This energy-efficient grain bin house uses foam and fiberglass insulation, plus computer-assisted passive solar heating.
Two bins create this energy-efficient home in the Uinta Mountains of Utah.
The interior of this grain bin building includes some corrugated metal, but is primarily traditional.
In Kansas, the Ehmke family uses this bin as a residence, an office and a scale house (where grain trucks are weighed).
The size of this bin has been reduced without cutting the steel. It has been “squeezed.”
Sealing gaps and shedding water are important aspects of window and door installation.
“Rain screens” add visual interest over the windows. The joints do not need to be sealed.
The custom-made door is carefully sealed against rain and snow, and it’s also protected by an awning.
Mark Clipsham remodeled this grain bin to be a playroom and storage space.
