Regarding traditional houses, prefabricated

Besides the incredible
looks, inside and out, the material eliminates the use of cement,
bricks and many other compliments to make the house ready. A wooden
home is also extremely cozy and manages to keep the atmosphere fresh
and airy no matter how damp the humid the weather gets. And that's
why it’s a good choice for tropical weather. Also don't forget
accessibility of wood in this region, which make it the first choice
of many professionals.
By choosing a wooden
house you save many hours of home maintenance that a regular masonry
house required and you can instead enjoy more quality time with your
family and kids as they are said to require much less maintenance
than other types of housing. This is certainly a choice that saves
money and time in the long run, leaving more space for you to worry
about what really matters: quality of your life. And if the house is
on a piece of land like they usually are, the opportunity to have a
garden and be more close to nature is always a good selling argument.
What Materials and
maintenance is required for a wooden house?
For this internal
temperature to remain very pleasant, however, it is ideal that some
care is taken, such as betting on a thermal blanket so that the cold
and heat are absorbed, in addition to preventing infiltrations.
The maintenance of such
a house is minimal, but some people still prefer to varnish the
entire exterior surface and ensure an always new home. They construct
them usually 50cm above the floor for better ventilation, and to
avoid the humidity.
Massive and timber wood
are the most common for this type of construction, and they generally
do not present any risk for termite infestation. Although the owner
may have some fear of this type of problem, there are several types
of products and treatments to avoid any problems.
How can i reduce noise
and crackling in my wooden house?
noises appears to be a common problem and characteristics of wooden
houses when they are exposed to very high or very low temperatures,
that is not an issue if the building has been built with dry wood.
The constant noises
only happen when the builders construct houses with fresh wood, that
when it gets dry, it leaves cracks in the boards and generates more
fractions that results in the famously annoying crackling noise.
How is durability of a
Whoever thinks the
wooden house will last less than a masonry house, is believing a
myth. The only issue to be taken into consideration is the location
of the wooden house and where it is constructed. after all, it is
safe to say that such a house would not withstand natural disasters,
such as floods, hurricanes and earthquakes as any normal masonry
house would not.
What are different
styles of wooden house?
In addition to hardwood
and timber, there are still many people who love to build their homes
with recycled timber. It gives a charm to the look of the house,
which presents a much more rustic and country aesthetic when it is
made with wood without much treatment, varnish or color change.
This home may have a
rustic look, combining with the beachy look. But that does not mean
that whoever lives in the city or in an urban context can not have
such a lovely home! To match the warmth of the flooring, bet on a
light with yellow lamps and a few simple touches of color, on
decorative objects such as cushions and other accessories.
Now, if you prefer the
modern style, then your house can have a more square shape with clean
lines and wide windows around the entire structure, taking advantage
of the natural context if you have the privilege of having an
incredible home in the middle of nature.
