Projects of brick houses with an attic

A house with an attic is a common type of ownership on land plots. Building an attic floor is easier and cheaper than usual. An additional plus is that the attic allows you to experiment with different interior designs.


The peculiarities of houses with an attic are that one of the living quarters is set up under a roof in the attic. For better convenience, the roof is made of a broken or sloping shape. The design assumes that the top is flat and the bottom is steep. Thanks to these features, heat losses are significantly reduced. In addition, the beautiful roof attracts attention. The attic saves space and allows you to implement bold design ideas.

In fact, the attic automatically turns into the main architectural area in the house. Usually bedrooms, children's rooms or sports rooms are set up on this floor. Windows play an important role in the arrangement of this room. For brick buildings, plastic products are often chosen, since they are more economical. If finances are available, the use of wooden structures is also allowed. They also have a number of advantages. Another option for attic windows is French frameless structures that provide maximum light flow and a beautiful view.

If you approach the choice of options with all responsibility, a brick house with an attic will turn not only into your property, but also into a real decoration of the village. Before choosing and creating a structure from scratch, carefully assess the capabilities of your site. After determining the parameters of the soil, take on the search for a suitable project. There are many options for layouts of attic structures. Pay particular attention to the attic brick buildings.

Brick structures are optimal due to their excellent properties. Brick has a solid reputation among other building materials. An important feature of a modern building is the equipment with a mansard lift at the design stage. Another important point that should be taken into account during construction is carrying out finishing and insulation works of the roof simultaneously with the repair of other premises. Opportunities for internal work are limited only by finances.

Generalized features of brick buildings are:

  • maximum strength and reliability;
  • a variety of sizes and colors;
  • versatility and the ability to combine;
  • good protection from external noise;
  • optimal, comfortable and cozy microclimate inside.

Building materials

Before choosing a material for construction, you should designate the functionality of the future structure.

There are several options:

  • Country building for summer recreation. It is not worth erecting capital structures for him. A certain number of bedrooms, a gazebo and a spacious living room are enough.
  • Country house for year-round recreation. For this case, capital projects of brick attic houses are suitable. In this case, it is enough to take care of the insulation of the floors and the facade.
  • House for permanent residence. It requires careful insulation and all communications. A basement and a garage will come in handy.

Projects of brick houses with an attic are very popular, since the original appearance of the building material remains for many years. But for this to be true, it is important that the brickwork is done correctly.

The advantages of brown bricks over wooden structures are in the following material properties:

  • resistance to bad weather;
  • hygroscopicity;
  • withstanding many cycles of freezing, thawing;
  • incombustibility;
  • creating a soundproofing effect.

Compression resistance is correlated with the type of product: corpulent, hollow. It is allowed to build structures with different geometric shapes from bricks. The exterior of the building can be changed by using multi-colored bricks. For example, it is convenient to combine variations from yellow to red. Cladding of brickwork can be made of tiles, porcelain stoneware, finishing stone, plaster and other materials.

Brick houses are more environmentally friendly, since no chemical components are used in the production of building materials. The environment is not damaged, as is the case, for example, with wooden structures, when timber is consumed in the harvesting of commercial timber. Variations in the combination of materials may depend on the ways of using the structure: for summer vacations, year-round recreation and permanent residence.

Considering brick projects with an attic, it is necessary to take into account the number of people living. The need for a guest house and the importance of a built-in garage should also be considered. There may be no need for a basement room, as well as numerous utility rooms. Let's take a closer look at some of the variations.


At the design stage, it is important to choose the design of the staircase. The construction in the future will have a significant impact on the entire image of housing.

There are several traditional options for finding steps in a room:

  • Location along the load-bearing wall. At the same time, several upper and several lower degrees are rotated 90 degrees.
  • Rounded single-flight lift design with normal and winder steps for greater comfort.
  • Ascent with zigzag steps at the inner wall. This ingenious design will require a little more space to accommodate.

The generalized rules for designing a house with an attic suggest that the intersection of the roof and the facade should be at least one and a half meters from the base of the attic. In addition, design implies accurate calculations of the dimensions of furniture installed in the attic.

