The composition of the construction kit of the house made of glued beams

The house made of glued beams includes a set of parts (constructor), ready for assembly on your site. The cutting of all joints in the lumber provided for in the project is carried out on CNC equipment, i.e. "Krusimatic G-1". (Switzerland), Krusi (Switzerland) and STROMAB Autoblox (Italy). Control files are created in the licensed software K3-Cottage (Russia) and CAD-program Cadwork (Switzerland).

The use of these software products allows you to produce parts of home kits with a high degree of readiness and accuracy. This guarantees tight connections, the use of additional finishing joints is not required and allows you to build a building as quickly and efficiently as possible.

FAQ

What kind of wood do you make a bar from?
We make glued beams from pine or spruce coniferous wood
species that grow in the taiga zone of the forests of Russia.
What is the optimal wall thickness required for a house?
We recommend glued beams with a minimum thickness of 8 in(202 mm). This wall thickness has the necessary indicators for thermal conductivity. The cost of heating in homes with such a thickness of log will be minimal. Go to our section on the selection of the cross-section of the beam.
Is it possible to make the outer walls 10 in(252 mm), and the inner walls thinner, for example 6 in(152 mm) or 8 in(202 mm)?
It is possible, but we recommend to make external and internal walls from a bar of the same section, for uniform shrinkage of the structure. The minimum allowable difference in the thickness of the beam, no more than 1.57 in(40 mm).
How many years can a house made of laminated veneer lumber stand?
For a house made of glued beams, if you follow the basic rules of operation, even 100 years are a normal service life.
What are the terms of construction of the house?
The approximate construction time of the house with a total area of 2150 sq ft, about four weeks.
What is included in the price of the "basic home kit"?
Power frame made of glued beams,
floor beams, truss system, mouldings.

It is possible, provided that a stable microclimate is created inside the room (a well-established temperature and humidity regime).
When should I paint the house?
The house must be painted immediately after assembly, if the temperature regime allows (the average daily temperature is not lower than 45 F).
