The final parts of the framing with wrapping up in our lower level today. As well, we started the furring under the hollow core concrete panels.
Furring the Ceiling
The 5/8-inch Redwood tongue and groove material must be fastened to the hollow core concrete panels so we need 2×4 furring to be attached to the hollow core concrete panels. Since the hollow core concrete panels have a slight camber, the 2×4 furring strips need to be shimmed so they are level. We are attaching the pressure-treated furring with GRK Caliburn screws, or equivalent.
Scott Andersen’s Design in Panama
Our good friend, Scott Andersen, has been working with an architect in Panama to design a house. As background, Scott worked with us on the conceptual design for our house and he has over 20 years of designing contempory homes in Toronto, Canada. The rendering of the house shows plenty of concrete, glass and steel, with an infinity edge pool and spectacular views. Definitely an ‘adult’ house.
The question is, ‘How fast can this house be built?’ with the follow on question, ‘Will the house in Panama be completed before our house in completed?’.
