This plan set shows you how to build glass walled sunrooms with a glass roof, large site built skylights in a standard roof, and large fixed glass windows anywhere in the house. The plans make use of inexpensive double glazed tempered glass panels (commonly available for sliding glass doors).
A key to this simple glazing system is a special aluminum-coated butyl rubber sealing tape designed for severe waterproofing conditions(sample included with your plans). This tape was developed for sealing modular buildings on the North Slope oil fields of Alaska. It allows you to build large leak-proof skylights and window walls using standard wood working tools. The system is easy to build and is forgiving of errors. It is also less costly than commercial glazing systems. Plans include a sample of the tape and how to order by phone or Internet. It comes in standard 3 and 6 widths and can be special ordered wider if needed. The 3 width is used for the details in the plans.
