How to equip a well in the country (56 images): types of designs and materials for finishing

Now being built summer houses of the unit containers and thanks to high-quality finishing of the buildings is not immediately possible to determine what they are made. The question is, is it possible to apply the design approach for mines outwardly unremarkable well? Of course, you can, most importantly to connect their imagination and choose the finishing materials properly!

In this article we look at how and with what materials is carried out arrangement of wells in the country. Of course, the decoration of the object can be entrusted to specialized organizations that will cope with this task quickly and efficiently. But, unfortunately, the price of the order will be high, and so do the job will be better than their own hands.

Utilitarian well design with the use of decking

Decorative figures in the design of country well

Methods and materials, allowing to issue well in the country, selected and applied in accordance with the type of water intake shaft.

Consider the examples of actual designs today.

  • Well in Russian style is a conventional utilitarian design with a minimum amount of decorative elements.

Traditional decoration of the well using of logs

Typically, the construction of the mine is a top, steering tree and stocked roof, wooden shingles or a nestled sheet metal.

As the decorative elements used carved ornaments or decorative painting paints. As the hoist is used with a manual gate drum for winding a chain or wire.

  • Shadoof - technically obsolete version of shaft arrangement of the water intake. However, this solution is more than attractive.

In the photo shadoof - a well with a crane

Mine is made using any of the available materials (wood, brick, stone, etc.). A distinctive feature of the construction is the lifting mechanism - Crane.

The mechanism is the beam fastened between two transverse struts. From one end of the inclined beam is mounted freely pole at the end of which, in turn, is fixed the bucket. On the reverse side of the beam is attached load, which will provide ease of lifting buckets full of mines.

Note: Due to the structural features of shadoof, install a complete roof will not be possible, therefore, to prevent debris falling into the water intake pit must be provided the use of a hinged or sliding wooden cover.

  • Arrangement of wells in the country in Eastern style represents a conventional design of the well shaft tip, and equipped with a manual winch drum on which is wound a chain or cable.

well decorated in oriental style

To give the construction of the oriental allow the roof, made in the form of a pagoda. In addition, it is possible to apply a decorative waterfall at the site where the remains of the water will be drained from the bucket.

Bucket, as well as all the trim, must be made of natural wood as the product of galvanized steel in the aesthetics of the East does not fit.

  • Decorative wells to give in the form of houses, mills and other miniature buildings are becoming more common.

Decorative small house for water intake shaft

The advantage of such designs is that the design element will cover the well head of the well from being hit by debris.

Important: All of the above solutions in varying degrees, have something in common with the design of a country holiday house.

After we looked at examples of how the design of the well in the country can be carried out, to determine the order by which materials can be made water intake shaft arrangement.

Making well ceramic brick

  • Ceramic brick - a versatile material, through which you can either oblitsevat already available headroom concrete or build entirely brick headroom mine.

An advantage of ceramic bricks is its high strength and resistance to mechanical stress. But we must bear in mind the high degree of hygroscopicity brickwork.

Ceramics absorbs water, and therefore tip surface to be coated with a hydrophobic finish. If this time does not make frequent contact with a brick water will lead to its rapid destruction.

Note: Given the considerable cost of a good ceramic bricks as an alternative you can apply lime analogue, especially since this material is now produced in different colors.

  • Ceramic tiles - a great solution for decorating tip nondescript concrete water intake shaft. Making a well in the country ceramic tiles characterized by ease of implementation of the planned work and the strength of the finished result.

First of all tiles, regardless of modification, is resistant to water, but because this finish will last a long time without having to be repaired. In order to maximize the stability of the ceramic lining to the effects of excessive humidity, as the suture is advisable to use a filler grout, diluted water glass.

Important: If your budget for finishing work is limited, instead of tiles, you can use tile fight that is worth many times cheaper, and from which you can lay out the mosaic.

  • Timber - a good solution for the decoration of the mine water intake in a rustic style.

