The small round gray cylinder is the hot water tank that is heating in the in-floor hydronic system. The basement is 3,000 sq. ft., structural mat slab foundation that is thermally broken on all 5 sides with a 1 ft. thick layer of Dow Blueboard
The second floor above the Garage is part of the condition space of the main house when modeled in the PHPP. We will review modeling protocols for the project at a later date.
Dow Blue Board High Strength makes up our 1 foot thick insulation Layer below the structural mat slab of the garage Geothermal system (2 black pipes on the left side of the photo) has been filled with 40% food grade glycol. The geothermal system supplies the garage hydronic system to heat the slab to 50 […]
Structural Mat Slab 1) The structural mat slab has a broomed finish which functions as a walk off space for dirt from shoes and an anti-slip finish. 2) The structural mat slab has a 3 inch fall toward the garage doors to drain the garage to the outside. 3) Exhaust side of the earth tube […]
