________
[00:00:02] Narrator: After months of planning and countless hours dreaming of it. Construction is now underway on Zach's custom Golden Eagle Log and Timber home.
[00:00:12] Zach: It's a very exciting time in the process. You start to see a lot of movement quickly. It's just ah, it's an overwhelming sense of excitement. It's hard to stop thinking about it.
[00:00:23] Narrator: It's day one. And the excavator has arrived on site. And the crew begins digging into the soft sandy soil.
[00:00:31] Zach: We have made a lot of progress out here. First of all, we cleared off the topsoil. The Topsail has a lot of rich nutrients in there, a lot of organic matter. So we piled that over here to the side. That is what we'll put down before we ever put the lawn in in the future. It's also important to keep in mind that if I were building in the summertime. The water would naturally drain into the sand. It's very sandy around here. But it's gonna be a winter build. And with it being a winter build the ground will freeze. So we want to make sure to grade everything away from the house so we don't get big puddles out by the construction site. What you can see is we've dug for a nine foot basement here. And it all looks really good. And tomorrow we'll be doing the footings.
[00:01:10] Narrator: Before the footings can be poured. The crew stakes in the perimeter of the foundation and all of the load-bearing walls. Footings are poured pads that distribute the weight of the walls above it. And they prevent the home from sinking or shifting into the ground.
[00:01:39] Narrator: The aluminum forms where the concrete will be poured are now built on top of the footings. The forms will be removed once the concrete cures. They also frame in the large egress windows. Next the forms are filled with concrete. And the foundation walls are now complete.
[00:02:05] Zach: When a lot of us think of basements. We often think of utilities as well as areas for storage. But in today's homes. We're able to incorporate a lot of natural light. That allows us to finish off this space and make it feel like a continuation of the rest of the home.
[00:02:19] Narrator: With the forms now removed. The crew back fills the exterior using the dirt they used when they first dug out the foundation. Now they're ready for the next phase of construction.
[00:02:30] Zach: Today we're working on one of my favorite features the home and that is the in-floor heat. We are laying all the tubing in the floor here in the basement. And eventually there will be tubing in the garage also. All this will run off the same boiler. So once it's all covered up you won't be able to see it. But you'll definitely able to feel it. It was really cool to see how they laid it all out. Everything is intentional, it has a reason. There's not going to be a cold spot in that floor.
[00:02:55] Narrator: Meanwhile back at Golden Eagle Log and Timber Homes headquarters. Shipment number one is already being prepared for delivery. While some companies send the entire house in one shipment. Builders prefer Golden Eagle's staggered shipping system. That only send the materials needed in each phase of construction. This process doesn't overwhelm the job site. Or exposed finished materials to the elements outside for months on end.

Komentáre

  • All I see is “termites” and the “big bad wolf” blowing that house down😂

  • Those floor trusses are nice. That does make it easier for the hvac, plumbing, and electric systems. Professional work guys.

  • stick with stucco houses or brick :)

  • Interesting to see people sheathing the walls after they are up. It’s much easier to do it on the floor before lifting them.

  • how long is this supposed to last the wood parts?

  • I am sry to have to say this, but for this lot of effort I simply do not understand why Americans still built this way. Besides the basement everything looks super flimsy! I am surprised these houses stand as long as they do. I am used to houses being built with massive walls, ergo 7-10 inches of solid limestone, then 6 to 8 inches of rockwool stonewool and on the outer shell connected via stainless steel anchors, a brick-fassade. 11,5cm or 4.5 inches thick. This is the "typical" construction for houses in northern Germany and the outer walls will be anywhere between 18 to 21 inches thick in total. Things like a steel reinforced concrete staircase and concrete ceilings and tri-pane glased windows with 3 surrounding gaskets are standart as are walk-in showers with systems from schlüter or kerdidrain or something equivalent. Then add a front door made out of several aluminum profiles and 4 inches thick with resistance class 2 or 3 and you have a nice and safe home which will not only survive the next storm/hurricane with ease, but also still be there in 100 or 150 years. And another pluspoint - it cannot burn! One could throw molotov cocktails onto your house, neither the bricks on the outside nor the inner walls made out of stone and also not the ceilings will be able to catch on fire...