Guide tip shaft tree decoration involves the use of logs or timber from which the carcass is laid out similarity angularly compound "paw". Also wood can be fully assembled roof.

For the use of sawn says their low cost and ease of machining. But there is a major drawback, namely, wood afraid of excess moisture. Therefore unusual lumber needed.

For example, for aspen furnish can be used, as this species decays to a lesser extent by long-term contact with water. Again, the wood can be impregnated with special means.

If a little money, such as non-lethal weapons can be used purified detention. If possible, cover the finished design layer of antiseptic, and after drying, apply several layers of lacquer.

EXAMPLE finish forged elements

  • Metal - this is a very good decoration material, unless you have the skills to handle it.

Finishing wells in the country using forged elements is not so popular, but with the right approach to the case of a metal rod can forge and weld framing water intake shaft passing through the gate and drum holders. Again, the metal can be assembled skeleton of the roof, which can be finished polycarbonate.

Of course, the metallic finish of the well to be further processed, e.g., covered with special paints which prevent rust.

Important: If the cottage is not electrified, then the metal may have some difficulties. To solve this problem will allow the purchase of a diesel generator or rental cottages.

Now that you know the manual selection and application of materials, you can decide what is suitable for the arrangement of the well on your summer cottage.

When the finish with your hands, you can use one of the previously mentioned design decisions. And you can not use ready-made solutions, and use your imagination and run finish in its own way.

  • Headroom operate in an open (base, and the roof rack) or closed form, such as "house". The open design sump column capped, in the "house" - a door on one of the roof ramps.
  • Allowed lighting throughout the area around the well and the building itself. Beautiful lights suspended from the roof construction and spotlights - the branches and bushes.

Attention! Near the wells is not recommended for planting of tall trees and shrubs with branched roots.

Felling natural file handle toned impregnation, giving the desired tone and providing protection against rot and beetles. Good looks carving or carved trim. Training decor is easily accomplished using a jigsaw on a cliche, and nail boards to the small nails. Old frame or concrete rings hide under wood veneer. Its pre-cut to size, planed and treated with antiseptic. Planks nailed to the frame, with the further coating with lacquer or varnish.

When selecting weaving is required to install the ground wooden pegs or pins of metal, is braided using flexible vines.

is the natural or artificial stone, facade tiles, mosaic, pebbles, broken ceramic tiles for finishing brick or monolithic structures.

Planted next to flowers and a bench, drum, braided fence stylized wagon and the mill site will emphasize the racy style. The upper house operate in a circular, tetrahedral or polyhedral performed using log. For walls serves cobblestone or brick planed board, gable roof crowned design. The upper part of the house can take the form of a tent. As a coating use natural solid, shingles, polycarbonate or straw.

Tip: for the design of all the buildings in the same vein, the roof of the well made in a similar performance, with respect to the design of the house.

To make the scenery functionality required to perform a series of steps:

  • Close the water tight lid, preventing debris from falling into the shaft providing protection from the sun's rays.
  • End brace composition with a chain and bucket used for other purposes when disconnecting electric power.
  • Original look of the structure with a lacy thread, woven mesh structure.
  • When planting climbing plants such as clematis, roses, ivy or vines, you can successfully complement the landscape design, turning it into a shaded sitting area.

Direction selection requires preparation stone in gray shades and the similar color of aged wood (logs or boards). At the base of the construction site construct, concreted or lined with natural stone. Beams and the roof is made of gray material. The resulting installation fits in well with the environment of bright colors, like a visitor from the past.

Swiss Chalet is associated with stone trim at the bottom of the well, and the predominance of natural file at the top. Decorating tip is made using a circular cobblestone, pouring concrete around. The roof is usually put directly on the head part, performing to the bucket door.

Oriental style is easily recognizable by the distinctive roof with curved edges, both in Japanese and Chinese homes. The basis for taking wood or stone.

Contemporary design execution will give the concrete mix, plastic or metal. Headroom is presented in the form of concrete figures for the development of the roof is colored plastic, and props to create a roof made of wrought metal.

