Re: Steel roof w/2 pitch + snow belt = problems?

Oh.. and the truss company just got back to me. Says to stay with the 4/12 pitch, just turned the other way.

Re: Steel roof w/2 pitch + snow belt = problems?

Great advice wizard. Will be sure to use that info.

It's called snow country but honestly, we really don't get much snow. Last winter excepted, 4 to 8" at a time and melting in between is...

Re: Steel roof w/2 pitch + snow belt = problems?

DT,
these were my original plan. But I'm really worried about the weight. Especially where the 2 different roofs will join.

This may be an option for the back side of the garage, where I'll...

Re: Steel roof w/2 pitch + snow belt = problems?

Thanks guys.. you're completely right and I just needed to hear it.
In the end, I think this worked in my favour anyway.

I've had some snow fall from the roof already and it's a major PIA to...

Seriously considering it.

Just not sure if it'll "look" ok?

Re: Heat loss from radiant slab

I asked the same question not a few minute from yours.. :beer:

I still haven't poured, so there's still time to make changes.
There's some much discussion about insulating and thermal break to...

Isolating slab from foundation - radiant heat

Someone must know?

It's obvious that we need insulation below the concrete, and also along the foundation walls (separating the slab from the foundation wall).

But how about in the door...

Re: picts of your in-floor heat set ups.

Wally, I think this IS the point.

Us "Joes" can use whatever we want to heat and it doesn't take a brain surgeon to come up with a temporary plan... and I hope we are also intelligent enough to...

Thank you Steve :beer:
This is what got me to post... I want to do it right, but I want to understand why also. The advice I got was from both sides, making it difficult to decide what to do.

Re: Radiant floor insulation - installing it right

Thanks Chris!
So I'm not losing my marbles :)

In my area, the soil is like nothing you've ever seen. It's all sand. I hit clay around 5' deep. In all the digging (30x40' of footing 4' deep and...

Re: Radiant floor insulation - installing it right

These images I 'borrowed' from the web may better explain what I'm trying to say?

Again, with insulation under the floor I don't understand the idea of insulating a frost wall to keep the earth...

Re: Radiant floor insulation - installing it right

With no insulation, this is the expected result. Mine will be insulated from the wall and the ground.

Re: Radiant floor insulation - installing it right

Thank wizard, but this is exactly my question:

"why would the ground under the slab be 10 degrees C?"

It's supposed to be insulated from the slab. In theory, the space above the floor should...

Re: Starting over... again. 30x40 shop build project = "Sutton Shop"

So walls and roof should be done by Sunday. Doors will be done by 2nd week of Nov. The building should be completely enclosed by then.

The floor, as mentioned will be poured next spring giving...

Re: Wanted - Advice on radiant heat install

Insulation ordered, expected next week. No one argued the quality of the materials I suggested, so I'm assuming all is OK.

The specs looked OK for my build, although I still don't get the...
