Houses made of laminated veneer lumber Holz House USA

Making the foundation of the house is one of the most important stages of the complex of works

The complex of works on the production of the foundation is one of the most important and technologically complex stages, which does not allow the slightest errors and technological violations. After conducting geological surveys and studying the requirements for engineering communications.

Our specialists will be able to offer you various options for foundations. For the vast majority of projects, we strongly recommend using a monolithic slab.

Monolithic plate

Monolithic slab-a rigid structure that distributes the load of the walls of the house and counteracts the deforming forces of the freezing ground. The plate has a large support area and provides stability of a heavy house even on soils with low load-bearing capacity. It is filled in one step, which guarantees the integrity of its structure.

When installing this type of foundation, a trench is dug 15.75 in(400 mm) deep and 11.81 in(300 mm) wide under the entire grillage belt. After that, holes are drilled for piles with a diameter of 11.81 in(300 mm) below the freezing depth in accordance with the climatic zone and the developed foundation project. Next, 7.87 in(200 mm) sand is added, followed by ramming along the length of the trench and to the bottom of the pile holes. Then a pipe with a diameter of 11.81 in(300 mm) is placed in the hole, which serves as a formwork, as well as for additional protection of the concrete from the influence of an aggressive environment.

The next step of the work is to install a pre-prepared spatial reinforcement frame of the pile into the pipes. Simultaneously with the installation of the grillage formwork, its spaced reinforcement frame is mounted and then filled with certified concrete of the M300 brand with mandatory vibration of the mixture. Filling is done at a time. If it is impossible to drive the automatic mixers directly to the filling site, concrete pumps with a boom length of up to 196 ft(60 m) and with the possibility of its additional extension are used to solve this problem.

In the process, the Assembly is power frame, mounting basement and floor decks device rafter system, roofing, installation of Windows and doors.

Other designs

The level of comfort at home largely depends on the work of the engineering systems embedded in it. The design of internal engineering networks is carried out in the process of designing the architectural part of the house, this is due to the increased complexity of the construction of houses made of glued beams.

Our specialists take into account all the aspects that make up the concept of "high-comfort house", including heat supply, electricity and lightning protection, water supply and sewerage, telecommunications networks, ventilation systems, video surveillance, integrated automation systems, Smart House.

Roof

The construction of the roof of a house made of glued beams begins with the installation of scaffolding and the installation of a truss system. Truss legs can be made of dry edged boards and glued structural beams in the case of complex roofs, large spans and heavy roofing, such as natural tiles. If the type of roof is quite simple, namely single-pitched or double-pitched, then the rafters are mounted on a system of sliding supports and hinges in a ridge joint.

On multi-pitched roofs with endowments and ridges, the rigid fastening of the truss system is mainly used. The next step of the work is the installation of a vapor barrier inside the warm contour of the building along the lower edge of the rafters, and then the rough hemming with a crate of dry edged board 0.98 in(25 mm) to maintain the insulation laid on top.

The next step of the work is to install a pre-prepared spatial reinforcement frame of the pile into the pipes. Simultaneously with the installation of the grillage formwork, its spaced reinforcement frame is mounted and then filled with certified concrete of the M300 brand with mandatory vibration of the mixture. Filling is done at a time. If it is impossible to drive the automatic mixers directly to the filling site, concrete pumps with a boom length of up to 60 m and with the possibility of its additional extension are used to solve this problem.

The main types of roofing

Soft roof

Metal roof tiles

After the counter-crate, a discharged 0.98 in(25 mm) dry board crate is mounted in the transverse direction, then a solid OSB flooring is laid.

After the counter-crate, a discharged crate of 2 x 2 in(50×50 mm) dry bar is mounted in the transverse direction, with a step depending on the profile of the tile sheet.

Roof

The windows are made of coniferous and deciduous wood. Due to the natural microstructure, the tree creates a comfortable microclimate, supports air exchange, fills the house with a pleasant aroma and does not cause allergies. Their production (deforestation) and operation do not harm the environment.

Environmental friendliness

Glued laminated log has a high limit of biological resistance. And this is even without additional treatment with flame retardants and antiseptics. Chamber drying compacts the wood, the internal resins are distributed throughout the volume. Wear and tear, rot, fungus, insect exposure-all of it is nothing.

Safety

The technology of production and working with materials preserves the natural pattern of wood. The water-based coating system allows you to emphasize the natural structure of the wood, which is why the windows look attractive and without additional finishing. To emphasize the beauty of the tree — all that is required.

Aesthetics

Well-thought-out profile configuration, strengthening impregnation, chamber drying of glued beams.

Strength

The natural natural material creates a warm and comfortable atmosphere in the house. The ability of wood to take different shapes gives you a wide choice: round and oval, trapezoidal and diamond — shaped-we will make any window shape for you.

Wood-the beauty of functionality

Strong wooden frames perfectly tolerate high humidity and temperature changes. Double-glazed windows provide an optimal climate and eco-friendly conditions in the room. We produce strong and well-established structures with fittings that will pleasantly surprise you with the price-quality ratio.

Double-glazed windows-practical and reliable

We produce windows with hidden mechanisms and mounting parts that open smoothly, adjust comfortably and are protected from break-ins. We use accessories that allow you to create windows that open in the desired plane, optimized for ventilation or designed for specialized rooms.

Hardware — a hidden part of an excellent product
