الجواب حامداومصليا

If the savings has reached Nisab and has passed for a whole year then Zakat will be Fard upon you. So you must first give your Zakat then you can spend on constructing your house.

وان كان ماله أكثر من الدين زكي الفاضل اذا بلغ نصابا

(اللباب في شرح الكتاب,باب الهدي,ج.2ص505, دارالبشائرالاسلامية)

الزكوة انما تجب اذاملك نصابا تاما ناميا حولاكاملا
(خلاصة الفتاوي ج.1ص.235,كتاب الزكوة,امجداكيدمي لاهور)

And Allah knows best
