Hello everyone! Here are a few more pics. Notice how the mini-split condensing unit will sit on the roof stand. Ben brought his mini (its the same model we are getting) to the site today and used it as a template. Good thing he did. It helped us trouble shoot potential problems. Also, new drain in third floor porch. Hey no one said construction was pretty. I am experimenting with colors. this blue is on the fence for a test. I am 50/50 on it. I might go darker. the actual living area will be a very light blue. I thank all of you who are helping for your efforts. -Tom
Here are more pics of the construction. We are working on the roof penetrations: AC stands, vent stacks, water line and electric receptacle, solar line feed chase. The garage doors are going in. Notice all the steel scraps we had left over from the structural support now being recycled into an important part of the house. Nothing has gone to waste in this construction. My amazing welder John Andrews came up with the roofs made from corten
steel scrap. He made them in minutes. Just one of the small miracles that will make this house come to life.
We have relocated to a slightly more spacious spot:
4011 NW 43rd ST, STE-B, Gainesville, FL 32606
…behind Solantic at 39th Ave and 43rd Street. We share space with Mandese White Construction.
Fence is constructed using sections of container wall panel salvaged from the construction of the house and also from additional parts of salvaged containers. Panels are dropped into a trench, held straight with temporary battens and stays. The trenches will be filled with concrete. The top of the panel fence will be aligned using angle steel. Check out the recycled container porch door.
