How to mount siding on a wooden house

Vinyl panels – this is the main material for finishing wooden houses. And it is quite justified – facing with vinyl siding has a number of advantages over other materials.

  1. light
  2. lasting
  3. plastic
  4. service life more than 50 years
  5. no additional processing required
  6. does not rot and is not subject to corrosion
  7. possible laying on any surface

Installing siding on a wooden house has its own characteristics. And the first thing you need to think about is the shrinkage of the wooden house. You should not do facing in the first year after construction, otherwise the probability of its deformation is great.

Before facing a wooden house, it is necessary to cover it with special compounds that will provide fire-resistant and antifungal protection. When choosing a material, it should be remembered that the metal does not keep heat, and cold facing next to a warm tree can cause condensation in the cold season. (more…)

What to lay on the wooden floor

Next, glue is applied to the floor using a notched trowel, a material is applied to it, which is carefully smoothed to prevent the formation of wrinkles and bubbles. It is better to use a roller and work them linoleum in the longitudinal and transverse directions.

When laying several sheets of flooring they should overlap. Excess glue is removed, and the junction is pressed down with a load until the adhesive material is completely dry.

Laying linoleum on a wooden floor is not particularly difficult. The combination of these materials will provide adequate comfort in the room and retain heat. The main thing is to make the preparatory work and the subsequent laying of linoleum.

Also, after laying the flooring, you need to know: how to care for linoleum.

Instructions for the assembly of a frame house with their own hands

  Instructions for the assembly of a frame house with their own hands

Installation of the roof of a frame house is a very important event. Rafters (pictured) of the roof can be done both before and after wall cladding. I did the first trim, but often do the rafters before the trim (especially the Finns, who on the roof very quickly put the farm from the factory)

I delegated this stage, I could not master it myself, very heavy boards for rafters, you have to drag it to the very top and do everything very precisely.

Frame-shield house with their own hands. Wall cladding

Before sheathe the walls, you need to check their slope vertically. It is better to sew up the walls completely, and then cut the openings in the casing, so tight.

Usually the walls are sheathed with OSB, but I do not like this stove, it does not let off steam. It is better then to use the MVDP Beltermo or inch (as in my photo). (more…)

Masonry clay blocks with their own hands

Any methods of laying building materials require compliance with all rules for the installation of blocks. But in principle, such installation work is feasible even for inexperienced workers. The laying with claydite concrete practically does not differ from the installation of brick walls.

Masonry clay blocks

Masonry of lightweight aggregate blocks occupies a large segment in the types of wall fencing of buildings and structures. The low cost of the material significantly reduces the cost of construction. The voids inside the blocks improve the insulating properties of the walls and reduce the weight of fences. The walls are often erected with facing bricks. Due to the low bearing capacity, claydite walls are used in the construction of low-rise buildings. (more…)

Installing a lag for the floor

Lags can be stacked both on an earthen base, and on wooden or reinforced concrete floors of buildings.

  Installing a lag for the floor

Lags are carefully dried wooden bars serving as the basis for a clean floor covering.

If the overlappings are wooden, then most often their beams do not differ with excellent flatness, and when laying the lag directly on them it is very difficult to achieve a flat horizontal surface. In this case, the logs should be attached to the sides of the beams.

The main advantage of this method is that it is not necessary to use linings to adjust the height of the lag. Fastening is performed using incomplete screws, while their length should be no less than 2.5 times longer than the width of the log, and the diameter not less than 6 mm.

Tip: in order to avoid splitting wood, it is recommended to drill a hole 2.5 mm in diameter less than the diameter of the screw in the log and the beam before fastening. (more…)
