Radiance and Superinsulation.

Over the past week and a half a push has been made to get above ground and complete the footings and foundational slabs (that have radiant heating pipes in them).  On Friday we poured the final footing wall and are ready to begin framing of the walls, fabrication of windows, and start landscaping with earthbags!  Lots to look forward to over the next month.  Here are a few quick pics from Friday, but will direct you to read the slightly over the top detailed entry on our side-blog @ this link:


Well, until next time check out this speech by E.F. Schumacher on the Wholeness of Life!!  Legendary material.  PEACE!


This is a cross section of the slab that will be under the laundry room.  You can see the 100mm thick Goldfoam on the bottom and the hook ups for the washing machine. that will be enclosed in a wall.  To learn more about the radiant heat aspect please view the side blog via the first link above (aka not the Schumacher one) or on the links area on the far right hand side of the page.

 These are the shutters for the front footing.  Calipers where used to clamp to the existing C.M.U. wall and the top of the pour was slightly angled to the outside to prevent water from pooling or making it under the door somehow.  More soon!
