    Oh, that's not what I was imagining, at all. I thought the modularized walls were finished with windows, siding and possibly even drywall. I think that company called Landmark does this, somehow.
    Still awesome, just that something from earlier made me think it was different.

    What goes in between the floors, and the earth beneath? Is this area insulated or just sealed off somehow?

    Neat project.

    Neat project.
    There goes an L shaped frost shield insulation, and then treated plywood to cover up the gap. Think some BlueSkin goes around that after the fact...but not too sure. They delivered BlueSkin stuff, so I am pretty sure it's going to go around the foundation insulation to seal the gap.

    Went out there early this morning to take a look at what was done yesterday, and looks like they are installing 3X LVL beams sandwiched together, plus a few pieces of insulation, to make up the 8" wall thickness. These go around the entire perimeter and support the whole roof structure above, and transfer the load to the screw piles. Kind of neat, didn't know about this detail of the build.

    They also reframed the two small vertical windows to their proper height. Someone at the factory screwed up.


    LVL all around:
