With an increase in the area of the structure being erected, the costs of its construction also become much higher. That is why projects of small houses 10 by 10 meters are very popular. Like many other options, such projects may involve the use of various materials in the construction.
Before directly carrying out work on the construction of a structure, you need to choose a suitable project for a 10x10 house. They all fall into two main categories: generic and custom designed.… Typical projects are distributed on the Internet. They can be very different: they have one or two floors, a terrace, a balcony and different layouts. However, if the plot for construction has its own characteristics, then you can order a project in which they will be taken into account.
Layout of one-story houses
Due to the relatively small size of the house being built, the layout provides for the creation of only a few rooms. The main difference concerns the type of material used. Load-bearing walls can be erected:
- from foam blocks;
- from laminated veneer lumber;
- from a log house;
- made of stone.
A separate category includes layouts with large windows.… They are very popular, as such structures look quite interesting and unusual. In order to increase the usable area, an additional attic floor is often erected.
With careful insulation, it can be used as a full-fledged living space.
Each type of structure is characterized by its own specific features. Structures made of foam blocks have the following advantages:
- this material is much cheaper;
- large dimensions and low weight simplify the process of assembling load-bearing walls;
- you can do the work yourself, since the material is very easy to process;
- good thermal insulation qualities.
Glued laminated timber has become widespread. It is made by connecting individual lamellas with a special glue. The advantages of using such a bar include the following points:
- good thermal insulation;
- high strength of load-bearing structures;
- attractive appearance;
- work can be done in a short period.
The felling of the tree has been used for a long period. This material is characterized by the following features:
- the tree has high thermal insulation qualities;
- structures erected from logs shrink;
- if you do not carry out thorough surface treatment and finishing, then the logs will not last long;
- it is impossible to build a structure on your own, chopped logs are difficult to use;
- attractive appearance.
Natural stone is rarely used in the construction of load-bearing walls. This is due to the fact that the material is much more expensive and difficult to process. That is why masonry is used to create decorative elements.
Do not forget that the walls must be protected from environmental influences.
Finishing is carried out using various finishing materials
- Siding today it is used very often, since it is easier to fix it. It can be made from various raw materials and is often presented with a multilayer structure.
- Sandwich panels are considered a modern option, which is represented by a combination of various materials. They are suitable not only for decoration but also for insulation.
- Decorative plaster has been used for many years.It is applied in compliance with a special technology.
In most cases, additional thermal insulation is provided to protect the base. For this, according to the project documentation, various materials can be used, for example, mineral wool.
Recently, in a temperate climate, the frame house has been gaining popularity. It differs from the block version in many ways:
- is cheaper;
- erected faster.
Brick and block options can be called a classic type of project. The materials used in the construction of load-bearing walls can serve for a long period, while providing reliable protection of the building from environmental influences. Excellent insulation reduces the cost of purchasing insulation materials.
The layout of the internal layout can vary significantly. As a rule, the internal space is divided into one common room, bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom. There are many different examples on the Internet, so there should be no serious difficulties in finding a suitable one.
3 bedrooms and living room
When considering all the available projects, the option with three bedrooms, a living room and a kitchen should be noted. In this case, the rooms are arranged in a circle, with a small hall in the center. It is not worth expecting that the rooms will be spacious.
Usually, with a similar layout, one of the bedrooms is made the main one, increasing its area, the other two - about the same square.
The kitchen can be combined with the living room. As for the hall, it is often represented by a small room from where you can get to other rooms.
2 living rooms and a kitchen
If the rooms are to be larger, then the option with 2 bedrooms and a kitchen should be noted. In this case, both living rooms are often the same size, the kitchen is large.
In order to diversify the layout, in some cases a functional hall is created in the central part of the house, which houses a small sofa with a TV.
2 bedrooms and living room
In order to make the house more comfortable, the option with two bedrooms and a kitchen is often complemented by another living room.… This option is suitable for a large family. Sleeping rooms can be arranged in a circular pattern.
Rational use of the area involves combining the living room with the kitchen. This solution is very popular. The absence of a wall adds a few free squares that can be used to house the dining table.
With terrace and veranda
A separate category includes buildings with a terrace or veranda. As a rule, they are erected separately from the main structure.
The terrace can be open or closed. The first type is cheaper, but it is almost impossible to use in cold weather. When glazing, it is also necessary to provide for thermal insulation. This significantly increases the free space.
The functionality of the terrace can vary significantly… It is usually used for lunch or relaxation. Finishing and some other points depend on the destination.
You can create additional space by building an attic floor. It is characterized by the following points:
- is an attic space;
- as a rule, the walls are slightly beveled, while the ceiling is smaller than usual;
- in the roof, windows are often made in the form of hatches, which ensure the ingress of a large amount of natural light into the room;
- for full use in winter, high-quality insulation must be provided.
Attic options are very popular. This is due to the fact that when creating a sloped roof, free space is formed. It can be used as a living space.
Life outside the city is almost impossible to imagine without a car.In order to protect it from environmental influences, a garage is being built. In the case of a layout of 10 by 10 meters, it is represented by an extension or a separate structure.
In the case of an extension, the additional space can be used to create a living space. The main thing is to carry out high-quality insulation.
The garage can also be used to create a workshop. When choosing a project, you should consider the possibility of installing a lift, as well as creating a pit. For finishing it is recommended to use materials that are resistant to dirt and temperature changes.
An important point is the choice of the type of gate. Recently, roller shutter systems have become widespread, which can be mechanical or automatic.
Plans for one-and-a-half and two-story houses
The layout of 10 by 10 meters is often chosen due to the small area of the site. A project with two floors is most suitable for such a case. There are also several different layouts:
- the most expensive option is with a basement;
- layout options with bay windows are very popular;
- structures with a plinth are included in a separate category.
One-and-a-half-story buildings are understood as houses with an attic floor with high ceilings. A country house can be made a little easier, saving money.
The best option for a two-story house provides for the placement of common rooms on the first floor, bedrooms on the second. You can also create an additional attic or garage. If the roof of a country house is made with a large slope, it is also possible to provide for the creation of an attic or attic space.
Examples of projects
You can find a large number of different project examples. Variants with a combination of several materials or made in various styles are very popular. The following examples are worth considering:
completely wooden structure
projects with high-tech panoramic glazing are also common
a stone two-story house is a great option for a large family
a Scandinavian-style house looks good against the backdrop of nature
In conclusion, we note that 10 by 10 meters projects are ideal for building private plots within the city. A wide variety allows you to choose the most suitable option, for example: with a terrace or garage, attic or panoramic glazing.
