A bathhouse in a country house is more often seen as indispensable than simply the desired attribute of comfort, and the question is not "yes or no", but "which one to choose." If the site is small, then it is worthwhile to dwell on proposals from construction companies to build a turnkey 4x4 bath - the price of such projects correlates well with comfort. And if you need more space, then projects with an attic will add the missing square meters of usable space.
The price of baths, even of the same size, depends on the complexity of the design, the type and quantity of materials used. The box is mainly assembled from a rounded log or a bar - profiled from solid or glued. The service "turnkey" completely excludes the participation of the developer at all stages of construction. The project is chosen as a model or is developed individually, taking into account all the wishes of the customer.
Despite the fact that the building has modest dimensions, the interior space can be successfully divided into functional rooms. The end result is a comfortable and neat bath. Planning bath 4x4 m with a total area of 16 square meters. includes all standard rooms :
Washing or shower;
If a 4x4 sauna is being built, the layout can have a variety of options. For example, under one roof you can have a terrace or a small porch. If you wish to increase the area without capturing additional territory of the site, you will need to erect the 2nd floor where the rest room will be located. The two-story structure is the most practical, as it takes up little space on the plot. The disadvantage is the higher cost compared to a single-story building.
When planning the premises, there are practically no problems, but there may be some nuances that are connected with the water supply system or the construction of sewage systems. Therefore, questions on the connectivity of communication networks should be considered at the stage of project development. On this depends not only the location of the steam room, sink and bathroom, as well as where the windows and doors will be located.
Bath projects 4x4 from a bar in a wide range are presented in the construction company catalog. A standard interior layout is provided for each sketch.
When choosing a project the following should be considered:
What is being built for - just to bathe or organize a rest.
Sizes of each functional room. If the main focus is on the steam room, then its area should correspond to the planned number of people. For increase in the place combination with washing is possible.
Special attention is paid to ventilation, power supply and fire safety. A bath built according to all the rules and requirements brings not only moral satisfaction, but also benefits.
If the box is built from natural material - logs, then the surface is mechanically polished. After this procedure, the exterior walls take on a neat appearance. So that the material can withstand negative external influences, fire and insects the surface of the logs is treated with special compounds. Finishing the application of paints emphasizes the beauty and structure of the wood. After this treatment, the wood will last more than one year.
To give the bath a modern look, the outer walls are sheathed:
Siding panels for facades . The most used materials are metal block house, shipboard. A cost-effective option involves the use of vinyl siding, which is well tolerated in any weather conditions, including not exposed to ultraviolet radiation.
Wall cladding for external use (plastic or wood).
There are other options for finishing the exterior walls of the bath. This is an imitation of natural stone or torn brick. The advantage of this plating is the original appearance of the building. But we must remember that additional finishing works and materials entail a significant increase in the cost of the entire construction. Therefore, choosing a 4x4 sauna project, these points should be taken into account.
The decision on what will be the interior decoration of the premises is also taken at the design stage. Often, typical projects from the catalog already provide for various options for interior decoration.
When choosing a material, preference is given to the following characteristics:
Easy to use and quick to install.
The modern construction market offers a wide range of cladding material. The leader is clapboard lime or aspen. Be sure to perform insulation walls. Minvat or ecowool are suitable for this procedure. Foil material is used for covering the walls of the steam room, which reflects the pairs and improves the thermal insulation properties of the building.
Special attention is paid to the finishing at the place of installation of the furnace, which can be wood or electric. A fire resistant material is used as a lining. It can be metal sheets, brick, natural stone, ceramic tile or porcelain stoneware.
