Carnation Walling - Internal Wall Bracing Etc
Internal walls are handled a bit differently as there is no EPS to glue.
Can straight away fit vertical batons on both sides of the wall./p>
Fit them every 6 feet at primary locations. This is enough to support the ceiling beams but is still wide enough apart to allow the plywood to be fitted later.
Use 1/2" conduit spacers that are 9.5" long.
Sometimes in the structural house design it is necessary to provide more support than a short length of regular wall can provide. I use 2 foot x 1 foot rectangular columns in two places in the basement. These are formed using sawmill sawn lumber. At the base it uses a short length of key notch in the slab.
To make the rectangles of wood, use a jig as shown below.
The lumber used is 5" wide (for consistency).
Pile up the rectangles to the required height to form a column. Note you will need to later do some disassembly of the rectangles to fit the rebar.
It is useful in some places eg the porticos to implement a mezzanine floor. This can provide some rain shelter but it is also useful to hold the walls the right distance apart.
Put wood planks between the horizontal bracing. The length of the planks needs to be accurate and exactly as per your CAD drawings.
Over the planked area add some 6mil polyethylene and then some orthogonal wood planks on to to hold it down.
Internal divider walls
The story so far
At this stage you should have the entire house outline (the outer edge of what will be wall concrete) done in exactly vertical 2x4 batons spaced 2foot apart (with variations at the center of wall sections) with angled bracing about every 6 feet. The internal vertical 2x4 batons are all exactly the same height and they have threaded rod at many strategic locations ready to accept the EPS.
