You are all invited to a project I am completing on my farm at 3124 Holly Street in Frederick, CO (corner of Aggregate and Holly) on Monday, May 15, from 1 to 3PM.
We’ll be inspecting a building I built that has plenty of unusual features that you won’t normally find on your average inspection. It’s good to see rare issues, systems, and components. The building is designed (by me) to look like a normal stable/barn on the outside. But it is actually quite unusual. It has:
Steel posts and beams.
A chase for a large dumbwaiter.
480V, 208V, and 3-phase electrical systems.
Cementitious exterior siding including commercial exterior drywall.
No conventional lumber. All LVL, LSL, and engineered floor joists.
No OSB, all 3/4" plywood.
Entire building on 28 foot-deep caissons to bedrock to account for local expansive soils.
Staircase hung with cantilevered landings to account for local expansive soils.
Custom-designed overhead horse stall doors.
An 8 foot-diameter open atrium to third floor.
Custom-made Steel handrails and guardrails.
A steel mezzanine with forklift gates.
Closed-cell spray foam insulation.
Cantilevered steel balconies.
Commercial metal roofing.
A live closed-cell insulation demo will be taking place. Nick Gromicko, one of our engineers, and one of our welders will all be on hand to answer questions.
Everyone on the roof should be waring personal fall arrest systems and tied off within >< feet of their work station. As well, a guardrail systems would be required in my neck of the woods.
Not worth loosing everything you worked hard for cutting safety corners.
