Photos of Windows and Interiors

In case you missed the recent open house, I snapped a few pics of the exterior and interior of the 120K House yesterday. The exterior looks pretty ominous wrapped in black felt paper with the black windows installed.

Back Day 53

While the exterior looks cool, the interior is really impressive at this stage. The exposed OSB from the inside of the SIPs is still exposed along with the OSB in the TJI floor and roof joists. We’ve had a number of people ask if we could actually leave the OSB exposed as is. I certainly wouldn’t mind, but that requires a bit more planning and could be a bit risky from a sales side. It’s definitely on the list of future plans though.

If you want to see all of the pictures taken head on over to our Postgreen Flickr account and check them out. I tried to enter thorough descriptions of where the interior shots were taken and your welcome to leave comments as always. If you’ve taken any photos yourself of the homes during a visit feel free to add them to our very sparce 100K House Group on Flickr or simply tag them with “100khouse” in your own account.

If you enjoyed reading this post I can promise you'll love our new writing over at Postgreen Homes. Yeah, we know that's the same thing your favorite band said and their new album is nowhere near as good as their early stuff, but seriously, we are actually still getting better.

There also isn't much conversation to be had here . . . at least not with us. So come on over to the Postgreen Homes Blog and tell us what you think of our new(ish) digs and crazy ideas. We will be sure to tell you what we think of your opinion.

I’m definitely considering keeping some OSB exposed. I actually prefer it to drywall. The place looks great.

Thanks. Send us some pics of that interior OSB if you do it.

OSB does not offer the same fire protection as drywall. I believe that the interior OSB on almost all SIPS must be covered in a fire-protective material.

Also, the neighbors wall looks like an excellent opportunity to hang some art. Maybe a large steel sculpture of some kind. It does not look great as it is.

What product line of Jeld-Wen windows did you use? I probably missed something, but the last I remember you were planning on going with Pella’s Proline.

5 chad December 19, 2008 at 1:11 pm

We ended up going with the Jeld-Wen builder grade in black.

Same performance as the step up, but cheaper. Both black and desert sand (medium gray) look like decent colors for modern homes.

I’m not sure what patio doors we got, but the hardware has to go on those. It’s nasty traditional. I remember being warned about this. Come on Jeld-Wen. Get with the 21st or even 20th century!

100k Team, Congratulations on the progess to date !
What type of cladding are you putting on the exterior of the houses ?

8 chad December 22, 2008 at 3:41 pm

Damon – Good eye. I wish our budget would allow windows to span the two stories of the house. Structurally, it’s a pain…

Clint – Some type of fiber-cement. James Hardie siding most likely or possibly Certainteed.

Before you cover up the OSB try color staining a few areas. I think green stained OSB would make for a very relaxed forest like space.

Even if you cover it up you will have pics for future reference.

Ok, so there’s a problem: Jeld-Wen is headed up by a fascist who gives ooodles of money to a guy out here in Oregon named Bill Sizemore, who runs deep-right-wing initiatives (anti-union, anti-worker, anti-planning, anti-building-codes, you name it) for a living. Sizemore is a parasite who plays the initiative game for this guy and a nutjob rich guy, Loren Parks, who left Oregon for Nevada but continues to fund Sizemore’s little scam operation (which recently landed him a brief trip to jail because of his contempt of court). Google “Bill Sizemore” and find out what your dollars are supporting when you use those windows.

11 chad January 2, 2009 at 2:36 pm

George – Thanks for the heads up and concern. At this point, I don’t think we can afford to eliminate every material whose CEO’s we don’t approve of though. I’m not a big fan of most corporate fat cats, so we might eliminate most all of our materials if we went that route…

If it’s any solace, we are looking to use widows from Serious Materials on future projects if budget permits. I think their upper management is a bit more upright than the average company.

Hey Chad, quick question. I spoke with a window rep. at Home Depot yesterday about Jeld-Wen’s builders clad and he said the interior pine is paint grade but not stain grade. We are thinking that we’d like to keep our window interiors natural wood and not paint them. He suggested that the quality of Jeld-Wen’s interior pine (for this line) is so irregular and inconsistent that we would be forced to paint over them. Have you found that to be true or are you happy with the quality and consistency of the interior wood on your windows? Thanks!

13 chad January 5, 2009 at 3:36 pm

Susan – I honestly haven’t looked too closely but would agree that they are not stain grade. I am happy with them as we are planning a drywall return and will be painting what’s showing of the interior pine.

If you go up a notch or two in the Jeld-Wen you may find a better interior quality with minimal price increase. Your local building supply store where the contractors shop may be a good place to inquire also. Sometimes they have good local brands that Home Depot wouldn’t carry…

And here I was set on the Pellas for my own house project, piggybacking on your research, and you go and mix it up on me and go with Jen-Welds! :)

I guess I’d better look into those as well. How big of a cost savings (percentage-wise) were the Jen-Welds vs. the Pellas?

15 Chris January 12, 2009 at 5:45 pm

Oops, I mean Jeld-Wens…

16 Jordan January 20, 2009 at 4:19 pm

Hello Chad. I was curious about the use of felt paper over other types of building wraps. I am assuming since you are using SIP’s, you aren’t too concerned with air infiltration and more with allowing the wall to dry. Was this part of the reason and/or were there other concerns?

17 chad January 20, 2009 at 4:45 pm

Jordan – Felt paper was recommended by multiple SIP manufacturers and publications as the best product to cover SIPs. We are also going to implement a rainscreen application to allow moisture that does penetrate the siding to drain and dry out. Also, this will block heat and promote circulation in the summer to keep the homes a bit cooler.

18 Kris December 4, 2010 at 8:13 pm

I am going to agree with Chad on the choice of the tried and true felt paper. Our architect insisted we use that versus the “fancy” house wraps as it has been shown to allow the house to breath better. Congrats on going with rainscreen, a very wise choice that we will hopefully be seeing on more houses. It really improves the durability of the siding and framework for the house.
