To continuing on our story of the whole house remodel project.

The 1st stage in preparing for this whole house remodel was to deconstruct the portions of the project that will not be used i.e. framed walls, drywall, electrical, HVAC, windows, etc. and remove from the site.  We also will re-purpose some existing components if salvageable to keep from going in the landfill IE. doors, windows, plumbing fixtures by donating to Habitat for Humanity or simply put back into the project.

The photos shown in the below set are from the 2nd phase to rebuild according to the new plan/design.  So you’ll see new walls being framed and structural components being installed and the start of forward thinking to incorporate the new design elements.  At this phase we see a lot of collaboration with the architect/designer due to unforeseen situations that occur once the walls are open.  Typically we see structural and/or plumbing, electrical or HVAC components that may need to be relocated.  It can be something as simple as moving a wall or window a few inches.  Nonetheless the goal is to come-up with an economical solution.

 

We will continue this story in more posts to show how a full remodel takes what a house currently looks like to the work of art that was envisioned.

We hope you will enjoy following our story through the course of construction.

This project called for a 9500 KW solar system with 10 KW hours from a Sonnen smart energy battery back-up system. Unlike the normal solar systems we have seen so far, where the power goes out from your local power company and their solar system doesn’t work. This new type of system with the battery back-up allows the home to still operate the primary electrical system I.E. plugs and lights through-out the entire home.

One really cool thing according to the electrical inspector was that this is the 1st known system in Sedona. Nice to be on the cutting edge!

Another cool feature we included at this Sedona residence solar project is the lightening protection. Although these systems are not designed to fully protect the electrical components of the home it will help prevent a fire if struck by lightning. The lightening conductors are strategically placed on the home to intercept a strike where the energy is transferred though a heavy conductor wire to the ground.

  2. July 7, 2016 (LOS ANGELES, CA) – The U.S. residential solar energy storage market is experiencing unparalleled growth due to the increase in solar installations and the end of net-metering across numerous states. In order to meet the rapidly growing demand for storing solar energy, sonnen announces the launch of the sonnenBatterie eco compact. The streamlined eco compact is designed to increase grid-tied solar consumption and is available at up to 40 percent the cost of sonnen’s other products.Link to article: Sonnen reduces U.S. residential energy storage system cost
