The dreams of owning a home are gradually becoming a necessity especially due to the soaring rent prices in many cities all over the globe. Besides, an average man spends about 90% of their time indoors, they might as well do it in a house of their dreams.

Which begs the question, if at all the journey of a thousand miles begins with a step, why not begin with purchasing a house plan to kick start your journey to becoming a homeowner?

 As a matter of fact, today we are delighted to bring you first hand advice from someone who has bought one of our house plans and is now building it. So  buckle up, and let us tell you a tale of how we helped one of our clients realize his dream home. Hopefully, you will be next!

Purchasing a house plan will not only bring you a step closer to realizing your dream home, but it also saves you a ton of money because with a professional eye comes professional service. This way, you are guaranteed of expertly crafted house plans that will seamlessly reduce the risk of running into problems during construction.

However, finding the right house plan that meets all your expectations can be a daunting and tedious task. From figuring out whether the house plan conforms to the building codes and policies stipulated in the area to ensuring that all the necessary parties review and approve the plans, there is just a lot on the line when it comes to choosing a house layout that will be worth your while.

breaking ground

Fortunately, with a bit of research, quality professionals, and recommendations from your colleagues, friends, and family, you can bag the plan of your dreams. Then, you can finally bring your plans into action, break the ground, and begin with the construction process.

The breaking ground process is an exciting endeavor for a homeowner. It implies that the construction process of your new home is underway. But to be on the safe side, ensure that all site preparation processes are checked off your list before you grab your trusty shovel.

Have you properly cleared the land? Have you conducted a soil test to give you peace of mind whether your house will stand the test of time and harsh weather conditions? Do you have all the necessities (e.g. water) that you may need during breaking ground to ensure the process runs smoothly?

 Have you conducted a survey to make sure you only build where you are supposed to? Instead of digging a home foundation that is awfully close to your neighbor’s house or defying any of the building codes and having to deal with messy and costly fixes later, be more proactive. 

Once these items are crossed off your checklist, the construction process can now commence. Lay down the foundation, set up the framework of the house, and watch your dream home come alive.


Seeing as building a new home is a huge lifetime investment, it is crucial that you involve the best professional for a sensational end result. Maramani offers exceptional services that guarantee you a completely smooth, satisfactory, transparent, and exceptional journey towards realizing your dream home.

1. Can you tell us a bit about how and why you chose this specific house plan? 

I was looking for a majestic design that would reflect my inner cry for the best and my dream to see my home village as developed as Washington DC. I wanted something that would stand as a reference in the village as “the city on the hill “. A house that will illuminate my native place with its beauty and majesty, to remind everyone that God can bless, God can work wonders in such way that one of the sons of this place would be able to build something that as magnificent and impossible that people only see on the TV, as the White House in the USA. The key driving criteria is that poverty is not a fatality. I wanted to be proof that anyone can partner with God to receive wealth and build a house of their dreams.

2. Which features about this house plan are the most valuable to you? 

The main and the back facade.

3. How did you get to know about Maramani and why did you decide to purchase from Maramani? 

I was advised by a friend of mine, during my mission in Somalia. This friend testified about the integrity of Maramani. And since then, I have bought more than five designs so far.

4. How long has it taken since you started the journey to get to this point? 

I started the construction exactly on 4 May 2021.

5. What has been the most exciting part of the process? 

The first floor, because it was already the most outstanding building in my hometown.

6. What has been the most challenging part of the process? 

For me, the most challenging part of the process was identifying the ideal constructor.

7. What do you know now that you wish you knew in the beginning of this whole process? 

I wish I knew that stocking construction materials before the rainy season saves you a lot of hustle.

8. What advice would you pass on to someone who is about to choose a plan and start the construction process? 

Please ensure that construction materials are available in the area. If not, secure their stocking prior to the rainy season to avoid increase in transportation costs.
