    Hansson,
    Very nice. I've never seen framing like that, is it standard practice there? Those trusses are pretty massive.
    You've basically got a header the whole length of the wall.
    Very interesting.

    That looks strong to hold a lot of snow. Fantastic amount of insulation. I'm very impressed with the job Hansson. Enjoy!

    It`s lecka walls.The insulate some. I wanted more insulation around the walls but it never happened.

    Maybe I put some foams on the walls later

    Under the ground around the block wall there is insulation for the ground frost

    Thanks for posting Hanson. That looks like it will be a very nice addition. Please keep posting updates as the project progresses.

    What is the age of the main building? What temperatures do you see in winter?

    Now the floor heat is ON :)

    I got a 4-way mixing valve that first take the return water from the radiators in the main building.
    If that is not hot enough the valve takes water from the top of the tanks.

    The automatic heat regulator is a Thermomatic CBJ RS from http://www.termoventiler.se/

    Some new pictures.

    The installation is not complete the pipes have to be insulated and some wiring is left.

    Have a nice day

    That is very impressive plumbing. And the crimped joints, I imagine that saves a lot of time over soldering all of them? Nice work man! Bring the cold!

    I see you chose RoXul insulation. I just reinsulated my entire house with this stuff. Did you find it easier to work with than traditional fiberglass? I did.

    Looks great Hansson. Are the windows double or triple glass? I agree with the patching. All the sanding and dust is terrible. The ceiling paint looks nice. What are you going to put on the floor?

    It`s triple glass. U value 1.0 i think.
    Double glass is not used here.

    On the floor it becomes an oak laminate floor.

    In the roof I will have 9 9w LED Spots. And 1w leds over the windows

    Windows will be installed today :)

    Looks great! We're in the middle of renovating an old one-room school house, so we can appreciate the amount of work that went into your addition.

    Keep up the awesome work!
