A new house will be built on a frost-protected shallow foundation, basically a thickened-edge floating slab, on a rural plot in a cold climate.
Water supply will be from nearby well, yet to be drilled. Sewage is to adjacent septic tank and field.
What is done in a system, design-wise, to ensure a quick and prudent pre-freeze closing up of the house, and what is done to make it possible to open up for a couple weeks at a time of winter visits?
Better ask Piffen!:thumbsup:
