Building the Nudura Frost wall

galmay-097.jpggalmay-098.jpggalmay2-003.jpgSee how nicely the Nudura walls go up. We chose them for their insulating value and ease of installation.  As recommended by the geotechnical engineers, there are two reinforcing steel bars in each 18″ level.  The doorways require special detailing to ensure that we don’t have any exposed foundation in our final concrete floor, and to ensure a thermal break between the floor and the walls.  Allan was full of good ideas on how to do this detailing.  Putting the walls up went very quickly, but the detailing took time.  When we’re done, everything is level to within 1/4 inch!  Allan says, “Margaret, I think these are the sweetest walls we’ve done!”
