clay soil on the site, the groundwater flow at different levels.To reduce the cost of the foundation, at the request of his father, SSDV 6 pits dug to a depth of 1 meter and a width of 0,6h0,6 meters.At the bottom of the pits made the expansion of up to a meter in case the upper layers of soil heaving during freezing will pull the top of the foundation, in this case, the base will be expanded to resist.Above ground pillars rise to a height of 0.5 meters, and the size of the pillars 0,3h0,6 meters.All markup conducted with the help of ropes and gidrourovnya.Despite such simple tools, everything turned out smoothly.

SSDV have been concerns about the

This roof design was not chosen randomly.He wanted to achieve the maximum usable area of ​​the second floor.More advantages of the roof is that the room is not heated due to the space between the inner walls and roof.Moreover, this space can be used as additional recess.Under the eaves, he plans to make the lighting.

During construction, he used a circular saw Hitachi and just an ordinary handsaw.

roof he covered with his father red metal tile to the country after stopping work.More

such roof structure is convenient because it is well cleaned and her little accumulated snow.
