Q: How do we start?

There are several steps in building a house/swimming project. We have prepared a short list of step by step procedure from start to finish.

Step 1: Meeting and Site Inspection

We will need a copy of your Transfer Certificate of Title (TCT) to determine the actual size, shape of your lot. During the site inspection, the team will check all factors that can affect the house/swimming project (orientation for proper ventilation, height of excavation and backfilling, availability of water, , availability of electricity, availability of cable,telephone and internet, history of flooding, accessibility, availability of materials, subdivision requirements and guidelines-if required, etc..)

We will refine the plan based from your request to meet your approval. We will share our insights based from our experience to meet your requirements Upon approval of the schematic floor plan design, we will be preparing and presenting the 3d perspective or outside view of your project.

The project turn over will be based on the agreed deadlines. In case there are changes requested by the owner during the actual construction of the house/swimming pool project, all will be documented and will prepare an agreement contract that that will be between the two parties (owner and contractor). There might be additional or deductible items, but all items will be agreed/approved by two parties. The team will make sure to deliver best built houses on the best cost possible. GALLERY
