Did you know that there are many types of foundations, other than those requiring excavation and concrete pouring? A technology that is simpler and more resistant to temperature variations than any other material?
Indeed, there is another alternative to the traditional concrete foundation. Building the foundation of cottage on screw piles could be very advantageous according to several criteria:
In order to show you the available possibilities, here is an example of the construction of a “Maisons Bonneville”, a medium-sized house, and entirely built on screw pile foundations.
It took the intervention of just one person, Stéphane Bergeron our expert franchisee from Pieux Vistech Haute-Yamaska, with his mini excavator. The result is a stable and solid foundation installed in just one day. This allowed the construction of this project to begin quickly.
The number of piles depends on the size of the project of course, and to give you an idea of the simplicity of the project for this type of construction, here are 2 figures:
The flat ground and the type of semi-sandy soil could have allowed a formwork or a concrete slab. However, the owners opted for the installation of screw piles.
So imagine building your future home wherever you want, regardless of the slope, the type of soil, on the water’s edge … or in the forest!
That’s what Bonneville Homes in the Nature Series style allow you to do. Projects designed to be built in wooded areas, or elsewhere. Combined with foundations made with screw pile technology of Postech, these projects have several advantages:
This product is therefore a real ally!
And you, do you have a project to build your house in the forest?
