The construction of a country house on your site should begin with a rational layout that provides for the future placement of everything you need on it. And nothing more. And it would be wise to start direct work with fencing the territory and erecting some kind of primary structure.
One can doubt whether everyone can build their own large country house? But you can hone your creative skills in such a small building as a summer house. We can build it with our own hands. It is with her that the construction of a suburban area should begin. This will provide a front line of work for the future. And we can handle this.
Change house cottage with their own hands. Where to begin?
From choosing a place under it. And with a simple understanding of the fact that the cottage house, built with his own hands, should change its function over time. After the country house is built, it should become a hozblok or part of it. This is provided that we do not have extra money to build something, and then to demolish it. And therefore, the construction of the change house should be taken seriously - it will still serve us in the future.
Start with a full foundation and zero cycle. If we have plans to further transform the change house into a household unit with a bathhouse, then we should provide for further supply of communications and water disposal. But you can restrict yourself to the light foundation of the tape type, in extreme cases, it can be replaced by several horizontal piles. It is important to consult with competent people - will such a foundation withstand the load on it? Or evaluate it yourself by studying similar buildings in neighboring areas.
After the reliability of the foundation is certified, we build a change house with our own hands. There are several possible options. Most likely, you have to choose between wood and foam concrete blocks. As the supporting foundation of the entire structure, we choose a frame made of wooden beams. This material is equally reliable and technologically advanced. The frame is a vertical strut interconnected by crossbars. With openings for windows and doors in appropriate places. When assembling, we take into account the equality of the diagonals of each rectangular element of the frame frame. This ensures the reliability and stability of the entire structure as a whole.
Sheathing and roofing
There are many options for wall cladding. The fastest way is to build a change house from sheet materials such as chipboard or OSB sewn onto the bars of a frame frame. But lining or siding will look more expressively. The choice is made on the basis of financial capabilities and the intended purpose of the constructed structure. The roof is easiest to make a pitched, with a small difference in height, this will facilitate the further modernization of the change house into something more. The simplest roofing is slate or ondulin. That's it - the do-it-yourself cottage house has been erected. Summarize and analyze errors. In addition to the finished multi-purpose cabins, we have gained valuable experience in construction work. We will really need it in the future, when we begin to build a garden house with our own hands.
