Storage without cellar

Investment - Living space

"A cellar belongs to a house!" - a sentence that has long since ceased to apply. Every third house builder in Austria decides against a cellar. Many builders also recommend a construction method without a cellar. The reason for this is most of all the enormously high costs for a "low quality" of the area. In sub-optimal soil conditions a cellar can cause up to 100% additional costs.

Instead of financing an expensive cellar part of the budget can be invested in the above-ground living space. The rest of the money is saved. This results in a better quality of life. Conventional cellars do not serve as living space anyway, only as storage space for junk. Also, the technology of a house does not necessarily have to be underground. A small room on the ground floor is enough to accommodate the heating technology, for example. On average, a family needs only 20m² of storage space, situational cellars are always significantly larger. This results in expensive unused space. Also, the well-being increases when you look through the window into the garden, instead of on grey cellar walls, while washing and ironing.

Advantages of houses at ground level

  • Immense cost savings due to floor plates
  • Barrier-free provision for the elderly, but also suitable for children
  • Higher quality of life through more living space
  • No complications with soil conditions
  • No accumulation of junk
  • More decluttering


Rental warehouse as an alternative

Of course, life without a cellar can intertemporally lead to a lack of space. You should bear in mind that not all things are needed in the house always. Skis, snowboards, swimming equipment and various decoration articles, for example, can be stored seasonally externally. Rental warehouses offer a solution to extend the limited storage space in the house as much as required.

Selfstorage means, renting small or large storage compartments externally. It should be noted that not all providers offer the same. Costs, handling, locations and conditions can vary greatly. Prices are often intransparent and in many cases lockable containers, on the outskirts of the city, sell themselves as selfstorage. However, nobody want to store expensive sports equipment or other personal valuables unheated, somewhere outside the residential area, do you?
