This "SpanDeck" Parking Garage Type Engineered Concrete Structure (55'x60'x11') is "clear span" (no load bearing walls). It's tucked into a hillside of what it's builder and original owner Fred Wurster describes as "the most densely compacted clay based soil I'd ever excavated" . Surrounded by mature Colorado Pines & Walnut Trees on a very private 6/10 acre lot on a quiet cul-de-sac with only 20 homes just off the 96th Street @ Fallcreek roundabout. Fred cherry picked this lot for it's view and water depth. Fred was the first to build on Geist in 1981.
There are 6 heat sources.. (7 if you count the heated drive)
1) The conventional Gas HVAC system like most homes have.
2) A Gas fired boiler with radiant delivery at the base boards.
3) An old iron Vigilant wood buring stove in the 51'x17' great room (heats the entire home).
4) The fireplace in 27'x18' family room (has 3 powered vents, also will heat the entire home).
5) The 50+ windows on the south side of the home (it's 10 degrees outside as I write this and my great room is a blaze in sun light warmth).
6) The radiant heat (and coolness in summer) stored in the enormous amount of thermal mass. Concrete: 6" floors, 8" side walls, 12" ceiling, 40'x8'x4' fireplace, and there's a non load bearing 60'x8" masonry interior wall that entombs the bedrooms. The two levels are separated by 12" of concrete, 24" of dead space with 10" of blown cellulose & 4" of rigid foam. This structure is a tank!
