Take the construction of the foundation for additional living space.In depth, it must match the existing ones.In order to save you can create the foundation of various building materials, for example from old reinforcement, concrete blocks or rocks.
Pour foundation solution by combining three pieces of cement with one part sand.Before filling, take care of a foundation in the air vents, or at home may appear mold.To do this, you should put across the formwork asbestos-cement pipes.
Build cellar.To do this, pull back one meter from the inside of the foundation, dig a hole about two meters deep, and overlaid it with bricks.Make the entrance to the cellar through the hatch.
Connect the new foundation butt with the old.Level the surface of the basement with a liquid solution by mi
xing equal proportions of sand and cement.Generate laying of roofing material for waterproofing and proceed to build the walls of foam concrete and timber.Arrange them in the middle.Your foundation should have tabs on the inner and outer sides, for which you need to put sex lags.
Connect logs and timber vertically, putting the wall old construction timber having dimensions of 15x15 cm and sew it with long nails.It should arrive two vertical slats 5x5 cm to the middle of the groove was formed.Make washed down on a bar under a new wall and insert it into the slot.
To connect the wall and foam concrete Planking, first put the blocks are not close to the beam.Here, you should have a gap of about 2 cm, which you then fill with the help of foam.
Make sure that the walls of the old and new buildings came to an end at the same height.It will help to sustain the level of the water.If there are differences in the height of the walls, align them.
Dismantle the roof remodel homes, increase its height, lift and a new slate covering it with corrugated metal.Observe the meter-wide canopy roof over the wall, making a ledge and free flow.
Tip 2: How to make a warm farmhouse
There are several ways of warming farmhouse.For the top and bottom slabs can be used bulk material having low thermal conductivity.For walls need foam or mineral wool.
- - expanded clay
- - mineral wool or polystyrene
- - tow
- - foam
- - silicone sealant
insulated house can be both bottom-up and vice versa.That is, you can start either from the floor or from the ceiling.Walls, windows and doorways are engaged after be insulated top and bottom slab.
ceiling insulation works to be performed on the part of the attic.If the beams are opened and filed only from below, to check the integrity of the ceiling boards and their ability to withstand considerable weight load.If the floor of the attic does not bend under your feet, do not squeak and it may be safely walk, so it will not hurt dumping or laying insulation.
For this purpose, you can use expanded clay, dry river sand, sawdust (mixed with lime "fluff" in the ratio of 10/1), metallurgical slag, glass, and any modifications to it (mineral wool, rock wool, basaltfiber, etc.), foam sheet.Insulation or fall asleep in the gaps between the boards, or lay them.In the case of foam it is recommended to fill the gaps between the joists and assembly foam.The bulk material shall be laid in a layer of 15-20 cm.
Warming of the floor - a laborious process.There will need to open the floorboards and hemming "rough sex" if it does not exist.For this to logs with their bottom side at a distance of 40-50 cm fasten the board (for insulation foam) or completely sewn up their space between the logs (if using glass wool).In homes where a short distance from the ground to the lower floors, you can do any of the above dumping of bulk materials.
to seal cracks in the walls, you can use dry grass, hemp, wool or mounting foam.If to the beam or beams, of which the house is built, you can not get close, you need to remove the trim (siding, steel sheet, boards).
then the walls must be mounted crate, consisting of uprights, spaced by a distance slightly less than the width of the insulation used.It should be laid in the gaps between the pillars crates so that there remained gaps.With regard to the thickness of the insulation layer can be guided by the average: for regions with warm climates of 5-10 cm is sufficient for the northern - 20-25 cm.
cracks in window frames and doorways can be repaired with the help ofputties.For the wide and deep gap is desirable to use assembly foam.If the window frames adjacent to the loose, they can be strengthened through transparent silicone sealant.At the time of purchase should pay attention to the fact that it is water repellent and has been frost.
