Project of a house AS A GIFT, upon conclusion of a construction contract
I can imagine how much work you have done since you have reached the point of connecting communications. But most importantly, you have already decided to build your own house and this is a great achievement with which I congratulate you. In this article I’ll tell you about everything in order: the types, cost of services and prices for connecting communications, and most importantly, whom to turn to in order to avoid headaches and common mistakes.
It may immediately seem that the main labor-intensive process and expenses after pouring the foundation, building walls and building the roof are already far behind, however, everyone who is at the construction stage or has already completed it perfectly understands that by spending money and nerves, connecting communications under the key to a private house or industrial building is in no way inferior to the construction of the house itself.
So, I want to immediately note that you are lucky if you purchased a plot in an area where there is an active partnership of homeowners, since often the communications issues have already been resolved and it will only be enough to pay a fee to settle all things. If you are less fortunate and you most likely bought a site without regard to the need for communications, you will have to act alone. It is even possible that the question of connecting electrics or a tie-in to the gas pipeline will not be available at all for any money - in this case, the output is only in stand-alone power.
Water connection is usually the simplest type of communication in terms of connection, because if there is a central water supply it can be issued in a fairly short time. The cost of connecting water is individually for everyone. What should be done? The first thing you need to get permission from the local administration, if the water supply is provided in the village of course. I want to immediately note that when it comes to villages, then in the summertime you may experience some inconvenience due to a weak pressure of water or even be left without it, therefore, the best solution would be to drill a personal well in the area to supply housing with water around the clock.
The price of water connection in this case directly depends on how deep the groundwater lies on your land and other small nuances, such as the price of equipment (pump, filter), equipment of an autonomous drainage system.
How far from the plot are the poles of electric networks? You probably thought that connecting the electricity would be as simple as two or two, but ... You will be surprised when you are offered to connect to the nearest transformer directly with all the consequent cash costs. It's all about the allocated capacities for each of the facilities. What do we have to do:
1 determine where the electric power comes from for the area
2 request specifications and power calculation
3 buy capacity at a tariff rate
4 buy or create a project
5 mount and connect.
Turnkey gasification of a house opens up a lot of opportunities for us, from heating a house, cooking, having hot water 24/7, and much more, all the more relatively cheap. Having access to gas in the house is rational and cost-effective. At the same time, crashing into the highway is quite an expensive pleasure, even though gas can pass along the border in the vicinity of your site. The connection procedure can be divided into several stages, the first of which is to obtain special permissions to tie into the trunk. The next step is to agree on all technical conditions and get a gasification plan. The final step will be the installation of a gas supply system. In general, the procedure for connecting to the house can take about six months, and the cost of connecting gas to the house is always very individual and depends on how far from the land the gas pipeline and other small parts are.
The removal and disposal of used water and sewage is an important factor for a modern house. There are several types of sewage systems, the first of which has been used for a long time, is economical and easy to arrange - a drain pit. It looks like this: a pit with a base of brick or concrete and waterproof walls with pipes connected to it from where all the water from the house merges. The contents must be periodically disposed of through specialized services. The second option is a septic system. They are in great demand recently. This system looks like a series of buried airtight containers with crushed stone, sand and other things, particles of different sizes and densities are deposited in each of the containers. As a result of natural filtration, almost pure water comes out. The third type is a biological water treatment plant. In the reservoir, where sewage is fed, microorganisms are populated for their subsequent processing of waste water. It is believed that this method allows you to purify water by 98%, because it is widely used in all urban wastewater treatment plants.
In the climatic zone of Ukraine it is difficult to imagine a house without heating, which makes this type of communications no less important
