Re: Mini Cottage

What a sweet little place! Congratulazioni AdeleAlli! Soon in real?



If only I'd have the money to realize it! But maybe in the future in the mountains of my birth city I will be able to make it real :).

When I wrote " I am working" maybe I was misunderstood :).

Thank you for the comment :).

Re: Mini Cottage

But you can also look at a smaller fireplace. We had a modern one installed a couple years ago, < 70 cm wide and builds only 40 cm from the wall (chimney) - and it still delivers 5kW - more than enough for your nice little house. ok


Here is the result using a smaller fireplace:



And here is the bedroom upstairs:



I received a suggestion to try to invert the stairs because maybe the space was smaller when someone goes up, considering the slope of the roof and so the result:

First floor



Second floor



Thank you all for the suggestions!

Re: Mini Cottage

Very nice. I think the smaller fireplace looks good and does not take away the charm of your construction.

A staircase going up to a loft can be quite a challenge in any small house. You do not want your head to hit the loft ceiling, and at the same time, you do not want the staircase to block the middle of the room. If local building authorities permit, you could also consider a smaller, steeper staircase that will save a lot of room both downstairs and upstairs. Not everyone will agree (my family), but I quite like the compact staricases. Maybe because I grew up with them, but I also think they 'open' the house and bring the two floors 'closer'.

Steep staircase, but also:
Staircase type Samba
Hatch / ladder type staircase

Re: Mini Cottage

I personally like spiral staircases. In my opinion they are the best compromise to use as less space as possible and to have a most comfortable staircase.

Hi, thank you for the suggestion.

I tried to use a spiral staircase. The result is that there is more space now, but I have two problems:

- how to close the space left by the staircase at the second floor (I used 50 cm walls to do it, but I don't like it very much);

- the staircases with handrails that are present in sh3d were too big, and the only one I was able to use is that without handrails, but in a real solution I think that I'll prefer to use handrails.

Here are some renderings:

Ground floor with the fireplace and the staircase



Ground floor with the kitchen corner and the staircase



First floor with the 50cm walls closing the staircase, and the living room area with a desk and a pc (it is a must for me even in a cottage :D )



A view of the ground floor plan to see how much space the staircases occupy now





I know that it is not the right place to ask it, but does someone know how to use staircase models downloaded from other sites? I tried to do that but the staircases that are not sh3d models already present does not leave the space upstairs, so it requires more effort to use them, but in this case I found smaller models that in my opinion where more appropriate for the design of this cottage.

Thanks

Re: Mini Cottage

I usually place the spiral staircases next to a wall. this wall partially replaces the handrail.
I love open constructions and therefore staircases without railing or handrail. but in real I would of course also install a bit more security, but not 50cm stone walls, but 25mm wood walls.

In the third importation pane, you have to choose "Door or window" option.

??? I would choose "Staircase" ("Scala")...

I think you are right. This is what I obtained following your suggestion:



P.S. Thank you both for telling me how to import staircases in the right way :).
