Learn To Know Material To Build A House
When we will build a house, we must know what materials will be used for building this house. Without knowing material to build a house, we will not finish this house building. After we design this house floor plan, then we design this house shape from front side, left side and back side. Before we can start building this house, we must calculate first all of budget needed. We can calculate this budget as long as we know all of materials that we will use. Without knowing these materials, itâ€™s impossible for us calculating this budget. Commonly a house has several parts, here are foundations, structure, wall, roof and floor. From these each parts we can information to know what materials for each parts.
Starting from foundation to know material to build a house . This foundation is built with cement, sand, stone and iron rod. Iron rod as building skeleton for making column and sloof. Every building need it. Without column and sloof, a home building will not have strong construction. Then structure. Structure is built with cement, sand and iron rod. Wall is built with brick, cement and sand. Roof frame is built with wood and floor is built with cement and sand. Then we still complete these parts with other materials. Wall must be painted with paint. On this wall, there are door and window installed. This door and window are made from wood and glass. Roof are completed with gypsum as its ceiling. And on the floor we will install ceramic.
These above explanations are simple example, because there are a lot of materials variation when we build a house. For example when we will build little house trailer or small home from wood. Material composition is different with home on the first example. On this small house from wood, wood is dominating material. The existing of brick here is less. All of wood wall is built with wood. The same condition on tiny house. Other house type, such as glass house has different material composition with this house. On the glass house, the existing of glass can be found on several side. These examples explain that different house type will need different material to build a house.
From this information, we can know what we should do. When we will house in less budget, we can build using brick or wood. And when we will build luxurious building, we can choose glass as dominating material. And we can also combine these materials to get better result with effective cost. When we are planning these materials, we can calculate all of cost. Some spreadsheet software, such as Excell can be useful tool to do it.
