Building a house for shrinkage from a turnkey profiled beam has long been separated into a separate service from construction companies, showing its practicality and efficiency. The popularity of such a decision is primarily due to the ability to clearly comply with the technology and the sequence of work and divide the costs into two parts - first the creation of the box at home, and after 6 - 12 months - finishing.
When ordering a house from turnkey timber, you need to consider that it will take some time during which there will be some changes in the size of the building. This is caused by the natural processes of drying wood and shrinkage. The main factors affecting this are:
Humidity of the profiled bar;
The time of year when wood harvesting was carried out;
What method of drying was used;
The season in which construction work was carried out;
The climatic conditions in a particular region;
The quality of work performed, including waterproofing of the roof, foundation, pavement.
If a profiled bar of natural humidity is used, the time for complete shrinkage takes 3 years on average. Therefore, more and more often, the choice is stopped on the house from a turnkey bar under shrinkage, from the material that has been subjected to chamber drying. In this case, its humidity will be much less - no more than 18%, and only 1 year will be required for shrinkage, and its value will not exceed 3 cm. It is important that such a blockhouse stand all seasons and adapt.
A log house under shrinkage has a number of advantages when compared with buildings made of other materials:
The speed of construction.
Drying of wood occurs naturally. This has a positive effect on the performance of the entire building.
The deformation of floors, walls, partitions occurs correctly, without the formation of gaps and without leaving the plane.
In the house, optimum temperature and humidity are created and maintained from a profiled bar.
Relatively low cost.
For a log house for shrinkage, the price may not be cheaper than during the turnkey construction, but it will have much less pressure on the family budget, since the construction of the house will be divided into two stages with the gap between them in a year and a half.
It is also important to pay attention to the fact that all elements of such a log house are manufactured in factory conditions. The construction of the house is carried out by highly qualified specialists, using professional equipment and tools. All this guarantees high quality of work and long service life at home.
On our site you can familiarize yourself with the most popular projects of houses made of profiled timber from construction companies presented at the exhibition "Low-Rise Country".
The construction of a log house from a profiled bar is assembled in just a few weeks. For this, a bar with a cross section of 200 * 200 or 150 * 150 (external walls), 100 * 100 (internal partitions and walls) is usually used; for floor blades, a bar with a cross section of 150 * 150 is used, with a pitch of 600-800 mm.
If a second floor is provided for in the project, then for interior walls, partitions, and lags, a profiled beam of the same section is used, and for a 40X100 board frame. Draft floor made of boards 20x100 or 25x100. Insulation - flax fiber or jute. Rough roof - ruberoid.
Basic configuration of a log house for shrinkage:
internal walls, partitions;
door and window openings;
draft roof (can be straight or broken);
power elements (lags);
draft ladder (if it is a project of a two-story house);
fasteners (wooden pins, nails).
Additionally, you can order the arrangement of the foundation under the frame of a profiled bar for shrinkage. Most often for such houses use a columnar, tape, pile-screw, tile or column-support foundation.
