STAGES OF CONSTRUCTION

Wooden house construction takes from 1 to 3 months on average. The entire cycle of work starting with the preparation of the building site and ending with finishing touches lasts about a year.

This construction period is due to the fact that the work is carried out in several stages, between which it
is necessary to take technological breaks.

PROJECT PREPARATION

Construction begins with the selection or preparing the project. You can order from us a brand new individual project or choose ready one from a catalogue. The project should include the related wall kit manufacture and assembly documentation. Under the condition of ordering a house kit or a turnkey solution in our company, the project documentation will be included in the price.

Wondorf has created a catalogue full of ready-to-build projects. You can select one of them, or provide us with your own sketches for the development of an individual project.

FOUNDATION

When the project is ready, it is necessary to proceed to laying the foundation. Having the blueprints in hands, the client can prepare the foundation on his own, but ideally, this work should be hand over to specialists. It must be remembered that the durability of the house depends on the quality and accuracy of the foundation.


The type of foundation is selected depending on the soil characteristics on the construction site as well as the size of the house:


  • Column foundation. Suitable for a small house, on condition that the site is located on a solid ground. This is a fairly cost-effective option.
  • Shallow strip foundation. On this foundation, you can build a house of any size. Suitable for sandy, clay, coarse-clastic soils.
  • Deep strip foundation. A monolithic strip foundation has a high bearing capacity ideal for a heavy structure. It must be laid below the soil freezing level.
  • Wall foundation. It is made of a monolithic reinforced concrete plates. Suitable for construction on an unsafe soils.
  • Pile and friction foundations. These types of foundations are suitable for construction in regions with shifting and expansive soils.

When planning the stages of building a wooden house, it is important to note the fact that most types

of foundation require time to set. Before starting the assembly of the house a column, strip or wall types of the foundations are setting out for 1 month. During this time, we manage to prepare the

entire house wall kit. Pile and friction foundations do not require setting; construction can begin

immediately after its laying.

PRODUCTION OF THE HOUSE WALL KIT

When the project is done, the foundation is being laid and all utility systems (water and gas supply, electrical wiring and sewage) are being carried out, in the meantime, Wondorf specialists with the help of the latest technology and years of experience will produce a full wall kit for your future wooden house.

HOUSE ESSEMBLY

When the foundation is ready, parts of wall kit are delivered to the construction site and the assembly of the house begins.

1. Installation of batter boards and sill logs. Laying the first layer of logs is a very crucial stage. You must make sure that corners of the foundation are laid out precisely on the same level. A layer of waterproofing material is laid on the foundation, and on top of it goes the first row of sill logs. The logs for the first layer are laid based on the location of all the future bearing and room dividing walls. For the first row, it is necessary to choose the largest in diameter and
straightest logs of the highest quality and carefully treat them with antiseptic and water repellent agents.

2. Assembly of supporting structure, walls and partitions. When the first layer of logs is done, we can begin one of the most important stages of building a house – walls assembly. It is necessary to add layers of thermal insulator between each log. The most commonly used material for this purpose is a jute-based fabric. While creating external corners of the house, logs can be connected together at the ends. Such a connection is called a “butt joint”. To
reduce heat conductivity and make the corners more reliable, it would be useful to create special joints. The most common types of woodworking joints are “dovetail”, “tongue and groove”, “half-lap”. Internal partitions are assembled simultaneously with the walls. The height of the log for both internal and external walls must be the same, but the difference lies in the fact that logs for partitions are usually of smaller thickness.

3. Roofing. Right after the assembly of walls, you can proceed to build the roof. The assembly of the roof starts with installing the supporting rafter system, following by the installation of the
lathing, then we lay the final roofing material. Since, during the first year after the assembly wooden houses tend to shrink, it is recommended to temporarily cover the roof with soft material.


4. Finishing works. At the end of the walls and roof installation, any wooden house needs from 3 to 9 months to shrink. The house made of rounded logs, profiled or glued timber does not
require any exterior decoration works, it can only be sanded and coated with retardants, it is also possible to paint the house any color you want. Wooden houses per se are unique in terms of design, but they also carry a special atmosphere of purity, harmony, and stability.
