Frame-panel houses

The branch "Domostroeniye" is ready to offer frame-panel houses as per already existing projects, as well as to make any frame-panelized house under customer design.

Technology of construction of frame-panelized houses first appeared in Belarus ten years ago, but has become widespread only recently.

Construction period of a frame-panelized house and advantages of construction

The special design of frame-panelized house can reduce consumption of wood, which makes this technology one of the most affordable in its segment.

Frame-panelized house is built in a remarkably short time. After just 3 months you will have a complete house, fit for interior decoration. This is possible due to the special construction technology. All the main elements of the frame-panelized house are produced at the factory, so the only thing remaining is to make installation of the finished structure..

Frame-panelized house does not shrink, therefore it can be erected at any time of the year. Immediately after the erection of a frame-panelized house internal and external finishing can be done.

Facilities of frame-panelized construction technology and computer-aided design expand the borders of the future design of the house. All you have to do is to create a project of a house and submit it for endorsement.

Usage of frame-panelized houses

Frame-panelized houses are built on a lightweight foundation and do not require additional preparation. Every single element of frame-panel house does not weigh more than eighty kg, so the foundation of the house does not require extra strength and is light-weight strip.
Frame-panelized houses are very durable. Service life of a house considering full compliance with the construction technology makes 30-50 years!
For the manufacture of frame-panelized houses only natural wood is used, which makes them environmentally friendly.
The use of flexible floating structures in construction provides a frame-panelized house with high seismic resistance and durability.

Frame-panelized houses have good insulation performance. Mineral wool and ecowool, used as insulation, provide coolness in summer and comfort in winter.

Special treatment and impregnation of the materials of frame-panelized houses makes it fireproof, moisture-resistant and protects from rotting and humidity. The material of the house walls prevents showing signs of fungi, bacteria, and doesn’t respond to impact of the environment.
Finishing work on the frame-panelized houses is not expensive and does not require much effort. Ceiling, wall and floor of frame-panelized houses are perfectly aligned, therefore immediately after house erection you have to just stop the joints, apply primer and then begin pasting wallpaper and laying flooring.
In the frame-panelized houses you can use the standard double-glazed windows and doors, as window and door openings are perfectly aligned and have a standard size.

The structure of frame-panelized house allows to hide the wiring, plumbing and utilities in the internal part of the wall, fully preserving the aesthetic appearance.

For exterior finishing of frame-panelized houses a wide range of materials are used: decorative plaster, artificial stone, tile, brick, ceramic tile, ventilated facade panels, wall panels, various types of siding, etc.
The limiting factor here is just your taste and affordability.

Materials used for the construction of frame-panelized house are tested on precision equipment, this way the probability of a defective product is reduced to a minimum.
Using only natural materials makes frame-panelized houses completely safe for permanent residence.
For creation of elements of a frame-panelized house primarily softwood (pine, fir) is used, because it practically doesn`t rot during special treatment and retains its properties.
Boards from mineral wool are used for insulation. Insulation is placed between the uprights of a house, which provides maximum thermal insulation.

Frame-panelized house construction technology

The use of high-precision equipment during the construction of frame-panelized house allows you to collect all of its elements as a construction set that provides incredible strength and durability.
Frame-Panelized house is made on an individual project, therefore all the elements of the frame-panelized house must strictly comply with construction technology:
The foundation of frame-panelized house is laid taking into account the total weight of the house and soil.
The frame of a frame-panelized house is obligatory to be sheathed with sheet materials, the width of the weld shall not exceed 3 mm.
The material of the frame-panelized house is treated with special antiseptic mixtures and varnishes.
To avoid cracks while painting, the walls of frame-panelized house should be sheathed with an additional layer of veneer or any other sheet material. The sheet material provides strength and stiffens the frame of the assembly of a frame-panelized house, consequently its fastening to the frame must be very dense.

The structure of a frame-panelized house 

The structure of frame-panelized house consists of a frame building (box), roof panels that make up the walls of the building, as well as floors and floor structure.
The basis of the frame- panelized house is its frame. Usually a frame is made of bars. However, this depends on the house assignment.
Frame of the house is insulated all around. Most commonly mineral wool and ecowool are used as insulant.
Frame- panelized houses are sheathed with batten or block-house on both sides. For this different types of batten or block-house are used . Natural moisture batten is used to sheath the inside, and forced drying batten is used to sheath the outside.
For the frame-panelized houses there are different types of roofing: flat, pitched or soft, depending on your personal preferences and the characteristics of the project.
The walls of frame-panelized houses have a layered structure. Outside frame and walls of the house are sheathed with vapor-permeable membrane which protects the structure from wind and water. This film has a porous structure that allows the timber and the insulant to "breathe" remaining dry and letting moisture vapor pass through at the same time. Floor structure of frame-panelized houses is a horizontal wooden structure that serves to divide the building into floors or vertically separates the living space. Floor decreases the weight and ensures the stability of the house. Furthermore, it plays the role of additional sound and thermal insulation.
Outside panel-frame house is finished with modern facing materials: siding, decorative plaster, face brick or stone, etc

From inside the frame-panelized house is covered with water vapor retarder film and sheets of drywall. For active heating frame-panelized houses are equipped with electric air heating systems.

Types of frame-panelized houses

Frame-panelized houses, built under Canadian technology, are assembled directly at the factory. The frame and the wall of the house are assembled upon the prepared construction of OSB plates (panels) and wooden beams. All subsequent levels of the building are assembled the same way. The roof of frame-panelized house is made from truss, roof boards and roofing. Then, after wall insulation wiring and plumbing is done, then the windows and doors are assembled and you can proceed to the exterior and interior decoration of the house.
Frame-panelized houses, built under German technology, differ from others in the entire assembly: the structure of panel walls, floors, panel, frame, windows, insulation and material finishing works are done at the factory and not on the construction site.
This technology involves use of heavy construction equipment, which created difficulties in the conditions of summer cottage construction. Another difference is the use of a standard roof, which installation is performed at the factory, what on the one hand facilitates the construction, and on the other hand does not allow you to choose a roof to your taste.
Frame-panelized houses, built under the SNIP technology, basically contain foamed plastic panels. The panels are made for the walls and floors of the house. Installation can be carried out using a crane, as well as manually. The high content of foam in the material is not environmentally friendly and it is the main drawback of this technology.
Wood frame frame-panelized houses houses have a hard bearing structure of columns, beams and trusses which support a roof. Wooden uprights, beams and bracing in the frame-panelized house are made entirely of coniferous trees. Wood frame frame-panelized houses are not only very durable, but also thanks to the use of glass have excellent decorative appearance.
Frame-panelized houses of seasonal type differ from the standard ones in wall thickness and simplicity of its framework. This technology is designed for seasonal residence and is used mainly for garden houses, therefore its strength and cost are by times lower than usual.
