When you're thinking about buying a new home, a critical thing to look at is its foundation. It's the core of the structure and holds everything together, so it's smart to watch out for any potential issues there. This one's been sprayed with a sealant to give it an extra level of waterproofing. Let's start outside. Look for any large trees growing close to the house. Those encroaching roots could cause problems down the road. Once inside, be sure to look at the walls and ceilings in each room. Are there any obvious.
Modular Homes NM Alternative Building Solutions
Hi, I'm Olivia with Alternative Building Solutions. If you are looking to get a modular home built in New Mexico, there are a few things I'd like to clear up. A modular home is not the same thing as a manufactured home, or what is more commonly referred to as a mobile home. The two are actually quite different. So different in fact, that the New Mexico Construction Industry Division actually has two different sets of standards that the types of homes are built to. A modular home is built to the same set of standards as a conventional stick.
Built home. Banks have also recognized this difference and they will treat a modular home the same as a regular home. Modular homes appreciate in value over time, unlike mobile homes that will depreciate. They will actually lose value as soon as you drive them off the lot. An ABS offsite home is very similar to a modular home, but it is not the same thing. A factory built modular home goes down a conveyor belt and is quickly assembled according to a specific set of plans that a customer has chosen from. Due to the factory like construction.
There is little room for customization of the floor plan. Here at ABS we build our modular homes one stick at a time according to the plans that the customer designs. Because we are not a factory, the customer has a lot of flexibility in designing their own dream home. We also build slab on grade homes for those customers who are close enough to our facility who have site conditions that will limit us from shipping a house to them, or who just prefer a site built home. Because we do build onsite homes, I can honestly say.
That we build our offsite homes in the same way using the same materials. The only difference is the floor system. On onsite house will be on a slab of concrete while the offsite house will have a floor system similar to the second level of a two story home. Because we build our offsite modular homes the same way we build our onsite homes, you will receive better quality from an ABS modular than a factory modular. Many of the materials we use exceed those used in a factory. Once done it will be hard to tell the difference between.
The two finished products. Our prices for our modular homes includes everything you will need. Something to keep in mind is that most other modular home dealers will include only the price of the home. Their price will not include your foundation, the transportation of the home, the site work, the landings at each doorway, the plumbing under the home, or your electric meter. These can easily add up to $30,000 to the final price of the home. At ABS all of our listed prices include all of these items, and since we are the general.
Temporary housing planned for homeless in Waianae
Point3 million dollar plan to house some of the homeless living on the Leeward Coast is starting to take shape. A news conference is planned tomorrow, but. KITV4's Andrew Pereira has the details tonight. Andrew Yunji, the city is using shipping containers to build temporary housing at Sand Island. But this proposed facility will use modular construction. It's just off Farrington Highway next to Maluhia Lutheran Church. This one acre lot in Waianae is not much to look at right now, but holds a lot of promise for those down on their.
Luck. MAYOR KIRK CALDWELL THIS IS ABOUT HOUSING THE FOLKS IN WAIANAE IN WAIANAE IN A VERY NICE, MODULAR TYPE SETTING. Plans call for modular housing that can be split into 16 to 20 units complete with kitchens and bathrooms, so not much construction is involved. SANDRA PFUND WE'RE TRYING TO GET THIS TECHNOLOGY DOWN. WE'RE DOING SOME THAT ARE DIFFERENT IN SAND ISLAND FOR CONTAINERS, BUT WE CAN ALSO TRY THE MODULAR APPROACH, WHICH IS PREFABRICATED UNITS THAT WE CAN PUT UP QUICKLY. The facility will also feature parking, a common.
Area for residents and a community garden. The new facility could house as many as 90 people. SANDRA PFUND WE'RE LOOKING AT THIS AS A STEP UP FROM A TRANSITIONAL SHELTER, WE WANT TO SEE WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP TO BECOME A LITTLE BIT MORE PERMANENT FOR FAMILIES TO GET STABLE BEYOND THE SHELTERTYPE OPERATION. ANDREW PEREIRA YEAH THAT'S RIGHT, UNLIKE THE TEMPORARY HOUSING GOING UP AT SAND ISLAND, THIS FUTURE FACILITY WILL ACCEPT FAMILIES. MAYOR KIRK CALDWELL THERE'S NOT ENOUGH SITES FOR FAMILIES AND AS WE DO OUR ENFORCEMENT.
