Work­ing in the city and liv­ing in the coun­try­side has long be­come a sign of pros­per­ity abroad. More and more Be­laru­sians start to fol­low this trend. More­over, this trend has been sup­ported by sev­eral gov­ern­ment pro­grams, in­clud­ing the pro­gram for ready-made turnkey homes. The goal of the gov­ern­ment hous­ing con­struc­tion pro­gram is to en­sure that one-fam­ily houses make up 40% of the to­tal new con­struc­tion. To­day there is a great choice of turnkey home projects on the mar­ket. Still some prob­lems in­hibit the growth of sub­ur­ban con­struc­tion.

Mass Pro­duced Homes

Many know the ex­pres­sion “one-sto­ried Amer­ica”. A house in the sub­urbs with a yard for BBQ is the dream of ev­ery Amer­i­can. And it is a reach­able dream. More than 17 mil­lion new homes are built in the United States an­nu­ally, more than half of them are low-rise houses de­signed for one or two fam­i­lies. About 65% of Amer­i­cans live in such houses. As a rule, they are built in sub­ur­ban ar­eas of large cities, in small and medium-sized towns, and in the coun­try­side.

In ad­di­tion to sub­si­dies and af­ford­able loans, the de­vel­op­ment of “one-sto­ried Amer­ica” was spurred by new tech­nolo­gies that en­abled faster and cheaper con­struc­tion. Af­ter the Sec­ond World War, the State of New York launched mass con­struc­tion of stan­dard wooden houses. The sub­ur­ban vil­lages of cot­tages and town­houses started to spring up ev­ery­where. Amer­ica trans­formed into a coun­try with mostly sub­ur­ban pop­u­la­tion tak­ing ad­van­tages of work­ing in the city and liv­ing out of town.
