There is no shortage of building materials in the Russian market. Along with them, construction companies offer prefabricated buildings for suburban areas. Wooden buildings occupy a separate niche - especially among them are bath projects made from logs. Works are performed by professional teams, thanks to which customers receive high-quality results and a long-term guarantee.
In many families, there is a useful and pleasant tradition - bath day
Traditionally, Russian baths were built from a log house: a tree in Russia was the most accessible material, and man has known about its healing properties since time immemorial.
A semi-antique design
Wooden log baths are still the most popular among buildings of this kind, thanks to their beneficial effects. body and soul microclimate. In addition, they have many more advantages:
Cost-effective. It is much cheaper to buy a log bath than to build it out of brick or foam concrete.
Low thermal conductivity of wood, due to which heat is kept for a long time in a bathhouse from a log.
Good noise isolation.
Service life up to 50 years.
A wide variety of bath projects from a turnkey log.
The projects of the baths of the log house are popular, so every year you can find more and more of their variations.
In conditions of high humidity, wood becomes vulnerable to microorganisms, so it is covered with antiseptics during harvesting, again - after installation
Among the shortcomings they note a high risk of fire, a long process of shrinkage of the log house, cracking of the logs during shrinkage, as well as susceptibility to rotting wood. But at the same time, the work done by professionals has no such shortcomings, since the buildings are erected in accordance with the prescribed technologies, treated with flame retardant impregnation and compounds against fungus and mold. And, not least, experienced craftsmen know how to choose a breed and a high-quality log. With this approach, as practice has shown, baths from a log house can be used for several decades.
The first thing that interests anyone wanting to build a bath from a log is projects and prices. The choice should be based on the needs and desires of the owner in the construction of additional rooms, as well as in the complexity of the design. The construction of the log-house bath itself is carried out in several stages:
Foundation construction. Projects of large-sized wooden baths imply concrete concrete, depending on the soil, pile foundation can be erected. For ventilation around the perimeter of the foundation make vents.
Construction of a bath on a strip foundation

Laying the first crown. The wood is pretreated with antiseptics, and the foundation is covered with roofing material or hydroglass insulation for waterproofing.
Walling. The crown behind the crown stacks the logs to the required height. Then the building should stand and dry. After that you can proceed to the next stage. Often, the insulation during construction is moss, an example of the construction of such a bath from the log in the photo.
Natural moss, safe for health and not prone to rotting under the influence of moisture and elevated temperatures, is often used as an interwoven insulation. Among its few shortcomings: it attracts birds that pull it out of the cracks for its nests
Installation of the roof. For a small bath, you can choose a shed roof. It will be cheaper and easier to build. More spacious and more complex structures installed gable roof.
The layout of the furnace. It is built so that it does not touch the walls. Kiln brick is considered to be the best material for it, because of its thermal properties, it is much more efficient than others.

Insulation floor, wall and ceiling. The gaps are caulked with flax, tow, building moss and treated with sealant.
Installation of doors and windows. In the finished log house openings are cut into which door and window frames are installed.
Interior trim. For it edged boards, lining are used.
Traditional design of the Russian bath
For reference! During operation, after It is recommended to ventilate a bath, as usual ventilation will not be enough in any case. To do this, the room is heated and open the doors and windows.
The first thing that makes a start from building a bath from a log is projects, a photo of a sample. But this is not the last thing, but it is worth adding such an important point as choosing a place. The choice of location for construction depends on a number of factors:
Construction Standards (SNiP), which take into account the underground utilities, the distances between buildings, proximity to neighboring areas.
You should not ignore the rules of the building code, even the owners. If the site is burdened, repairs may be necessary. The reason for the neighbors to appeal to the court may also be the incorrect location of the building
of the terrain. Factors such as the proximity of a reservoir are taken into account — too close to it a bath is not recommended: the shortest distance is 5 m.
The proximity of other buildings. Bath is considered an object of increased fire safety, so it should be built at a distance of 8 m from other structures.
Zoning area. Bathing facilities, many prefer to place in the recreation area - a pleasant cozy corner.
For the construction of a log house-bath (projects and prices can be found on our website) the requirements will be more complex, since the construction of residential buildings is regulated by additional legislation.

Most often coniferous trees are chosen as building materials for the bath. They produce resins that create fragrance and a special indoor climate. Coniferous wood is not susceptible to cracking when temperature drops.
For reference! Pine and spruce are considered one of the cheapest wood building materials. However, it is better to use dense species grown in the northern regions: they absorb less moisture than southern trees.

On our website you can familiarize yourself with the most popular wooden bath projects from construction companies represented at the exhibition houses "Low-rise Country".
Often, erecting wooden baths from a log, use deciduous species: aspen, oak, linden, birch. The aroma they emit has a beneficial effect on human health and his emotional state.
The availability of wood for building a house or a bath depends not only on the type of wood, but also on the season. So the winter forest (the one that is harvested in winter) is considered the most suitable, since at this time the humidity level is the lowest.
For reference! The recommended log diameter is at least 20-25 cm. Thinner badly retain heat.
A wide variety of wooden bath projects is offered on the modern construction market, the choice of structure depends on several factors:
Bath size. The minimum recommended dimensions are 3.5 * 3.5 m. Typical sizes are, as a rule, 6 * 6 or 6 * 4 m, as well as 5 * 5 and 5 * 7 m.
