Ok, we’ve hard about OSB. I’ve experienced the stuff going to oatmeal consistency when hept soggy.

Brick suck.
No, really, what the fuck. I lived in stick house before, and now I had moved to brick house. What the fuck, during summer it is fucking too hot, AC can't keep up (I bought system thinking that brick has same thermal insulation as fucking 10 cm of fiberglass insulation and drywall). During winter (mild winter, rarely gets below 0C/32F), AC and oil heater can't keep up with heating the shit.
I ended up installing thin sheet metal studs, thin (2,5 cm thick, 1 inch i guess) styrofoam insulation (because I don't like fiberglass, it required PPE to work), and drywall. Now I can use AC only to heat up the house (thank got I had some slack in copper lines for AC).
Also, this is reason why people in cold places used wood to build fucking houses.

Also, brick is shit for earthquakes (and bombs), unless you add rebars, which means you're better with concrete box, which would have way better thermal insulation.

Not me, someone who had designed that house, and who though that one layer of bricks would be a good insulation. 14 cm thick wall, and apparently reinforced with rebar, because I hit that shit twice when I was hanging TV first time. Brick obviously has cavities, but they don't help a fuck.

There's your fucking problem, Anon. Cavity wall is a must with brick built houses, and don't forget the damp proof course.
>>
>>1660583
Cavity wall is a meme. Literally 1 inch of Styrofoam insulation and drywall would fix the shit.
Brick is a shitty building material. Only reason why Europoors were using is because clay was cheaper than wood, and they had sun to dry the shit. People from frozen shitholes were using brick only to build a fireplace.
Wood is better, because it is a better heat insulator, and allows for 10 cm (4 inches) of insulation inside outside walls.
Metal studs are better, because they allow thick insulation, and it is much easier to deal with than wood or brick.
Concrete is better, because it is stronger than brick.

This. OSB gets rained on during construction and it doesn't hurt it. It needs to be in constant contact with water for prolonged periods for it to start fucking it up. And that is usually caused by improper siding/flashing installation, not a flaw with the material itself. If all the exterior finishes are installed properly, a house built with studs and OSB sheathing can last a hundred years. It just gets a bad reputation because mass produced homes are build using bargain bin labor that can't do shit right.
>>
>>1660305
euro's, you realise that when Americans do use brick, they still build their houses out of sticks, but then tie brick to it for decoration.
so from the american perspective of being retarded he is right
>>
Brick has shit for lateral stability, it's only strong under a vertical load. It's why in the US you can't build a house using a single layer of brick for the exterior walls, it doesn't pass structural code. If you want a brick exterior it has to be done as a veneer over either a wood frame structure or a masonry block structure.
>>
The only reason europoors care so much about brick vs stone is that they had to rebuild twice now because of American bombs lol.

brick is better material.

but america has lots of managed forest farms + canada, which makes wood products cost essentially nothing (although "brands" still make americans pay through the nose for it)

also america doesn't have a history, so the idea of a building, let alone your house lasting for hundreds of years is anathema to them.
houses are just another consumer product in America. houses are not their "castle" like europe.
they have paper walls and guns instead.

Unless you're building it yourself on the cheap, the point of getting a mortgage instead of renting is that idea you can pass it on to your children in some sort of usable state.

Buying instead of renting is so that you accrue equity, then if/when you sell you can get the money out that you've paid in.

I don't think so.
There are more wooden frame or poured concrete, than brick ones.
Also metal frame houses are sort of popular.

Because earthquake spics were smart enough to add rebars to equation. And in many cases pored concrete box around it. Or steel beams in bigger older buildings.

What really pisses me off in your chilean brick house is its thermal insulation and its thermal capacity.
It is not that cold outside now (I can wear shorts), but fucking first floor (which is brick) is a frozen shithole.
In summer it is the opposite, it is cold outside, but unbearably hot inside.
Second floor is metal frame construction, and it is like 8-10 cm thick, including siding... Shit never gets that hot, nor that cold. Even with that thin 5 cm fiber glass insulation.

Not sure what that guy is on about, if the foam boards are thick enough the heat flow rate through the walls becomes negliable regardless of the building materials.

>>1664748
You don't really need base isolation for 1-3 storie building.
You either need rebars in brick, or/and concrete beams around bricks. I'm EE, not architect, so I don't know details.
I mean, it is possible to make earthquake proof brick buildings. But it is only viable if brick is cheaper than concrete and you have cheap working force. This is why you will never see brick house in Japan (earthquake chinks), but you will see a lot of them in Chile (earthquake spics). Which are pretty old, which means they don't collapse.
>fire hazard
Not every type of brick is fire resistant. In most cases you would need to rebuild the wall, which is a fucking challenge.
Thing is, metal beams, brick, concrete don't burn, but all loose their strength when heated.

Maybe, I don't live in Santiago, but in Valpo, where you have more diversity when it comes to building material. Still, they are not your typical Europoor brick. They have some sort of weird concrete box around them etc.
>Al these houses where built when Santiago had a real mediterranean climate, but now Santiago its more desertic than ever.
Interesting. Why?
>Also, nobody has intention of insulate here. Its too costly and wages here are shit as fuck. And nobody knows how to do insulation jobs properly anyways.
Well, when it comes to Metalcon and similar wood stick shit, you have no option but insulate. Even that shitty 2-5 cm fiber glass insulation is enough to keep nicer temperatures inside.
Electricity is expensive. Insulation would pay for itself in no time. Sure, you can burn wood, or kerosene... But wood burning thing would be expensive, and kerosene smells horribly.
I think for your climate mini split AC is perfect heater. I installed one, and now I have +22 C inside, while spending same amount of electricity.

