Home Project . . .

There has been a great deal of progress made on our current home project.   A lot of concrete work has taken place.  Some photos are posted below for your viewing.

Notice the basement walls are complete on the photo above.  The concrete is being poured over the PEX, being cautious to not crush the tubing.  Below are a couple more photos of the concrete pours.  There has been a lot of framing taking place too, but photos aren’t yet available.  Walls have been framed and rafters have been set.  The goal is to have all of the rafters set and braced by today’s end.  We’ll see if this happens!  🙂  The weather has been extremely hot this week for the guys.

The Pex Tubing is layed so that it all comes back to one main area - the mechanical area of the home, where it will eventually be connected with the home's HVAC system.

Concrete poured in office portion of building . . .

Monday morning McGruder and his crew poured the concrete floor for the office portion of the building.  Some photos are shown below.  A conveyor was used for the concrete.  Thursday a large portion of the shop floor will be poured.  Things are coming together!

Office Concrete Prep . . .

Some pics showing Friday’s progress.  The PEX Tubing for the under floor heat and the steel reinforcing is completely installed in the office area. McGruder’s crew is prepping their screed for the concrete pour on Monday.  2″ Greyflex Styrofoam Insulation is installed on the ground with the PEX tubing and steel reinforcing on top.  Concrete is then poured and screeded with this embedded.  It looks like a maze.  🙂

March Madness – Progress . . .

March has been a busy month in the progress of the Nill Construction, Inc. office/shop building.  Roof panels were installed, along with windows, OH doors, and exterior metal trims.

45


The interior of the building was spray foam insulated.

1210The benefits to using Spray Foam Insulation in a metal building are in it’s ability to seal air leaks and provide insulation in some hard to reach areas.  Closed cell spray foam insulation also provides an excellent vapor barrier and a high R-Value per inch of product.


Plumbing rough-in and PEX tubing are being installed, along with foam board insulation.  The concrete floor will be poured next week.

13Having swung a backhoe for a number of years,  I assisted our plumber by helping with the excavation today.

15We’re almost ready for concrete!  Progress is being made!

Week 2 of February – a different type of framing taking place . . .

Week 2 of February brought a different type of framing to the Nill Construction, Inc. Office/Shop Building — Wood Framing instead of Metal Framing.

The front of this particular building will consist of wood framing with exterior finishes of Stacked Stone, EIFS and Grey Metal Panels.  Present drawings include a somewhat eclectic front canopy entrance.  You can see this in the revised rendering shared below.

Windows are ordered.  Overhead Doors are ordered.  The roof panels will be installed as soon as we have a 2-3 day stretch of warmer temps.  Soon after the roof panels are installed, we will begin heating the ground of the office portion of the building so that plumbing can be roughed-in and concrete can be poured.  Winter construction always adds additional labor and cost to a project.  We have to take full advantage of every warm day we’re blessed with and take extra steps in the building process because of the cold freezing temps.

Nill Construction, Inc. is an authorized dealer of American Steel Buildings and also Midland OH Doors.  If you’re in the market for a steel building or need an overhead door, give us a call at 701-252-6077 or visit our website for more information. http://www.nillconstruction.com.

Nill Construction, Inc. New Office/Shop Building – Wall Panels being installed . . .

IMG_1015Little by little, progress is being made on our office/shop building.  Wall panels have been started.  Three days were spent installing bracing, plumbing walls and tightening bolts.  It looked like no progress was being made whatsoever.  However, after working a half day installing wall panels, it appears progress is suddenly more visual.  It’s amazing how a  temperature rise of just a few degrees can help quicken the pace on a project.  We are thankful.

IMG_1016The exterior wall panels of the Nill Construction, Inc. office/shop building are Slate Grey.  This building is an American Steel Building.  Nill Construction, Inc. is an authorized dealer for American Steel Buildings.  Check out our website at:  http://www.nillconstruction.com to learn more about pre-engineered American Steel Buildings or call Nill Construction, Inc. at 701-252-6077 for more information on steel buildings.  We can build to suit!

Red Iron is going up . . .

Photo taken Monday, January 19, 2015.

The red iron erection on the new Nill Construction, Inc. office/shop building has begun. The weather last week was a bit warmer and the winds were light. This led to the decision to get some of the red iron erected. January’s weather in North Dakota is not generally like this! Mind you, we were not complaining, but instead are trying to take full advantage of it when we can.

This particular buliding is a pre-engineered American Steel Bulding. We felt the benefits of a pre-engineered steel building outweighed that of a standard wood framed structure. If you would like to hear about those benefits, give us a call at the number listed below. We are an authorized American Buildings Dealer & Builder and can not only quote you a steel building to fit your needs, but can also erect it for you. Check us out on our website at: http://www.nillconstruction.com. Click “Enter Site”. Click on the “Services” tab. Scroll down to “Pre-Engineered Steel Buildings” and click on the “American Buildings” link, located on the side.

Next time you’re in need of a building, give some serious thought to an American Steel Building and give us a call at Nill Construction, Inc. – 701-252-6077.
