    Every person wishes to possess a dream home. Building a dream home in Ghana would a better choice. Ghana is economically flourishing these days because of the oil discovery. People rejoice the serene climate and the amicable environment.

    Some tips which may help in the realisation of your dream are:


    It is firstly important to analyse if you are having any particular concept in your mind about the design, structural requirements etc.

    Expert services of professionals

    The expert services of different professionals like engineers, architects, surveyors and contractors are very much necessary to shape your dream home. They have an expert knowledge of the different stages of construction. They can visualise your ideas and give the appropriate advice. Trying it in your own may lead to extra cost of redoing things again.

    Selection of suitable house plan

    Select an appropriate house plan that can incorporate all that you and your family need. Do not get carried away by what the professional tells you. A combination of your requirements and the professional advice can bring out the best house plan you may need.

    Concentrate on the green aspects

    Incorporate all those facilities that can make your home more greener like more of natural ventilation, utilisation of solar energy, water harvesting technique

    Suitable location

    Different people love to live in different locations. Some may enjoy the scenic beauty -places like McCarthy, Akwapim while some may love the busy life of city like in Accra. It is your personal choice to decide where you wish to have your dream home.


    Next comes the choosing of appropriate land to build your dream home. If you possess any land then you can verify with the experts whether its physical conditions like soil profile, soil condition, land terrain etc. is good enough to carry out the construction.

    If you do not possess any land then you will have to purchase the required piece of land and complete all the documentation process from the Land Commission in Ghana. This may be a time consuming process.

    Building permit

    After the acquiring the land documents and the house plan next is to obtain the building permit from the local district assembly where the land is situated. This is an official confirmation for the commencing the construction. Evading this procedure may halt your construction as well.


    Now it is the stage where you need to decide the budget. Budget helps in monitoring the expenses. It should not only include the exact cost of the project but also the escalations, unexpected expenses that may arise during the construction period and little later.

    In case of need, you can go in for loan from banks and financial institutions in Ghana which offer many suitable options.

    Construction materials

    The contractor takes the responsibility of arranging the materials like blocks, cement, tiles, counter tops. Obtain proper quotations and check if it includes all the necessary materials without compromising its quality.

    Personal involvement

    Be sure to monitor the developments personally so that the construction work is as per the house plan and the budget. If you are unable to attend personally then request the contractors to keep you updated with their periodical reports and images of the site.


    It will indeed be a pleasure to see your dream home shaping up in front of you.
