Recently, there has been a tendency to build environmentally friendly housing. The mass of advantages of half-timbered technology is of interest to all numbers of people.
Fachwerk– a method of wood construction, in which the frame is formed by a system of horizontal and vertical elements of a wooden bar with filling the gaps with stone, brick, and other materials.
In half-timbered houses, walls can be removed and installed where necessary, because they are only enclosing elements and do not carry loads.
Half-timbered buildingsstand for 500-700 years. Most of the early half-timbered buildings that have survived to this day were built in the 15th century. This is a technology that has proven its reliability over time..
The use of modern insulation allows you to survive the cold winter, while in summer the tiled roof provides coolness, making the house suitable for living in it at any time of the year.
Half-timbered house, built of environmentally friendly materials that are not harmful to human health, moreover, it is fire resistant. During construction, not a simple tree is used, but a wooden glued beam, which burns much less often.
The wood from which the supporting elements are made is thoroughly dried. It is coated with a protective composition, which includes natural oils, which ensures that the house is hardly flammable, it is resistant to precipitation, bright sunlight and protection from wood insects.
Unlike other frame technologies that use metal fasteners, a half-timbered structure uses precise methods of joining parts like a thorn on a thorn – a secret thorn, cuts, etc. This ensures the strength, stability and durability of the structure. The construction of such houses is economically beneficial. The first half-timbered houses required renovation every 40-50 years, but now, thanks to wall materials, it will be required in 80-100 years.
The lightness of the half-timbered structure is due to a decrease in the load on the ground, which ensures the use of more economical types of foundations, and therefore, a reduction in construction time. It takes no more than six months.
Half-timbered housenot only reliable, but also beautiful. The load-bearing timber frame is not hidden by the finish, which creates an atmosphere of unity with nature. In such houses, panoramic glazing is often used, so natural light prevails in the house, which has a beneficial effect on a person’s vision and mood. In country houses, when using panoramic glazing, a magnificent view of the garden or of the mountains and forest opens up. In addition, the glass used is at least 6 mm thick and will only break when hit with a heavy object. Modern technologies allow you to darken windows at the request of the customer.
Fachwerkis not only a constructive, but also a decorative element of the building, it dismembers the facade into panels of various shapes and colors, which gives the building a unique look and original style. Depending on the design of the facade, the house can fit into the surrounding landscape or, on the contrary, stand out against the background of the terrain and other houses. In any case, such a house with its bright personality attracts attention and testifies to the delicate taste of the owners, causing the envy of others..
