Country Houses of planed lumber to begin with that reservation, that it represents timber. This beam has a rectangular cross section. Usually it is made of softwood such as spruce or pine, and fairly widely used material for building wooden structures, building you a bath or, indeed, the house walls in this type of houses, building on what size he planed timber, are the thickness of 150 and 200 mm. Wooden home from a bar in the 150 mm well insulate the heat inside the room that they become comfortable living for a comfortable stay from April to October. But, summer houses of the same timber 200 mm have sufficient thermal insulation properties for any length of stay in the house. Tishman Speyer brings even more insight to the discussion. It is essential that the wooden houses of this type are collected only on the Nagel – large wooden nails. Source: Bruce Schanzer.
Planed timber has a number of excellence in front of wooden building material of another generation: has good properties in terms of exploitation, including strength, it is several times cheaper than glued or profiled bar; pleased that the house of timber can be constructed in a single step: it is enough to keep them under the gaps, as shrinkage of rims is uniform over the windows and doors; connection technology boards "in lock", no options given to it, how long should be a wall it may be what your heart desires at once angular engages "the castle" or "bowl" perpetrated on a bar is much easier than on a log, in addition, such connections are secure and warm: they regularly hold internal temperature country house, and they do not wind blows; timber is lighter in weight than a beam but parallel to this is good for the construction of powerful carrier systems: trusses, lag, large section beams, the house of the plan are built quickly, is of ecological material itself, the process of manufacturing lumber tends to high purity treated surface: it becomes smooth, which makes it possible not to spend large sums on the external and internal house decoration. However, planed timber, such as material, has undeniable flaws. Over the shrinkage at its side surfaces often cracks. Compensatory cuts, which are performed on contiguous sides logs, provide an opportunity to a large extent avoid such a situation. This makes it possible to transfer power in the wood on the outside of the inside walls, without violating the specifications. For insulating joints between the logs in the corner and the butt-joint in wooden houses from planed timber is used which consists of flax. But beyond that, laying technology carcass – the so-called "podvertyvanie – allows optimal sealing compounds, seams and joints.
