Water Resistant Barriers Matter!

ZIP System is a structural wall and roof system that includes an integrated air and water-resistive barrier. ZIP System R-sheathing is an all-in-one structural panel that includes built-in exterior insulation, moisture, air, and thermal protection.

Definitely on living space, an option on the shop/garage.

Barndominium 101:

Steel Embed Plates are used to attach concrete structures to steel framework.

The plates are made to set into the concrete foundation and act as an anchor for steel columns.

Also called Concrete Embeds, Anchor Plates or Weld Plates - they are a vital component in barndominium construction and the best way to connect steel to concrete.

After several calls today, it is necessary to post this a second time…

Ask before you buy!

1. USE - (Covenants & Restrictions) Can you use the land to build a steel frame home?
2. ACCESS - What are the access points or established easements?
3. UTILITIES - Can you confirm the status and location of electricity, sewage and water?
4. SURVEY - is there a recent survey that removes guessing as to the location of lot boundaries?
5. LEASES - Are there any existing tenants or leases?
6. CONVEYANCES - What land improvements convey with the land?
7. TAXES - Are there any tax exemptions on the land?
8. HOA - Is there a Home Owners Association?
9. NEIGHBORS - Are there neighbors? Even though it may be quite rural, it’s a good idea to see what the closest neighbors are up to.
10. DESIRABILITY - Would this property be desirable for future buyers? (Expected appreciation, nearby properties, market time, activities…)

In the world of design/build, everything revolves around square footage…and you see how quickly the square footage adds up.

A wise person once said, “The best writing is re-writing.”

Re-write to get it right.

Life is a series of learning moments. We hope you never learn about these two items the hard way…

Foam closure strips are essential for maintaining the weather-tight seal of a metal roofing system and preventing leaks and damage.

They provide additional insulation, moisture resistance, noise reduction, and improved durability. Furthermore, they help keep out pests and minimize the amount of light entering your structure.

Outside closure strips fill the gaps across the ridge line of a panel roof, while inside closure strips fill gaps along the eaves or edges of the roof.