  • Despite the shallow footings the basement seems to built rather sturdy. Why continue with wood above?! Would it not have been better to just use steel reinforced concrete for the ceiling of the basement and then built walls for first and second story also out of concrete? Is there a good reason behind the decision to go with wood after the basement? In my opinion wood trusses seem far inferior in stability and also sound dampening - which one would want in a ceiling/floor. Or am I thinking wrong here?

  • Well done video and entertaining to watch - but I thought are you kidding me!? Footings just maybe 7-8 inches high/deep? Is that normal in the states? Here they have to be at least 80cm according to code, which is about 31,5 inches! That is because they have to be frost-safe according to building code.

  • So this house is 99% wood?

  • I hope he's going to make use of every inch of that house. Never fails to piss me off when rich people have huge homes and there's only two of them living there for about 8 months of the year. All those poor tree's chopped down to make room for a house that is used from even more tree's, sad and ironic.

    • +Golden Eagle Log and Timber Homes . Very nice but for the hundred or so years some of those tree's took to grow i wonder how many it will be until your planted trees grow?

    • For each tree cut down 3 more are planted, Some people what wood some stone some brick you can have whatever you want we are a very custom company 1

  • Reach be like: *Building my small dream house* 😐

  • As your build your house remember later to add more trees to save mother Earth

    • +Golden Eagle Log and Timber Homes Good boy or girl 😂😂😂

    • For each tree cut down 3 more are planted, Some people what wood some stone some brick you can have whatever you want we are a very custom company 1

  • never heard of bricks?

  • 6:26 winter is coming #hbo #GOT

  • *"A must purchase if your considering building a home from a shipping container.>>>**deam.design/zncr** I completed my container home just 3 weeks ago and couldn't be happier with the final product. Without the help of Warrens guide to building a container home it would cost thousands more and taken weeks longer.*

  • You tube recommending Golden Eagle Log and Timber Homes. It's one long commercial folks.

  • Is this why bigger houses are the same price as a regular house in the UK? Mainly because they are made of wood and not brick?

  • As an european houses made of wood make me feel very unconfortable lmao

    • Ok Thanks for watching

    • +Fügedy Tamás flimsy as f...

    • Why?

  • Feels weird to see a house mostly composed of wood. From I'm from, everything is usually concrete, otherwise you'll be dead during typhoon season.

    • +Golden Eagle Log and Timber Homes do you build houses oversees? Like say a contract from Asia or Africa or Australia?

    • That's the thing though. The world is huge, hence, I am amused to see that some houses doesn't need to be entirely built with concrete and steel to be stable. Thanks for the info. 😊

    • What you do not know is in different parts of our large and great country are building codes when homes are built in hurricane areas the homes are designed for that.when the are built in earthquake areas the are designed for that.when we sell a home in heavy snow such as the Rocky mountains the roof is designed for 150 pounds per sq versus 20 pound per sq ft in say Florida speaking of Florida the homes there need to have special salt water protection. I would rather be in Golden Eagle custom home than any other building in extreme cold or wind speaking of wind we also design our home for side wind shear. thanks for watching

    • Christine Helen Pe Manuel exactly what I was thinking

  • the way this guy says basement

  • aluminum forms!!! shit when i did this shit is was steel forms and half inch ply wood. fuckers were heavy

  • why wood though....the oldest wood homes in my area that haven't been kept with "art" quality care are around 100-150 years old

    • Bcus you only live to 75, so who gives a fuck

  • Oh so he got money money

  • million dollar house.. made with OSB ...

  • Fruity

  • Why on earth would you build a home out of wood! this isn't pioneer days in the American west. There are better less burnable options.

  • Why did they pour all that concrete (for what I guess was garage area?) and filled it all with sand later?

  • V

  • Jist a question was ther road base for a solid foundation. I mean isnt that pretty common to use beigns your in sand? Just a question on behalf of my home ideas

  • Low quality building....

