How to construct bath of slag stone

Long since the Russian bath was built from tree and was considered not only as the place of ablution, but also clinic. To gain improving effect, it is optional to take a steam bath in the bath constructed of natural materials. It is possible to replace the processed logs or wooden bar with slag stones, and the building in short terms without big investments will appear on your site.

It is required to you

  • - slag stones;
  • - brick;
  • - waterproofing material;
  • - cement;
  • - facing brick;
  • - wooden rails;
  • - roofing material;
  • - lining;
  • - level;
  • - ladder;
  • - fixing material.


1. Study type the bath gruntastroitelstvo from slag stones consists of several stages: laying of the foundation, formations of walls, constructions of roof, warming and finishing of the building. To exclude emergency drawdowns of bath, analyze composition of the ground. For example, peat bogs, silt and fine sand are unsuitable for construction – such soil at first needs to be strengthened. Crude clay soils are subject to changes depending on temperature and precipitation therefore the optimum basis for the base is uniform dry rock. If on your site virgin sand or sand-stony basis, the basis stack without strengthening.

2. Choose type fundamentadlya baths two options of the base will approach: column or tape. In the first case as support separate columns, in the second – the continuous strip from stone, concrete or brick outlining contour of future building act. The slag stones structure of walls will not render heavy load on the basis therefore it is more reasonable to use the column base. Establish brick or concrete columns of 500х500 mm in size on all expected corners of bath and the bearing internal partitions at distance no more than 1.5 m from each other and you pass to their binding. Lay reinforced concrete beams over columns and carry out base waterproofing.

3. Lay out bath walls, alternating the metal gauze through each 2-3 horizontal rows – it will give designs durability. That the laying has turned out equal, use level for control. On the last number of blocks put wooden bars which will become the basis of single-pitch and gable roof. If you want to have the additional room under roof, you will suit option of gable roof. Its mounting is carried out by forming of farms and beams on which furring is mounted. The roofing material can be used various look: roofing material, ondulin, professional flooring, slate. If you are limited in means, use soft roofing material – it will become temporary option for reliable protection of your construction against atmospheric precipitation.

4. Warming and otdelkachtoba on ceiling and walls of bath condensate did not accumulate, pay special attention to their warming. Basic rule: each subsequent insulation layer has to possess more improved properties of heat preservation from within. Make on shlakoblochny walls vertical furring of rails not less than 50 mm thick and lay basalt heater, over it - the foiled paper. To provide air gap between finishing materials and warming, lay on foil of rail 25 mm thick and fix on them finishing wooden lining. For durability of porous slag stones it is necessary to carry out finishing of walls from outer end. Plaster them or impose with facing brick - it will help to hide unattractive color of material and will give to the building sound look.
