The first step to realizing your dream home plan is to contact an Architect. Explain to your architect how you want your home to be seen. You can search the internet for home drawings and similar house plans. This will inspire you to be able to explain to your architect how you want to design your home.
You can also explain to your architect what statements or symbols you might want your home to communicate through design. At this stage, your budget will be important because it will determine the size of the house you will have. Mortgage finance is available from KCB Housing Finance, Savings and Loans, Barclays, Equity Bank, Standard Chartered, Stanbic or other financial institutions in Kenya. Architects will combine designs and symbols into shapes and will find functionality from here.
Functionality involves how space is interconnected with one another. the kitchen should be near the dining room, the bedroom should be privately away from the living room, the construction of the structure must be structurally appropriate and in accordance with the Building Code and all laws governing the construction of the house. Using 3-dimensional graphic design software like ArchiCAD, your architect should be able to present your home in 3D graphical display so you can make your recommendations and changes. This process will continue until you are satisfied with the design of the house.