ACTIONS, WE DO NOT WANT TO ENFORCE AREAS WHERE FAMILIES ARE THAT DON'T HAVE A PLACE TO GO. AND THIS IS ABOUT HELPING FAMILIES GET A PLACE TO GO. The city hopes to acquire the 1.1 acre parcel for $300,000. The modular units and program office are expected to cost $2 million. The city wants the eventual operator to have close ties to the Leeward Coast, and will soon present the plans to the Nanakuli and Waianae neighborhood boards. MAYOR KIRK CALDWELL WE'RE WORKING VERY CLOSELY WITH THIS COMMUNITY, WE UNDERSTAND IT'S A.

Next Generation Arctic Research Vessel Ontrack for Voyage of Discovery Science Nation
MUSIC MILES O'BRIEN With a slide and splash, the Research Vessel, Sikuliaq, took to the water on a wet and windy day. But for the scientists itching to explore the Arctic seas off the coast of Alaska, it was all sunny smiles. MICHAEL CASTELLINI Just an amazing day. It's been so long in the making and to actually see it go in the water was just phenomenal. MILES O'BRIEN Working with the National Science Foundation, Dean Michael Castellini and other scientists from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, are overseeing the Sikuliaq's.
Construction at the Marinette Marine Shipyard in Wisconsin. The 261foot long ship is designed to move through ice and will be outfitted with the latest navigation and mapping technology, laboratories, sensor systems and over the side handling cranes. Fourteen years in the planning and construction stages, it is the brainchild of the oceanographer Terry Whitledge. TERRY WHITLEDGE The mission of this vessel is basically to support state of the art science in polar regions, especially ice covered seas. MILES O'BRIEN Sikuliaq is an Inupiaq word meaning young sea ice. MICHAEL CASTELLINI The Sikuliaq is perfectly, the.
Perfect vessel for working in the pack ice, the ice that breaks up and moves around. And for working in ice that's a couple feet thick. MILES O'BRIEN The nearly $200 million ship is funded largely by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. TERRY WHITLEDGE It was the first project out the door as I understand it for the stimulus funds. And since the package was ready and it was a single contract for the construction, it was like perfect for stimulus type funding. MILES O'BRIEN Marinette Marine's Chuck Goddard says the.
Project is employing area welders, pipe fitters, electricians and others in the ship building trade. CHUCK GODDARD It will take us about two and a half years from the time we started the fabrication to actually get the ship and deliver it. In that timeframe, typically there'd be between 100 and 200 people onboard. We employ 1,400 people here at the shipyard so it's a sizeable part of our workforce. MILES O'BRIEN Now that the ship is in the water, the build out continues. The science can't start soon enough for Whitledge.
How to Build a Walkout Basement Structure Side Supports for Basement Walls
This is Ben Ingham with Expert Village talking about a walk out basement. On the sides of each side I want dirt to fill in there and I would be building up a wall in between the cinder block wall the dirt wall to keep the dirt and sand that I have back filled with from washing out in the front. Cause I still want it to continue to be a walk up basement. So I would build some kind of wall that would hold the dirt back there are cinder blocks.
That are made particular fashion that locks to each other and you can drive them into the ground and that would be a way that you can build it up and it would hold the soil back on both sides because I don't want the dirt to be washing out and coming back around here. I want it to be held back so right now I just have some rubble left over cracked and broken blocks that I just stuck in there in the mean time just to keep from washing.
Trends Talkers Container Homes
Container Could happen and it's what has you talking tonight. KITV4 got a peek inside what could be the future of micro housing in Hawaii. The demonstration project on the grounds of Honolulu Hale by the nonprofit group FACE is showing off a 20' by 8' shipping container, transformed into a dwelling unit for five people. There's room for bunkbeds and a desk inside, but no bathrooms or kitchen facilities. It cost about $11,000 to to make it livable. Could this be the answer to the our housing crunch Solomon DuPont says,.
Amazing Idea! Create more of these and then just make a public restroom area for all to share. This is a great start. Michael Guerrero writes, Nice. better then sleeping on the streets. But Denise Crosby counters, I don't get the great appeal. It has no bathroom or kitchen. I can't imagine living without runny water, if only to wash my hands. No facilities means they would need to be erected like a wagon train at night, with Porta Toilets barbecue grills or cooking implements, of course trash disposal. I.
