House of foam - a warm, lightweight and yet surprisingly sturdy.Foam concrete - a modern material that successfully replaced the brick and concrete slabs.Working with him is so simple that it can perform the same person.However, before you build a house out of foam, it is necessary to learn some of the intricacies that are associated with the construction.Most of the nuances due to the specific material.
slab foundation house
Under the foam will not need a heavy-duty base, because the house will turn light.
best option here - a continuous slab foundation, but if you want to master and can deliver solid belt.
device slab foundation
Setting outer casing work is performed in the following order.
- We must remove the top layer of the soil, making a small pit.
- surface must be leveled and put on her frame of boards.
- Anyone who is familiar with such foundations, it is known that the frame is divided into a kind of "sandbox".So, here you can determine in advance the place bearing walls.
- The "sandbox" should pour the sand, pour water and tamp it carefully so that it becomes solid.If the sand is no longer tracks when walking on it, the job is done right.
- Next rammed space necessary to cover the film, which is attached to the sides.
- next step - installing the outer casing.It should be done on a level.
- In those places where the planned load-bearing walls (the spaces between sand squares), you need to install the valve.
- were double reinforcing the foundation.First fit the bottom mesh reinforcement, and then the top.
- next stage - concreting.Once the concrete is poured, it must be just a little bit to align.
first row of foam blocks
foundation is ready, it's time to start building basement.It was he who laid the bottom row of foam blocks.
- Use waterproof mixture At work it is necessary to first install the concrete blocks at the corners.To determine which is the construction of the house, you can see a variety of free house designs of foam.
- first row of blocks is laid on the waterproofing mixture.Before packing material should be wet.
- remaining blocks are mounted on an adhesive that is designed specifically for foam.
- Foam is good because it can be easily cut and give it a different shape.If desired, even the master can produce blocks of various shapes and cut them as it sees fit.
House of aerated concrete with their hands to build easily.However, if you work alone, it is only for the resettlement of the basement may take about two weeks.
After the lower basement level is finished, set on top of a reinforced concrete belt.Valves with the welded on the spot, because it is very heavy.
Work on the construction of houses made of aerated concrete
Once installed concrete belt, it is necessary to start with windows and doors.Here, everything is much easier, because the main, the hardest part was in the beginning.Learn the intricacies of working with foam concrete is simple, the principles are very simple.
foam concrete roof on the structure established in the same way as any other building.
Outside house warming
Despite the fact that the foam - a very warm material, insulation is still required.It is desirable to hold it and the inside and outside of the house.One only internal insulation may cause wetting of the walls.After the blocks are still cold, and this will lead to condensation.What and how warm the house of foam on the outside?
One of the best materials - polystyrene.You can set the old-fashioned method.
- First you have to make on the surface of the foam blocks of wood crate.For it is not broke, you should treat the wood by special trains.
- crate stacked on polystyrene.
- Above all covered with a decorative layer.This may be any material taste host.The easiest option finish - plaster.
The main problem that may face the owner of the house with this warming, that it is necessary to know exactly under what brand of foam fits this kind of work.
Warming houses of foam
Another form of foam insulation from the house based on the method of "sandwich".Its essence is that the surface layers of the wall mounted slotted brick and polystyrene foam.This design creates a perfect protection from the cold.And if you install additional thermal insulator still inside the house, the owners have no frosts are not terrible.
internal insulation is carried out just like any other home insulation.From the materials you can use plasterboard, mineral wool and other eco-friendly thermal insulation.First, on the surface of the set or crate, or steel brackets (profiles).Then they attached the material, and the top is installed decorative protection.
Often in such cases, and apply plasterboard and expanded polystyrene.With this structure can not only protect from cold, but also from the noise.In the case of houses made of foam should not be afraid that the steel profiles, without the reinforced crates become cold bridges.In the absence of external insulation likely to worry about damp or condensation.
itself foam provides excellent protection from the cold.Its high thermal conductivity is already appreciated by many owners of private houses from different countries.The only problem that really must be fought - is the moisture.
