INSULATION UNDER CONCRETE SLAB
MASS WALLS ON FIRST FLOOR
Upon this new clean sand, the foundation was installed as a “slab on grade”, foregoing a traditional Minnesota basement, but included first-floor concrete walls around the central guest bath creating a first-floor storm shelter as well as a central mass wall temperature control center. The foundation walls and the concrete slab were insulated. Heating and cooling air ducts were laid directly on the slab under areas of raised floors, which accommodated the ductwork and created visual interest in the flow and function of the house. These methods gave the otherwise cold slab warmth in the winter and mass to create comfortable temperatures within the house in the summer.
Humidity & Fresh Air Control
Now the family enjoys a healthy environment that is an updated and better version of the beloved home that had to be torn down. The best of that home was recreated in the new house with all the homeowners loved and all they desired, creating the most supportive environment they could image. Happy families are the best reward for the hard work it takes to build new.
