Living in a house could be very comfortable. You have your privacy and peace and certainly it’s the best solution for family with kids. But sometimes it could be very expensive especially if you live in cold area. I’m sure that in that case winter must be your worst enemy.
Raising pre-fabricated house is a major undertaking and, if you have not dealt with this kind of work before, you can throw a lot of resources in vain. Although if you read this text, you will find a way to save a large sum of money that can be used on some better things. For example you found the ideal plot but you are not able to afford it because of its size, which is often the case with this kind of plot. No problem. This can be solved by including in a market plot a person of faith, family member or a good buddy with whom you can share this land because unlikely to own plots decide to sell it in parts. For good neighborly relations, it is important that the person with whom you share land not difficult to live with. When you choose material for the construction of prefabricated houses, do not try to spare. Because what is cheaper at the time of purchase, it is always much more expensive over time due maintenance. More expensive materials tend to not require almost any maintenance for years, and after a certain time along it pays off. Collect useful materials from the land on which it carried out the demolition of building such as used bricks, tiles and used boards which could give an interesting look (old-fashioned style or something similar) of prefabricated house without enormous costs. At the huge majority of cases, these materials can be taken almost for free, if you are willing to take them to your plot. It is necessarily to arrange it with your landlord before you take this step.
To reduce your costs in advance you should certainly put thermal insulation on your house. The insulation if it is insufficient, leading to increased heat loss in winter, cold edge constructions, damages incurred by condensation (moisture), and the space can overheat in the summer. The consequences of the structural damage and uncomfortable and unhealthy housing and work are various. Heating such area requires more energy, which leads to increased cost of use and maintenance of the premises, but also to increasing pollution. By improving the thermal insulation performance of a building it is possible to achieve a reduction of total heat loss of the building for an average of 40-80%.
Good knowledge of the thermal properties of building materials is one of the most important for designing energy efficient buildings. Heat losses through the building element depend on the composition of the material, orientation and thermal conductivity. Better thermal insulation is achieved by using materials of low thermal conductivity, and high heat resistance. The thermal resistance of the material increases with respect to the material thickness.
