7 Factors to Consider When Choosing a House Plan for Your Dream Home in Ghana

7 Factors to Consider When Choosing a House Plan for Your Dream Home in Ghana

It can take years to save up enough money to build your dream home in Ghana—some people save for 10 years or more! After waiting this long, you may be in a hurry to get things started and choose a house plan without really thinking every aspect of the home through. Instead, take your time and take these factors into consideration when choosing a floor plan.

  1. Are the bedrooms grouped or separated? If you have young children you probably don’t want a floor plan with the master bedroom on one side of the home and the other bedrooms on the other side of the home.
  2. Is there enough space? You want to make sure that your existing furniture will fit. Also, if you have a large extended family that will frequently gathering in your home the size and openness of the common living space is an important factor.
  3. Can you afford the cost of construction? Bigger isn’t always better. Many people do not realize just how expensive raw materials and labor can be. According to a report titled The Housing Market in Ghana published by the Bank of Ghana, the average prices of new construction homes are:
    • One Bedroom: 33,145.00 Ghana Cedi (17,500 US Dollars)
    • Two Bedroom: 41,668.00 – 48,297.00 Ghana Cedi (22,000 – 25,500 US Dollars)
    • Three Bedroom: 60,608.00 – 68,184.00 Ghana Cedi (32,000 – 36,000 US Dollars)
  4. Can the house plan be modified? House plans that are expandable offer you more flexibility if your needs change in the future.
  5. Is the house plan engineered correctly? Once you submit your building permit application and floor plans to the Ghana Land Commission, it can take up to 3 months for approval. You want to make sure that the plans are engineered correctly so that you can obtain a permit without further delay.
  6. Do any areas of the home need to be handicap accessible? If so, you want to choose a floor plan without stairs. The doorways and hallways may also need to be wider.
  7. Is outdoor space important to you? An outdoor leisure space such as a covered porch can expand the usable square footage of your home and make it more enjoyable.
