Almost everyone dreams of their own home, where it would be pleasant to return after work. However, the implementation of this beautiful idea can take a lot of time and effort. One of the most important stages in the creation of housing is the preparation of a project. This article will talk about the layouts of houses 6x9 sq. m.
Features of the
The layout of the future dream home should take into account all the nuances - every centimeter of usable area should be involved.
In a small house, it is necessary to create a beautiful interior, correctly arrange furniture so that the stay is as convenient and comfortable as possible.
Dwellings measuring 6 by 9 m² are classified as economy segment. The fact is that for private housing these dimensions are very modest. Although, if you compare such a house with an apartment, it no longer seems so small. We can say that the parameters of a small-sized private house are comparable to a standard "kopeck piece".
The selection of materials is usually done at the planning stage of the construction. You need to understand what is better to create external and load-bearing walls. Each material has its own characteristics, which are also taken into account during the initial stage of construction.
Foam blocks with a porous structure are often used in the construction of one-story houses. The material has several advantages:
- light weight;
- thermal insulation qualities;
- ease of installation;
- vapor permeability;
- relatively low cost;
- environmental friendliness;
- perfect block evenness.
However, the foam block also has some disadvantages:
- slabs perfectly absorb liquid (thermal insulation of the cladding structure is required);
- additional reinforcement is often needed (especially important when using gas blocks and foam blocks).
Wood has been used as a building material for one-story houses from time immemorial. Small wooden houses with a cozy attic look great and are very comfortable to live in. Modern variations of beams and logs are beautiful, practical and durable.
Wood is environmentally friendly, a pleasant microclimate is created from this material in the house. The only drawback of wood is that it needs to be treated with special impregnations against fires and decay.
If necessary, structural elements made of wood need to be restored from time to time. However, if we are talking about houses that are small in area, then caring for them will not take much time and will not require superpowers.
Ceramic blocks and bricks
Brick is famous for its reliability and durability. However, brick houses have a large mass, so the foundation for such housing must be very solid.
Ceramic blocks are much lighter than ordinary bricks. The material has a porous structure, and voids are created inside it. Due to this, the blocks have a lightweight design, retain heat well, although their strength is slightly lower.
The frame version has been quite popular lately. This is due to the simplicity of the construction of such structures, as well as the demand for the materials used. Many owners of private houses are imbued with more and more confidence in frame buildings, since the first frame frames appeared several decades ago and are still successfully used today.
In fact, a frame house can be assembled like an ordinary constructor. The construction of the building can be done at any time of the year, while the buildings remain warm and comfortable. However, a wooden frame requires special care, more careful than structures made of logs or beams.
Choosing a project option
Before starting construction work, it is necessary to draw up a detailed plan of the house. This is the plan that specialists will use when building. There are a huge number of ready-made projects that differ in their own advantages and features. The choice of a project depends on the tastes of the owner of the site, as well as on many other important nuances.
The beautiful terrace is perfect for relaxing in the warm season. This is a kind of transition zone between the living space and the street. Usually, the entrance to the terrace is made from the side of the living room, however, there are other options.
The main functional characteristics of the terrace need to be considered at the design stage.
The open type of construction is able to decorate any summer cottage, country house or cottage. The adjoining rooms will always be warm and cozy. However, you can relax on the open terrace only when there is no precipitation and in warm weather.
A beautiful canopy will save space from the hot sun and frequent rains. The terrace can always be converted into a functional veranda. For this option, it is necessary to provide for the installation of special fences and balustrades.
Many projects of houses with closed terraces should imply minimal illumination of adjacent rooms due to the canopy. Single-storey buildings or buildings on two levels provide for the installation of a partial shed. This option will keep the terrace from rain and snow, and will also increase the natural light in the adjacent rooms.
There are several important nuances
- If the terrace faces south, the house will always be perfectly lit. To make it convenient to relax in such a space in the summer, experts recommend installing a canopy.
- If the terrace looks to the west, then the house is best lit in the afternoon. This is very convenient if the owners prefer to relax at this particular time of the day. The closed structure will protect the resting place from westerly winds and precipitation.
- If the terrace is set up on the east side, then in the morning it will be flooded with pleasant sunlight. In the summer, in the afternoon, the structure will not let in direct sunlight, and the owners of the house will be able to enjoy their vacation in a pleasant shade.
- When mounted on the north side, the lighting will be diffused. Children can play in the open area, here you can hold family feasts and just relax.
The attic is a very comfortable additional space that will decorate both country and city dwellings.