    • thanks for watching

    • +Dieser Kanal existiert nicht mehr I think all over europe, even without natual disasters like major earthquakes and hurricanes, we still build with brick, while in the US they still act like they jumped off the Mayflower

  • I just wonder how the plumbing for the bathroom was done. Where does the poo-poo go? (As I did not see any plumbing/tubing done from basement-level).

  • Can you please tell us what camera did you use at 3:25 ? Thank you.

  • Right from the beginning I said.. How.. Much.. Does THIS.. COST..?? YIKES. I WANT ONE THO

  • must be nice to be a multi millionaire

  • Stupid Americans building there homes out of wood, its 2019 not 1850

  • wheres the murder dungeon?

  • The house seems small tbh. Maybe its just because it's on a lot of open land, but using the people working on the house as a reference, the rooms look tiny.

    • I have noticed that, when you put a house on a large lot it seems smaller, but I have been in there many times the house is really open. But we could make yours bigger We have built homes as large as 19,000 sq. ft.

  • in america you use a lot of houses out of factory produced parts. i am an carpenter aprentice in norway and we still use two by fours and nails. but in norway its extreamly strict rules when building houses.

  • Holy, the way you've built this is amazing, the process and methods, if I wasn't in the UK if 100% want to work with you guys

  • Why does the wood does not get termites?

  • Its so different building house in my country

  • now thats i see this i feel like im about to fall through the floor! Im upstairs 🤦‍♂️

  • If i had a million dollars i would do this as well...

  • You ever worried about missing a screw?

  • Americans. They love to dream, don't they. Wake tf up already. This is fantasy for 99% of Americans.

  • Wow good building

  • Back filling on concrete ties is a NO NO. Looks like you sprayed Deco coat or similar on walls but I don't see the corrugated plastic drain panels to support it.

  • Wow, an Ad!

  • Ep 5 How To Make A Big Fire Place In The Woods

  • Wait, so just putting a foundation on sand is enough to prevent tilting or sinking in heavy rain etc.?

  • I didnt see any armature, or iron bars in concrete walls

  • Shame you couldn't get that INCREDIBLY LOUD AND UNNECESSARY music turned up just a bit more.

  • Nice Mud. Good slump.

  • the concrete was not vibrated to better compress and avoid bubbles? Excellent job! Hugs from Brazil.

  • 2:00 listen to the way he says basements

  • you are good

  • niggas using particle board as exterior walls WTF...

  • They using a lot of lumber, but why they not use termite control to prevent termite attack in the future?

    • Depends on the state and the customers choice

    • +Golden Eagle Log and Timber Homes Thanks for responding, are you usually using pest control company like Rentokil or Terminix to do termite control or you just doing by yourself ?

    • We use termite control in climates that need it, there are no termites in this part of the Wisconsin. Thanks for watching

  • what if winter comes early you have so much logs to burn, i mean..

  • How meny moneys do you spend on it?

    • We have released info on the fully built (turnkey) cost of Zach's Dream Home: www.goldeneagleloghomes.com/galleries/videos/building-my-dream-home/building-my-dream-home-cost.asp

  • Honestly, it's 2019 and you're still building pre-built houses with wood.

  • 2:05 🤣🤣🤣 beismaents

  • Queue house building theme

  • Should have went with electric floor heating, not glycol...

  • How long does a home like this last? I`m from the UK and used to a brick built home.

  • I prefer full concrete construction but it is a nice build.

  • how it's made narrator, is that you? I missed you my dude :')

  • Сказка о трёх поросятах очень поучительная, а именно, что каменный дом прочнее других, так что когда подует ветер и сдует ваш фанерный дом, то вините в этом только себя.

  • This house is good but only at day time...

  • No waterproofing of the foundation, ha-ha-ha

  • guys only 1 layer of gravel inside forest ? 1 year later humidity in your basement will be sky high,in my country we use rocks,first they bring big pile of rocks for ground then poison gaps between rocks,against ants scorpion etc.then basement or whatever you build.

