But if it is designed at a time when the house is already built, you can be puzzled by this work yourself. Accompanied by such work, as a rule, three phases:
- Creation of the base under a canopy for a country house.
- Creating walls.
- Finishing work.
Creation of the basement under a verandah for a country house. There are two options for the foundation for the construction of photos of the veranda in the country - this is a deep strip foundation and a foundation on the basis of pillars. In the first case, the foundation is calculated on a stronger structure, when as building materials they use timber, brick, stone.
On the basis of such capital construction, closed verandas are more often constructed, often even heated. In the second case, the foundation continues with an uncomplicated frame made of wood, plastic. This is considered to be an easier way to build, more suitable for open sheds and those that resemble patios. The choice of the foundation is directly curled by what summer terrace, covered or open, the owner of the country house prefers.
Creating the walls of the veranda. This is the most important stage in its construction, which requires maximum concentration and responsibility. Most often, metal or aluminum is used as the basis for the walls. In the future, this basis is sheathed with drywall, brick, stone, wooden slats, plywood, plastic or clapboard.

Further, if the house has small children, then you should think about fences. This will ensure their safety and reliability of their stay there.
Also, if you need a shady place, you need to think about planting plants near the building. During construction, it is also important to consider the material from which the garden house itself is built. Subject to this rule, all buildings on the site will acquire single stylistic look.
