    Do you know if the slab is post tensioned?

    Peter, no, the slab is not post-tensioned. It's partly slab on grade and light weight concrete on framing over the basement areas. Happy mucking!

    Maximizing Light in Salt Lake CityWho lives here: Christi and Trent Thorn; daughters Nila (age 9), Esme (7) and Dahli (4); and dogs Wallace and GaruLocation: Sugarhouse neighborhood of Salt Lake City“Our old home, a 1909 bungalow, was a Hobbit hole where light went to die,” says Christi. “We were determined to have skylights and large windows facing south and east to best light up the home.” The Thorn family’s new home is about as far from a Hobbit hole as you can get — the main space is illuminated by five 4- by 16-foot windows and ample skylights.

    Big sky blue in Utah. Christi and Trent Thorn’s Salt Lake City home has a wide-open floor plan, and it needed defining. One large accent wall painted a vibrant blue immediately draws the eye and helps bring focus to the space.Paint: Utah Sky, Benjamin MooreSee the rest of this homeMore: 12 Tried and True Paint Colors for Your WallsMy Houzz is a series in which we visit and photograph creative, personality-filled homes and the people who inhabit them.

    “Natural light flowing throughout and illuminating with the right level of intensity was one of the biggest directives,” recalls Christi. “Our old home, a 1909 bungalow, was a Hobbit hole where light went to die. We were determined to have skylights and large windows facing south and east to best light up the home.” The main room is illuminated by numerous skylights and five 4- by 16-foot windows. Flanking the windows are what are known as sandwich panel concrete walls, which architect Matt Swindel describes as “4 inches of EPS rigid insulation in the center, and 4 inches of concrete on the exterior.”The assembly “allowed us to insulate the wall and have the concrete exposed on the exterior and interior of the house,” Swindel says.
