ThermoSeal 2000 closed cell insulation is applied as a liquid spray which expands approximately 15 times its initial mass and cures within seconds into a semi-rigid mass. Fills all building cavities completely sealing all cracks, crevices, and voids where air loss and infiltration are most common. It is designed to make homes more energy efficient, stronger, healthier, quieter and more comfortable.

After we poured the concrete, blankets were put over the foundation walls to keep the warmth in and to allow the concrete to cure in the cold weather. Once the concrete had cured, the blankets and forms were removed and straw was put around the exterior foundation and blankets were put on the interior ground next to the foundation. This was done so that the ground doesn’t freeze and we will be able to do the underground and slab plumbing work.

Since the houses are so close in Chicago, we had a settlement surveyor come out to set up control points on the neighbors house. These control points will be measured again after the foundation has been back filled to show that there was no settlement of the buildings next to the construction site. We then we used steel beams to shore the banks. The shoring (steel beams) supports the dirt so that it doesn’t collapse into the newly excavated foundation. Once the shoring has been installed, the excavation can be done without having to worry about the banks collapsing.

The owners have decided to have their home deconstructed instead of demolished. Deconstruction is the process of taking down the house in the reverse order of how it was built and then donating the building materials to charities like Habitat for Humanity. Deconstruction is done by hand instead of using heavy equipment to preserve the materials. The cost is a higher than having the house demolished, but there are tax deductions for the donations that help offset the higher costs.
