The project of a residential or country house up to 120 square meters with a well-thought-out layout will allow even a large family to live comfortably in a cottage, which occupies a small area on a plot. Perhaps the conditions will seem somewhat limited, but there is always the possibility of building a second or basement floor, where it will even be possible to equip a sauna.
Layouts of one-story cottages
In construction companies, houses with dimensions of 100-120 sq. m are considered to be medium-sized housing. That is, it is far from a "hut", although not quite a mansion. When the owners can afford the basement level, the second or basement floors, the attic, the status of housing changes dramatically. As a result, the best homes will be compact and spacious, making this type of housing not only spacious but also multifunctional. You can create a house project yourself or order from a construction company. Such a solution reduces the time for the construction of a structure, since binding to the terrain, calculating the laying of communications and others require serious attention and time.
If the family lives in rented housing and needs to build their own as soon as possible, then it is more correct to build a house with simple shapes, rectangular or square outline. Laying out bay windows, built-in terraces, verandas, porches, multi-gable roofs will take much more time.
However, if the owner does not experience a shortage of funds and time, then you can build a house with a complex structure, because it looks much more interesting, and inside it can be much more comfortable.
The type of foundation, material for the construction of walls are of no less importance. For example, the installation of a strip monolithic foundation takes at least 30 days for pouring and curing concrete. Arrangement of the pile foundation will not only significantly reduce the time, but also reduce its cost. Preliminary calculations, geodetic studies will show whether it is possible to choose a similar type on existing soil. In order not to be mistaken in determining a sufficient area for a comfortable stay of all family members, a good layout is needed.
A one-story house is enough for a small family of 3-4 people. To create a comfortable space, the entire layout must be carefully and carefully thought out.
One-storey cottage a little over 120 m2
Despite the limited size, the building provides 3 spacious bedrooms, one of which is designed for parents' use, 2 others are given over to children's rooms. The nearly 13-meter kitchen contains not only a cooking area, but also a dining area. At the same time, the hall and corridor occupy a reasonable area, not taking away extra meters from the living quarters, but remaining quite spacious. The combined bathroom contains everything you need, there is enough space for a washing machine. As you can see, a lot depends on a competent approach to the arrangement of rooms and the square meters that they occupy.
Finnish house with carport
Finnish frame houses built of laminated veneer lumber are distinguished by their external simplicity and good thermal insulation. The drawing was made for a house with dimensions of 9.3x10.4 meters for a family of 3-4 people. The house includes a sauna, a spacious kitchen-dining room, a large living room and 2 bedrooms. There was enough space for a dressing room, a pantry, a boiler room with two entrances. The car will be sheltered from precipitation under a canopy. For a comfortable stay in the fresh air, 2 terraces have been built, one of which is slightly larger than the other.
Plans for two-story houses
Projects of two-story houses up to 120 squares have a much larger area than a building of 1 level. This gives a higher degree of comfort, as well as a great advantage in the planning and zoning of the interior space.
Such houses, built within the city limits, are the most successful option, since the development of the private sector there is extremely dense.
Cottage on 2 floors for 110 squares for a large family
The project includes 4 rooms of various sizes, 2 bathrooms, a living room with access to the kitchen. The kitchen is 9.7 sq. m has enough area to install a large dining table in it, which can be placed around all family members. In addition to the kitchen, from the living room you can get into the hall, the corner room and the second floor. Doors lead from the hall to a combined bathroom and a furnace, from where there is a second exit to the street. The central exit from the house is separated from the hall by a vestibule, which prevents the transfer of street dirt into the house. There is a spacious porch in front of the vestibule. On the second floor there are 4 more rooms, the purpose of which depends on the preferences of the owners, and a second bathroom, eliminating the need to go down to the first floor.
House with an attic for a summer residence or for permanent residence
The layout of this house is not designed for a large family, despite the fact that it has a little less than 120 squares. It's all about the spacious rooms on the ground floor. The large living room goes into a spacious kitchen, from which you can get into the hall, where there are doors to the bathroom and hallway. There is also a staircase to the attic. The panoramic window in the living room swings open to the terrace. The street door opens onto the porch. The attic layout provides for a children's room and a parent's bedroom, as well as a large bathroom with a bathtub.
