CHAIR USED BY KARANAVAR OF HOUSE
Went thru your knol... http://knol.google.com/k/kerala-architecture#
Very interesting. I wanted to know one thing..
It is where you enter the house climbing up steps in the front. Traditionally it has a slope tiled roof with pillars supporting roof. Sides are open. In the earlier days, the Head of the family called Karanavar used to sit here in a reclining chair with thuppal kolambi (Spittoon) by the side of chair. This chair will have long rails on either side where the Karanavar will keep his legs raised for comfortable rest
Can you please tell me if there is a name for this chair – any specific name and where can you buy it from. IF an online purchase is possible. Will be a great favour. Thanks a ton.
This reclining chair is used in almost all Kerala houses by the elderly. It has long armrests which can also be used as leg rest.Probably you can make a chair like this and may not be available for buying from a shop
MINIMUM CENTS FOR CONSTRUCTION OF HOUSE
Could you please tell me the minimum size of plot for getting sanction to construct a new house (in cents)?
Thanks in advance!
There is no such minimum cents.You will get lot of concessions on building rules if your plot is less than 3 cents
COST FOR PLAN OF HOUSE DOWNLOADED FROM WEB
I have attached one Plan (downloaded form internet) almost what will be the cost of the house.
Walls : Laterites bricks
Floor :Red Oxide
Place of building is Kasargod.
Windows : Cement Frames etc.
I mean low cost.
Can you give your valuable advice and app cost.
I do not know any method by which some one can tell cost of house just by seeing a plan downloaded from web
First of all plan downloaded plan may not suit your plot dimensions and Vasthu factors also
We can take Engineering Estimate using the plan and give approximate cost indication.But charges will be applicable for preparation of Engineering Estimate

HOUSE CONSTRUCTION WITHOUT COMPYING WITH BUILDING RULES
My house construction has been finished 12 months ago but I haven't got the house number yet as the work is not comply with KMBR. The contractor did not put enough space in the front and side yards. On one side it is only 70 cm and the neighbour complained to the authority; so the building needs some structural remodeling. Can this be possible at all please.
This house is 2000 sq.ft. 3 bed rooms. 2 floors.
It would be really helpful if you could advice me please.
If you violate building rules,you may have to demolish that portion of building which violates rules at your cost.
When building your house why not go for professional services instead of depending upon non professional contractors whose only motive is making money.They will misguide you throughout construction taking advantage of your ignorance.They will promise low rates initially to get work and will compromise on critical work by saving both material and labour to increase profit.Finally you will be forced to spend more to get a house with all sorts of problems which you will be able to understand only after construction is over.Then it will be too late to do anything to correct or modify
