1. The house plans are drawn on the ground, marking the house drains. Then we start digging the channels for plumbing and pipe laying, which has a depth of 50 cm. It is covered by a reinforced iron mesh as per indication of the architect, and finished with a layer of concrete, leaving a flat and uniform floor.
2. Then the suspended floor is built: An air chamber that will insulate the house from the ground, making it totally airy and insulated from humidity. It is built using boxes of 40 cm covered with a mesh of iron, and then covered with a layer of concrete. Thus, the house is built at 50 cm. from the ground.
3. Structural panels are place according to the plans of the architect. These panels have a thickness of 14 cm. and act as structure of the house, replacing the pillar structure of traditional construction. All joints are reinforced with galvanized steel mesh. For the interior walls, 7 cm. thick panels are used and for the roof the panels are 20 cm. thick.
4. Once the frame is fully raised, all the panels are covered with a 4 cm. layer of micro-cement on both sides.
5. For the installation of electricity and plumbing, a hot air machine is used to make the grooves through which pipes and cables are passed.
6. As these materials are lighter than those used in the conventional construction, a porch may be up to 4.5 meters wide without the need of pillars.
7. Construction of flat roofs. Once the structure of the roof has been covered with a layer of micro-concrete, we have to make the roof with a slight slope for the evacuation of rain water. For that, the roof will have a drain to evacuate rainwater through the pipe that is totally soundproof and placed through the ceiling of the house, hidden from sight. The roof is covered with a waterproofing membrane and then checked for leaks. The floor of the roof will be finished with gravel.
8. Finishing of the roofs. All the installations for central air conditioning or heating, electricity and water connection are placed in the ceilings. We build a structure of galvanized iron that will serve to support the plaster boards that will form the ceilings. The standard height of the ceiling is of 2,75 m, but our clients can choose it and adapt it to their taste.
9. Finishing of the interior walls. All the interior walls of the house are covered with plaster board, allowing for a perfect finish with smooth paint. For this, we use a different type of plaster board than the one used for the ceilings. It is easy to handle and easy to repair, which is the advantage in case of breakdown.
10. The swimming pools are built by ourselves. We do not use subcontractors, so we can guarantee the quality and the completion times.
