At the moment, the construction of cottages takes a rather long period of time. Initially, for any building, it will be necessary to fill in the foundation, which should be a strong basis for the entire structure.
If the house is frame, then there is an opportunity to save on the foundation and make it less deep. All this is due to the fact that the modular houses are very light and in some cases they can be placed even without the foundation. But it depends on the soil on the site.
There are several types of foundation. Each of them is distinguished by its properties and methods of building. The strip foundation is very popular. Often you can meet it in summer cottages. Its depth depends on the scale of the structure. The deeper the foundation of the level of freezing of the soil, the more durable and high -quality it will be. All this only increases the life of the structure.
Also, do not forget about the monolithic foundation. It is considered a variety of tape, as it is poured with parts, like him. Previously, the trench, which was dug under the foundation, is reinforced with a metal frame and wet sand is poured into the base of the trench.
There is also a block type of foundation. For him, special building blocks are used, which are fastened together with reinforcement and concrete.
