Construction of houses from wood and clay
• Construction of houses from wood and clay
To build out five times less clay than wood (need about 20%). Clay is the basis for a solution that makes the conventional wooden wall is very strong.
To the clay does not crack and has been warmer, it must be mixed with chopped straw (need about 10-15% of the volume of clay).
foundation design is simple enough for her to be a conventional tape rubble foundation. For best results you need to fill in the stone layers a liquid solution, which will be able to fill all the voids.
The depth of the foundation should be no more than a meter, as a wood wall brick weighs much less and also highly resistant to soil subsidence.
The best length of 40-50 centimeters, because it is enough that the house was warm enough even in the harsh winter.
Technology laying wood walls does not require complex calculations - however necessary accuracy. To wall was warmer, it is possible to use one a little secret.
The clay does not need to lay a continuous layer, and two parallel "the beds".
It provides the necessary air space, which will not allow the seams freeze.
When laying angles need to apply the technique of bandage wood series, as in the conventional masonry.
This is the house 9x9 meter and a half floors, composed of logs 40 cm. Of clay.
Spread the wall at a time you need three rows of firewood. It is no longer necessary - the clay does not have time to dry out and the upper ranks of the logs from the lower squeeze.
There is no need to bash boards (formwork, or something of the Tisza technology). There movable panels of the three boards to the entire length of the wall and the inside and outside.
For windows and doors used a box on the wall width (200x100 board).
In the finished home as looks like this:
