Technical breakout for First Day Fans and Interested Builders

Technical breakout for First Day Fans and Interested Builders

Our basic garage/house kit is 22 ft wide with a 20 foot porch transitioning into a 47 foot long house with an added cupola (for light and heat shedding). Basically a 67 foot long garage... In rib form our neighbors think it looks like a church. Four inches of insulation on the roof and two inches in the side, to meet Florida code. Lots of windows, east/west oriented to maximize light yet avoid summer sun.

So far, we believe we hold the extreme Southern end of the (ever increasing) First Day nation( or confederacy? or cooperative?) In this part of the gator nation, First Days are a total novelty to plans inspectors, building inspectors and most of our subs.

And don't forget the constant vigilance needed to keep a tidy building site.
