Quite often, house is a statement and reflects one's attitude towards life. Representative image: Photo credit: Liya Graphics/

Those who live in huge concrete mansions lament that a simple life in a small house was better. Even while enjoying the luxurious amenities of their expensive homes, people cling on to the nostalgic memories of the cool red oxide floor, smaller rooms or the minimal facilities. However, those who live in small homes dream to move into bigger homes with better facilities. They keep thinking about renovating the house to make the spaces vaster or adding amenities to suit the modern life. Even those who do not own a plot contemplate building a house of their own. If you have a single story house, all you wish is to add one more floor. Every one belongs to at least one of these categories as house is considered a basic amenity.

Most people talk about building homes that suit their pockets. However, in many other cases, it may not be practically possible. Every human being wishes to live in comfortable situations with good facilities. We may not be able to limit ourselves to a smaller house as house often symbolizes social status and the ability of a person. So, house becomes a statement and reflects your attitude towards life. However, everyone should decide whether they should live only for building and maintaining a house or whether life is a combination of memories, experiences and happiness.

It is only right for everyone to dream about owning a house. But, it would be foolish to build a house that is beyond their financial capacity and then pawn the rest of their lives to a bank.

Those who have the means can surely build luxurious mansion (they could, however, do an introspection about the unnecessary expenses). Spending hefty sums for building a house may not be a problem for them. But, before preparing the plan, one should develop an idea of abode. It would keep us away from falling into the trap of unnecessary loans or other financial risks.
