Basement framed

Posted Mon, 08/10/2009 - 21:33 by kpbadger

The basement walls and ceiling are now framed.

As promised, engineered wood "I" joists are used for the floors. This gains a point for item D.21 on the green built checklist.

There has also been work on the geothermal system. On Friday, a trench had been dug to the wells.

Today, the wells have been connected, and the piping run under the (future) basement floor. This avoids the need to run (and super-insulate) the pipes across the ceiling.
