    Hi Amy,

    We agree, we love the couches too. Unfortunately, we don't know where they came from - they were client-supplied.

    Sorry I can't help.

    Thanks for your prompt reply anyway, it is a beautiful space!

    Hi Julia, thanks for your question. That is a speaker in the front left corner (its twin is in the back of the picture next to the rear couch). They are Bang & Olufson speakers, the BeoLab 6002 model.

    You can just see a galvanised steel column between two of the windows, and outside on the deck. The windows themselves are Wester Red Cedar timber. The roof is supported on the steel columns, with steel beams connecting them to form portal frames. There is bulk insulation running across the roof between the beams and rafters.

    this photo looks like a thermal nightmare. the r-value of steel is nearly 0. those steel posts will get very cold when it is cold outside and i would expect that there would be some condensation at the posts. as to the steel beam, it is always better to insulate the beam from the outside so that it doesn't get cold.

    insulating a steel beam is a real challenge and it is better to insulate the beam from the outside to keep it from getting cold. i faced this very challenge and i had only about 1" for insulation. i ended up using aspen aerogel spaceloft insulation. to achieve an r-12 blanket covering, i ended up having to use three 10mm thick spaceloft blankets. spraying foam insulation on the steel beam is also a good idea, and while it helps, keep in mind that the main route for thermal bridging across the steel beam is going to be straight through the flanges where the foam is going to be thinnest.
