Garden houses — small and even smaller …
They are so different: small, small and … even smaller. We are talking about garden houses.
If the garden is located in your estate and it already has a residential building, then the garden house is assigned the role of a guest or a place for secluded relaxation.
Be that as it may, I want to make a garden house not only compact, but also cozy. I propose to consider several options for building a house in the garden. From simple to complex.
SEPARATE REST ROOM
In such a house there is hardly a place for a kitchen and a shower. Its content is subject to one idea — relaxation in the bosom of nature. There is a comfortable armchair (bed, sofa), a blanket, pillows, several shelves for books and magazines. However, someone prefers reading music, drinking tea or watching movies.
By the way, such a garden house can be used as a study overlooking the garden.
A great option for workaholics or freelancers. Of course, this option assumes the presence of a full-fledged residential building nearby.
In such a house, even if it is small, there will definitely be a place for a stove or a slow cooker. And behind the partition you can place a shower room. This temporary accommodation will serve well as a guest house.
An unusual example of a «well-forgotten old» is a house underground. Well, not quite underground … But a great option for a natural garden. Construction material — concrete, rubble, brick, other masonry material with a density above M800 (so as not to «pull» moisture from the ground onto itself).
The advantage of this design of a garden house is that the earth and the turf layer on top of the roof, smoothly flowing into the walls, serve as an excellent insulation and air conditioner at the same time. It goes without saying that the soil from the masonry should be waterproofed.
There are few windows in such a house and from the inside it looks more like a cozy hole.
MODERN APPROACH TO DESIGN
Instead of wood, stone or brick — a large panoramic window. It can be deaf or with a door. Modern manufacturers offer swing doors, sliding doors that fold like an accordion or slider doors.
It is better to green the roof to create a comfortable microclimate inside the house.

Two-level interior or we settle in a mezzanine
Residential The mezzanine is a burning topic for me, because in my house I decided to abandon the floors and the attic in favor of the “big shelf”. The room (alas, while the construction is still not an interior) immediately acquired volume, a lot of ideas appeared on how to use the space under …
Covering for the yard
yard — my favorite place. Most of the summer season takes place here. it «hallway», «living room» and «kitchen» of the site. And in a secluded corner there is also a «bathroom» hidden. How all this will be equipped — each owner decides for himself. But the most important element is…
Perhaps I will disappoint you, the reader, but there is simply no universal formula for choosing colors for the interior. And all because the perception of the same wall shade is completely different for interiors of various volumes and degrees of illumination …
Summer shower — tropical shower at your command
Water procedures are the most pleasant activity on a hot sunny day. Life-giving coolness spreads throughout the body, bringing him liberation from summer dust and the burden of worldly worries. Any relaxing procedure begins with a bath.
