Proposed option krysheval add-ins experts call the “Danish well.” Its base is a ring of large rough stones, fastened with cement mortar. Internal diameter — 1.2 m, and outer — 1.5 m. Such massive stone walls requires a solid Foundation. They can serve existing concrete ring dug wells or made specifically pledged to the depth of soil freezing in the winter for the area. For the purpose of saving material such a Foundation is not a continuous annular shape, and is made in the form of a series of concrete poles, subsequently connecting to the ring only at the top.

Outlining a place for the Foundation, is removed under a 15-cm layer of soil according to the diameter of the future of masonry. Then this circle off the ditch with a depth of 200 mm and a width of 300 mm, in which using a drill (e.g. garden) drill several holes to a depth of 600 mm. Obtained in this way form is filled with concrete to ground level, and have yet to complete setting, the solution lay first row of masonry.

Simultaneously with pouring the Foundation and laying the first ring set two pier under the canopy of the well, and cementing the masonry Foundation and cement mortar. After shvatyvanija concrete masonry continue. To give it the “old” look the solution is to add gravel and bury the mortar between the stones for 6 to 12 mm.

Assembly truss canopy partsAs already mentioned, the roof is going to pre-on the ground of 50×100 mm. the boards of the First rafters, one side is connected to the ridge and the lower longitudinal strap. Rafters the other hand is to strengthen, putting first Polubotko on the ground: as the angle between the rays 90°, the rafters of the second side is convenient for operation in a vertical position. The rafters of both slopes are fastened cross bars.

The dual connection of the rafters with a brace-strut canopyBefore you proceed to installing the roof frame on the supporting pillars, it is necessary in the upper parts of them to run the grooves for ridge beam. Four struts of the roof are connected with the supporting pillars in the spike, oblique grooves; with trusses they are fastened by bolts.

Before installing the roof to support the skids are prepared for casing, which consists of three layers. First, the lowest (sheathing) can be plywood Board or imposed directly on the rafters. This layer is laid roofing felt and on top of it — ceramic tile, modern metal-plastic tile or slate. End side of the roof can be covered with boards.
