Abstract
    This paper presents some aspects of the construction actions on human life and health in relation to construction sites and quality of materials used to make the accommodation.
    The research was conducted by consulting bibliographical references to the influence of materials and location of the housing conditions of environment, following at the same time housing developments in rural areas after 1990 compared to urban housing.
    Specifics of the traditional rural landscape conjugated with the interest in the landspaces and recreational opportunities the rural environment provide are the main reasons that attract tourists from urban areas.
    Globally there is a tendency towards green housing in relation to the materials and technologies used in the construction of buildings. Main components a of green building are environment and "healthy" building materials. They can negatively or positively influence the lives and health of people.
    Radon and thoron contribute to over 50 % of natural background radiation. It is therefore necessary to monitor radon levels in homes to ensure public health through the use of appropriate building materials and ventilation measures. Exceeding the maximum permissible effective dose to the population is 1 mSv per year above natural background radiation (2.4 mSv) should be avouded.

Key words: rural tourism, ecological houses, radon, concrete
