Lakeside Shanty


We'll be starting at this site soon. Just a modest 10,000 sq. ft. weekend getaway... lots of steel and glass, with a little stonework thrown in for good measure.

Re: Lakeside Shanty

Agreed... on both counts. I'm not sure I could survive without the 0.1%.

Yes there are two fireplaces, but 4 chimneys... a couple of the chimneys are for ventilation, furnace stacks, HVAC, range hood exhaust etc. There will be a minimum of "walls' in this place... a LOT of glass.

No ash dumps, although I suppose if we were to do them, we'd have to line the inside of the ICF with some masonry and an air-space.

Re: Lakeside Shanty


Do they jam rebar out of the foundation so you can pour a hearth? Or does that entire area get filled with...fill? and the hearth poured on that?

We would typically lay block on the interior, up to the height of the ICF, to complete the rectangular base for the fireplace, cap the rectangle with patio slabs and then pour a re-enforced slab over the whole thing, ending up flush with the sub floor. There will be re-bar to tie the slab to the ICF and our block-work.

Huh, patio slabs. Good idea. I've been trying to figure out the best way to pour the slab. i don't do a lot of fireplaces but what I've done is to use a piece of plywood supported by 2x4. Where the ash door is I build a bond beam across and leave 2 or 3 blocks out. Then after the pad is poured I lean in to the ash dump and cut out the 2x4's and then go up and smash the plywood down through the ash dump hole. Slow and dumb. But I never built an FP with someone else, just in school. That taught me the code and ho to do a firebox and smoke chamber etc... but not really the practicalities. Patio slabs could be left in pace where wood couldn't. I guess so could cement board but I don't know if it could take the weight

I like doing them and am always wanting to know the best/better way of doing them. So far you, artisanstone, JBM and a few others have been a real wealth.

Thanks to all of you

Re: Lakeside Shanty


I use cementboard under the firebox. Support it on all 4 sides and it supports 10" of porty.

I cant wait to see what this project turns into

Then there's always corrugated steel roofing panels for larger spans.

Re: Lakeside Shanty


I typically use rebar to span the opening and lay a sheet or two of wire lath over it. Bigger openings get scrap steel decking or roofing.

Re: Lakeside Shanty


And we're back...
We've been working at this site on and off for the past year... mostly through the worst winter I can remember which has sure stretched out the time frame... Wrapped thing up about a month ago and am now trying to wade through the many photos I have amassed.
I'll try and share in a logical sequence if i can...

The building in general;
