One of the types of frame construction that can be easily recognized by its characteristic signs is half-timbered houses. These are harmonious, combining wood, stone and glass structures, with a visible frame. A special technology has been used since the Middle Ages, now the construction of a half-timbered house in Moscow and the Moscow Region is the creation of popular and affordable housing.
Unlike traditional frame houses, in the fachwerk technology, any materials are used to fill the wall space between the frame - adobe, brick, moisture-resistant boards, and even glass. As a result, houses have significant advantages:
Given the ability to combine various materials when forming walls, it is possible to achieve a small weight at home, and significant savings on the foundation.
The process of building a house, as in the construction of any other buildings, begins with design. At this stage, you need to choose the option you like from the catalog of finished projects or order the creation of an individual one. Half-timbered houses have a certain construction technology, so only an experienced designer can correctly calculate and arrange frame joints.
Creating a project is a complex responsible work that begins with studying the characteristics of the soil on the site and ends with the creation of drawings, so the service is not cheap. But, ordering a turnkey house in our company, you do not have to pay for an expensive project, because everything is already included.
Having a finished house project, construction work on the site begins with the formation of the foundation. Under the half-timbered technology house there is no need to fill in a reinforced foundation, a tape shallow or in-depth is quite enough. The exception is projects when walls are built from heavy materials.
Not only the weight of the building affects the choice of foundation, but also the composition of the soil, the level of groundwater and many other factors that are taken into account at the design stage.
A prerequisite for the construction of half-timbered houses is a completely wooden frame, accordingly, huge requirements are imposed on it:
The result is a light but very durable frame. In addition to the supporting function, here it is also a decorative element, therefore it is important to carry out all fastenings on invisible areas.
The construction of houses allows the use of gable or single-pitch roofing options. Basically choose a gable roof made of metal or soft roof.
Fachwerk houses tend to have wide overhangs that protect the house from excessive abundance of sunlight and rain.
Various materials are used to fill the gaps between the beams of the frame, but preference is given to slab - cement-bonded particle boards on the outside and sheets of drywall or gypsum fiber inside. Panoramic double-glazed windows as wall material are very popular.
Wall cladding on the outside can be done with any materials, depending on the style and design project, for example, plaster or imitation of timber.
Despite the open frame and large glass areas, utilities are easily arranged in the cavity of the floor or walls. It remains to complete the finishing work, arrange the interior and landscaping.
Quite naturally, the customer’s desire to save during the construction process. But there are stages at which it is not only impractical, but also dangerous. Basic work such as creating a project, laying the foundation, erecting a frame, and in half-timbered houses it is a supporting element, it is better to entrust it to professionals.
