Chad

Phase one . . . complete.

Recommended Posts

Construction has finally begun in Oakhurst. Demolition / equipment removal started on Monday and final clean up will be completed by tomorrow. Next is construction / site work. Every square inch of curbing, cement and blacktop is getting removed and replaced with heated cement. Anticipated time frame till completion is 70 days.

 

Oh, and yes, that is yours truly operating the hoe! :)

FINAL RESULT:

Anyone who is curious why I decided to leave one wall (and two small pieces of side walls) standing is because if we were to knock those down it would no longer be considered a re-model. It would then be considered new construction, many more permits, more planning board meetings, zoning, etc. If you leave 3 load-bearing walls up, it is only considered a remodel.

Hey Chad,

 

"Heated Cement"

 

I assume you are heating with hot water radiant (pex embedded in the cement), just curious?

 

Any plans to supplement the fossil fuel with solar?

 

No worries Brisco, Chad makes his own fossil fuel every time he farts. They have a vacuum system connected to his chair at work that just sucks it away every time he lets one go. For the past few months he's been receiving payment from the electrical company!!

Brisco, I've looked into it. I would have to have the entire roof covered in solar panels, and it would only cover approx 10% of the cost to operate the system. Not that it matters, but it actually runs anti-freeze.

Very cool Chad,

 

I'm actually surprised more car washes don't use radiant, it should speed up your time before opening after a storm, plus your crew is going to love it.

 

If possible, ( if you have an option) use as much insulation(not bubble foil) as you can under the slab. I asked about the hot water because they do make electric heating blankets for use in a slab, I believe they would be a very poor choice. Most likely, you will be using hot water with 50% ethylene glycol anti-freeze

 

Now if you could just invent a way to wash my truck (utility body with ladder racks), I would be a happy man

 

How many BTUs of heated slab?

I have it at 3 other locations already, its amazing. Its not so much for after a storm (because the roads themselves are still wet, etc and we don't open anyway) but more just for freezing temps. Cars come out wet and dripping, which results in ice on the ground. We were constantly throwing salt down, which doesn't sit to well with people that just paid to have their car cleaned. lol . . . it gets on their shoes, and then they get into their clean car. When its below freezing, the heaters kick on, and the entire front and back slabs remain ice free all day. As far as the BTUs I have no idea. . . I will have to look on the spec sheet for what we are putting in at this location. Not sure what we have at the other ones either. I'll find out. :) I was able to dig up a pic I took over the winter after a snow fall. You can clearly see where the heated cement ends and the asphalt begins lol. . .

Yeah, for a few weeks time. It will really start to fly now.

 

Right on schedule for the 70 day time frame. I've never seen such a high quality builder before. Amazing work, super impressive, and runs a tighter ship than I do! lol

 

As you can see by the parking lot, there are quite a few crews working, and this was lunch time! We took over the parking lot next door also heh! LOVE IT!!!

Yes, we do pick ups (as long as there is NOTHING in the bed). . . Should be ready to go on the 23rd of July. But I will keep you posted on that, as it stands now we are right on schedule.

Wrong doors on the cabinets . . . same wood, just with panels on them.

All these cars are hand painted by the two faux painters. . . they did an amazing job throughout. Its hard to see, but the faux has a texture to it.

    • Medal rounds for the mixed-team Air Rifle and Air Pistol events were held today.   This is a new event in this Olympic cycle, with each mixed team composed of one male and one female shooter from their respective national team in each discipline. Mixed Team 10 meter Air Rifle Gold:  China Silver:  USA Bronze: Russia*   Mixed Team 10 meter Air Pistol Gold:  China Silver: Russia* Bronze: Ukraine   *Russia and many of their top athletes are currently serving out a multi-year ban from international competition, as a result of being busted for state-sponsored doping violations on a massive scale.  However, many of their athletes are still being allowed to compete as the 'Russian Olympic Committee' (ROC) team, flying Russian colors but not the actual flag.   I'll still refer to them as Russia here. Russia making a mockery of their Olympics ban
    • Nope.  They just left it at my door.  Was USPS - has USPS stickers all over it, not Fedex.
    • Really? Mine was FedEx all the way. I assumed the signature/age requirement was because of the value. It's not a firearm and there's no serial number. Did you have to sign?
