Sir,
Please send numbers of other architects also.

I already have 30x40 G.F 2 bhk west facing house with brick masonry load bearing wall construction.

Have you considered the option of demolishing it and constructing from scratch?
Though a lot of engineers might not accept it, enhancing a structure of this kind, will limit the planning.

Hello All,

I have completed the construction of the house in Feb. It has been three months now as now.

First off, I want to thank this forum from the bottom of the heart. It has been a valuable repository of knowledge and sharing of experience by the forum members has been exemplary.

I have watched my father build 3 houses and it anguished me how the final finished project turned out. The end product was crudely finished, unsatisfactory quality and frequent and costly maintenance fixes. I resolved that when I will commence on the journey of my dream house, I will not repeat his mistakes.

I understood that quality of life and ease of maintenance would be my target of the dream house.

My journey started in 2016, when I purchased the site. It is in a gated community and was ideally placed in the central location between Bellandur and E-city. Thankfully the papers were valid and we had a painless experience in getting the ownership transferred.

I had decided to get a architect designed house. The extra 5 % was bearable. My reasoning was that since I was busy in my job, I will be constrained by my lack of time, knowledge and experience. Life has taught me that knowledge is expensive, useless advise is free.

I met a series of architects in Bangalore, it was a sobering experience. Some right away refused to meet me saying that they prefer to work on a minimum of 2000 + sq/ft sites. Others met me but did not bother following up despite multiple reminders.

Others put a condition that i have to use their contractors and purchase materials from their preferred vendors. These conditions were unacceptable to me. It took me a couple of months, but finally I met Ashwin Ananth from Ashwin Architects.

He was very patient and understood my requirements. He advised me on the risks and mistakes done by all the stakeholders in the project. I was very impressed with his honesty and upfront attitude. I met him multiple times and was convinced to sign him up as the architect.

Contd...
