If purely for recreation on the background of nature, it makes sense to do an outdoor terrace or gazebo. Veranda is erected to improve home insulation, because it acts as a vestibule between the street and the front door, blocking a direct hit by cold masses in space. Incidental extension function - to be a place of rest - will be carried out only if the room is spacious and warmed. Then, in the winter you can sit over a cup of tea, contemplating the winter scenery. Try to understand how best to attach the porch to the house, so it was warm in the winter and summer air max.


What should be taken into account before construction?

selection of materials

Since the veranda will be part of the main building,that its style should match the design of the house itself. It is recommended to use the same materials that make up the walls and roof of the house to the structure looked harmoniously.

Planning and legalization of the project

Porch is always built so as to cover athe front door. Therefore, already finished the house, you can not attach it to the side on which you want. Without entrance into this room is detached from the house, and carry him food and tea from the kitchen will have across the street.

verandas dimensions come up with the owners themselves, taking into accountthe number of people who could at the same time it rest. For the needs of the family of 5-6 people is enough built 3x4 meters. But it is worth to take into account the general view from the street. If you think a small veranda and villa itself - a two-storey, it is unlikely that your architectural ensemble will look harmonious. But to a small house just yet, you can attach the porch the full width of the building. This will increase the effective area, and from the looks quite decent.

But for any footage you have to buildofficially legalized. And not after the construction, and before! When you come up with the design veranda and pretend its general form, go to a special department dedicated to the design of buildings, porches and order project. After its production to go into the architectural department of the city to get a building permit and make changes to the design of the house. Why is it important to do beforehand? On approval of the project and is about 2 months, so it's better if they come in the winter, when there began the construction season.

Layout and split site

Before starting work, it is necessary to preparearea. To do this, remove the fertile layer (about 15 cm) and taken it into the garden or flower beds. The platform is spread and begin to breakdown. According to the dimensions specified in the project, mark the boundaries of the future verandas. To do this, drive in the corners of the construction iron rods or wooden pegs on the perimeter and pull the twine tight.

breakdown site

The outer edge of the breakdown must match the dimensions of the porch, and the inner retreat to the foundation width

Creating the foundation: Fill rules

The most common in Russia for Attached Garageverandas make tape or pier foundation equal to the depth of the foundation the main building. It is recommended not to connect them into a single monolith, because the house and porch have a different weight, and therefore different degrees of shrinkage. And the building is not so heavy reached for a light construction, put veranda on a separate basis. To do this, between the foundation of the house and porch leave a gap of 4 cm.

Attention! When you create a foundation should take into account features of the soil in yourlocation and overall construction weight. Lightweight foundation on heaving soils can "play", and then moves away from the porch wall of the main building. In addition, they are not designed for heavy wall, for example of brick, and can shrink under their pressure.

Strip foundation

Used for the construction of a large veranda of bricks or blocks, which cover the heavy roof (slate, metal, etc.). The easiest way to build a foundation of tape porch to the house from the concrete.

Strip foundation

On the tape the foundation will stand the heaviest veranda

For this:

  • Digs a trench (dimensions are calculated on the foundation of the house).
  • Formwork is put at the same height as the foundation of the future (or slightly higher). It is made of planks, beating their shields.
  • Concrete prepared in the following proportions: 1 part cement, 3 parts sand and 6 parts gravel.
  • The first layer of concrete is poured on the bottom and strengthen him with stones, that happened about 10 cm.
  • Next, pour the next batch, again added stones, etc.
  • For the top layer of concrete stones are not used, and the surface is leveled with a trowel and leave to ustyvaniya (3-4 days).
  • If there is a fever, then a couple of times a day to shed in order to avoid cracking of the foundation.

pier foundation

If the porch is framing or wood, theYou can put it on the pier foundation. For hedging of heaving soil to dig holes to a depth below the freezing of the soil in your area (more than a meter). For small and light enough to put veranda poles only at the corners. For more worth making a series of intermediate columns in increments of 50-60 cm between them.

  2. The foundation cover with a double layer of roofing material (and tape, and columnar).
  3. Is fixed on the foundation of logs, pre missed their antiseptic.
  4. Lay-edged boards (5 cm thick).

  1. On the subfloor ready to put the boards for the sill, connecting the corners of the "direct lock."
  2. Engravings in the bars every half meter grooves uprights.
  3. Put racks, fixing them with nails and staples.
  4. On top of the rack is attached to the upper timber strapping.
  5. Near the slope of the roof beam nailed home-run, which will be based on the rafters. It is necessary to take the anchor bolts (and the rack adjacent to the building).

Only if you have a loft-style house, oneof the layers you do a vapor barrier. The veranda vapor barrier is not necessary, because the roof space will be used. In addition, the qualitative thermal insulation of walls and floors, a vapor barrier is contraindicated. After a couple of rooms have somewhere to go. And it will leak through the ceiling into the attic, and from there - to escape to the outside. To do this is to lay as a waterproofing layer Superdiffuzionnaya special membrane that does not let moisture out, but steam passes freely inside. However, it does not apply to steel and metal coatings because they can rust from condensation. To buy a special metal condensate film.

Superdiffuzionnaya membrane

Superdiffuzionnaya membrane consists of microscopic pores that resemble funnels

Skinning of walls and installing windows

After creating a rough flooring can sew up the frame, leaving openings for windows and doors. For this:

  • Locations window placement window sill set, which should be about a foot from the floor. We fix the board to the uprights.
  • Sutured frame materials, which will bekeep warm and approach to the main building. Inside it may be plywood, and on top of it - wall paneling, exterior - siding or wood. But certainly between them lay a layer of insulation and waterproof film (on both sides of a heater) to prevent moisture penetrating from the street and from inside the steam in it. Do not forget to leave the window openings.
