Prefabricated Housing in Nepal

Prefabricated Housing

The word ‘prefab’ is not an industry term like modular home, manufactured home, panelized home or site-built home. The term is an amalgamation of panelized and modular building systems, and can mean either one. In today’s usage the term ‘prefab’ is more closely related to the style of home, usually modernist, rather than to a particular method of home construction.

Prefabricated homes, often referred to as prefab homes or simply prefabs, are specialist dwelling types of prefabricated building, which are manufactured off-site in advance, usually in standard sections that can be easily shipped and assembled. Some current prefab home designs include architectural details inspired by postmodernism or futurist architecture.

5 Types of Houses

1. Mansion Houses

A mansion is a large dwelling house. The word itself derives through Old French from the Latin word mansio “dwelling”, an abstract noun derived from the verb manere “to dwell”. The English word “manse” originally defined a property large enough for the parish priest to maintain himself, but a mansion is no longer self-sustaining in this way. ‘Manor’ comes from the same root territorial holdings granted to a lord who would remain there hence it is easy to see how the word ‘Mansion’ came to have its meaning.

 

2. Bungalow Houses

A bungalow is a type of building, originally from Bengal region in India, but now found throughout the world. Across the world, the meaning of the word bungalow varies. Common features of many bungalows include verandas and being low-rise. In Australia, the California bungalow was popular after the First World War. In North America and the United Kingdom a bungalow today is a residential building, normally detached, which is either single-story or has a second story built into a sloping roof, usually with dormer windows and one and a half stories.

3. Apartment Houses

An apartment or a flat  is a self-contained housing unit  that occupies only part of a building, correctly, on a single level without a stair. Such a building may be called an apartment building, apartment complex, apartment house, Flat complex, block of flats, tower block, high-rise or, occasionally mansion block, especially if it consists of many apartments for rent. In Scotland it is called a block of flats or, if it’s a traditional sandstone building, a tenement, which has a pejorative connotation elsewhere. Apartments may be owned by an owner/occupier, by leasehold tenure or rented by tenants.

 

4. Cottage Houses

A cottage is, typically, a small house. It may carry the connotation of being an old or old-fashioned building. In modern usage, a cottage is usually a modest, often cosy dwelling, typically in a rural or semi-rural location.

 

5. Dogtrot Houses

The dogtrot, also known as a breezeway house, dog-run, or possum-trot, is a style of house that was common throughout the Southeastern United States during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Some theories place its origins in the southern Appalachian Mountains. Some scholars believe the style developed in the post-Revolution frontiers of Kentucky and Tennessee. Others note its presence in the low country of the Carolinas from an early period. The main style point was a large breezeway through the center of the house to cool occupants in the hot southern climate.

Windows and Doors Designs

Windows

A window is an opening in a wall, door, roof or vehicle that allows the passage of light and, if not closed or sealed, air and sound.Modern windows are usually glazed or covered in some other transparent or translucent material. Windows are held in place by frames. Many glazed windows may be opened, to allow ventilation, or closed, to exclude inclement weather. Windows often have a latch or similar mechanism to lock the window shut. some of the windows are shown below;

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Door

A door is a moving structure used to block off, and allow access to, an entrance to or within an enclosed space, such as a building or vehicle. Doors normally consist of a panel that swings on hinges on the edge, but there are also doors that slide or spin inside of a space. Similar exterior structures to doors are called gates. some of the Doors are shown below;

Major Step To Build Modern House

1. Foundation

When beginning a construction project, it is important to take great care in properly setting up the foundation. The success of the project, whether it is a large house or small tool shed, relies heavily on the care and effort that has been put into the site preparation and layout. While the techniques described in this article can be employed to some extent on any scale project, they are tailored to the small to mid scale home project.

2. Framing house 

Framing, is the fitting together of pieces to give a structure support and shape. Framing materials are usually wood, engineered wood, or structural steel. Building framing is divided into two broad categories, heavy-frame construction (heavy framing) if the vertical supports are few and heavy such as in timber framing, pole building framing, or steel framing or many and smaller called light frame construction  including balloon, platform and light steel framing.

  • light frame

  • light steel framing

WALL

Wall framing in house construction includes the vertical and horizontal members of exterior walls and interior partitions, both of bearing walls and non-bearing walls. These stick members, referred to as studs, wall plates and lintels , serve as a nailing base for all covering material and support the upper floor platforms, which provide the lateral strength along a wall.

3. Roof

A roof is part of a building envelope. It is the covering on the uppermost part of a building or shelter which provides protection from animals and weather, notably rain or snow, but also heat, wind and sunlight. The word also denotes the framing or structure which supports that covering.

4. Installation of Rough Plumbing Electrical and HVAC

rough plumbing: Once the shell is finished, siding and roofing can be installed. At the same time, the electrical and plumbing contractors start running pipes and wires through the interior walls, ceilings and floors. Sewer lines and vents, as well as water supply lines for each fixture, are installed. Bathtubs and one-piece shower/tub units are put in place at this point because there’s more room to maneuver large, heavy objects.

electrical: After the roofing goes on, the house is considered “dried in.” The electrician then installs receptacles for outlets, lights and switches and runs wires from the breaker panel to each receptacle. Wiring for telephones, cable TV and music systems is included in this work.

HVAC (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning): Ductwork is installed for the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system, and possibly the furnace. HVAC vent pipes are installed through the roof, and insulation is installed in the floors, walls and ceilings.

5.Complete  Drywall And Interior Textures And Start Exterior Finishes

Drywall is hung and taped so the seams between the boards aren’t visible, and drywall texturing is completed. The primer coat of paint is also applied after taping is complete. Contractors begin installing exterior finishes such as brick, stucco, stone and siding.

5. Finish Interior Trim And Install Exterior Driveways

Interior doors, baseboards, door casings, window sills, moldings, stair balusters and other decorative trim are installed, along with cabinets, vanities and fireplace mantels and surrounds. Walls get a finish coat of paint and are wallpapered where applicable.

Generally, exterior driveways, walkways and patios are formed at this stage. Many builders prefer to wait until the end of the project before pouring the driveway because heavy equipment  can damage concrete. But some builders pour the driveway as soon as the foundation is completed so that when homeowners visit the construction site, they won’t get their shoes muddy.

7. Finish mechanical trims and install bathroom fixtures

Light fixtures, outlets and switches are installed and the electrical panel is completed. HVAC equipment is installed and registers completed. Sinks, toilets and faucets are put in place.   Mirrors, shower doors and carpeting are installed, and final cleanup takes place. Trees, shrubs and grass are planted and other exterior landscaping completed. Finally home Is Ready.
