use of below staircase area - with wood work, you may go for weist slab...

Re: Construction Area Calculation For Complete Contract - Need help

Usually contractors do this.

Re: modular kitchen - factory made vs carpenter work

Thanks MSN for such detailed reply. Its fair analysis. Agree with all points.
For kitchens, i decided to go for factory finish. Wardrobe/Tv cabinet and other wood work i'll decide later - as it requires more customization.

Re: House plan review

First regrd your contract: 1650/- is reasonable market price. It is difficult to find contractors below this rate. Don't just go by base price or specifications in agreement. Most important thing about contractor is 'hist track record'. Can he finish on time with good quality ? please do a reference...

This should be bigger (8x7 clear area) 2) Area below staircase ( after 2nd landing) may be used for pooja 3) Bathroom and toilet may be combined. anyway it is common and extern...

Re: Front elevation assistence

There are architects who can create 3D elevation. It would be easy if you have autocad drawing. Else they can manage with few pics and a site visit. As far as i know, basic charges are 5000 and 2000 extra for additional concepts.
I found one by searching in justdial near by locality.