Well shadoof suitable for homes in ethnic style, if there is a large open area, the scope of the crane arm -. 3-4 m The construction of the roof requires a lot of effort, so the center pole by hinges fixed cover plate.

Miniature house Laid of stone and covered with tiles bright, well it fits into the barbecue area where near the cooking place is recommended to be drinking water.

well decoration of concrete rings

Implementation of ideas begins with the preparation of materials:

  • cement-sand mixture - 4 buckets;
  • 0.5 liters of pastel paints;
  • Master OK;
  • brush;
  • a reservoir for mortar;
  • putty knife;
  • stones small fraction.

Making a well includes a number of stages:

  • Kneaded solution with his hands or with the mixer, it is uniformly applied over the concrete ring, keeping the same thickness of the layer.
  • Using a spatula aligned walls allow time for drying the solution.
  • Begin for formatting source. Its bottom trim 1/3 stone, pressing it with a small force in the cement-sand mixture. They decorate the inside of the flat natural stone.
  • The remaining portion (2/3 monolithic well) make out using a "brick" pattern: draw a sliver on a lightly The dried mixture bricks or rings, pressing the glass jar. Leave the track for a day, allowing you to get to grips pattern.

They are mounted on a brick, foam or aerated concrete surface. Prior to the beginning of the well casing natural stone is heavy, construction increase. On the surface of the armature is placed or a wire mesh, providing reliable fixation finishes. Installation is carried out by means of a concrete solution applied to the surface of the plaster according to the location. Works are carried out using two spatulas and construction level. The solution dries a few days, then it primed and placed natural stone.

For terrestrial use of the large boulders, joined with cement mortar. In order to facilitate the work using a wooden blind area (at the end of the work it is removed). Usually spread three-level basis. To create the first level are the large stones, which give the massiveness and ability to hold further construction.

Attention! When processing a brick base of the well, additional reinforcement is not provided.

Finishing source decorative stone has small labor costs, due to light weight structures:

Preparing the well to the surface finishing of stone

The basis for taking concrete or drywall. The latter option is mounted on the frame or not. Frame technology will further insulated sheet to insulate the well (e.g., foam). Prior to installation of the ground surface that will provide a high level of adhesion to the adhesive.

Application of subsequent layers is performed after complete drying of the previous ones. The mixture is applied manually or by machine. The first layer must match the name "perfuse", it is determined that the even and thin application.
  • Mashing. Work carried out on the semi-dry layer when the material is subjected to processing and has firmly secured to the cover. Special structure will help to give a special roller configuration, graters, stamps, brushes, plastic bags, leaves and feathers. Embossed shapes created by applying and holding them on the surface coating patterns. The layer thickness is determined by the desired effect.

Council. While the plaster is not dried up, squeezing her direct or broken grooves imitating brick / masonry.

Before applying the paint, primed, allowing the surface to stay longer. For work well using a waterproof paint that is resistant to mechanical damage and UV radiation. The process is carried out with a long nap roller, but monochromatic paint does not always give the desired effect, requiring shade extending relief. To secure ink is used for water-based varnish. It is diluted with water in proportions of 1: 1, which provides insight into the structure of the plaster.

  • House roof made of bamboo, straw or shingles.

  • In preparing for the upper trim rings are kindly requested to provide additional insulation arrangement. But many masters neglect this condition, if the water table below the ground frost level.
  • Decorative finishing creates external waterproofing layer. This rule is mandatory when working with brick and concrete rings.
  • When connected to the well of autonomous water supply system running from the pump, finishing work made upon placing the pipes in the ground and the installation is completed.
  • Budget type wells finishing plastering protrudes with waterglass and colorant. This will allow to give additional protection for finished appearance.
  • Regardless of the cladding thickness formed coating should not go beyond the limits of the blind area on the ground. In the opposite case it requires extension of the concrete mix or facing material.
