Building a Healthy House

healthy-home-for-the-familyBuilding a home is not just about the form and building materials, but also a design that supports healthy living.

One of the qualities that are very important in building a house is the house should be healthy! Outside of the pursuit of quality of health of interest or application materials you have the latest products on a house. This is the most basic question that must be met.

A healthy home is a home design that supports the health of its inhabitants. The house is quite open, flexible, and easily maintained. The material used is free from harmful chemicals. Children and parents can access easily and safely to various places in the house.

Of course there are still a number of other requirements. Some are practically presented here, and can be a point in the planning of your home.

Natural lighting

Natural lighting coming from the sun. Light will illuminate and give warmth previously dark corners. Thus preventing damp room. Sunlight can kill 80% bacteria and germs that could potentially grow.

Plug the opening of doors, windows, bouvelicht, or vent. The percentage of openings in the ideal home is 10% -20% of floor space.

The location of openings should be adjusted to the room in need of natural light. Also, sync with the direction of the beam so that he can enter through openings that we make.

Air Circulation

Smooth circulation of air makes the air inside the house cooler and healthier. Easy exchange of air, oxygen and carbon dioxide levels balanced. Keep the ceiling is not too low. Hot air under the roof will be easy on the body, if the ceiling is too low. Minimum ceiling height is 3m from the floor. That way, the temperatures at the top is not easy on the body.

You can also request made under the cavity or hole in the roof. Height ranges from 10cm-20cm in length which can be adjusted to the size of the roof beams. This will make the air cavity under the hot roof, easily exchanged with a new air cooler.

Water Supply

At least, every one occupant requires 60 liters of clean water per day. To ensure the provision of water, a house requires a water storage tank (reservoir).

Making water wells must have a sufficient distance from the septic tank hole. Minimal is 3m. If less, it is feared choli bacteria from septic tanks will seep into water wells clean.

Waste Water Channels

A healthy home is also characterized by a good sewer. Waste bias comes from the kitchen, bathroom, service area. Consider the following.

  • Installation of pipe bends should be minimal in order to smooth the flow of waste water flows.
  • The slope of the discharge pipe from the source to roil the city is 70 degrees. Degrees that will make waste water flowing lancer.
  • Use a trap for the goose neck pipe under the sink and the sink so that the insects caught and prevent the musty odor.
  • Replace the bathtub control in the range 4m distance between one another.
  • Channel effluent wastewater from toilets to be made separately and distributed only to the septic tank.

Walls and floor are dry

Moisture may occur in the walls and floors. This will create a room that tends to wet and become a source of breeding of germs.

You can apply the tiles. Ceramics is a type of waterproof material. Floor or wall to be easily dried.

The walls are attached to the wall of a neighbor’s house will generally moist. Between the two walls with water-resistant materials (waterproofing) before it is closed ceramics.

Garbage disposal

Make sure that in making the design of the house there is adequate landfills. Bins should be sufficient to accommodate the amount of garbage daily. There is a cover, and have holes for drainage if the trash was cleaned.

Wells penetrating

Clean water is increasingly difficult to obtain. Meanwhile, we often let the rain water flushing into the city line. You can ask the architect of your home to provide rain water wells in your yard. A minimum by making a biopori hole.

Some things about the above you can discuss with the architect. Once the stage was built there to always care for and maintain the cleanliness of the house. All this will make your stay more calm. Living comfortably with the family for a long time.

Light Steel Frame Roof

Light Steel Frame Roof

The roof has a function as a cover or protector of the home from rain and heat of the sun and is one component that can add to the overall aesthetics of homes.

The roof consists of the roof frame and roof cover. Type of roof truss used the wood roof frame and lightweight steel roof truss (truss). As for the commonly used tin roofing, asbestos, shingles and tile.

Lightweight steel roof truss into the functional equivalent option in some ways even better than wood materials as more expensive anddifficult to find good quality wood materials.

In terms of durability, lightweight steel roof truss is superior when compared with wood materials. Material mild steel safe to termites, corrosion resistant and resistant to weather conditions.

Lightweight steel roof truss in addition to more economical because they were cheaper than wood material also has a lighter weight. Character and mild steel weights create more robust structure of the house and the roof is more stable against bending, torsion and expansion so that it meets one of the components that support the earthquake-resistant housing.

Zincalume, galvanized and Galvalume support the application of lightweight steel roof truss is more practical because through the fabrication process is then performed on-site assembly process as well as the more precision, thereby reducing the risk of roof leaks that could cause damage to the ceiling of the residence.

Lightweight steel roof truss or roof truss wood selected and used as roof material ultimately is determined based on the needs and desires of the house itself.
