The house can have several levels, and each will have its own roof. If you choose the right lighting on the territory, then in the evening such houses with luminous windows among the natural landscape resemble fabulous houses. Sometimes in them you can catch the resemblance to Japanese buildings or pagodas
Finnish style. Favorite by many option. A distinctive feature of such a house is that it should be built of wood, usually larch or pine. Such a house, surrounded by trees and compositions of stones, looks good. Very often, an outdoor fireplace is installed in such houses, they are laid out of stones, and a terrace is also built. On it they prepare food, gather with the whole family, meet guests. Sometimes such houses are also built from aerated concrete. But at the same time, in order to preserve the main features of the style, the structure is sheathed with a board

This option allows you to choose any building material - the main thing is that everything looks harmonious.Usually, during the construction of such houses, strict geometry is observed, all the details are symmetrical, there are no special excesses. Bay windows and arched structures may be present. The shape of the windows can also be different - rectangular, rounded. Often such houses have verandas or terraces
Mediterranean style Is the embodiment of lightness and light. Most often, such houses have a tiled roof of red, orange or brown. The layout is open, which creates the illusion of spaciousness. This allows it to be made by the presence of columns, open terraces, balconies, arches, galleries. In such buildings, there may be a patio decorated with flowers in vases and pots. Walls are usually decorated in shades of white or beige. The windows are large, most often to the floor, so that nothing prevents sunlight from entering the premises
High tech. Houses in this style cannot be confused with any others. It can be a flat-roofed cube or several geometric shapes joined together. The surfaces are smooth, no decorations or frills. It is characterized by concrete surfaces and a large amount of glass. But at the same time, great attention is paid to outdoor lighting.

The advantage of a private house is that you can independently think over the layout, taking into account the needs of each family member.
If the family has children, you can give them the second floor, equipping them with separate bedrooms and a cozy hall. You will also need a separate bathroom and shower room. On the ground floor, there will then be a kitchen-living room, an adult bedroom, an office for work or another room, taking into account the hobbies and interests of the family - for example, a library or a workshop.
In another version, you can make a spacious living room on the ground floor, equip a kitchen, a bathroom. In this case, you can add an office and a guest room. The second floor is completely dedicated to bedrooms. An adult can be separated from children's rooms by a small hall.
If there are a lot of people in the family and everyone needs a room, you can make a compact kitchen-living room on the ground floor, where everyone will gather, give the rest of the space for rooms. Place two at the bottom, three at the top. At the same time, it is possible to equip a covered veranda, which will allow the whole family to have a good time.
Often the second floor appears as an attic. This also has its own charm. Then on the second floor you can make bedrooms and provide for a balcony. The attic allows creative individuals to equip a workshop there and be inspired by the surrounding landscapes, and the first will then have bedrooms and a kitchen-living room.
