Recent Progress -- July, 2010

Hi Folks,

It's been a long time since I was able to send an update since I lost my digital camera.

Here are a few photos and captions of recent work (from June & July) 

SE Corner Before Radiant Tubing

I've been using photos of this corner to show progress in stages on the project.  Here's a photo with foam insulation, but before the radiant tubing went in.

Bedroom Windows & Radiant Floor

After the vapor barrier and 3" of foam board insulation were installed, the PEX tubing for radiant floor heating was installed.  Closely spaced near the edges, where the heat loss is highest, but a low density overall, since we want the bedroom a little cooler than the rest of the house.  PEX tubing is stapled directly to the foam;  concrete slab will be poured atop this.

Linda Meets With Sam Clark

Linda meets with Sam Clark, who runs Sam Clark Design, a cabinet shop in Barre, VT.  Sam is the author of a few great books on designing and building small houses, and specializes in compact kitchen designs.  Sam Clark Design

The kitchen will be very simple, but carefully designed to get maximum utility out of a small space.  The cabinets will be fabricated in Sam's shop in Barre (about 30 miles away), and delivered in a few weeks for installation.  In the meanwhile, we need to get the plumbing roughed in, and figure out all the wiring, and pour the concrete floor...

Lots to do;  and now, more and more, the decisions need to be final (gulp!).
