When we removed the lattice from the sides of the house we were in awe of the amount of over-cantilevering, if that word is allowed, and piers that did nothing.  Needless to say, we got in and leveled this North Pole home so it is ready sale.

Drains, supply lines, glycol lines, and electrical coming down.  All this will sit behind a chase and soffit which we will install in the finish phase.

Toyostove OM-128 Hydronic Heater and in floor heating/ radiant installation (Part One)

 

 In Fairbanks, Alaska, home heating has become a focal point of modern design with heating fuel costs so high. Radiant floor heating has become the standard in most modern homes because of its relative efficiency to other applications but also becasue of general comfort levels. There are various hydronic heaters on the market but here in Fairbanks, Alaska, the most commonly used is the Toyostove OM-128 Oil Miser.

Our friends at Monkeywrench Mechanical, one of Fairbanks best plumbing companies, are doing the heating install.

Once the kitchen cabinets are layed out, the in floor tubing will be installed just before the gypcrete or concrete floor is poured.

Check back in a few weeks to see the pour!

Fall projects for Straight Ahead Construction (Part 2)

Last week we got the addition post and pads on this gravel pad over permafrost built and after setting 48 hours we set beams and floor joists. This week was short because we went hunting after drying the place in.  We got electrical, cook stove vent re-routed, propane gas line re-routed, insulation, and vapor barrier.

The sheetrockers showed up on Saturday and started hanging. Should be a few more days before electrical trim and blowing in the roof.

Friday we did the vapor barrier and steel roofing for this Fairbanks, Alaska home living room and two bedroom addition.

We picked back up with this Fairbanks, Alaska log home this week. Monkey Wrench Mechanical is our trusted plumbing subcontractor and they roughed in the vents, drains, and supply lines.  IMG_1608

The mechanical room is going in as we speak. Hopefully we will be heating this place in a few weeks to start moving in and finish it up.
