On Call Engineer support
I run a small hotel in coastal south Texas, mostly renting cabins weekly. Simplestayweekly.com
I have air flow issues and need support and advice on how to fix them as well as advice on future construction.
We’re basically building the cabins ourselves, 12×24 pier and beam construction. Metal roof, smart panel siding, 2×4 walls. The shell is fully windstorm engineered and approved. The interior I’ve been building out myself like a tiny house. R13 fiberglass batts in the wall and R30 Batts in the attic space. I’m sure that the attics don’t have enough airflow and I’ve just had to pull one down in a smaller cabin to find mildew.
In the next few months we will begin building 50 additional cabins. I want to build them “right” out the gate vs fixing issues down the road.
I also have a mobile home with moisture issues too.
My need is a person/firm that I can call who can tell me best building practice going forward and how to fix my current problems. I don’t necessarily need building plans although I’m not against that either. I’m happy to pay hourly or by the job. But again, the vast majority of our conversations will probably be an hour long phone call once every other month or so. Ideally none once all the problems are fixed and plans are solid.
