Factors To Be Considered Before Getting A House
It is actually a life desire of every person to own a house but in doing so some factors must be considered to make such a house good for heathly living.
1: good site
Good site: the site chosen for building a house should not be water logged or marshy as such area will provide breeding grounds for malaria carrying mosquitoes and other harmful insects.A higher ground is better for buildings a house than q lower ground because such a house receives drier and cooling wind.
Orientation: this orientation reduces the heat of the sun. A well planned house must have a correct orientation, it is better to locate the bedrooms to the east or south side of the house and not to the south west side, I bet most people don't know this.
Site surroundings: the building should be surrounded by an open space for free movement of air around and through the house. Trees are good but they should be planted some metres away from the house. Trees act as strong wind breakers and they purify the surrounding air by ascribing carbon(iv)oxide and give out oxygen for respiration.
Layout plan/components: the components of a standard house must consist of the following:
1: bedroom for sleeping
2:sitting room for social interaction
3:shaded front veranda for outdoor social life
4: covered back veranda for cooking
5: a small kitchen
6: a small lockup store near the kitchen for storage of food and cooking utensils.
7: a toilet
8: a bathroom
9: an incinerator for burning refuse after dustbin collection.
I hope this helps in one way or the other, you can also add yours.
