http://www.lvshaolin.com/judo.php We recently added a new room to our studio! In this room, we built a custom made Judo floor. The judo floor is spring loaded with foam so that when you are training Judo your falls will not be as hard on the body. The foam absorbs the falling from the Judo throws. In this video we show our step by step process to building the best Judo floor around. Up above is a link to our Judo classes at the Las Vegas Kung Fu Academy.

A lot of builders are looking at spray foam for insulating 2x6 walls in their new home builds... Sure this might be great at increasing the walls R-VALUE but, overall it doesn't eliminate the thermal break created by the wood studs! Each stud is a thermal break where heat (or cold air, depending whether the house is being heated or cooled) is lost externally! The spray foam doesn't help the fact that the walls are still WOOD! Taking a look at an ICF wall system which creates two continuous layers of insulation with no breaks!! Add in thermal mass and monolithic concrete wall and nothing can compare.

In this design tutorial I'll show you how I develop and sketch floor plan ideas quickly. From diagram to rough sketch and on to more formalized plan layouts, you can follow along as I show you everything you need to draw a floor plan using one of our new residential projects as an example. I discuss in detail: - why you should start with diagrams (and not floor plans) - information you'll need before drawing - tools I use and recommend - tips for developing better ideas - form, space, and order (of course) - using grids - scale - and what I listen to when designing... metlhedz: what's the song at 3:03? be sure to let me know in the comments below. |m| // GEAR I USE // DRONE: *Mavic Pro by DJI: http://amzn.to/2hW3dTA DSLR CAMERA: * Canon 80D: http://amzn.to/2fBWGMQ LENSES: * Canon 24mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29l7ac5 * Canon 40mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29x2QcI * Canon 10 - 18mm f4.5 - 5.6 IS Lens: http://amzn.to/2vyErvS AUDIO: * Rode VideoMic Pro (hotshoe mtd.): http://amzn.to/29qlNM3 * ATR-2100 USB (dynamic mic): http://amzn.to/2dFDaKp ARCHITECTURE GEAR: * Prismacolor Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/markers * Timelapse Camera: http://thirtybyforty.com/brinno * AutoCAD LT: http://amzn.to/2dxjMDH * SketchUp PRO: http://amzn.to/2cRcojz * HP T120 Plotter: http://amzn.to/2dBGf1O * Adobe CC Photography (Photoshop/Lightroom) Plan: http://amzn.to/2dhq5ap STARTUP TOOLKIT: * Architect + Entrepreneur Startup Toolkit: http://thirtybyforty.com/SPL -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Inside My Sketchbook + An Architect's Sketching Tools" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8LBr6cZPuY -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

http://www.AsktheBuilder.com founder, Tim Carter, demonstrates how to slide closed-cell foam insulation in between floor joists. You want it snug, but not too snug. If you cut it too tight, it will cause the floor joists to get out of alignment. A table saw is an excellent tool to cut the foam to the perfect width. Small bits of foam will cover your body and clothes.

http://www.danielunedo.com/ Using painted galvanized steel structural insulated foam panels (SIPs), my awesome brother (the one wearing the hat) put together my 96 square meter (including the large verandah) house in 4 weekends. That's 1033 square feet. The building materials are all readily available and cheap, with the big expense being the concrete foundation that's needed to bolt the panels to. The panels are highly insulated and make for comfortable temperatures inside year round, saving up to 50% on energy costs compared to other building styles. I also chose a cool and breezy mountain-foot site to build. I have 3 solar photovoltaic panels and 2 wind generators for power, connected to a sinewave inverter. I was initially going to make a much smaller house, but quickly realised that the panels were so cheap that adding another room and a large verandah wouldn't increase the cost much at all. If I need more space in the future, I can close the verandah and turn it into another room. Because we didn't use a skeleton frame, the house has to be a bungalow. For multi-storey buildings, a steel skeleton frame is needed. Panels: €11,000 Foundation: €12,000 More information about SIPs here: http://www.eco-panels.com/ (I didn't use this US company as I'm European, but their website is informative)

The unit acts as both an air conditioner and heater producing very comfortable climate conditions year-round. With the high R-values and the energy efficient system the expected utility cost is roughly $50/month. Daiken heat pumps 10,000 BTU. These are commonly referred to as mini splits. Many types of insulation are possible from sheep’s wool, to fiberglass and in this example closed spray foam. The floor and roof are 2x6 24” on center with three inches of foam giving a R-21 value and the walls are a 2x4 24” on center with 2 inches of foam and R-13.

