Than to warm a log house outside

The plates of “Penoplex”, due to their high strength, can be laid both vertically and horizontally. The structure of their surface allows you to apply plaster.

Insulation “Penoplex” is a material having a uniform structure, which consists of small, closed cells (size 0.1-0.2 mm).

The main properties of PENOPLEX plates are:

  • low thermal conductivity
  • low vapor permeability
  • lack of water absorption
  • high compressive strength
  • resistance to burning and biodegradation
  • ecological purity
  • easy and convenient installation
  • durability

When using penoplex plates, you should be aware that this material, like other types of extruded polystyrene foam, has a low chemical resistance to such substances as:

  • Aldehydes (formaldehyde, formalin)
  • Aromatic hydrocarbons (benzene, toluene, xylene)
  • Ketones (acetone, methyl ethyl ketone)
  • Esters (diethyl ether), you can not use solvents with ethyl acetate, methyl acetate,
  • Gasoline, kerosene, diesel fuel
  • Polyester resins (hardeners of epoxy resins and coal tar should not be used),
  • Oil paints.


Lag overlap of the second floor

We give a description of the main types of floors for the second floor of the house:

  • Floors na beams. In this design, the flooring is mounted directly on the logs that hold the floor. Supporting structures (beams) are the foundation of the floor, its strength elements. Work is performed at the construction stage of the entire building The shape of the timber can be different – rectangular, round, square. The blanks for the beams are sold untreated and require pre-finishing before laying on a regular place, which increases the installation time. The power elements of coarse wood have advantages over lags – they are cheaper and more resistant to stress. But the construction has poor sound insulation, because profiles are laid in the frame part of the building.
  • Floors on logs. Lags are necessary for obtaining high-quality flooring in sexual constructions. (more…)

    The timber is fastened with a section of 100×100 mm on the crown strictly along the perimeter of the structure. On the middle beam strapping is not performed. After mounting the bottom trim, a 50 mm step should appear along the entire inner edge of the base.

    Setting lag on the floor

    For a log, a 50×100 mm bar is needed; they are mounted with its edge downwards, onto 3 longitudinal beams of the crown, and inserted into the cuts with a size of 30 mm in the bottom trim. Step taken 60 cm.

    The arrangement of the subfloor

    An optional step that extends the life of the dog house and slightly warms it. The gaps between the pillars around the perimeter overlap with heavy permeable material (debris, for example), and the floor itself is covered with clay with clay from sand to lag.

    Installation of vertical corner racks of timber 100×100 mm

    Before further final fixing, the racks are leveled with the help of level and temporary bilateral rail braces. (more…)

    Frame walls in a wooden house

    Preparation for laying a strapping beam consists in arranging waterproofing of the upper part of the foundation. One of the following materials is well suited for this purpose: roofing material, bituminous mastic, etc. Well, then in order:

    • trimming bar treated with antiseptic;
    • we perform wood joints vpoldereva and fix them with brackets and nails 120 mm;
    • to reinforce the design, the corner mates are fixed with metal corners;
    • we fasten the frame of the frame house to the foundation by means of an anchor bolt with a nut tightening.

    Bottom trim boards

    Top trim

    After installing the vertical racks of the external walls of the house, it is the turn of the arrangement of interfloor overlap. And this work should begin with the installation of the top trim. As a material for it, you can use a double board with a lining of insulation or solid timber. (more…)

    How to install the glass in a wooden house

    The finished window is installed, either ideally aligning it with the front edge, or slightly penetrating it inside the house. Fix the frame to the previously fixed structure with screws, pre-drilled holes for them. In a wooden house (not from a bar) you can insert double-glazed windows with all the details. It is not only about the accuracy of the layout and the choice of quality material for the casing, but also the correct selection of fasteners for fixing the window. It is not recommended to use self-tapping screws, which are longer than 12 cm. Such fasteners will easily pass through the okosyachku and violate the integrity of the log building, which according to the “building” rules is unacceptable.

    External seam waterproofing can be performed in various ways: by vapor-permeable or self-expanding sealing tape, with a single-component acrylic sealant. (more…)