BTW, Pro for brick.
You can easily hang 30 kilo box on it, without worrying about anything. Try that with metal frame or wood.

Not an argument whatsoever, just admit that you don't know what you're talking about, it's pretty much the standard way of building in all of western-europe nowadays where they have one of the strictest building regulations in the world.
>Not every type of brick is fire resistant. In most cases you would need to rebuild the wall, which is a fucking challenge.
There's this fun little experiment you can do even at home! thrown a brick in a fire, and a piece of OSB, see one of the two will last the longest!
Or what about an 800 year old cathedral on fire built when they still didn't know what they were doing. Guess what parts were undamaged, it weren't the wooden constructions.
Try to do the experiment where you submerge the two in water for a couple of days, to simulate a leaking pipe, see which one comes out the best.

>Or what about an 800 year old cathedral on fire built when they still didn't know what they were doing.

Yes, just admit that 99.9% of brick houses that are already built have piss poor insulation, compared to 99.9% of wooden houses.
>western-europe nowadays where they have one of the strictest building regulations in the world.
Oh, look, we made finally insulation standards in 1980-90... While US had those strict heat insulation standards for years. While Russia had proper insulation standards for years. While Finland was building proper insulated house for years. Know why? Because in -20 C heating is expensive, and you need it, because you would die without it. Because in +100 F air conditioning is expensive.
In your westen europe, it rarely gets below -5 C. No big deal having shitty insulation there.

And speaking of insulation, you need at least 10 cm of fiber glass in Russian climate.
That is a really thick wall you got there, with 2 layers of brick. Thicker wall - less area.
With SIP panels, you can reduce it to 7-8 cm, and in case of fire you just rebuild the shit, since it is dirt cheap.

SIP panels are the future. They need to find a way of attaching steel sheets and drywall to Styrofoam.

You don't know what you're talking about. Cavity walls were pretty much standard early 20th century and the vast majority of buildings were built after WWII so i really don't get where you're getting this from.
>Oh, look, we made finally insulation standards in 1980-90... While US had those blah blah blah..
Still no arguments here. There's literally nothing that prevents you to build a highly insulated masonry house and it's done all the time now. And most efforts for olders houses for better insulation usually go to the roof that's ironically a wooden structure.
And using Russia as an example to support your case, how desperate are you? They regulate the temperatures in their commieblocks by opening their windows in -40° weather because the local power plant doesn't give a fuck how hot it gets in your room.

Also, the east coast of the US which is also the oldest and one of the colder regions has plenty of masonry buildings, it's literally a non-argument.

This is what was happening with brick, when it was getting hit with water, and got soaked really bad. I had hard time killing fucking mold. Tons of bleach and detergent was wasted.
With siding/drywall/fiber glass insulation/metal frame, I would just replaced affected area, since it is literally held by 20-30 screws. It would be much faster and easier, than trying to kill mold inside of brick pores.
>They regulate the temperatures in their commieblocks by opening their windows in -40° weather because the local power plant doesn't give a fuck how hot it gets in your room.
See, really good insulation.
Do you know why they are giving so much heat? Brick commie blocks always don't get enough heat, despite cavity wall and shit.

Oldest SIP panel buildings are at least 30 years old now, still working. Huh.

Why don't we use vacuum for insulation?

>cavity with rock wool

are you dutch? Here we use external wool and plaster it, layer of aeratedTerraTM bricks is the same but our aeratedTerraTM bricks are much wider and we frame the whole thing with RC, do you have issues with stability of cavity walls or mold build up on rock wool?

Is the design of a neo-cavity wall with rock wool different than old school cavity wall with freeflowing air?

well shit, we use at least 10cm of external rock wool or styro, its an overbuilt thermal wise, what are SIP panels?

as if OSB wasnt toxic enough, you do a double and ad extra toxic foam between

>>1664934
also, that brick wall is terribly unstable since it isnt top loaded (=expect cracks soon), its low built so it can pass but I know that you build taller facade brick walls that way. very dangerous and such a waste of nice masonry. many such cased. not housepilled!

Huh. OK.
It is often done as retrofit in Russia for brick houses (usually after owners see their gas bill).
>and still can survive a serious wind unlike a chep o croatian shitshack with CHAD REINFORCED CONCRETE
Maybe, idk.

>>1665141
for the same reason we don't use vacuum balloons

Nope. Florida houses have to be built by either cinderblock or concrete on the first level after 2015 for some reason

many commie block apartments do the same thing here and it works quite well, I just took a few pictures of a retrofit process of a commie apartment, I should upload it, its either styrofoam or rock wool, but always external

No idea m8, i posted >>1664731 because some uneducated twat kept rambling about the inherent insulation issues that come with brick even though that's a flat out lie, no idea what the details are about the particular example i posted.

hilarious that the yurop vs usa house materials argument never involves japan, who have the same practises: cheap materials, meant to be replaced. of course based nips can do no wrong because everyone likes jacking off to their cartoon girls

You never heard of the stereotype of Japanese houses having paper walls? Fucking Honda designed a car that young couples could use to shag in. That was the only way they'd have some privacy.

Nothing wrong with using engineered local materials.

This, solid brick, added insulation on the insidr though. Shit is /comfy/ af. House literally survived German invasion, Market Garden and 1945

Prolly because most Amerikanen don't live on reclaimed swamps.
