Choosing a project for a future home is an interesting and at the same time difficult business. Construction organizations specializing in the construction of suburban structures have in their arsenal numerous projects of houses and cottages, which they provide for consideration by customers. It should be said right away that the process of finding the best project rarely ends quickly.

To get as a result what would bring complete satisfaction means the fulfillment of the conditions set. These include:

  • External parameters of the structure (length, width, height). The number of people who will live in the house is taken into account. If this is a large family, the house should be spacious so that everyone feels comfortable in it. In the case when it is planned to install a guest house or the family is so small that a large house is irrelevant, they stop at small-sized buildings.
  • The main material of the structures from which the house will be built. More often it is a block, brick or wood.
  • Floors of the house. This part of the conditions is a sub-item determined during the selection of the main external dimensions.
  • Determining the configuration of the roof, as well as the type of its coverage.
  • Determining the interior layout. This includes the distribution of the position of internal walls and partitions. Differentiation by functional areas: rooms for adults, for children, kitchen, corridor, bathrooms and so on. An important point. Internal load-bearing walls are marked out during the development of the foundation. In low-rise construction, a tape type of foundation is common. It is convenient for axial breakdown for the internal layout.

At the time of making the decision to build a country house, many people are not yet fully aware of what exactly they want to see. Help to make a choice can be in specialized construction companies, where customers turn to when looking for acceptable options. First of all, photos of house projects are provided to their attention.

The versatility of the provision of services increases the chances of getting an order for construction work, and, accordingly, earning income. Therefore, almost all firms involved in the construction of country-type houses are trying to satisfy the needs of both the most wealthy category of customers, and somewhat limited in funds.

Projects of one-story houses express a cheaper type of construction. However, in addition to this factor, a significant role is played by the division of types of projects into standard and individual (exclusive).

Brief content of the article:

Typical or custom project?

Each type of design has its advantages and disadvantages. In the case of choosing the first option, that is, a standard project, the benefit will be traced mainly in financial terms. But at the same time, the house will significantly lose in external and internal design. In other words, it will be devoid of special design frills.

However, already at the stage of direct work, at the request of the customer, any standard project can be adjusted. For example, quite often people come to the decision to replace simple types of one-story buildings with an upper attic with projects of houses with an attic.

As funds are raised, the original single-story home designs may no longer be the most viable option, and the customer may change the category of the order to a more complex design that includes two-story home projects.

Under the terms of the contract concluded with the construction company, the customer has the right to make changes to the project. Thus, often simple standard projects are replaced by individual developments. Sometimes, anticipating such a turn of affairs, the customer is provided with standard projects for viewing and at the same time individual ones that are most suitable for the initially selected house.

It is mainly about the combination of materials. Their coincidence in various types of projects facilitates the work of transferring a simple type of design to a higher exclusive level. It is worth noting that nothing is impossible for true professionals, therefore, at the request of the customer, combined construction options are sometimes considered.

Installation of a wooden house according to a standard project

As already indicated above, the material from which house structures can be built is different. Brick and block houses are more expensive. Such material is often used in the construction of an individual character. In addition, you also need to take into account the prices for the work itself. Wood is a cheaper material, but in general, each type is equally popular.

Projects of wooden houses are the first thing that people who are inclined towards economical construction pay attention to. In other words, they are closer to a typical project. The advantages of this choice include reduced terms of work. Sometimes just one week is enough to put the frame and make the skin. Of course, without taking into account the foundation device.

Under good weather conditions, the complete erection of a one-story structure according to a simple project with complete exterior and interior decoration, with the implementation of electrics and the laying of engineering underground networks, takes a little more than a month.

When the customer does not intend to change anything in the future, he can order a ready-made design. Recently, this type of building has become very popular. In the construction markets, you can often find such instances. All of them are made mainly according to standard projects.

The only thing that will have to be built separately is the foundation. To speed up the time for its installation, they resort to screw types of the corresponding structures.

The main advantages of individual projects

Projects of houses made according to individual orders are distinguished by originality and exclusivity. This is a well known fact.

When the imagination of an architect and his professional level are equally high, and he is conscientious about the performance of his work, people who decide to spend money on building a house that involves an exclusive external form and non-standard internal layout can completely trust the professional qualities of the master. He must translate into reality the customer’s confidence that his house is one and only.

Here it is important to work on each element. The architectural ensemble is carefully worked out, a clear combination of all additional decorative exterior and interior elements of the house. These can be considered columns, upper ledges for the device of summer balconies.

Inside the house, in addition to determining the areas of the main and auxiliary premises and their placement relative to each other, the design of the staircase connecting the first and second floors is being developed. The most popular type is the helical lift form.

Most often, based on the pattern, which assumes that the customer has personal transport, individual projects of houses with a garage are developed. Usually, the lower level of the house is allocated for the garage, below the zero mark, to the depth of the basement. Then the level of the clean floor of the first floor will be at or above the basement mark. That is, it becomes necessary to add a porch to the house.

The design of the entrance group is also important, since it represents the front of the house and it is from it that the structure itself begins. It would be wrong to consider this element secondary. Professional designers always work out this topic to the end.

As a result, sometimes the porch turns into a real work of art. The same can be said about the outer openings under the windows. The appearance of window products may have a different configuration. This is both a standard rectangular shape and an arched type. The more original the exterior design, the higher the exclusivity of the whole house.

Installing a home fireplace is a highlight of interior design

Another additional advantage of an exclusive residential building is without a doubt considered internal zoning. The large area of ​​​​the house makes it possible to apply various layout options. These can be separate rooms or combined with a combined type of layout and isolated.

In addition to determining the delimitation of the functioning zones, it is customary to arrange fireplace designs in private homes. They are usually installed in living rooms. In winter, it is not only a decoration of the house, but also a source of heat.