  • i thought this was gonna be a house, not a tree house.. why do Americans make homes from wood?!? they never finished the three pigs story?

  • how much did all this cost

    • We have released info on the fully built (turnkey) cost of Zach's Dream Home: www.goldeneagleloghomes.com/galleries/videos/building-my-dream-home/building-my-dream-home-cost.asp

  • How thick were those footings?

  • That's a cheap house for you.

  • Great home and I wish your family more luxury’s and health brother !!!

    • We have released info on the fully built (turnkey) cost of Zach's Dream Home: www.goldeneagleloghomes.com/galleries/videos/building-my-dream-home/building-my-dream-home-cost.asp

  • Question: the subterrain concrete has no water protection? Just the soil directly to the wall? Fungus time and low duration?

    • Zach’s foundation is sealed with Karnak. It is waterproofed with a gray sealer. If you look at the exterior closely, you can see that there is a slight color change. The drain tile is built right into the forms for the footings.

  • I’m someone who knows a lot about video and video production. And I would love to give this guy a lot of credit. He definitely hired a voiceover artist from Fiver or something and he filmed all of this, so good for him!

  • no water proofing on outside of concrete basement walls? in sandy soil? Just curious, seems a major omission. Also no drainage on exterior of basement walls, or on the interior side of basement walls. (at least no mention of any)

    • I didn’t see much rebar in the walls.

    • And even though it's need water proof system

    • Thanks for watching

    • +Golden Eagle Log and Timber Homes Nothing was mentioned in the video, that's why I commented. Thought it was highly unusual on a home like that.

    • Zach’s foundation is sealed with Karnak. It is waterproofed with a gray sealer. If you look at the exterior closely, you can see that there is a slight color change. The drain tile is built right into the forms for the footings.

  • Why is he digging a swimming pool?

    • Zach has decided not to have a swimming pool, but one can always be added in the future. Thank you very much for watching and commenting!

  • been buildin for 41 yrs an never ever framed a 2 story home with 2x8,s.an i live in pa..whats the purpose of 2x8 ????

    • Stronger is better. If you can afford it go stronger. In Europe there a company that builds solid wood walls that are layered together amd nailed with wood nails. No insulation just more wood on top of wood to exceed their insulation standards. The factory where they do some of the preconstruction is made from wood.

    • The home was widely framed with 2x6 but we do use 2x8 on some tall walls to reduce wall flex.

  • SV-tv for god's sake i have watched this video stop recommending it to me

  • The workers are all American!!!

  • i'm only watching this video because youtube wouldn't stop recommending it to me.

    • +forbidden pollo Just like nobody asked for your dumb-ass comment. Oh, the irony! At least he contributed something, you did not.

    • +Marian Vlioncu no one asked

    • lol..yeah me too

    • Maybe they want u to be involved, or they watching u.

    • SAMMMMMEEE!

  • Wondering: Backfilling the basement and no word about a water barier to the wall and drainage of the foundationarea??

    • Zach’s foundation is sealed with Karnak. It is waterproofed with a gray sealer. If you look at the exterior closely, you can see that there is a slight color change. The drain tile is built right into the forms for the footings.

  • Work hard and work smart; it's amazing what a person can have. This will be a beautiful home.

  • I don’t know why there’s so many hate comments the only complaints I have is the music is louder than voices

  • that annoying music sure does suck

    • Sorry about that. Thank you very much for watching! Be sure to subscribe. Zach will be featuring more projects in the future.

  • Total Commercial...but I will watch

  • Now I know what I will be working for!

  • Beautiful so far. :) God bless you.

  • its pretty cool to see how you build homes in hotter areas, i myself are from Denmark. We build a bit different over here. for an example it always have to be covered up.

  • Watching this is making me super excited to start building a home in a couple months, can’t wait to step onto my first job site!

  • Did you not waterproof your basement?

    • Zach’s foundation is sealed with Karnak. It is waterproofed with a gray sealer. If you look at the exterior closely, you can see that there is a slight color change.
