Leaning houses are a good solution to save space when you have a garden or an open space, which should be continuously maintained with tools of any kind. In fact, they are used to store tools (which can range from simple gardening tools, such as brooms, shovels … but also motorized tools) in a sheltered and standing space. In this way, the leaning house it becomes the ideal place to store utensils that you always want to have at hand, but at the same time you want to keep them separate from the rest of the house. leaning house it can be built mainly in wood or metal, although there is no lack of plastic ones (less common). Those made of wood are generally much more elegant than those made of metal, as they are also more comfortable and better workable, as well as much more sensitive to the surrounding environment. In fact, in order to improve their aesthetic adaptation to the environment in which they will be positioned, it is common practice to paint the houses according to the color and style you want in such a way as to integrate them very well into the landscape contour of each garden (or any other open space). For this reason they can be built using the classic “do-it-yourself” technique, or they can be purchased ready-made: in both cases to strictly follow the construction legislation, as otherwise there could be a risk of illegalization. Alternatively to the first two options, it is possible to buy an assembly kit for a leaning house (there are various prices, based on the type of material and size). leaning houses to tell the truth, they do not recognize a wide diffusion, unlike other countries (such as America) which have recognized their usefulness over time, and where they are even built on two or more levels of height.

leaning house The common types of leaning houses are those that rest the rear part against a house wall, in such a way as to ensure better stability and faster anchoring, through suitable anchors (easily available on the market). In this way, a garden shed can be built to be used not only as a tool shed, but also as a storage room, wood storage and various tools. Of this type of houses there are many others and of various sizes, suitable for various purposes, such as houses specifically suitable for wood, or sheds for tools, or even the houses used in an original way for children.

In addition to the more classic leaning houses, the market nowadays offers panel-structured houses, easy to assemble and disassemble, which can be comfortably used during a camping or other similar events.

leaning houseWith regard to the current legislation on the construction of houses, while for the houses not anchored to the ground there is no regulatory obligation to be respected (if they have the character of temporaneity), the leaning-type houses are always anchored to the ground and for this reason reason require the consent of the Technical Office of their own Municipality. In each municipality there are specific and different rules to be respected, charges and limits, and for this reason the costs and characteristics of a small house can vary greatly depending on the municipality of reference.

For these reasons it is advisable to first apply for a Building Permit in order to obtain and publish the DIA (the Notification of Commencement of Activities) always through the Technical Office of the Municipality. It must be submitted at least 30 days before the start of the works, together with a project report which will be evaluated according to the safety regulations.

The first thing to do to build a leaning house naturally procure the materials on the basis of which we will build it. If we suppose we need to build a leaning house for tools, we will need: 6 square section poles, raw fir beads, 5 joists, nails, Canadian bituminous shingles, hammer, circular saw, level, plumb line, water impregnation and brushes for water products (the measurements of all these tools may vary according to your needs).

Once all the necessary tools have been gathered, and after having established what the house will be placed on, first of all, the poles will be fixed to the ground (if the concrete floor, expansion anchors will be used for fixing). The poles will then be connected to each other through two joists and two other joists will be used to form the frame of the roof and give a certain stability to the whole structure. Then the fir beads will be nailed, starting from the side ones at the bottom and starting from the wall on which the small house is placed. Once all the beads have been nailed, the sloping roof will be cut at an angle using the circular saw. Finally, the beads of the front part of the house and the remaining sides will be nailed, taking care to cut them where appropriate to leave space for the opening of the door which will be inserted with two jambs and relative architrave.
