By the time I left in the afternoon, they had completed the cupola and a section of the main part of the roof. Several people on the J.P. Hunter crew were installing shingles on the main house.
Chris Mensch's crew from Coastal Management were busy on the south side of the pool house installing the horizontal cedar boards that will enclose the piling area underneath the structure.
Flanders has also started to install the project's Zehnder ComfoAir 550 ERV system, by running individual ComfoTube flexible air distribution pipes from the ERV unit to each room that will be served by it.
The interior space is starting to shape up. Here we can see:
- Blue FortiCel on the exterior framing and sheathing
- Open cell spray foam insulation in the roof, which will receive an "ignition barrier" in the attic and will be covered by CertainTeed AirRenew gypsum in the living space and cathedral ceilings of the bedrooms below
- ComfoTube piping leading from the ERV to each of the bathrooms and bedrooms on the second floor of the house
As 2014 comes to a close, we thank the terrific crews who have helped Sunset Green Home take shape this year. We've come a long way since March, when Details, a division of non-profit Humanim, "deconstructed" (click here to watch the video) the home that Sunset Green Home replaces, and which was made uninhabitable by Hurricane Sandy two years ago.
