Your own country house is the dream of many residents of “stone jungle” and close apartments. True, for many a dream remains something unattainable, but some do not spare the strength and means to provide a comfortable life nearby from nature. True, from making a decision to the implementation of the project can pass a lot of time, because it will be correct to distribute efforts and carefully think through each stage.
The first step is the choice of a site for building a house. At the same time, it is extremely important to take into account such moments as connecting to the mains, the ability to connect to water supply and sewage, the presence of a good transport interchange, the absence of enterprises with a harmful production cycle. The sewage planning must be approached especially carefully so that the cleaning of the sewage system is not too frequent … A significant plus will be the presence of a reservoir near the area where the future house will be built. Therefore, it will be extremely useful to find out in detail the geology of the area. By the way, all the realtors can keep silent about some nuances. For example, I will not tell you about the presence of marshy areas nearby, mobile soils. After all, at the latter it will not receive to install a concrete plate or strip foundation.
The next step is the choice of building materials for building a house and a type of foundation as a basis. Currently, each of the builders offers its own, more familiar version of the foundation. Most often, the choice is stopped on pile-screw foundations, in favor of which the inexpensive cost and a small time for installation are indicated. In fact, this type of foundation of the house was an ideal solution for reducing construction costs, and in an area with a swamp and peat bogs is the only possible option. True, this foundation is suitable for the construction of wooden or frame cottages. If the house is built of foam concrete, brick or stone, then you can not do without a strong monolithic foundation. For example, concrete slab or concrete tape.
At the third stage, it is time to select building materials that will be used directly to build. In addition to the aforementioned type of foundation, there are also many other factors that depend on both the preferences of the owner of the house and the availability of money. For example, a wooden cottage will cost many times cheaper than brick. Moreover, that the tree has a lot of “pluses”, including the natural nature of the material, a more aesthetic look. The same house made of wood is beneficial for health, you feel comfort and comfort in it. At the same time, there are its “disadvantages”, the main of which is a high danger from the point of view of the fire. The most affordable version of a wooden cottage is logs, which are log walls, ceilings, floor beams and roof. True, log houses tend to shrink, as a result of which the building can decrease to 5 % of the initial height of the walls. For this, the construction of such a house is divided into two stages. The first is the installation of structures for shrinkage and installing a temporary roof. In this state, the log house should stand for a year. Then, during the second stage, interior decoration, installation of communications, installation of doors and windows is carried out.
By the way, a lot of trouble is the power supply of the house, which is located far beyond the city. As a rule, it is better to contact specialists who will conduct a kind of energy audit here. After all, today’s technologies open a wide field to provide electricity, and it seems that understandable solutions are not always obvious. For example, many people like the audit of the heating system. In the cold season, heating and hot water costs sharply, and as a result, residents need to give a considerable part of their earnings to pay for utilities. But these expenses can be minimized. For example, installing pumps for accelerated water pumping in heating batteries. Warm floors will not hurt.
All these stages with competent planning will make a consistent scheme for the construction of their country house. This can save precious time and no less precious cash.
