If the country cottage is located on a small land plot, the house itself has a small living area and is built using the most economical building materials, then we are talking about economy class housing. At the same time, it cannot be said that the projects of economy class houses are bad. If they are implemented in compliance with all the requirements of the applied technology, then in fact it is a usual country cottage, only, for example, with less expensive plumbing and a smaller living space than a conditionally middle or VIP class home.
Country cottage economy class is the most affordable housing. During any economic crisis or during the economic recovery - it has always been and is a huge segment of the capital and Moscow suburban real estate market. As for the construction of country houses of economy class, it is generally the most popular choice in the construction of additional housing.
Specialists in this segment include cottages with the following characteristics:
built area from 80 sq. M. meters;
plots less than 12 acres;
house territory of about 1 hectare;
cost house-keeper - less than 6 million rubles;
can be located at a distance from socially significant objects;
engineering services are often not central, but individual ;
in the suburbs of economical housing is no closer than 30 km from the Moscow Ring Road.
are built according to simple standard designs that do not include optional architectural and design elements;
Since houses of this class are designed with minimal dimensions, it is very important in their planning every square meter of interior space use. First of all, thought out the composition of the premises. The house should have everything for a comfortable stay. The layout of modern private housing, regardless of its class, includes the following mandatory rooms:
Additional facilities, such as, for example, an office or library in budget homes for 6 acres, do not include projects, since you can easily do without them. At the same time, general purpose premises are usually combined into a single multifunctional space. This applies to a group of public access - hallway, living room, kitchen, dining room. Instead of several separate small rooms in the project lay one large and bright room, which then, when the interior design can be divided into zones.
The room as a hall deserves special attention in the economy house planning. Its function in the layout of the first floor can perform the hallway. The hall is planned as a common communication hub, from which you can go to any room on the floor. However, some designers prefer not to make a hall in the project, but to use a common room as a unifying unit, making it a walk-through. But this architectural course can be applied only by highly qualified specialists who can think of a living room or a dining room in such a way that it turns out to be quite comfortable, cozy and functional.
When combining a kitchen, dining room and living room, the kitchen area is located at the back of the room. The kitchen should not be a walk-through, otherwise it will not be possible to conveniently and compactly place all the necessary equipment.
In a small cottage, one bathroom is sufficient. But economical cottages are often used to accommodate large families. In such cases, you need to provide 2 bathrooms - one in the guest area and one in the bedroom. Bathrooms in two-story houses should be designed one above the other. The kitchen should adjoin the bathroom. All this will save on the installation and operation of water supply and sewage systems.
There should be no corridors in the planning of economy class houses. While in the bedrooms and in the premises of general purpose, it is desirable to plan a place for the installation of built-in furniture. It is more spacious than ordinary cabinets and dressers.

Cheap cottages are in high demand, and therefore are designed in great variety.Economy class home projects are created by architects of construction companies and are offered to customers ready for use. Today, there is a special interest in the original, for example - arched houses (projects and prices are better to learn from the artist). But a ready-made standard project with standard architectural solutions costs much less than an individual one. If you choose a good construction company and sign an agreement with it on providing a full range of services for the construction of a cottage, you can get, for example, a project of a house of 6 acres for a minimal price or for free.
When choosing a project for an economical house, you should not forget that the future housing should turn out not only inexpensive, but also reliable, practical and comfortable. Aesthetic characteristics are also important. This means that the project must be of high quality and well developed, performed by a professional.
The degree of profitability of a building depends largely on its shape. Such additional details as ledges, arches, bay windows, etc. make construction more expensive. This also applies to the roof. A complex roof with dormer windows and dormer windows is expensive in construction, and in the course of operation often requires expensive repairs. In addition, in the walls of cottages of an intricate form, "cold bridges" are formed, through which the heat leaves the premises, and this raises the cost of heating. The most optimal form for an economical house is a simple rectangle with a gable roof. If the house is attic, it is desirable to provide attic insolation through the front windows.
The materials included in the architectural development should not be cheap, but economical, that is, those that low price have good performance. For example, traditional brick is an expensive building material, therefore it is practically not used in the construction of economy class houses. But houses from cellular concrete, a log or a bar, and also frame constructions and from the building of a vulture panels turn out rather economic. At the same time, their technical characteristics in some parameters even exceed those of brick buildings.
The aesthetics of low-cost cottages are achieved through well-thought-out facade design. Without excessive decor, they look rather restrained, but this is fully in line with current trends. The main thing is to choose the texture and color shades of the exterior. She doesn't have to be expensive. To the house looked solid and presentable, you need to use cost-effective, but high-quality finish.
On our website you can find contacts of construction companies that offer the service of building houses. Directly to communicate with representatives, you can visit the exhibition of houses "Low-rise Country".
A country house is a dwelling for seasonal holidays or temporary accommodation, for example, during holidays or weekends. Many families living in city apartments acquire or build country houses in order to be able to go out into the countryside and rest there from the city rush.
Less strict requirements are imposed on the dacha house than on a cottage for permanent residence. If the owners plan to use the future home for a seasonal holiday, they can save well during construction. The savings consist primarily in the fact that such a house can be much more modest in size. It can reduce the consumption of useful space for such planning elements as:
space for installing built-in furniture;
large kitchen-dining area.
In the summer house you do not need to store as many things and household accessories as in a dwelling for permanent residence. No need and large stocks of products. If it is intended for recreation in the summer, the recreation area can be equipped in the courtyard - in the form of a terrace or a playground with a gazebo. It is in this zone that tenants will mainly spend their time. There can also be installed the main kitchen equipment. The house should still have a kitchen and a small living room, but there can be at least a place for these rooms.

The second floor can be plain or attic. Attic building is cheaper than a full floor. But with its arrangement, some space will also be lost. Recently, in European countries, instead of the attic, it has become increasingly common to build the so-called "half-floor", that is, the second floor, in which, with ordinary walls, the roof structure serves as the ceiling. If such a mezzanine is constructed from light cheap materials, then the most economical variant of a two-story structure will be obtained.
Ground floors and basements make building a house much more expensive. Therefore, for the economy of buildings is not recommended the presence of an underground level. If you need to build a single building that combines a residential building and a garage, it is better to build a cottage with an attached, rather than an underground garage.
Foam concrete is a modern wall material with good technical and performance characteristics. It is often used in the construction of economy class cottages due to the optimal ratio of price and quality. At relatively low cost, foam blocks provide the building with durability, reliability, high level of heat saving, good sound insulation.
Construction and architectural companies offer all sorts of ready-made projects of country houses from economy class foam blocks. Foam concrete walls do not need additional thermal insulation, while they are characterized by an almost perfect smooth surface.
