Can you put a basement on a cob house?
Yes, it is possible. It's likely that it will need to be constructed from concrete to ensure the basement is capable of supporting the heavy cob structures of the house.

Answer Well, unless you have a basement so deep it reaches to the fires of hell, I'd say you have a heating vent leak. Your money is being wasted heating th…e basement. A few dollars in locating the HVAC leak and repairing it will save thousands later. Contact an HVAC repairman (Heating/Ventilation & Air Conditioning),
Answer Not unless it is finished.
How long after you blanch corn on the cob can you wait for it to cool before you put it in freezer bags?
Most people blanch it. Then, have ice & water in the sink and put the corn in it. This cools it off fast. You can freeze it right away. Otherwise it might take a half ho…ur to cool. The reason for waiting isn't "for the corn to cool" (it wouldn't hurt the corn to go into the freezer while it's hot) it's to protect your other items in the freezer from being exposed to the heat.
first of all, the attic is closer to the sun. moreover, the atmospheric level is very low in the basement ( radiant heat barely reaches the basement) next, the higher the air… gets the less oxygen there is in the air. so high air level is always warm also, the cold air is more dense and sinks, warm air rises. last, the cold air in the basement heats up and rises as warm air in the attic cools and sinks.
There are a few options of doing this. You can use a "Sani-plus" toilet which is a back outlet toilet that has an ejector pump in it. it is also equipped with 2 …other waste connections on either side of the tank. This allows you to plumb in a lav. sink and a bathtub. You can also install a lift station wich is an air tight 50 gallon container with a submersible pump inside that pumps the water and waste up to the level above.
It would depend on the type of floor you are installing. There haven't been enough details about the project provided to answer this question thoroughly. If you are install…ing engineered hardwood just lay down a 3/4" piece of plywood and a moisture barrier. If you are installing a floating floor, use a moisture barrier and two 1/2" pieces of plywood. see related links
Yes. There are contractors that specialize in lifting entire houses using steel beams placed under the floor system. Assuming the terrain and drainage allows, your home can …be lifted and moved off while a basement is doug and the concrete poured or block laid.
Warm air is less dense and tends to rise, cool air is more dense and tends to sink. That is why a hot air balloon rises if the air inside is warmer than the outside air.
It would be very complicated to install a basement under a preplaced modular home. It is possible but would be very costly.
yes you can as long as the floor stays clean and as long as the basement remains clean
Coordination of benefits, it is a medical term used in claims/billing.
Bowling lanes were first built in the ground floor of the West Wing as a birthday gift for President Truman in 1947 (in the location of the present-day Situation Room); …Truman didn't care for bowling himself, but allowed staff to start a league. These were moved to the Old Executive Office Building in 1955 to make way for a mimeograph room. In 1969, President and Mrs. Nixon, both avid bowlers, had a new one-lane alley built (paid for by friends) in an underground workspace area below the driveway leading to the North Portico.
You probably want to use a water resistant drywall, available anywhere drywall is sold.
thatwould depend on the purpose of the insulation sound or thermal? Assuming thermal the available height of the ceiling would dictate what you can achieve but 50-100mm Knauf …brand would be a good average. However you may want a natural insulation or sound inslulation combined. You should fits consider how much space you have, what type of insulation type and function you require and work out your optimum purchase from that. Richard
The official definition of the word cob is "the central, cylindrical, woody part of the corn ear to which the grains, or kernels, are attached."
