Suzie's Home

WE Raised Suzie's Home in Mid-January 2010

Suzie's timberframe is FSC certified (sustainably Harvested) Kiln-Dried Doug Fir from Washington. It presented some exciting challenges: three different Valley systems, three hip systems, large spans requiring Larson Truss Ridges, and a complete wraparound porch that made the panel job a bear. It went together seemlessly although the 4 feet of snow we had to contend with slowed things down a bit . . . The panels are a combination of 8" compressed straw from Agriboard industries and 11 1/4" Core Sips from our old standby, Enercept. With the active and passive solar this house will be green and efficient indeed.
