Temporary housing will allowno hurry to engage in construction

When selecting a location for the construction must take into account that the garden houses of economy class is not desirable to have in the lowlands, where water often accumulates after rain.It is best to choose the highest point on the site and thus avoid future moisture indoors.The optimum location for the house - a north or north-west side of the site.To place in the building does not obscure, and it's very important, it is better not to plan it near the border and back off three or four meters.
