House Models: 102 Inspirations for Designing Your House

Owning a home is a dream of many people and building or renovating a new property is hard work. Therefore, the first step in preparing a project of this type is to choose among the existing models of houses, which will be done by you. The owner or owner of the property must choose the style that the house will have, what will be the material used, how many floors the house will have, among other fundamental details for the house to be designed.

It is important to emphasize that all this must be done with the help of qualified professionals, such as architects and engineers, who will ensure that the dream house is built in the best possible way, with professionalism and safety.

One-story house with vertical glass windows and front garden.

There is also the structural masonry, where the walls themselves are used as beams. It is the most suitable model for simpler or large-scale projects. To make renovations at home with this model, it is necessary to be more careful, so as not to damage the structure.

This is a model house that has a steel frame, which may be visible, giving a different style to the property. In it, the closures and internal walls are generally made of masonry.

It is a model widely used in large houses and commercial buildings. Its construction is quick, but its labor is expensive and very specialized. Ideal for people who like more modern and industrial architecture.

There is also a similar house model, called Steel Frame (steel frame, in free translation into Portuguese). In this model, the house has a galvanized metal structure and closures with OSB boards, plaster ceiling, board, cement or compressed wood. Its construction is quick, but just like the traditional metal model, its construction requires extremely qualified labor.

You will also be able to choose the number of floors that your house will have, according to your need, space for construction or renovation and the available budget. Let’s talk about it now!
