United vStates Patent ffice BUmD'ING SHEET CONSTRUCTION ov'a J. collings, Kansas city, M0.

Application April 5, 1954, Serial No. 420,866

This invention relates to building construction and, more particularly, to an improved article of manufacture in the nature of a building sheet adapted for use in combination with other sheets `of like construction to present improved side walls, sub-floors, sub-roofs or the like.

The primary objects of this invention are to provide such improved building sheets and such improved walls, sub-floors, sub-roofs and the like formed of inexpensive materials which may be prefabricated for easy and quick assembly at the place of construction.

Another important object of this invention is to provide building sheets including main bodies of wood having tongues and grooves and coverings of waterproof material adapted to cooperate with the tongues and grooves and with adjacent sheets, when used in a wall or the like, to render the entire construction rigid and watertight.

Other important objects of this invention, including the important details of construction which it involves, will be clear or become apparent from the accompanying drawing and the following description of the invention as the latter progresses. In the drawing:

Figure 1 is a fragmentary view, partially in perspective -and partially in section, illustrating a number of building sheets as contemplated by this invention, disposed in combination to present a side wall or the like;

Fig. 2 is an elevational view of one of the building sheets per se, with parts being brokenaway for clarity of illustration;

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary cross sectional view taken on vune III- 1n of Fig. 1; and

Fig. 4 is a fragmentary cross sectional view taken on line IV-IV of Fig. 1.

Referring rst to Fig. 2, the numeral generally indicates a building sheet made in accordance with this invention. Sheet 10 includes a rectangular plate 12 of wood, preferably plywood, having a tongue 14 of trapezoidal cross section extending from one longitudinal edge 16 thereof and a tongue 18 of trapezoidal cross section extending from one end edge 20 thereof. Formed within the other longitudinal edge 22 of plate 12 is a groove 24 of trapezoidal cross section, and formed within the other end edge 26 of plate 12 is a similar groove 28 of trapezoidal cross section, grooves 24 and 28 being of cross sectional contour substantially complementary to that of tongues 14 and 18 for receiving the tongues 14 and 18 of the plate 12 of another sheet 10.

Adhesively mounted upon one lateral face of plate 12, by any suitable adhesive or cementitious material 29 is a rectangular piece 30 of 'waterproof material, preferably tar-paper or the equivalent, piece 30, as will be clear from Fig. 2, extends beyond tongue 14 as at 32, beyond tongue 18 as at 34, beyond edge 22 as at 36, and beyond edge 26 as at 38, elongated extending po rtions 36 and 38 being preferably of somewhat greater width than extending portions 32 and 34.

In forming a wall or the like 40 from a plurality of sheets 10 the latter are preferably arranged as illustrated inFigs. l, 3 and 4, and fastened in place by nails or the forming a part of the rframework of the structure upo'n which wall 40 is to be installed. As shown in Fig.V l,

the various sheets 10, which it may be noted may be of any suitable size but preferably may be formed with a length of six feet and a width of four feet, are arranged in successive rows with the sheets of alternate rows staggered or offset from each other in the manner in which sheets 10 and'10 are offset relative to sheets 10 and 10"' in Fig. l. Adjacent edges of all sections 10 are forced toward a mutually abutting relationship with the tongues 14 and 18 of one received within the adjacent corresponding grooves 24 and 28 of another.

As is best illustrated in Fig. 3, the extended portion 32 of waterproof piece 30 on each sheet 10 is bent partially around tongue 14 of such sheet 10 and is preferably interconnected therewith by any suitable mastic or adhesive material 46. Each tongue 14 and portion 32 lare then thrust within and received by groove 24 of an overlying sheet 10 and are interconnected with the latter by mastic or adhesive 46 to provide a seal between the two adjacent sheets 1'0. When in such relationship, it will be noted that portion 36 of the overlying sheet 10 overlaps the underlying sheet 1t) and Vthe Zone of juncture between the sheets to provide delecting means against the elements.

As best shown in Fig. 4, laterally adjacent sheets 10 are similarly interconnected with the portion 34 and the tongue 18 of one section 10 extending into the groove 28 of the adjacent section 10 and all interconnected as above described, by a quantity of mastic 46. In such disposition, it will be noted that portion 38 of section 10 presenting the grooved partv of the joint overlaps the section 10 presenting the tongued portion of the joint and may preferably be held in such overlapped condition either by nails 42, as illustrated in Fig. 4, or by a quantity of the mastic 46. v

It will be clear that when a plurality of sheets 10 are positioned in mutually abutting relationship and interconnected as above described with each sheet 10 being suitably fastened to Stringer 44 or the like, a watertight wall 40 of improved rigidity and sealing properties is presented for use as a base over which roofing, siding, flooring or other finishing materials may be easily and advantageously applied.

It will also be apparent that certain minor modifications in some details of construction of the structure above described as illustrating this invention could be made without departing from the true spirit or intention thereof. Accordingly, therefore, it is desired to be limited only by the scope of the appended claims.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new and desired to be secured by Letters Patent is:
