The properties of ceramic blocks have made them one of the most popular materials for the construction of residential, industrial and commercial buildings.
A special "warm" joint solution was created for them, which allows you to form thin, heat-retaining seams.
Due to the similarity to brick, there is an opinion that ordinary cement-sand mortar is enough for ceramic blocks, in order to save money, it is not necessary to buy a special mixture. Is this so?
Let's figure out which solution is suitable for ceramic blocks and whether you can create it yourself.
Ceramic stone can be laid on an ordinary mortar of cement and sand, the operational characteristics of the structure do not change. The only negative is that there are cold bridges. This is due to differences in the composition of a special "warm" solution for ceramic blocks and cement-sand:
They correspond to the characteristics of the composition of ceramic blocks.
Sand in the CPR is a cold component that creates porosity of the solution and reduces its thermal conductivity.
The 3x2 Garden Barn Project includes a list of materials, a step-by-step assembly guide and a 3D model made in SketchUp. You can find a 3D model in my group in the contact "Do It Yourself", there you can find other projects.
I wanted to create a small space that does not take up much space in a small area and at the same time can be versatile. Such a shed can be suitable for organizing a small workshop, storing garden tools or storage space for things that have no place in the house.
List of materials
Roofing and siding:
The total amount of 86,380 rubles can be safely rounded up to 90-100 thousand rubles, so that this shed turns out to be fully equipped.
Step - Foundation and Floor
Start by choosing a suitable location for the foundation of your barn. An ideal place would be a flat, solid surface away from trees. It is not necessary to have a concrete base for such a structure, it is enough to compact the soil, put waterproofing and cover it with a small layer of gravel.
