Worst of all, if a country house is used as a dwelling only in the warm season. In this case, the plaster and wallpaper on the walls are covered with cracks much more actively than in the house in which they live throughout the year.
If you plan to get rid of cracks on the ceiling or just update the interior, it will be enough to do some cosmetic repairs. And it is done on the same principle as in a city apartment. It already depends on you: whether you will do it yourself or seek qualified help from a company engaged in the repair work of living quarters. However, in cosmetic repairs in a country house, you need to pay attention to some things.

If you decide to take the help of hired workers, and the house is far from the city, you need to solve the issue of living and feeding of workers during repairs.

During the preparation of the estimate for the repair of the house, do not forget to pay transport costs.

It is interesting that even with the purchase of materials in the market near the house, you still have to pay a decent amount for shipping.
When cosmetic repairs in a country house, special attention should be paid to the insulation of floors and walls. As practice shows, this work belongs to the category of uncomplicated ones. It can be done on its own. However, if you are not confident in your construction skills, it is better to hire workers with recommendations.
