Economic unit or shed have to be in the country or around private homes. This room is small size and simple construction, which holds tools, garden tools, groceries. Easy to build shed out of OSB with your hands.
Basic information about OSB
To build a barn it is no coincidence that often choose OSB. It is the most popular material for the cladding. OSB or OSB is the standard abbreviation roughly boards. The material is economical, just suitable for the construction of the shed.
Basic information about the OSB Made a plate of wood chips. Using water resistant resin chips are bonded. Applied special technology, the entire process takes place under high temperature and pressure. The result is a durable material for buildings.
Advantages of OSB in the following:
- due to the homogeneous structure does not occur delamination and splitting;
- special distribution technology chips makes a solid plate and, therefore, hold nails well and moisture is not received;
- the material is easy to process;
- plate resistant to temperature changes and mechanical stress;
- despite the small thickness, the material is durable;
- plate harmless to human health;
- affordable price.
How to build
Any building begins with the creation of the project. We should not neglect them when you plan to build a shed out of OSB with your hands. If the structure requires registration to work you need to connect design and construction organization.
At the initial stage you need to immediately consider which areas will be in his log. It can be:
- Workshop to store tools.
- Room to accommodate garden, construction, and similar facilities.
- Place to be able to put the walk-behind, trailer. It is often a separate room.
- Summer bath and shower.
- A place to store the wood, hoses.
When everything is planned, it is necessary to prepare the tools for the job.
Not do during work without:
- construction plumb;
- hammers of different sizes;
- shovel for digging trenches;
- screwdriver and a screwdriver.
The stages of work
Any construction is performed in several stages:
- A Foundation is built.
- The implementation of the waist.
- The installation of the vertical supports and the upper trim.
- Nailing the floor.
- Roof manufacturer.
- The covering of walls.
The barn belongs to lightweight construction, powerful and therefore expensive foundations are not required. If the selected simplified variant, it is possible to do without it. The corners are installed the intermediate and corner posts, they will be the basis. If the Foundation is still needed, it is best to choose columnar.
- At the corners to prepare cavities and to dig the Foundation blocks.
- To dig a pit (depending on buildings), cover with water, cover the gravel. Thoroughly sealed.
- To set the blocks or to do the formwork and pour concrete. Before pouring be sure to lay rebar.
To give structure to gain a foothold.
Installation of supports
Often such a structure as a barn is made with a pent roof. The slope must be always directed in the opposite direction of the door.
- Supports are plumb, fasten plates of metal with screws.
- The front rack should be higher than 2/3 of the back. The focus should be on the back.
- Once you have to consider the installation of support bars for door and window openings.
- You should get a durable and reliable construction.
Next, make the top rail.
With floor the lower part of the design will be fixed and then the rest of the work done on it. The Board will need a minimum thickness of 40 mm without grooves. If you plan to have Underfloor heating we must first make and insulate the subfloor. Is insulated with mineral wool or other materials.
The first Board prikolachivayte to the wall, and then it turns all other. Sure on the other boards to make a wedge. No cracks, and the floor will look aesthetically pleasing.
Prepared first roof-to-cover. It is necessary to consider the width and not to allow that she was very close to the wall.
- Stacked on the longitudinal end of the Board.
- To stack crates.
- Cover the soft roof of roofing material, Ondulin or other similar material.
If necessary the roof to insulate.
At the last stage the wall sheathing OSB panels.
When the design is ready, it remains to insert the Windows and doors. The execution of this work is to use the level and plumb lines.
To build a shed out of OSB with your hands can each host himself. It is necessary to work all to think, to calculate. The phrase that it is better to measure seven times and cut once, is relevant for construction. Not to be redundant in the work tips and hints professionals.
