“ Reshoring” BSCI 2300 Final Project Spring 2009 Mrs. Linda Ruth
Air Barrier paper <ul><li>Air barrier paper is a continuous polyolefin membrane under the siding that controls air and water penetration. It is permeable to water vapor, but not to liquid water or air. </li></ul>
Attic Ventilation <ul><li>Promotes air movement that evaporates any moisture that condenses in the roof space and prevents heat during the summer. </li></ul>
Backhoe <ul><li>A piece of excavating equipment that consists of a digging bucket on the end of an extending arm. The bucket can vary in size depending on the job needed. This bucket measures 4’ across and is being used to dig a ditch. </li></ul>
Batter Boards <ul><li>Made of wood (typically) these boards are nailed together in correlation with plumb bobs to show a building’s outline. </li></ul><ul><li>Establish the building’s outline, staying 4’ away from estimated dimension to allow for excavation. </li></ul>
Wood Shingle <ul><li>Wood shingle - small unit of wood nailed in overlapping fashion to render a wall water tight. </li></ul><ul><li>Wood shake – Shingle split from a block of wood </li></ul>
Code requirements 24 inches from finished floor Passes code
Code requirements <ul><li>Stairs </li></ul>Sorry for the crappy picture, used my phone Riser: 7 ¾” Tread: 11” Nosing: ¾” Survey says: This staircase checks out
Concrete joints <ul><li>LOL FAIL </li></ul><ul><li>Control joints – an intentional discontinuity used to control cracks caused by shrinkage of concrete during curation. </li></ul><ul><li>Isolation Joint </li></ul><ul><li>Completely isolate the slab from another piece or object, normally a column </li></ul>
Concrete Masonry Unit (CMU) <ul><li>Three courses = One course </li></ul><ul><li>4” CMU </li></ul><ul><li>12” CMU </li></ul>A block of hardened concrete designed to be laid in the same way as brick. CMU’s are normally hollow to allow further reinforcing through holes in the middle. They come in varying sizes from 4” Iin depth, to 12” in depth.
Front End Loader <ul><li>An earthmoving machine with a hydraulic scoop in front for lifting and loading earth or rubble with the ability to travel across site. </li></ul>
Gypsum Board <ul><li>An interior facing panel consisting of a gypsum core sandwiched between paper faces. Gypsum is very resistant to fire. </li></ul>
Heat Pump <ul><li>Compressor – pulls air in from outdoors and pumps into the air handling unit </li></ul><ul><li>Air Handling Unit – Sends air through vents to heat/cool house </li></ul>An advantage is it’s ability to rapidly heat or cool house. A disadvantage is that it is noisy.
I nsulation a material of low thermal conductivity placed to slow heat loss or gain from outside. Also helps with sound control. <ul><li>Fiberglass Batts </li></ul><ul><li>Cellulose Loose-fill </li></ul>
Lintel <ul><li>A piece of metal or concrete that transfers the load above windows or doors to the surrounding walls. </li></ul>
Mortar <ul><li>Concave </li></ul><ul><li>Type S mortar for parking deck, 3/8” tooled joint </li></ul>
Mortar <ul><li>Flush </li></ul><ul><li>Type N mortar for a retaining wall, 3/8” tooled joint </li></ul>
OSB <ul><li>Home Depot was on the lookout, so I had to be sneaky. </li></ul><ul><li>OSB is a non veneered wood product that is manufactured by orienting strands in perpendicular layers followed by random end layers, glued together, and put under immense pressure which give OSB it’s strength. </li></ul>
Plywood <ul><li>Plywood is manufactured by literally unrolling a tree by it’s layers. The tree is then sliced into different size pieces, cured, and sold. </li></ul>
Radiant Barrier <ul><li>NO PICTURE! WHERE THE ****? I KNOW I PUT IT IN HERE! No, wait a minute, I couldn’t find this one… </li></ul>
Rebar <ul><li>This is ½” rebar and would therefore be referred to as #4 rebar. </li></ul><ul><li>The purpose for the deformations in the surface of the rebar is so that it adheres to the concrete surrounding it. </li></ul>
Steep Roof Drainage Gutter - A trough fixed under or along the eaves for draining rainwater from a roof. Down spout - a vertical pipe used to drain rainwater from a roof
Steep Roof Drainage <ul><li>Splash block - A pad placed under the lower end of a downspout to divert the water from the downspout away from the building and to avoid erosion directly below downspout. </li></ul>
Steep Roof Materials <ul><li>Shingle underlayment – creates a waterproof barrier between sheathing and shingles that protects against backed up or wind driven rain under shingles and into the house. </li></ul>
Steep Roof Materials <ul><li>Shingle - A thin oblong piece of material, such as wood or slate, that is laid in overlapping rows to cover the roof or sides of a house or other building. It protects against water penetration. </li></ul><ul><li>Copper shingles were used in the construction of this steeple. </li></ul>
Steep Roof Materials <ul><li>Metal decking for roofs normally consist of Aluminum and Tin. </li></ul>
Steep Roof Terms <ul><li>Ridge - the point where the rafters meet. </li></ul><ul><li>Valley - The place of meeting of two slopes of a roof, which have their plates running in different directions. </li></ul>
Steep Roof Terms Eave – projecting overhang Rake - The inclined edge of a sloped roof over a wall.
Steep Roof Terms Fascia - A flat, horizontal board enclosing the overhang under the eave
Soffit <ul><li>Cover the eave of a roofing system. </li></ul>
Steep Roof Terms <ul><li>Roof without Fascia </li></ul>
Stone <ul><li>Random Rubble </li></ul><ul><li>Coursed Ashlars </li></ul>
Vapor Retarder <ul><li>A layer of moisture resistant material usually which controls moisture diffusion to prevent moisture build up in the walls. Normally put on the cold in winter side of the wall. </li></ul>
WaterProofing NO! Not again!!!!!!! Why? Why? WHY??? WHY???? WHY????? I hate this part. -1 point
Welded Wire Fabric (WWF) <ul><li>Welded Wire Fabric reinforce the concrete to prevent cracking. </li></ul><ul><li>This particular piece is roughly 16’ by 8’. </li></ul>
Windows <ul><li>This is an inward swinging hopper window because it has its hinges on the bottom and swings in but doesn’t allow water in. </li></ul><ul><li>This is a double hung window, because both panes (top and bottom) are free to slide up and down. </li></ul>
Windows <ul><li>This is an out swinging awning window because the hinges are on top of the window to allow it to swing outward over an awning. </li></ul>
Thanks, hopefully this will get enough bonus points to avoid an embarrassing B…