In this video I cover the basics of how to build a post and Pier foundation for a deck or a tiny home. I cover the importance of using a plumb bob when setting your post holes how to use a three four five squaring technique and the importance of using a laser level when building a foundation. Also I show you how and why we used rigid foam insulation in our floor. Mild Climate Footings for sheds and out buildings In mild winter climates (12" or less frost depth) and well drained non-clay soil, there is little chance of freezing soil lifting the footings and piers. In this case you can dig down into the soil and either pour a concrete footing or fill the footing hole with clean crushed rock. The size of this footing hole should be a 16" diameter circle or square for gravel or rocky soils and a 24" circle or square for soils with mostly loam, loose sand or gravel. The footing depth should be 1/2 the width or more. This foundation is used in the Little House Plans kit. Make sure the bottom of the footing rests on undisturbed soil free of organic material. Don't build on fill or soil that has been dumped on the site (unless it is incompressible material such as crushed rock). Your footings will spread out the total weight of the building over the bearing soil. Good solid material under these footings is essential. When in doubt, make the footings larger thus reducing the load per square foot (think snowshoes). Note: This is the most inexpensive and lightweight foundation option for a small building or shed. It would not be appropriate for a more expensive house. It should not be used in areas of high wind exposure or on steep sloping ground. Cold Climate Footings In colder climate areas or locations with expansive clay type soils you need the footing to be on soil that is below frost depth. Coming up from the footing will be either a pressure treated wood post or a concrete pier made out of mortared blocks or a poured concrete tube. Such a foundation will likely need to be engineered to meet your local requirements so these options are only suggestions. Block Piers You can also build your piers from 8 x 8 or 12 x 12 concrete blocks. For short piers use the smaller blocks, for taller ones go larger. Tube piers come in various diameters as well and larger ones should be used on the downhill side of a sloping site where they will stand higher. A safe rule of thumb is that a pier or post should not exceed 12 (for concrete) or 20 (wood) times its width in unsupported height. Confirm this with your building inspector or a local engineer. When using concrete blocks for your piers, the footings must all be level in order for the piers to be level under the beams. If you have to change footing levels they must be in the same increments to match the height of the blocks. With poured tubes you can cut them off level prior to filling so the footings can be at different levels. Check for level using a laser or an inexpensive water level made from clear tubing. Setting the Tops of the Piers Set the height of the piers so that there is a minimum of 12" under the beams and 16" under the floor joists of the floor platform. This will provide enough space for plumbing, wiring and insulation to be worked on from below. Provide cross bracing between the piers to provide additional lateral stability. Provide straps or other hardware to tie the walls, floor and foundation together for extra stiffness. Wood Post Foundation Piers When using wood posts get foundation grade 6x6 treated poles or posts. When using a gravel footing, nail a square of pressure treated 2x10 or 2x12 to the bottom to act as a foot. Use only hot dipped galvanized, "Z-max" or stainless steel nails and bolts with PT material. Don't rely only on the bolts to hold the beams. Set the beams on top of the wood posts and connect them with appropriate metal brackets or wood plates as shown. There are many different types of metal brackets and strap anchors. Ask locally at the lumber yard as these will vary by brand and the size of beam and post. A "Y" anchor that is nailed to both sides of the beam is sometimes more available than the Simpson hardware shown in the diagrams. Treated wood posts can be packed with crushed rock or soil cement made from 5 to 10 parts clean gravel and sand type soils (no organic material) to 1 part cement. Mix well and add only enough water to make workable. For longest service, the post holes should drain and not hold water against the posts. You can also extend service by painting the posts with asphalt roofing tar for 8" either side of the final soil line. This is where posts are most likely to experience organic attacks.

The block allows for faster, cheaper, more precise, and stronger building than is available through traditional building methods. Bricks are designed to be easily joined together, with open internal spaces for insulation and infrastructure elements to be run through the bricks and allow for easy access to these elements. Floors, walls, and ceilings are all constructed by appropriate bricks to allow for facile, solid construction with little mess and significantly reduced construction costs.

The ZEGO Internal insulation is also a service duct for plumbing, electrical and data services. These services are installed off the critical path. Chase foam after concrete is cured and there is no structural damage as you don't cut the concrete, saddle plumbing pipes to concrete and foam in electrical conduits and it does not effect the FRL or STC of the wall system. Budget and schedule your plasterboard as normal Plasterboard is fixed with cornice cement at 300mm centres to the dovetail grooves of the ZEGO. NOTE: NO SCREW holes to set and sand just your vertical joints with a setting box for additional speed and ease and for a better paint finish. In bathrooms apply acrylic waterproof straight onto the ZEGO foam and use acrylic tile adhesive to fix the tiles. NOTE: Developers and Builders don't need Greenboard or villaboard to all ZEGO walls in bathrooms, ensuites and laundry of every single unit in their development which saves time and money bringing progress claims and handover forward and onto your next project earlier.

I had to draw out the shop house one last time to get precise measurements on lumber and joists. I will use these drawings to build from. We will start framing very soon and I want to know that everything has been taken into consideration. I tried to place as many windows as I could utilizing the natural light but also take into consideration aesthetics. I can't wait! https://www.facebook.com/RPRIdaho/ Instagram: @redpoppyranch https://www.pinterest.com/redpoppyranch/ Contact: Redpoppyranch98@gmail.com Video about Lifevantage products and the science behind them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bs8ecK_Z2z0 Link to these products: http://redpoppyranch.lifevantage.com/ Music: http://www.epidemicsound.com/

Take a few moments with our southern California BuildBlock Distributor and learn his strategies for stacking ICF walls and getting the most out of BuildBlock ICFs. Remember, as the walls are stacked they are reinforced with steel rebar. After they are completely stacked, they are filled with concrete and the blocks stay in place providing insulation. Finish the interior with drywall, plaster or other finish, and the exterior with siding, stucco, EIFS, brick, rock, or stone. Visit http://buildblock.com for more information.

Originally broadcast October 25, 2013 Canadians are installing spray foam insulation in their homes in ever-expanding numbers. It’s sold as energy-efficient, easy-to-apply solution, but when the job goes wrong, it can be a nightmare for homeowners. Tom Harrington takes you inside the walls and up into the attic to explore a home renovation horror story, a foul-smelling foam job that’s driven a family from its home.
