Make the plans

Before you start making the plans, you must first look for a plot of land. Make sure that the land is not subject to natural disasters. You can now solicit the expertise of an architect so that he can help you to establish easily and within the agreed time, the plans of your house. The realization of the plans allows you to better distribute the spaces and to visualize in advance the final result of the construction.
After the realization of the plan, you can call upon a contractor so that he can take note of the work that you wish to carry out. It is preferable that this professional can protect you against delivery delays, defects and claims. 

Take the administrative steps

At this stage, you must apply for a building permit. The request is made to the administration of the municipality where the house will be built. Moreover, the permit must respect the PLU of your municipality.
