The reason, which is very difficult to describe with words the technology of construction brick bath is, in bricklaying the many nuances, you need only see the eyes.

The Foundation for brick bath

So, construction of the baths of brick with their hands begins with the construction of the Foundation. Since brick box bath has a large weight, the Foundation for the bath should have a high strength. It is best to use the construction of strip Foundation, depth the construction of which should be below the level of soil freezing. For more information on, how to create a strip Foundation for bath, read this article. After, as the Foundation of the bathhouse will be built, it is necessary to carefully carry out the waterproofing and start laying brick boxes baths, which begins with the laying angles of the buildings.

Masonry corners

Protected from moisture, the Foundation should be applied sand-cement mortar (ratio 2:1) with a thickness of about 20 mm, which will be the laying of corners of the bath.

During the laying angles, you must use one of the schemes bricklaying, which are as follows:

Before moving to the walls, you need to put a few rows of bricks on the corners.


The process of laying bricks

Depending on, which scheme masonry and dressings of brick was chosen for construction of the corners of the bath, are walls and the walls themselves. A dressing brick is recommended to implement a single-row or multi-row system dressings, depending on the size of the building, as well as the availability of the 2nd floor.

It should be noted, during the masonry walls of the baths as determined by the option of insulating walls. This can be the subsequent wall insulation baths with mineral wool, either create the walls of the empty space (about 6 cm), which is either filled expanded clay, or just air.

Please note that, the laying of the first row of the walls of the baths should be of solid brick. In the subsequent rows of masonry shall be allowed to use bricks with chips or halves (quarters) bricks, the main thing is to put them on the inner side of the wall.

Also important moment, as with masonry walls, and at a laying of corners of the bath is the thickness and density of the stitches. Durability and aesthetic appeal of a brick bath will depend on, as far as the stitches will be the same throughout the length of the wall, and what is the thickness of the stitches used. Bad influence on the strength of the building is too thin, either too thick seams, therefore, it is recommended to create the thickness of the seam within 10-12 mm.

Well, the last of the main nuances of the masonry brick walls of the bath – create window and door openings. During bricklaying must according to the project write the appropriate openings. Also in the side surfaces of the openings necessary to install two wooden plugs, which should be the same size bricks and is additionally insulated roofing material. Windows and doors we recommend inserting at the stage of masonry walls, when fully established the appropriate opening. Over Windows and doorways, you must install the jumper, as shown in the photo:

Tips for building the baths of brick

In addition to the above technology of construction brick bath, I would like to draw attention to some very important nuances, or rather tips:

  1. For building brick bath use red brick
  2. For that would split a brick in two or four parts, use the hammer-kirochku
  3. When designing baths the dimensions of the walls create multiple dimensions of the brick. For example, if brick size 240*120*65 mm, the size of the wall should be a multiple of 75 mm, and if the brick size 240*120*88, the size of the wall should be a multiple of 100 mm.
  4. Laying rows exercise, focusing on the cord-prichalku, which is stretched on each row is fixed and the nails, hammered into horizontal joints.

  5. Be sure to follow the horizontal and vertical masonry, using a Builder's level.
  6. In any case, do not use bricks with defects masonry corners, partitions, as well as load-bearing columns.
  7. If you are using for the construction of the bath brick clay brick, be sure to pre-soak it in water.
  8. Handle the seams between the rows with a special tool – grouting,. Processing must be carried out first vertical joints, and then horizontal.
  9. In the steam-room brick bath is recommended masonry brick oven, during the construction phase of the walls.
  10. Also on the stage of construction baths should immediately consider or implement the installation chimney (if in the future will use electric oven, the chimney is not needed).
  11. From, how well will be made paro-, heat- and waterproofing, will depend on the time of heating/cooling baths, and the fuel consumption at this event.

It is at least the knowledge, you have to invest in the construction of baths of brick with their hands. Please note that, that this event is better to pass into the hands of professionals, because. repair of poorly constructed baths will cost much more expensive.

Also it is recommended that before construction of the brick baths to practice on a less complex construction, for example, hozbloke or gazebo made of bricks. In this case, you nabete hand and be more prepared for the challenges, related to bricklaying.
