Arched Cabins Distributors – David Raw is the founder and owner of bow cabins. Dave is the original designer of bow cabins and now holds two pending patents on the design and utility of the arch hut. Dave’s home is in Timbern, New Mexico. He regularly consults with bow cabin clients and manages the versions.
Joshua Rawy is a partner and co-owner of arched cabins and is based in Cypress, Texas. Josh regularly builds vaulted cabins with his team and can answer technical design and design questions. He is responsible for operating at our Cypress headquarters and has driven bow cabins into the digital age by creating our Facebook page and website.
We have a central phone number that we can all put on at the Bogendhütte, which runs Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm, Paris time. Please call 832-930-ARCH to contact someone available for your questions, make an offer to you or something else!
You may have noticed the insulation under the cover material in a few poles at the back. It was a few inches more than the house. To clean things up, the surplus has been reduced to be aligned with the end caps. We would prefer it to be unpolished and bent under the liner, creating a natural overlap of insulation with plug.
The smart side layer should have been installed with nails every 16 inches (horizontal) and all 12 inches (vertical), and the heads of the nails should be flush with the surface (don’t sink halfway). It appears her nail rifle was set too high for the entire process and the distance was too wide.
Since this coating is known for its ability to refine the contract with moisture, we had to close everything to perfection, add extra nails to the crevices and stash their holes. That’s a lot of extra work that we thought we’d already paid for.
The ties were welded too close to the curved wall, with most of their angles inserted into the insulation. To reduce the thermal bridges and avoid incisions in the insulation, we will reduce the angles with a cutting saw. We love the idea of an arch cabin and are happy for one to call us at home. You really can’t understand how cool it is until you’re there.
The team has done an excellent job in both the metal aspects of the project and the foundations. However, we believe the final work was amateurish in terms of the striking precision with which the foundation and metal structure were built.
In a typical construction, the window fins are nailed to the OSB liner and the side disc stops to cover the fins and protect the window from moisture, even as you approach the window opening (with the tape, the caulking, etc.). In this case, however, the LP Smartside Panel represents the coating and coating of the stoppers.
And although the windows in front of the smartside might have been nailed to the framing, our windows were installed as the last thing in front of the smartside table. So there is no superfluous “belt and brace ” protection against moisture, which slips behind the fins in the rain. To protect the openings, it fully lives up to the butyl back-filmed Pella Smart Flash.
On the other hand, while it’s not weather-protected, it’s easy to access the joints and maintain them when needed. In a typical construction, the windows between the line and the liner are stuck, making repairs or non-destructive investigations quite difficult.
Again, we agree with the way we were done, but we want to be known in advance. We would then have had our weather protection materials to protect the structure from the next storm. (See next point) The crew questioned the windows ‘ opposition to the bad weather and immediately suggested the Pella Smart Flash Band.
It was great to get such an admissions sign for a particular product and we felt it was worth taking 4 hours of drive to get it before the next monsoon attack. However, this step really should have been taken in the installation of the window and not left it
