I just ran in to another little problem. I called Janes Brothers to have them come out and pour Gyp-Crete for my radiant heating and was told that my project is too small.
Now I am looking for suggestions. I would like the radiant floor heat - for now I plan on living in it year-round. Can I just staple tubes under the floor (3/4" OSB) or do I need defuser plates if I go that route?
Does anyone know of anyone else that pours gypcrete or a similar underlayment?
I was also looking at the electric radiant floor heat. I did a heat load calculation and according to all published material it would be about the same cost to heat with electric then oil (boiler). Does anyone have any experience with electric?
The cabin is smallish. Sealed good and insulated real good. I might through a wood stove or a toyo in - but I don't like large heating appliance taking up valuable space. Another reason why this electric stuff looks appealing.
Any thoughts? I have double sole plates, but I guess I could fix the door height problem by cutting them both and tacking one at the top of the door.
The cabin is in the Wasilla area. At Pt Mac Road and KGB.
