Design complete, on with pricing and permits

I have forgotten about the travel trailer nightmare, its time to get this plan in progress to get building permits. I believe I have found a structural engineer though David R. Holl. I’ve got my brother Scott Schwinghamer for the plumbing, found out pouring concrete for the slab and foundation costs 5.00 per sq. ft. which is reasonable. The foam wall and roof panels are costing about 11,000 plus, the structural coating will cost 8000. Not bad for a super energy efficient house of the future.

So now we have the shell built with plumbing and in floor heating. Its time now to get prices for the 11 doors and 23 windows, double or triple pane of course. I would also like to have most windows to open in some fashion.
