Building a house of aerated concrete

initial decision - to build a house of concrete blocks and brick plinth.Therefore, even in 2008, in the fall, it was bought Lipetsk blocks of 500 units.and red brick in the amount of 4 000 units.They were brought to the site and forgot about them until spring.

paulking the winter thinking about a plan to build the future of the house.He decided to do as the foundation slab.Next on the perimeter of the foundation has decided to fill the tape to level the ground and put the ground floor.


to dig the pit, he hired Tajiks.They first removed all the fertile soil and piled into a heap, and loam in the other.He dug a lot - 9 bunkers, and its export cost is not cheap.After Tajiks dug pit, they immediately disappeared.And they left the pit with a vertical drop in opposite corners of about 40 cm.

aulking I had to align the pit, and then he made a sand filling.On one had the Kamaz sand.Sand rammed improvised means.And then construction stopped due to financial problems.During this time, several times the
rain poured and compacted the sand itself.


First of all, he began to prepare a concrete slab foundation.As a guide, and he used the old reinforcement steel pipes ¾.He laid them on the bottom of the pit at a distance of 1 meter from each other and put on a level.The mixed cement-sand mortar and filled the pit to the level of the pipe.Before pouring the solution on the ground spread out the plastic wrap.Ties leveled wooden slats.

Having trained under the slab, he began installing formwork boards around the perimeter of the future foundation of the house.Again I spread a film.He did it so that concrete does not give away too quickly the moisture in the screed below it, and of course as a waterproofing.

Then it was time to put on the reinforcement of the foundation supports.I bought wire for tying reinforcement and shared her grinder into 3 equal parts.So, we get pieces of wire of the same length, and which have made binding across the valve.

formwork slab

formwork for pouring plate he built along the perimeter of the foundation.For it did retain backfill soil on the outside.

Pouring plate

To fill the basement with concrete mixers ordered.Close to the facility, he was not able to drive, even though that part of the fence was dismantled, so prepared in advance of the trough boards proved to be useful.

ordered to fill the concrete grade M-300, purchased at factory JBK Ivanteevka.It proved a good quality, and brought as much as ordered, no less.The foundation successfully filled, and a day later he grabbed.

due to poor monitoring of the quality of the filling, where she was taken ill, formwork moved from its place.Therefore it was not possible to make a perfectly flat foundation.

formwork for casting tapes

suburban areas elevation difference on opposite corners of 60 cm, so the plate with one hand was buried in the soil at 60 cm,the other at ground level.

paulking wanted to raise the portion of the foundation, which is under the ground, so it was decided to fill the tape around the perimeter.When filled tape, the foundation on the other hand rose above the ground.In order not to bare, we decided to pour the soil excavated during the digging of the pit and make backfill the foundation.

day after pouring slabs workers started the construction of the formwork for pouring the concrete strip.To do this, they have made an internal formwork on wooden L-shaped brackets.The internal formwork he decided to back blocks and miscalculated.After the start of filling the inner formwork "gone."I had to fill in, urgently nailed inner formwork to the slab reinforcement, pre-drill a hole puncher.

masonry walls

After the foundation scored a little toughness, work has started laying blocks.To do this, put the corner blocks, pulled by the level of the rope and began to lay the walls.

blocks put on a special adhesive for aerated concrete "win."The adhesive was applied to a special trowel.

parallel blocks started to masonry.Blocks and masonry are not linked to each other.

floor decks, he decided to make the wood.To bar does not sag, he decided in the middle of the first floor (base) do support.To this end, he put the bars and poured on top of the concrete beam.

Laying nets

During construction of the house took three paulking Laying nets:
  • The base;
  • By overlapping the first, ground floor;
  • under the ceiling of the second floor.
To fill Laying nets he put irremovable formwork.On the first (ground) floor of the outside formwork used as bricks and the inside block of 600h250h100, sawn lengthwise into three parts.

used as reinforcement bars 6 mm cross section and reinforcing mesh 4 mm thick.

Overlapping windows cap

to overlap windows was bought cross-section area of ​​65 mm.They stacked blocks and bricks.Blocks - inside and bricks - outside.2 is put on the corner of a brick.After the solution dries, gently knocked the outer corner.Corners, which are placed blocks remain in the masonry.

second floor

Having fill Laying nets, workers laid the beams overlap the first (ground) floor.To fill the gaps between the beams and the alignment of masonry blocks, he sawed into pieces of 17 cm and they filled all the spaces between the timbers.

Then workers started construction of the second floor of the blocks Hebel 600h400h250.On the ground floor has left the entire vacation.

thickness of the outer walls of the house - 40 cm. In terms of the house is a letter "G".The main part of the house is separated from the carrier extension wall thickness of 20 cm. Its reinforcement is produced for each row.

Covering window openings

Make overlapping window openings in several ways.You can buy this U-shaped blocks and make them irremovable formwork.You can buy a reinforced cellular concrete bridge.Their cost is three times higher for 1 cube / m than the price blocks.

A paulking made differently.He bought blocks 400 mm thick.And they come with transoms of thin (100, 200.150, or 300).He made a jumper from these blocks.

First of all, did the formwork for the installation.Then he built an unremovable shuttering of three rows of blocks:
  • placed outside the block thickness - 150 mm;
  • In the center half a block 150 mm thick, sawn along the middle;
  • inside the unit Dell 100 mm.

All this is reinforced in a 4 bar and poured concrete.

Formwork for interior doors are bolted directly to the block and poured concrete, and she held on tightly.

Laying nets

finished poured floors of windows and doors, we decided it was time to fill Laying nets 2 floors.For this purpose, non-removable formwork and blocks of 600h250h100 sawn into 2 parts along - and 600h100h100 600h150h100.Wide piece set outside and narrow inside.Then there is a reinforcement of 4 bar and filling.
