Ground floor floorboards are placed on the cement base.
Floors can be finished with tiles, stone plates or any other material and with any combination of different materials.
Timber beams are used in between floors, which are the same type of timber used on the walls. These are placed intermittently every 400mm – 600mm. These timber beams thereby become an innate part of the structure as their ends “lock into” the walls. Below these timber supports an underlay is placed (which forms the ceiling) together with a special membrane, which can accommodate the insulation materials. This is then covered with floorboards.
Alternatively the horizontal timber beams can remain exposed for aesthetic reasons.