When creating a building plan, it is necessary to carry out thermal insulation with special care, since cold air can penetrate from the attic
Also, you need to pay attention to the choice of building material for lining the attic and choose a waterproofing option.
If you carefully consider each point of work to create the perfect attic, the additional room will delight you with comfort.
The most popular roofs for mansard rooms are three
Broken line. Before us is the most popular option, which is also called a mansard roof. The roof slopes are set at a steep angle, due to which the area of the attic room increases many times over
Hip roof. A very functional option that is perfect for polygonal buildings. However, only specialists will be able to cope with the installation of such a roof: the process has a lot of nuances and is rather difficult
Semi-hip. This roof configuration is available in a variety of options. A distinctive feature of such a roof is the material covering from four sides, respectively, the structure is obtained without a gable.The base perfectly tolerates precipitation and weather changes
For attics, other types of roofs are also used (for example, pitched roofs), but most of the other options reduce the area of the attic.
There are options for planning a house with a stove, but experts do not recommend using this heating method, since it simply will not be enough for 54 sq. m
The garage is a necessary room that can be attached to the house. However, when planning work, you need to pay attention to the appearance of the entire building as a whole. If the house itself has a narrow and elongated shape, then it is best to attach a garage as a "continuation" of the structure. If the building is in the shape of a square, which is considered ideal, you can create a parking space for cars anywhere.
Quite often, you can find plans in which a basement is provided. In this case, this is where the garage can be located. Thanks to this solution, it will be possible to save space and transform the appearance of the building.
A steam room or a bathhouse can be located nearby. In the basement, such premises will not interfere with anyone, and they can always be used for their intended purpose.
Rebuilding the basement into a convenient garage is especially relevant when it comes to a small plot. This solution will significantly increase the overall parameters of the house, while the site will remain intact. The attic can also be used as an additional room that will perform different functions.
Arrangement of rooms
The dimensions of 6 by 9 are extremely small, so it is better not to spend even one useful centimeter on decorating a corridor or hall. Functionally few people need these premises, but they take up a lot of space. It is better to create a layout from the very beginning in which even the smallest area of free space will be used wisely. For such a solution, a special layout of all rooms is relevant.
Bedroom and living room
A special type of layout is perfect for elderly spouses or couples without children. The secret of the layout is that it is necessary to divide the two main rooms in the house: the living room and the bedroom.
This option can be considered a classic, since it is often found in the design of a two-room studio. According to the layout, the living room is an open space that is combined with the kitchen. The area of the largest room turns out to be tangible - 20-30 meters. This space can be used as you wish.
The living room becomes a kind of passage through which you can get to the bathroom, hallway or bedroom. On occasion, the room becomes a guest room. The tambour is combined with the hallway.
If the layout involves reducing the parameters of the rooms, then you can equip a terrace near the house
The disadvantage of such a layout is the absence of a master's room, as well as a boiler room. Any pumping or heating devices will be located in the bathroom or kitchen. Heating is possible only local - with the help of heaters. It is simply impossible to install a boiler with such a layout - there is not enough space.
Bedroom and kitchen
The layout is perfect for a small garden house or miniature summer cottage. This option is relevant for a couple without children. It is also suitable if one person will live in the house. The living space is divided into two parts: one contains a wide bedroom, and the other contains a boiler room and a kitchen area.
The bathroom, vestibule and hallway divide the building in half. The hall becomes a kind of hallway, but in such a small space it is almost impossible to place cabinets or cabinets for storing things. Four doors will open onto a small area at once.
The bedroom has two windows. The boiler room also has natural light. This room has a separate entrance, as it should be by safety standards.The bathroom has no windows, so the lighting is artificial. If desired, the bathroom will fit not only a shower cabin - it is possible to place a bathtub.
Bedroom, living room and dressing room
Before us is one of the most ergonomic options, which provides for the placement of all the necessary rooms in a small area.
The house is divided into 2 parts from the central entrance. The tambour becomes a hallway from which you can go to the boiler room. Another door from a kind of corridor leads to the guest room, which is connected to the kitchen. The kitchen, living room and dining room are perfectly combined into one space. All guests and the hosts themselves will be able to comfortably accommodate here.
In the second part of the house there will be a bedroom, a dressing room and a bathroom. The boiler room, bedroom and wardrobe are all equipped with one window; natural light is provided in these rooms.
The living room will have two windows at once. There will be no windows in the toilet and hallway.
The only drawback of the layout can be considered an exit to the bathroom from the bedroom. This is convenient for the owners themselves, but it is very inconvenient if guests appear in the house.