For example, consider a project of a brick attic cottage of 213 sq. m. Dimensions of the building 13.50 * 15.50, building area 178 sq. m. The ground floor area of ​​137 sq m can include an entrance hall - 3.19 m2, a living room - 19.70 m2, rooms - 20.21 and 15.68 m2 and two bathrooms - 9.11 and 11.2 sq. m. The hall can have an area of ​​24.89. and the kitchen area is 24.30 square meters. The area of ​​the boiler room and the terrace will be 3.48 and 4.46 sq. m respectively. The attic floor assumes a bedroom of 17, 89 m2, a hall - 28.12 m2, a wardrobe - 3, 26 and a bathroom with an area of ​​6.69 sq. m. The project implies such important features as strip foundations, brick walls and reinforced concrete floors. The roof of the project is gable, covering material - tiles.

If you don't need a large house, consider the project of a 10x12 attic brick house. Occupied areas: ground floor - 80 m2 and attic floor - 75 m2. The nuances of the project imply that, in terms of the plan, the house remains one-story. The roof of the structure is gable 45 degrees. An important architectural feature is the bay window, which gives freedom to planning inside. The attic floor is decorated from the outside with a balcony "a la France".

The attic floor windows are glazed door structures. Clinker tiles act as thermal insulation for the facade. There is a basement floor, where it is allowed to place a fitness, a workshop, and other elements of the arrangement for leisure. The ground floor plan includes an entrance hall 2.0, a pantry 19.7, a kitchen 8.6, a dining room, a veranda, a living room - 42.5, a bathroom - 4.2 and a boiler room - 7.9 square meters. The attic floor includes a bathroom of 8.6 m2 and several rooms from 9 to 15 sq. m. The extremely economical version of the project implies the presence of a living area equal to 56 sq. m.

Building 10 * 10.The layout of the first floor of such a house includes the following premises: a room - 10, a living room - 15, a dining room combined with a kitchen - 11, an entrance hall - 3.9, a bathroom - 3.3 and a dressing room - 2.6 square meters. The attic floor includes a bedroom - 15, a dressing room - 4.3, a living room - 5.0 and another room - 15.7 square meters.

As you can see, even the most economical version of a house with an attic assumes a sufficient number of rooms for a family of four to five people.

In addition to advantages, brick, as a building material, has some disadvantages:

  • The high cost of brick buildings. The costs pay off over time. Since other building materials do not show themselves also qualitatively for a long period of time.
  • A brick house requires a solid foundation. This factor affects the cost of preparatory work. Brick houses are more expensive to design than similar timber structures.
  • The properties of bricks are such that they actively absorb moisture. Therefore, in a brick house, it is important to maintain the same temperature in all rooms. In an attic brick house, this can be done, perhaps with central heating.

An important point in the design of a brick attic house is special attention to the terrain. The version of the foundation used will depend on the soil on the site. In case of weak soils and an abundance of moisture, it is better to choose the pile-screw foundation method. Sometimes the terrain conditions do not allow the construction of a two-story structure. In this version, the construction of a one-story house with an attic floor is the only way out of this situation.

In a brick attic house, there are optimal and comfortable living conditions for all family members. In addition, in the attic version, funds are significantly saved for the construction of the second floor, in comparison with a capital two-story structure.

Beautiful examples

If we consider beautiful examples in more detail, then it is advisable to start by studying the stairs for the attic floor.

  • An elegant staircase, built along the load-bearing wall, with a 90-degree turn of the steps.
  • The design of a single-flight staircase is allowed to be rounded. so it will be more convenient to climb to the floor, and it will take very little space.
  • An interesting version of the staircase with zigzag steps.
  • A beautiful, spacious enough capital cottage with a full-fledged balcony.
  • Building with an original roof. This is the broken roof. The whole structure looks very attractive due to this design.
  • Small mansion with a terrace and two French balconies. An attractive detail of the project is the roof of a complex shape, as well as the finishing of the attic floor and part of the building with yellow bricks. The roof provides maximum functionality to the attic floor.

          As you can see, a brick attic house is a multifaceted structure that can be implemented according to a variety of ideas. Everyone will choose a project according to their own taste and in accordance with their financial capabilities.
