The location is one of the important points to consider are ripe before you buy or build a dwelling. Each location is chosen, whether it’s in the middle of the city or in the corner of the city, of course, have different treatment in development as well as residential care.
Residential building at the edge of the sea for example. The beauty of the seascape make most people dream of having the residence by the sea. In contrast to the residence in the city center, enjoy views of the sea brings you seeming closer to nature, while creating a soothing relaxation.
Unfortunately, there are some conditions that require you to give special treatment in buildings in order to be durable and not easily damaged. The specified conditions such as sea breeze brings salt so that it can accelerate the onset of corrosion, the scarce availability of fresh water, tides, coastal erosion and many more. Therefore, take note of the following before you decide to build a residence on the edge of the sea.
The Condition Of The Land
The first thing to note is the condition of the land around. Make sure your chosen land for building are not prone to erosion and strong enough to withstand the load of building on it. If soil conditions are not too hard, then you can use any kind of Foundation of the chicken claw.
Be sure to level the ground to be built are higher than sea level. So at the time of high tide, the House was not flooded. Then consider the foundations of power. Each building requires a depth of the Foundation depends on the load of the building itself as well as the condition of the soil. You can do a test sondir to know the depth of the soil and the soil stratification.
Choice Of Material
Availability of materials as well as materials became the Foundation of the next important point that must be noted. For the coastal region, the abundance availability of rocks can be an alternative base material Foundation.
While to avoid material damage due to sea breeze brings salt, can use the material concrete precast or iron wood material (ulin wood) that are resistant to water. We recommend that you avoid the use of steel or iron materials are susceptible to rust.
Make The Most Of The Openings
In order to maximize the ocean views from inside the House, then make the openings-wide openings in the form of door or window glass. Don’t forget to install blinds or shading to keep out the searing rays of the Sun during the day, so as to minimize the use of AC in the house.
