Passive Skew Update

Did you know we are building a Passive house?

A lot has happened since April.

April saw the completion of the assembling of the SIPs.

Now if you thinking of wow, that was fast! That’s the beauty of SIPs. However, there is still a lot to do.

First, we need to wrap house in its weatherproofing and add the battons to the roof, so the plumbing for the roof can get completed at a later date.

The weatherproofing was vital before the expected cold and wet conditions of winter on the horizon.

Before we could get the roof plumbing done, we needed to build the veranda (as it’s all streamlined).

On the days when it was too cold, wet, or miserable to work on the outside, there was plenty of work to be done on the inside.

Internal walls went up in June.

What’s that black tap I hear you ask?

It seals all the seams and makes it airtight. Which is vital in the construction of a passive home.

Flash forward to July the triple-glazed windows that we ordered pre-pandemic were installed.

Just look at that light!

In the meantime, the roof plumbing got done (not the spouting, that will come later), and the installation of the stairs so we can get to the loft.

Before you ask we have no idea when our move-in date will be.

There is still a lot to do, but we are getting there.
