Which house is cheaper to build - wooden or foam blocks: an analysis of current proposals
Construction of a private house, cottage or a small garden house on its own land requires clear planning and constant monitoring. First of all, the owner is important to determine the material. Of course, I want the house to be not of the worst quality, and the price of the building was affordable. As an example, consider which house is cheaper to build - wooden or foam blocks.
Characteristics of the timber: how profitable will the construction
be For building a house It’s pretty hard to name one perfect construction material. A large variety of such materials, the presence of their individual characteristics, advantages and disadvantages can complicate the choice for the owner several times. Absolutely any project initially takes into account the geodetic, as well as the climatic characteristics of the land, and this in turn directly affects the choice of materials for implementation. Recently, especially popular materials for the construction of private and country houses are timber and foam block. This is explained, first of all, by the fact that both materials are relatively inexpensive, but at the same time have excellent performance characteristics.
A wooden house is not only visual beauty, but also ecology. The material for the house of wood can serve:
Profiled, glued or solid timber.
Profiled bar: advantages and disadvantages
The main characteristic of a profiled bar is exactly the specified size of the sides, the log is cut to the nearest millimeter. Thus, the output is obtained profile with strictly defined parameters. The use of profiled timber for building a house allows you to completely avoid any cracks, holes. Therefore, water will not get inside, which means that the rotting of the material is also excluded. The cost of this type of timber is quite high, but the expense is minimal. In addition, the main advantages include:
The building is very warm.
Ideally smooth, durable and smooth walls of profiled timber look incredibly beautiful and stylish, do not require additional decorative finish.
Tight connection between the crowns, which guarantees minimum ventilation.
No need for additional work in the process, as well as after shrinkage at home.
Considering the question of whether it is better - a house from a bar or foam blocks, it is important to study Not only the advantages, but also the disadvantages of the chosen material:
A quality profiled bar should be well dried in natural conditions, otherwise the tree will begin to warp and lose shape over time.
Drying is a bit more complicated due to its large size; in some enterprises the technology is disturbed, and therefore the building may be deformed.
As with any solid material, cracks may appear in the profiled bar during the shrinkage process.

Glued laminated timber: the pros and cons of
The basic material for the manufacture of glued laminated timber is pine, spruce or cedar. The technology consists in the fact that logs sawn on the boards are first dried well and then glued. The number of layers varies from 3 to 5, depending on the required thickness. After gluing, the timber itself is carefully cut. The output is a smooth, high-quality and fairly durable material. The advantages include:
Ideal material in a "fast" construction, as well as for the implementation of the most complex projects.
Not deformed over time.
Minimal shrinkage (up to 1%).
Does not rot.
