Modern summer residents and builders of individual houses create unusual houses according to their own fantasies and copy them from photos from all over the world.
An unusual house can be a fabulous house for gnomes (in practical implementation, it is a gazebo or a summer house stylized for a certain movie or book entourage), or a miracle of engineering calculation and skill of builders – “crooked” houses, falling houses, houses standing on the roof.
TORound houses are rarely surprising, as well as original houses in terms of plan. Summer houses with green walls and roofs are luxurious, and many species of lianas grow well in the middle zone of our country – annual bindweed and maiden grapes, hops, ivy. Today, too, you won’t surprise anyone with a green house. The types and styles of truly unusual houses are countless, and interest in them is growing. For example, “French Owls” – for a skilled carpenter, this is an excellent option for building a frame-sheathed summer house or gazebo.
The tree house is one of the most beloved in suburban areas. They erect tree houses in such a way as not to harm the growing tree: on separate strong support posts, disguised in foliage; next to a large tree hidden under the crown; for very powerful trees, it is possible to suspend a small light house or install it in a fork in the branches with fixing the supporting frame to the trunk.
The barbaric methods of attaching a house with a rigid clip to the trunk or on brackets and other types of fasteners cut into a living tree, as a result, do not justify the efforts – the tree weakens and there is no pleasure from communicating with nature. Symbiosis and obtaining healthy energy from a living tree is possible only with an ecological approach, which is proved by numerous examples of unique tree houses.
Hobbit cabins are loved all over the world thanks to Tolkien. Famous architects build houses in the hills, but the ancient entourage of houses is just a facade – in fact, underground apartments in the Swiss Alps are extremely comfortable and equipped with the latest technology, practically it is a “smart home”. In addition, the view from the windows is magnificent.
Ancient dwellings, buried in the ground up to the chimney and the upper window, had the purpose not so much to protect from winds and hurricanes and camouflage from enemies, but to keep warm. This approach is close to modern energy saving trends.
Indeed, burying the house in a Hobbit style will provide peace and quiet, year-round temperature comfort and closeness to nature. It is possible to build a house in the ground only outside the city, on a private plot, but this is exactly what is required – privacy and a garden over the roof. If there is no desire to deeply deepen the house, you can equip the upper floor in the form of an open terrace. A type of dugout is a cat’s house, or a version of a closed gazebo deepened into the ground.
For the sake of fairness, I have to say that the construction of a cozy earthen house is not so cheap – good waterproofing is needed for the enclosing structures (polymer, or foam glass, liquid rubber and the like, simple bituminization in damp soils is not enough). For walls – machine sprayed concrete. The same applies to dug-out garages. But what a saving in land area and opportunities for creative landscape design!
Recyclable houses are amazing – tires, glass and plastic bottles, in the full sense of the word from household waste. Astringent – cement mortar, filling bottles – sand, soil.
Old tires are used as load-bearing prefabricated monolithic structures with filling, as well as in the form of an exclusive facade design. Such a cladding will become a reliable barrier not only against rainfall, but also against noise, besides, the rubber of cargo tires is not afraid of either heat or frost.
Log houses are not that uncommon, they are old proven technology that has experienced a rapid revival over the past decade. The beauty and natural aesthetics of the clay-wooden buildings have provided them with a place of honor in the countryside. A woodpile residential building is a very real project. On the technology of building a house made of wood and clay: Clay pen
Assembling and bandaging elements of a clay-wooden house is used in options that rival the types of brickwork in terms of thoughtful design. Wood and clay are similar in terms of the quality of the fence and the return of moisture, in addition, the clay clip is the best protection for plastic wood. Experiments with a binder composition: mixing cement and lime into clay, replacing clay mortar with cement-sand mortar, including polymer components. A lot of modifications and terms for “churkobeton” have been invented today in addition to those already existing – is this not proof of interest in the ancient cord-wood technology?
The glass house is a fashion trend and housewife’s horror: a huge number of glass planes imply frequent calls to cleaning services. But the feeling of closeness to nature is complete and absolute. Modern double-glazed windows perfectly save heat, and the strength of the triplex exceeds many analogues of the enclosing structures.
Houses made of sandbags and earth, houses made of salt bricks and logs and all similar block forms still limit spatial imagination, require a special approach to ensuring the stability of the building – an armored belt, a built-in frame, connections.
On the other hand, today it is possible to build a residential building of any shape from LSTK and finish it in the most fashionable style – subject to precise technology, the availability of equipment for metal cutting and alignment at every stage of assembly. And, of course, a good design that takes into account effective thermal protection. published by econet.ru
