Thanks @foursevenfivedotcom for sharing our recent #prefabhouse ! Posted @withrepost • @foursevenfivedotcom This is a rare project spotlight that hits every nail on the head. This project was built in cottage country, Haliburton, Ontario. The home was designed for retired living. The high performance design called for super insulated floors, walls and roof. @simple.life.homes was up to the task and managed to eliminate foam even from the foundation. Using a variation of our I-Joist Smart Enclosure details, they carefully designed and built the pieces in their pre-fab shop and finished the building in a way that is prepared for a low-carbon, resilient future. We’re very proud to get to work with this firm and see their work continue to advance and grow.⠀
The prefab parts here were assembled piece by piece off-site. First, the structural 2x6 wall came together. The INTELLO Plus interior airtightness layer + smart vapor retarder was applied to what became the outboard side of the interior studs. A few more details: Window and door penetrations were boxed out and taped with TESCON VANA (along with the seams of the INTELLO Plus), a thick layer of wood fiber board insulation was screwed into the studs as the next layer, the exterior layer was implemented by wrapping the whole thing with SOLITEX MENTO 1000, the seams and penetrations were sealed again with TESCON VANA, and finally sills were covered with EXTOSEAL ENCORS. Next, a rain screen was created by first screwing 1x3 vertical strapping to the face of SOLITEX MENTO 1000, to the TJIs, then applying 1x4 horizontal strapping atop that. After wrapping up, the brightly labeled walls were ready to move to site! ⠀

All that's left is to cut the fiberglass rods and you're done 👌 Kudos to @evoconeng for the spectacular board-form job and @arrow_sales_1 for capturing the project in progress!
Sukut’s participation at ASC Regions 6 and 7 was a huge success! We were well represented and prepared to meet 50+ students at the 2019 Associated Schools of Construction competition. These students are considered top-notch. We have already invited eight students for an interview and several others are considered for the future. Our team continues to find talent at this event and will definitely participate next year! Read more about this event: link in bio
Most construction in North America is happening in Toronto. Everywhere you look there's cranes!! Very exciting time!! I like to call it a baby New York.
Where there's that much construction, there's plenty of opportunity. Don't settle for a job until you're truly happy and that job turns into a career.
