If the main disadvantage of wooden houses is that the material requires special storage and transportation conditions (because of its susceptibility to environmental conditions), and subject to certain restrictions in the construction process, the lack of brick or stone houses is inFirst of all, the high cost and bricks and masonry.Also, because of the large weight of the building it is necessary to lay a solid foundation, which again increases the value of the house.

During the construction of the stone house in the countryside is hard not to disturb the natural landscape as the need to use heavy construction equipment.


To save developers find different ways.Saving begin from the very first responsible step - geodetic and design and estimate work, determining the state of the soil.Limited only by the draft design and surface surveying services, the future owners of the house trying to eliminate possible flaws by ensuring the construction of experienced construction workers who could build

a house, relying on a minimum of knowledge.More often than not hire those who built the adjacent objects and seemingly must know the ground conditions in the area.

But the error in this case is that of the neighboring houses can be on different grounds where a clay soil, sand somewhere, somewhere the water table is near the surface.If the house will be on clay, heaving soils, bearing capacity of the foundation is not long enough, the foundation can be further "squeeze" and the house "float."Most of all when it will be damaged outbuildings - garage, summer kitchen, veranda.When thawing and freezing of the soil at a minimum on their walls any cracks in the worst case, they simply break away from home.

Save the right choice to help the foundation.The most economical - pier foundation (with a high groundwater level it is required).And if you need a basement, better to choose a strip foundation, which is also economical.

because of the desire to save appears, and this is a common mistake, as the use of "guest workers" - unskilled workers.Such employees often do not know even the simplest rules of masonry.For example, when laying in the heat of the clay brick sure to moisten with water.You can throw a pan at once, but two hours later you need to repeat the procedure in order to keep the wet bricks.It is best to moisten each brick separately before putting it in the solution.If you put "dry running" brick absorbs water from the solution and crystallization it will not happen.The wall may collapse as the solution seized.

If you still work "guest workers", be sure to hire an experienced master and ask him that he should not be absent from the facility and trained workers along the way, carefully monitor compliance technology works.Cheaper construction can use sand-lime brick.This material is not necessary in hot weather is wet.But he also has a disadvantage: in the sand-lime brick plaster keeps worse than clay;without finishing the brick loses its appeal and the house eventually becomes dirty gray.

Starting walls, pay special attention to the implementation of plastering.Required to comply strictly with plastering technology, and the time for application layers.Otherwise the plaster will crumble even a year later.

very common mistake due to the desire to reduce costs - the use of substandard bricks, slabs.Of course, one can try to correct the defects of an increase in amount of the solution or by other contrivances, but the result is unlikely to house will have straight walls and the ceiling, the strength is also not best.

Generally speaking, nearly any error can be corrected, but it will require extra time and new expenses.So once again think about how not to become so stingy that pays twice.
