PLOT SEARCH TO BUILD A SMARTLIVING HOUSE
When searching for PLOT to build a Smartliving house, you must take into account the parameters of WIDTH, DEPTH, SLOPE and ORIENTATION.
If we usually have 3 meters of separation of the limits with the neighbors, we have the following relation of DIMENSIONS OF PLOTS (always according to city-planning regulations of the corresponding municipality):
For NARROW houses (SLA models) we will need plots >12 meters wide. For NARROW houses with movement between the pieces (SLB models) we will need plots >13.2 meters to 16.8 meters wide. For LARGE houses with 2 side pieces (SLU and MAXI models) we will need plots >18 meters wide.
For NARROW houses (SLA and SLB models) we will need plots >18 meters deep. For LARGE houses (SLU and MAXI models) we will need plots >12 meters deep.
SLOPE OF THE PLOT
Keep in mind that a flat, horizontal platform is needed to place a house.
For sloping plots, it is necessary to make earthworks to create the horizontal platform, and if the slope is higher than 10% it will most likely be necessary to build earth retaining walls (reinforced concrete walls or rock walls).
Depending on the orientation of the site, the house will be placed leaving the maximum amount of garden in the SOUTH area of the site, orienting the day area of the house to the SOUTH.
