Rustic House Constructions
For the construction of a rustic-style house, an adequate selection of construction materials is necessary. The most used are adobe, wood, and stone. Also, Sky Marketing will tell you how to combine them with modern materials taking into account safety and style. Let us begin.
Earthquake-resistant Rustic Construction
The facade looks like a typical house with a rustic finish with adobe, stone, and wood but uses a better construction system to make it earthquake resistant. In the following plane, we will see the foundation with inclined footings and stone masonry.
Footings with Cement and Sand Mortar
To support the upper walls of the windows and doors, the placement of transverse wooden beams has been chosen. It provides good weight support and fits in with the aesthetics of rural housing.
Predominance of Adobe and Wood
The interior temperature of the house is cool during the day and warm at night, thanks to the adobe's ability to absorb heat. Let's see inside:
Stone plinths are integrated with the foundation
For greater resistance to the simple rustic house, the designers have found it convenient to implement masonry footings (stone) mixed with concrete (cement and sand in a 1:4 ratio).

Although the house has adobe walls, both the foundation and the columns make it resistant to earthquakes. Below are the graphics with the construction details:
