The first and most important stage of construction

The next stage of construction is laying the foundation of the future house. One of the best options for the foundation is strip. It is formed by rubble concrete blocks that are located along the perimeter. They are combined with pillars.

Subsequent stages of work

The next stage of work is the construction of the frame. It needs to be built on an already prepared foundation..

Advice! To make the structure safer, the elements that are in the ground should be covered with waterproofing. And the parts coming out of the foundation should be passed through the slots in the roofing material and filled with hot bitumen. Install load-bearing girders on top of the waterproofing.

Design features

When planning the design of a hut, you should think about both its exterior and interior. This type of construction is very popular in the Scandinavian countries, in particular in Sweden. Therefore, for inspiration, you can safely turn to ready-made constructive solutions developed by Scandinavian designers. The optimal stylistic solutions for a hut house are as follows:

  • Scandinavian style;
  • Chalet;
  • hunting;
  • minimalism.

The Swedish version of the hut also provides a separate entrance, which is located on the roof. You can get to it through the balcony and the stairs leading to it..

If the entrance to the structure is raised above ground level, then it will be possible to enter and exit the house even with strong snowdrifts. Therefore, consider this option in case of a snowy winter..

Windows deserve special attention. If you opt for large models, then they will offer excellent views of the countryside. Such windows, moreover, will make the rooms more spacious and bright. Huge windows with triangular sashes are a worthy option for a stylish hut. However, there is a risk of freezing in winter. Provide heavy wood shutters to keep out the cold to trap heat.

Triangular shutters will also be used in the summer. With the help of special ropes, pulleys and supports, they can be folded up. In this case, you will get a real terrace. Shutters will protect you from the scalding rays of the sun.

Interior planning

When planning the interior of a hut, you should be especially careful. So, if you use classic country furniture, then you run the risk of turning the building into a small closet. The unusual shape of the rooms requires non-standard furniture and original design solutions.

At the same time, this form of rooms should not be considered a disadvantage. Such an original layout can be interesting to “beat”. Alternatively, you can abandon the standard zoning, which will make the space more spacious. An excellent idea for the kitchen would be to use a design of an unusual shape instead of a standard kitchen set. For example, the cooking area can be designed as a free-standing ball. In any case, you will most likely have to make custom-made furniture, since the models on sale do not take into account the peculiarities of your home..

With such a design in the interior, it is better to abandon unnecessary furniture that will clutter up the space. Decor elements and other decorations should also be used to a minimum, otherwise they threaten to weigh down an already compact space. Therefore, for a house-hut, styles such as minimalism or Scandinavian are most suitable..

In addition, the interior of a country house should not compete with the beauty of the countryside. Therefore, the interior should only organically complement nature..

The best option for a house in the form of a hut would be a two-story structure. If common rooms are located on the first floor, then on the second floor it is preferable to arrange premises for personal use (bedrooms, offices).

At the same time, the staircase connecting the floors can be successfully “beaten” by harmoniously fitting it into the interior. Ideal if it is made of wood. As a decor, nearby walls can be decorated with collages, paintings, photographs.

For inspiration, it is advisable to turn to fresh ideas from foreign designers. So, in our country, this type of construction is chosen solely because of its low cost. At this time, abroad, choosing this design, people strive, first of all, for environmental friendliness, comfort and coziness..

European designers are increasingly turning to the structure in the form of a hut when designing country houses. As a result, very interesting and original options are obtained. The example of Dutch architects, who developed a modernized version of this structure, is especially indicative here. In addition to the bright style and unique design, such a house is functional, compact and neat. All this makes it convenient for permanent residence. In addition, the design blends in harmoniously with the surrounding landscape..

For the interior decoration, the architects used predominantly white color, which visually expands the space and emphasizes the ecological character of the building. The house has a minimum amount of furniture. It is also a conscious decision to achieve the same goal..

Thus, before deciding on a hut, you should consider how significant the disadvantages of this design are for you. Consider whether you plan to live permanently in this house, or if it will only be seasonal accommodation during the summer. You need to decide whether you will do the construction yourself, or hire a team.
