Projects of houses in the style of the chalet got their name from the French chalet - "shepherd's hut". This name originates from the name of the buildings erected in the mountains of Switzerland and the southeast of France. Shepherds were sheltering from the weather. For today's houses, such a project characterizes the ecological character of the building.

Planning of a site with such a house
Buildings made in this style, perfectly retain heat and, despite the unpretentious appearance, are very reliable and durable.
