Completed Homework

Hey folks,

Just a short update.  I finally got around to creating some more time lapse videos of the construction.  I was shocked to see that I was over a year behind.  I think this shows just how crazy 2017 was for me.

At the site, I have now finished the rough-in installation of the HRV ducts.  My consultant was very happy with what he saw, so now I will disassemble the system so that I can seal all seams and gores prior to re-assembly.  I will be targeting zero leakage from the system once installed so that air will get to where it is intended to go in the most efficient way manner possible.

With the ducting laid out for the top floor, I was able to build the final interior walls on the top floor to create the closets between the 4 bedrooms.  These walls were left till last because they hide the vertical risers for the HRV air supplies to the bedrooms.

HRV risers nicely tuck into the walls between the bedroom back to back closets

I also have some promising leads on a solution to my engineered exterior envelope requirement.  I do not want to jinx it so will share details after it is resolved.

Thanks for visiting.
