Home Tour with

Buck Robertson Contracting

If you would like to do a home tour of “Roberta Ranch” and follow the journey, stay tuned to this page and come see the final product when completed.

Please leave us some contact information so we are able to set up appointments (depending on how covid restrictions are at the time of completion.)

If would like to come and take a look at the project while it is being built, we can set that up as well.

Part 1: Site walk

We take a tour of “Roberta Ranch”  and along the way we talk about iron pins and property lines. We discuss a little about site conditions and how this may affect one’s project. Jordan had the opportunity to have a little fun with our new toy the drone DJI mini 2.

We are working on the next video now and will be released soon.

Part 2: Slabs & Succulents

In this video we share the beginning stages, from excavation to formation to foundation, as well as our little succulent wall (an added feature).

Part 3: Stacked Framing & Shou Sugi Ban

In this video, we talk about the importance of “stack framing” (or “advanced framing”); and touch base on air barriers and vapor barriers, insulation, as well as brace walls. We also share what we used to set our signature Shou Sugi Ban cedar posts.

Part 4: Installing SIGA House Wrap to Window Bucks

In this video, we talk about and demonstrate how to install our SIGA building envelope or “house wrap” – also known as WRB (Weather Resistant Barrier) or Air Barrier. We had our SIGA rep, Andrew, on site to show us the proper way of installing the house wrap and the best strategies on how to use the SIGA tape.

Part 5: Window Bucks & Exterior Doors

In this video, we talk about how and why we installed our window bucks; we talk a little bit more about our air barrier; and we show off a new tool we got to use from Bissett (www.bissettfasteners.ca).

Part 6: Halo Exterra Foam & Rainscreen Install

In this video, we talk about Halo Exterra foam and why it is important in preventing thermal bridging and how it helps with permeability; and we also talk about the importance of Rainscreen and its advantages in the building envelope.
