A lot of effort and nerves will have to be spent in the way to embody the idea of building your own home. This does not have to be a capital house, which can be moved to the whole family. The main preparatory stages of the construction of a small summer house and a large mansion are not much different.
After receiving the necessary permission for the land, the issue of choosing a project arises. And then this issue needs to be approached as seriously as possible. The customer, of course, most often imagines what he would like. At least in general. The opinion is formed on the basis of the study of various magazines, catalogs, previously seen houses and the advice of friends, relatives and neighbors.
It is important to remember that no advice and recommendations should be taken literally. Some moments are purely personal. They deserve special attention. Often the project of the future home is chosen mainly on the basis of available financial opportunities. However, it is important to take into account the composition of the family, the landscape of the selected area. It is better to entrust the preparation of a landscape project to professionals, for example, Avtorsad. Independent search for the ideal solution can often lead to wasted money and time, and a negative result. Usually, during the construction of a private residential building, attention is also paid to the arrangement of neighboring houses. Goals in this case can be set diametrically opposed. From the desire to “not stand out” to the quite ambitious desire to “not be like everyone else”. Professional architects in such cases are advised to find a middle ground. It is not necessary to strictly adhere to one design theme, making your street even more monotonous. But the harmony should not be broken. The individuality of the house should reflect the taste and style of the owner.
As before any serious undertaking, it makes sense to clearly define your desires. Will it be a solid house for the whole family, a large mansion in a prestigious area, or just a small nest.
Most often, when choosing a project for a future home, it is advised to rely on a few simple rules. Avoid bulky structures. A big house is certainly not bad, but the costs will be appropriate. This refers not only to the cost of the construction itself, but also to operating costs. And this is not only the cost of light and heating, although these amounts can already hit the budget hard. Big house is harder to maintain. Routine cleaning can take several days, and repairs (which will definitely be required over time) will result in many years of hassle. And furniture to furnish a large mansion will not come out cheap.
