What are steel framing houses?
As everyone is aware of how brick or conventional houses are made, a constructor or a builder would first dig up the ground and would fill it with bricks, cement, and many other construction materials to build up a strong base or foundation for the building. Then, the constructor would raise walls with layers of bricks and cement from the foundation and finally, he would build-up to the roof and then the floor. With the rapid growth of the world, with the change in clothing, eating and mode of living style of people the mode of house construction has also been changed. People have stepped out of the conventional mode of construction and have shifted to steel framing houses. As the name implies, steel framing houses use a steel frame structure in the building it is also known as steel kit homes western Australia as they use a low-grade steel bar. These buildings use already fabricated horizontal and vertical galvanized steel truss structure to form the walls and roof of the house on the already built brick foundation or base. A truss structure is a very strong structure which is the major advantage of these kinds of houses.
How steel framing houses are constructed:
The construction of awesome steel kit homes is relatively simple and less time consuming then bold brick houses technique. The construction starts with the formation of horizontal and vertical truss structures for floor, roof, and walls. These structures can be rectangular or I beam. Mild steel is mostly used for this purpose as it is a very tough material and can bear the heavyweight of home appliances, furniture, and residents. Thin sheets of mild steel that is up to 3mm are converted into rectangular and I beam for the foundation, walls, and roof of the house by different operations like welding, sheet cutting, bending, and riveting. These structures are made in the workshop according to the building requirements and dimensions. After a structure is made, it is transported to the building site and the construction operation starts with the attachment of floor joists to the foundation of the building. Floor joists are rectangular truss structures that are very strong. They are firmly attached to the foundation in a horizontal manner. These beams can be perfectly parallel or at some horizontal angle. After the floor of the beams has been constructed, the wooden floor or the floor of the customer’s choice is laid down on the beams. This is made sure to make a strong bond of the beams with the foundation and wooden floor with the beams. Then, the truss walls are attached to the floor that is custom made and has the spaces for windows and doors, the walls are attached properly so that no weak bond is there. After walls, roof trusses are installed the roof hip ends are framed using a penalized roof system creating a hybrid roof made from both trusses and panels. The walls and roofs are then perfectly insulated using ceramics, glass wool, etc.
