Weekend

I have a busy weekend planned, filled with packing, cleaning, football, Oktoberfest, and other odds and ends. Now that the weather is trying to get cool enought to open windows (sadly we only had 1 week of that), I am doing some "fall cleaning", changing air filters, and decor for the new season.

  • What are you packing? Moving or vacation?

  • Of course when it comes to timber building – there is always the question of fire-safety, but CLT is vastly different from stick-frame wood construction. Mass timber is significantly more difficult to ignite and once it catches fire it begins to char, causing it to burn at a slow predictable rate. Believe it or not, engineered timber laminated wood like this can outperform structural steel in a fire. In one test, a glulam beam was pitted against a steel beam in a fire. The steel failed after 30 minutes, while the timber remained straight and true, retaining 70% of its structural integrity.
