Building a loghouse

For a family from the United Kingdom I manage the build of their dream house in a
village near Sibiu, Romania. I help them face the bureaucracy that comes with buying land and building a house. Together with the architect, engineers and constructors, we make sure their dream log house will be build.

From idea to plan

After the block was acquired, we had to make an Urban Zonal Plan (PUZ) and a Local Urbanism Regulation (RLU) to ensure the area was designated for building houses. A local architect made an opportunity study, we discussed with neighbors and obtained the notices from several authorities. We have a geotechnical study and all the topographical works required.

The family pictured their dream house, included a wish list and found a company specialized in building log houses. The wishes were translated in a plan, which, together with the architectural and engineering plans, became the "blueprint" for the build of the house.

With the architectural plans we obtained building authorisation. And we used these plans to choose the constructor for the concrete part of the house, and the plumbers and electricians.

During the bureaucracy phase we had to change architect and engineers, so we encountered a delay. In the mean time the wooden structure was built at the constructor's site and remained there over the winter period.

From plan to realisation

In 2017 we built the road, bridge and fence. Also the general digging was done.

In May 2018 we started the build of the concrete part of the house. In September the wooden structure arrived on the family's block and the house was rebuilt in it's final place. After the roof is put on the house, the structure will be left for another year for the settling process.

In 2019 we will start finishing the house, putting in windows, doors, bathrooms, floors etc. The family plan to move into their dream house in 2020.
