The project of a wooden house from profiled timber:
Profiled timber is a material that requires a special approach when developing a project of a wooden house. You should take into account a lot of aspects to calculate the operational capabilities of many elements. Of course, one cannot do without the participation of experts, who have years of experience in the field.
Many construction companies, including us, offer already existing standard projects free of charge, if the construction of the house will be ordered from them. These projects have approximate price for materials and works on the building site.
The kit of the house should be designed according to a lot of things, such as ground motions, dimensions of bars and so on.
We produce profiled timber with a cross-section of 100x150mm to 220x240mm. The most convenient and popular is cross-section 200x150mm.
Fastening of sawn timber during the construction process
Carrying out the construction of wooden house from profiled timber, one can often hear recommendation concerning fastening of beams with metal nails. But one should know that metal is not always acceptable. This is connected with the fact that it is able to condense moisture on its surface due to temperature differences. Moisture in its turn contributes to wood rotting, and also causes corrosion of metal. That is why wooden nagels are the only acceptable option of fastening of beams.
Thermal insulation and processing of houses made from profiled timber
About 6-12 months after assembling, when the house is completely settled, it should be inspected for cracks, gaps between the beams. All of this is exposed to insulation. One should use the same type of insulation as during the construction of the house. You should use only mineral wool here. Septic tanks, as well as various coatings are used to protect the house from wood fretters and rotting.
The cost of the house from profiled timber
Even at the stage of design works, you can calculate the approximate cost of the house from timber.
You need to add together the following costs:
-the cost of timber needed for the construction;
-the cost of transport services;
-the cost of assembling works.
It should be noted that the price of timber is one of the most affordable for house construction. At the same time, you can always save money. For example, if you order a standard house design before the construction.
