As a material for creating a handrail, you can use the boards left over from the construction of the main structure. Boards must first be planed, sanded and treated with antiseptic. Measure the distance between the vertical posts and cut off the railing 2 cm longer than the obtained distance. In the posts at a height of 90-100 cm, make cuts 1 cm deep and the width equal to the width of the railing. Insert the board in the cuts, and fasten the bottom with a long screw.

Departing from the floor 10 cm on the pole to make similar cuts and also insert a board into them. Between the obtained horizontal parallel boards, we arrange the planed boards crosswise and fasten them with screws to the posts. (more…)

Rafters set at a distance of 50 cm to 1 meter. On top of the rafters lay waterproofing material, nail the counter rail, and then equip the crate. Roofing material is laid on the crate. Training video on the installation of various kinds of roofing can be easily found on the Internet.

The horizontal lintel (bolt) gives the structure rigidity and reduces the load on the spacer, which is transmitted to the walls. The attachment of truss legs in the upper part is enhanced by a wooden or metal plate lining.

The lower part of the rafters can rest on the mauerlat with the cut-off end – in this case, the truss system is performed without overhang. If the project provides for the construction of a roof with an overhang of rafter legs, a recess is cut in the lower part of the rafter so that the rafter of the horizontal part of the cutout rests on the power plate.

The construction of the roof of the house can be done without laying the wall cover on long walls. In this case, beams are mounted across the long walls, and the length of the beams exceeds the width of the building. (more…)
