Foundation, preparing the ground ...


To collect the rain water was invented by a small temporary pond Hydro-insulated plastic film, dug a pit and lined with a film, it almost certainly has served us, but very slightly, the water still had to carry a column in a nearby village.


For layout of the basement on a site used by the ancient method. Devices are installed on every street corner in two pieces and crossing the walls. Stuffed by two nails, they provide a preliminary foundation width, stretched string, and then formed the foundation of twine loop is adjusted - Reconcile the distance from the fence, the diagonal and the width of the foundation.

device, a stretch of twine

Once the string was pulled and verified the diagonal, have engaged in harvesting vegetation from a grillage, removed a layer just under the grillage, denoting thus form the future foundation.

Twine tight, choose a primer for future grillage

After the vegetation layer under the grillage was removed, began marking the pillars for this drill to make small holes with a depth of no more than 10cm, so, for an overall plan and refine the boundaries of their future location.

Markings pillars...

and again pillars

That's the drill that drilled holes under the pillars.


Realizing that the pillars are sticking out of the earth in different ways depending on the slope of the site, was coined by a reference to removal from the land of the top of the column to a certain height. To this end, the stakes were driven close to the holes, their upper edge of the designated altitude future column, along the perimeter was stretched wire alignment of all the pegs and diagonal wire for the correct horizon.

Height future columns marked pegs

Meanwhile, I prepared a reinforcement cages for the columns, for this had been cut to size (2,3-2,5 m) rods, and then fasten all wires and develop. These 40 pieces were produced. Want to see next?, click the link "forward"!
