Frame houses are the basis of low-rise housing around the world, they are especially popular in the Scandinavian countries, Germany, Japan, USA. Such constructions are valued for low construction costs (compared to houses made of stone or wood), plus, they are distinguished by high energy efficiency during operation - they are not inferior to houses from profiled timber and show themselves excellently in difficult climatic conditions.
When building a frame house is considered, the price per m², work and deadlines are the issues that interest the future homeowners most. Among the various solutions to the housing problem, frame houses differ in the speed of construction. Having made a decision to build in the spring, the owners will be able to spend the whole summer in the country, caring for the lawn and inviting friends for a barbecue.
The technology of frame construction does not impose restrictions on the size and number of floors. Buildings of 3–4 floors are common, and in some countries higher ones up to 7 floors and structures are legally permitted. In any case, to start construction, you need a project.
Documentation development is carried out with the help of specialized computer programs, and therefore does not take a lot of time. Perhaps the customer has his own architectural project, otherwise you can use the catalog of ready-made options, which has any reputable company.
The sample is taken as a basis for the layout that the customer likes. The specialist coordinates with the client the parameters of the structure (size, area, number of floors, the presence of an attic, the need for a balcony). The thickness of the walls is also coordinated, dimensions are put down, the number and arrangement of rooms is determined, materials for decoration are selected.
The data are processed by the program, the output is the finished drawings and calculations (the number of profiles, insulation, finishing). At this stage, the cost of turnkey construction (or installation of a frame without finishing) is determined and entered into the estimate. The construction contract is concluded after drawing up the project documentation.
Changes, introduced into a typical project, increase its cost, as they spend extra time. Individual design of a house of 100 m² with balconies and bay windows can take much longer (and cost much more expensive) than the revision of a typical project of 200 m².
The cost of ready-made typical projects offered on the Internet starts from 5-11 thousand rubles. (houses up to 50 m²), 7-14 thousand rubles. (houses 50-100 m²), 8-15 thousand rubles. (houses 100-150 m²), from 15 thousand rubles. (houses from 200 m²). The right move is to order a project from a company that will build your home; documentation in most cases will be developed free of charge.
Construction of a turnkey frame house (together with design and manufacture at the plant) takes 1.5-2 months. This includes laying the foundation, mounting communications and finishing. Timing of assembly of the frame depends on the characteristics of the project. Assembly of the hozblok, bath, garage or change houses can be completed in half a day. Installation of a medium complexity construction will take from 1 to 3 weeks.
The final amount is determined by several parameters:
Construction materials costs are an important part of the costs that you can try to reduce. Choosing plywood and clapboard, many prefer materials of domestic production, as cheaper. Choosing a roof covering, materials for hydro and vapor insulation, they stop on the products of foreign firms. On average, the distribution of finances is as follows:
The cost of building a frame house per m² (single storey, in the Moscow region); turnkey is:
This is 1.3 times cheaper when compared with houses made of lumber, 1.7 times less with housing made of foam concrete, 2.2 times with buildings made of brick.
On our website you can familiarize yourself with the most popular projects of frame houses from construction companies represented at the exhibition houses "Low-rise Country".
The technology of the basic option (from 12-14 thousand rubles / m²) includes the steps:
Many companies offer improved equipment (from 25-30 thousand rubles / m²). If the project provides, the basement, garage, an attic is arranged.
On our site you can find contacts of construction companies that offer the service of designing frame houses. Directly to communicate with representatives, you can visit the exhibition of houses "Low-rise Country".
The calculation of the cost of installation performed by the workers is based on the average profile salary in the region. It also takes into account the number of people employed at the construction site, and the time spent on installation.
Let the average builder's salary be 35 thousand rubles. / month (for December 2017, Moscow). A team of 5 people spends on assembly 2 months. Multiplying these three numbers, we get the amount of 35,000 * 5 * 2 = 350 thousand rubles.
When choosing a team it is useful to compare the rates of several teams, sometimes they differ significantly. The cost of work on the frame house is also influenced by objective factors:
We order a house, we produce it at the factory, we assemble it as in Ikea - about this, see the following video:
Formally, how much a frame house costs can be determined based on the area of the structure; in this case, the area and the rate for 1 m² set by the brigade or the executing company is multiplied.

Before calculating the cost of your home, it is useful to ask what area the construction team uses in the calculations. Often, it is not the total area (specified in the project), but the working area (of all the surfaces of the frame).
So, if the brigade’s rates indicate 1300 rubles. / m² installation, the customer can happily calculate that the assembly will cost 130 thousand rubles. (with an area of 100 m). In fact, the construction of only one external wall (3x3 m, surface area 3 * 3 = 9 m²) will cost 9 * 1300 = 11,700 rubles. The same operation should be done with the rest of the walls (including the interior) and floors.
The cost of installing the truss system and the roof is calculated separately, as well as subsequent operations, including plating, insulation and finishing. In some cases, the cost of assembly work may be higher than the cost of materials.
From what is the cost of a frame house of 126m2, see the following video:
In practice, there are other options for calculating the cost of work:
The cost of work on the construction of a frame house increases due to additional costs caused by:
Since the cost of installation payment is half (and sometimes more) of the total amount of expenses, it is logical to save on payment for work that they try to do it in several ways:

Conclusion: in the overwhelming majority of cases, by saving money here and now, you almost inevitably lose much more - nerves and time in the near future, plus a high probability of redoing work in a somewhat distant place. It seems reasonable to contact a professional construction company (preferably with recommendations); 4-5 people are enough to build a frame house and it’s better not to save on their qualifications.

Having decided to build a frame house, the future owner seeks to choose the best option at the best price. Home furnishing is limited only by the amount that the customer is ready to allocate for the project, materials and construction technology.It doesn’t matter whether it is a typical project or an individually designed elite cottage, houses built using frame technology cope with all the challenges of mid-latitudes - winds, bitter cold and autumn dampness.
