Section through a Cut in Floor, Timber framed Building Part 1


So G’day and welcome back to Buildsum and as you can see I might set up to do another section through video and this time It’s going to be a section through a cut in or timber-frame building with the cut in floor So it’s a little bit similar to our Brick veneer building with a platform floor however there are some differences which I’ll point out as we go through So similar to the last video you can see again. I’ve got a strip footing set up Which will run around the perimeter of the building and we’ve got holes dug for our blob footings So the first thing we need to do is to put our reinforcement in for our strip footing so you can either use Trench mesh and clips or in this case I’ve got bars and stirrups all sitting up on bar chairs and placed in the center of the Trench So that we get good cover on both sides their reinforcement no reinforcement required for our blob footing and This should be inspected by the council inspector or the private certifier before pouring But once they’ve poured you can pour them And you can see kept them down Roughly about a course of Brickwork So that we can cover them up later on and the same with our blog footing over here Then we can start our brickwork, so we have our dwarf wall with our vents built in to allow airflow underneath the floor and of course our engaged pier on the back of a dwarf wall and our isolated pier out here in to support our bearers Then our damp proof course And our Ant capping and here’s the first main change is That the Ant capping here is actually double sided so it has a turn down on this edge as well So that if the termites were to come up between the bricks and go this way They would have to go around this lip as well now normally what happens is When the house gets built people will bend that back down flat against the Brickwork Not the best thing to do But people just cut their legs on it or whatever so normally it gets bent back out of the road Or gets bent or flattened and covered up with the with the cladding and It’s not the best thing to do but that’s what happens So once we’ve got our damp proof course and ant cap down and then put in our bearer and this time the bearer goes all the way out until it’s flush for the outside of the Brickwork still maintaining the 400mm distance off the ground for the majority of the building and you can Actually within 2m of the dwarf wall the ground can slope back up to about 150mm off the bearer but only for the 2m around the wall Otherwise the majority of the building you have to have for it or 400mm clearance underneath the bearer So the bearer is down we can then put our joists in you’ll notice this time I’ve got a double joist here, and this Joist is actually flush with the outside of the Brickwork The reason for the double Joist i’ll showing a second, is so that when we put the wall on here because this is what we call it cut in floor the walls going to go in first and then we’re going to cut flooring in between the walls whereas last time the platform floor we put the flooring down first So it’s a little bit different so there’s the wall and you can see that because I’ve spaced this apart and The wall sits half on this joist and gives us half the joist to sit our flooring on alright, so that’s a Timber-frame building with a cut in floor just at the part of the cut in floor in the next next video I’ll take you through the rest of the wall and the rest of construction sequence
