Building toilet and hostblock: together or separately?

What is a household block and how it differs from a residential structure It is

known that the state authorities of architectural supervision sufficiently seriously control the implementation of building codes, which relate to any buildings, even on private landholdings. According to the SniPAMs operating on the territory of the Russian Federation, the main criterion on which construction can be considered auxiliary is its construction according to building codes lower than those, $ which are stipulated in GOST 27751-88 “Reliability of building structures and bases” for residential buildings.

The indirect reason to consider construction a household block is also the presence on this land of the main residential building, in relation to which this building performs maintenance or auxiliary function. I.e., a houseblock is a freestanding building designed for any purpose other than permanent residence.

According to the current norms, outbuildings must be placed from residential buildings no closer than 7 m.

As for the size and functional purpose of the economic block, some restrictions are not provided in the law. The only thing that can be said about this is in accordance with the changes adopted for SNIPs 30-02-97, regulating the procedure for development, coordination, approval and composition of design and planning documentation for the development of the territories of horticultural associations, grouping of outbuildings is recognized as the most expedient. Thus, the association of the hostblock and the toilet is not prohibited by building codes and regulations.

Advantages of grouping the hostblock with toilet

Benefit of joint placement of the hostblock and toilet is especially obvious when centralized communications on the site are absent and their must be carried out independently. And such horticultural and summer plots are most.

Many companies specialize in the construction of finished housing units and offer a variety of options, including shower, toilet, veranda and large room, which always has an application in the farm.

Even when the area of the plot is large enough, it still makes sense to group this utility building with those that have a sanitary purpose: showers and toilets. In this way, you will solve several questions at once. If you use the houseblock as a summer kitchen or workshop, you can immediately install a sink in it and think through one common drain of wastewater, allowing to comply with the norms established by SNiPami — install multi-chamber septic tank or one biological cleaning station. In addition, you will be able to save space on the site, as well as funds — in fact, you will have to build one structure, not several.
