Hello, I'm still working on this paper, here is what I have worked on so far. So the paper is not yet ready, I'm still compiling to come up with a comprehensive document.

Construction of a bungalow residential house
‘Bungalow’ is an Anglo-derived term used to describe a style of house that originated in India and
Bengal. Bungalows are characterised by their single-storey height, and were first identified by British
sailors of the East India Company in the late-17th century.
However, the term refers to different specific types of building depending on the country. Ironically, in
India, a bungalow is a general term that refers to any single-family building, regardless of the number of
storeys. In Canada and the UK, a bungalow is typically a one-storey building. In Australia and the United
States, bungalows are usually built with a half-second storey and a sloping roof.
Climatic factors were key to the development of bungalows, as traditional cottages were unsuited to the
tropical climates of Southeast Asia. The thick walls used for cottages would trap hot and humid air
inside, and they were liable to flood during the monsoon season as they were built directly on the
ground.
The original bungalows were developed to try and alleviate these problems. Raising the house above the
ground by a metre or more would prevent most flooding. Wide hallways and large windows spread over
one level helped distribute air throughout the building.
The building plan of a bungalow tends to have smaller and fewer rooms that extend from a larger living
room. They can allow more privacy than traditional buildings, as being lower to the ground enables
trees, fences and other vegetation to block windows more easily.
Bungalows tend to be small and so are easily maintained and relatively cheap to heat and cool. As a
result, they are often promoted as being suitable housing for the disabled or elderly, who may also
benefit from their single storey layout.
However, as they are single storey, they occupy more area than multi-storey buildings, and can have a
higher cost per square metre.

This project report proposes the construction of a single bungalow style which has three bedrooms, a
kitchen, a dining area, the lounge and an entry and the back porches. Figure 1 shows a sketch of a
proposed bungalow whose work breakdown and critical path are analyzed in this project. The aim of this
report is to show the work break of the activities shall be undertaken n the course of construction from
the beginning till its completion. The project is scheduled to begin on 1st of July, 2019 and be completed
by 30th August, 2019.

Figure 1

The following is the breakdown of the activities:

Foundation 7/1/2019 to 7/19/2019
This period marks an important milestone in the construction of this house as it shall determine the
integrity of the house. A foundation which is not properly done may results to collapsing of the house
due to factors such as failure to have carried out appropriate soil analysis. I feel the most important part
of building a slab is the sub-grade preparation. If you don't start with a good base the concrete will
probably settle and crack.
There are various activities scheduled to take place on between 1st and 19th of July. Firstly, the project
shall kick off on 1st with various activities taking place. There shall be a layout of the proposed plan on
the side which shall be followed by the grading of the site, excavation of the foundation and taking of
levels. This shall then be followed by preparing floor platform by pouring concrete on the prepared
foundation. The floor is to be prepared by harnessing formworks around the foundation.

Then, a wall is erected up to a height of one story. When you are ready, you can start to build the wall.
This involves putting down the first layer, as described above, and then adding a layer of mortar. You
should then add the next layer of blocks, and repeat until you get to the top of the wall. Use your trowel

to remove any mortar that has slipped between the bricks, and use caulk to cover up any small gaps.
You should then leave the wall to dry.

Prepare a foundation for the wall. Normally foundation for concrete or masonry block walls are made
out of concrete and should be at least four inches wider than the width of the block. Allow the concrete
foundation to acquire strength. When the block wall is built over an existing concrete slab, make sure
that the surface is moist and one-inch bed of mortar has been spread over the footing.

7/20/2019 to 7/31/2019
Between this time, the walls, both interior and exterior are to be attended to their completion. But most
importantly at this stage is the installation of the roof on the house. A roof is much more than just the
decorative top of a building. A roof provides protection from the elements and precipitation, helps drain
water away from a structure, and provides insulation that helps keep the interior of a building warm or
cool, depending on the season. There are several types of roofs, but the best one for your needs will
depend on the structure, the climate, and the amount and type of precipitation you receive. Regardless
of the type of roof you want to build, safety should always be a priority, as roofing work can be
dangerous, and fall equipment should always be used.
In our case, we shall adopted gabled type of roofing whereby we shall install roofing sheet...
