Projects of compact country houses and cottages are in steady demand. Such buildings are comfortable enough for an average-sized family - each of the residents can get their own room. Small house is especially valuable if the land is small or inconvenient in shape. In this case, choosing a project of house 7 by 9, two-storey or with an attic, you get the opportunity not only to get a full-fledged housing, but also to save maximum space for other useful things (garden, gazebos or baths).
Compact two-story houses have a number of undeniable Benefits:
Finance Savings . A small area of the house means a small basement area, which, however, must be strong enough to withstand two floors. If you are determined to build a brick house, you may not be able to save on the foundation. But, if you choose a log or frame house and abandon the basement room, the savings are real.
Area Savings . Obvious benefits for a small plot of land. A two-storey project of a 7x9 house can have a living area from 90 to 126 m 2 (depending on the project features). The construction of such a cottage will free up additional space, which will allow to decorate the site with a gazebo or treat yourself to a bath.
Presentable appearance . A two-story building has much more opportunities to look solid than a house with one floor. The image plays both height and architectural possibilities - the design of the facade, the shape of the roof, balconies and bay windows.
Flexible planning . Even a modest two-storey cottage has significant potential in the division of internal space. As a rule, on the first floor the family spends most of the day, the second floor is intended for recreation.
Effective design . An additional bonus (which sometimes becomes the main argument when choosing a two-story house) is the opportunity to have a living room with a second light. This design (when there are no ceilings in the room) creates the effect of spaciousness and looks very stylish.
Emotional comfort . Life on the second floor is felt by many as more comfortable, especially if the house is surrounded by a picturesque landscape.
There are two-storey housing and disadvantages associated with the design features:
Complex communications . Additional financial costs will require the organization of wiring heating, water supply and sanitation. You will also need an elaborate system of ventilation and electrical wiring.
Ladder . Even a modest-sized staircase will require 4-5 m 2 on each floor. And taking into account the hall in front of it (another 4-5 m 2 on each floor), the area occupied by this necessary device can reach up to 18-20 m 2 .
In addition, the stairs absorb a considerable amount part of the useful area (sometimes up to 20%!), it is a potential source of risk for the youngest and oldest family members. On the other hand, the space occupied by the stairs is not completely lost - under it you can arrange a pantry or a spacious wardrobe.
Balcony . Who has not dreamed of drinking a cup of coffee (or tea) on the balcony, enjoying the surrounding views and the singing of birds! In fact, everything is much more prosaic. Few people want to endlessly warp a tray between the first (where the kitchen is usually located) and the second floor. Especially if a cozy terrace adjoins the kitchen, and the living room has a fireplace. A balcony can significantly increase the cost of building a house, which does not affect its benefit - in most cases it is practically not used.
Country house 7 by 9, two-storey, half-mansard or mansard, in most cases provided for year-round living. For construction, any construction technology is used, but mostly cottages are made of such materials:
Brick . Brick walls are a good option, but it requires a solid foundation and is more expensive than other materials.
Gas and foam blocks . You can get a budget and high-quality housing, not inferior to the comfort of brick and wooden buildings.
Tree . More often projects from a usual (planed) or profiled bar are offered.Houses from glued timber have higher operational characteristics, but they are more expensive.
Frame Structures . They allow you to save on the foundation (because they have a small weight). Technological and often undervalued option.
When choosing a 7x9 house, particular attention should be paid to the construction of the second floor, on which the final size of the useful area depends (sometimes important). Constructive top floor is chosen from the following options:
Full second floor . In such a house, the areas of the first and second floors coincide, and under the roof there is a cold attic. The building has a maximum usable area.
Semi-loft . In this project, the external walls on the second floor are reduced, and the ceiling has a significant slope. The design of the premises imposes certain restrictions - the ceiling slope makes it difficult to place furniture and move people.
Attic . The walls of the premises of the second floor are shifted inside the structure. The ceiling has a quite acceptable small slope, but in general the second floor has a minimum usable area. Despite the reduction in living space, many agree to put up with restrictions that are somewhat offset by the original appearance of the attic space.

Despite the small area, the layout of the house 7 by 9 allows you to include all the necessary for a comfortable living space and an extension (garage, terrace or veranda). Projects are complemented by a porch, bay windows or a balcony, as well as a high-grade fireplace.

The project area is approximately 90-100 m 2 . In a rationally executed floor-by-floor planning, the rooms are divided as follows:
On the first floor . Here they plan a place for a hallway (often located near a wardrobe or pantry), a boiler room and a bathroom. The living room is often combined into a common space with a kitchen and dining room. The area of the first floor can be slightly increased by means of a bay window.

On the second floor . It provides three or four bedrooms, surrounding hall, bathroom. The living area of the house can be supplemented by a two-story bay window.

Comparing a relatively dimensional one-story house 9 to 9, a two-story project of a 7x7 house is economically most justified if the number of corridors and halls is minimized. When choosing a project you should pay attention to the total area of useless square meters. There are options in which the total area of such premises can reach 30% of the total living area, which is completely unacceptable. Construction companies offer a variety of projects of country houses with the possibility of their implementation.
Projects can be of two types:
Typical . Such projects are convenient in that they are adapted to the region of construction (they take into account climatic conditions and soil parameters).The customer can make changes (minor ones are free, significant ones are paid additionally). If you order not only the project, but also the construction of a house, the project is usually cost free.
Original . You can order the project in the original design style or with a non-standard layout, and it will be designed from scratch.

On the other hand, in a two-story dwelling, the usable space on the second floor is not limited to the roof structure, which provides its advantages: full-sized rooms for which you can install large windows and the use of a loft.
