One thought on “Pouring the insulated raft”

  1. HI we are looking at a small scale version of your base, can you tell be what thickness of concrete you put on top of the UFH pepes ? We built a Log House 9 years ago but the base was a concrete slab, UFH insulation on top (with pipes) then a slef levelling screed 60mm thick. We are building a new SIPS house but looking at similar founds to yours but just wondering about thickneses
