THE CHASSIS IS HERE!!

Posted on — By Valentina Alayon

With the arrival of our chassis, the construction of our Solar Decathlon home can finally begin. We would like to thank AMC Fabrication for their high-quality work and timely delivery.

What we’ve accomplished thus far?

The team has been working arduously to prepare for the arrival of the chassis. We have leveled out the type 2 pad. This makes it easier to have a leveled work area for framing the home. The outlines of the chassis and the deck were also painted onto the floor.

What’s next in construction with the chassis?

Within the next couple of weeks, we will be extremely busy. The first step is to level the piers. The chassis will then have holes drilled for the studs and tie downs. The C-Channels will be laid out for bolted connections. The chassis will then be sheathed with a plywood subfloor. The team will be posting plenty of pictures of our progress so make sure that you are following us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
