PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

The Journey... Some days you’re the pigeon. Some days you’re the statue. If you’re reading this, you’re one of us, and you get it. This business we’re in can be challenging at times, even though the rewards (call them happy clients) can make those challenges worth the effort. With that in mind, I decided that for my final message as your President I wanted to leave you with positive thoughts to take into the new year, pigeon thoughts, instead of the usual mundane thoughts about interest rates, escalating housing costs, and buyer frustrations of trying to raise enough money for down payments when salaries are not keeping up with cost-of-living increases, among other stress-inducing concerns. The following two-minute vacation worked for me. I hope it does for you. It’s called The Station, by Robert J. Hastings. Tucked away in our subconscious is an idyllic vision. We see ourselves on a long trip that spans the continent. We are traveling by train. Out the windows we drink in the passing scene of cars on nearby highways, of children waving at a crossing, of cattle grazing on a distant hillside, of row upon row of corn and wheat, of flatlands and valleys, of mountains and rolling hills, of city skylines and village halls. But uppermost in our minds is the final destination. Bands will be playing and flags waving. Once we get there our dreams will come true, and the pieces of our lives will fit together like a jigsaw puzzle. How restlessly we pace the aisles, damning the minutes for loitering---waiting, waiting, waiting for the station. “When we reach the station, that will be it!” we cry. “When I’m 18.” “When I buy a new Mercedes!”

President’s Message by HBA President Phil Klaus

“When I put the last kid through college.” “When I have paid off the mortgage!” “When I get the promotion.” “When I reach the age of retirement, I shall live happily ever after!” Sooner or later we must realize there is no station, no one place to arrive at once and for all. The true joy of life is the trip. The station is only a dream. It constantly outdistances us. “Relish the moment.” It isn’t the burdens of today that drive men mad. It is the regrets over yesterday and the fear of tomorrow. Regret and fear are twin thieves who rob us of today. So stop pacing the aisles and counting the miles. Instead, climb more mountains, eat more ice cream, go barefoot more often, swim more rivers, watch more sunsets, laugh more, cry less. Life must be lived as we go along. The station will come soon enough.

Thanks for allowing me to serve as your president during 2016. The journey has been my reward.

New Rules on Fall Protection Trigger height has been reduced to six feet By James Day

BUILDERS AND THEIR SUBCONTRACTORS are going to have to cope with some new fall protection standards in 2017. As a result of new federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration rules that Oregon builders are required to follow, the trigger height for fall protection will move from 10 feet to six feet as of Jan. 1. Also, beginning October 1, 2017, those using slide guards will be required to take additional fall protection measures. How significant will these changes be? “It kind of depends on the builder,” said David Davidson, safety management consultant for the Home Builders Association of Marion and Polk Counties. “For those working on single-story homes … it’s going to be a big deal for them. They have never had to worry about a trigger height for fall protection before.” Davidson said that the changeover “is not that difficult. It just had to be done.” Previously, Davidson said, the federal OSHA did not have a mandate on trigger height. But once the feds settled on six feet that standard became the rule in Oregon as well

(state rules must be at least as stringent as the federal ones, although they also can be more strict). Davidson said the new rules will affect roofers, siders and to some degree framers. And the new trigger height also will impact window installers. The new rules will require training and additional equipment, including harnesses, rope, rope grabs and lanyards. Those contractors using slide guards will have to add a harness system to meet the new code. Davidson said equipping an employee costs about $200, with training costs on top of that. “For small subcontractors it’s going to be kind of a big deal,” he said. “There will be teaching and training … a lot of stuff they haven’t done before.” Also, Davidson said, general contractors need to be on top of the situation to make sure their subcontractors are meeting the standards. Commercial contractors already have been working with the six-foot standard, Davidson said “and for them it’s no big deal. But for residential contractors, particularly the smaller ones, it is going to be a big deal.”

Davidson and the Home Builders Association have conducted four outreach sessions in Salem in an effort to get to the word out to area builders. The association also has mailed out handouts and sent emails with information to members. “But we’re still finding people that are surprised,” Davidson said. Enforcement will take place in accordance with normal OSHA inspections, with one exception, Davidson noted. If an inspector is driving by a job site where fall protection should be in place the inspector has the right to stop and take a look. But that inspection must focus solely on fall protection if the inspector is not visiting on their normal schedule. OSHA also can levy fines for repeat violations, with a maximum of $70,000. Davidson said that the problems must be termed “willful” before the sanctions reach that max level. After the federal mandate came down Oregon OSHA drafted the required changes to its rules in the summer of 2015. Hearings were held statewide in January 2016, with final approval taking place in March. Davidson said that members of the Home Builders Association served as an advisory group during the process.

Homebuyers Say They’d Pay More for a Home With All Gas Appliances By Carollyn Farrar, NW Natural Marketing Program Manager When it comes to the value of energy efficiency, new construction home buyers overwhelmingly prefer natural gas versus electricity to heat their homes and cook their food. And they are willing to pay more for it. A 2016 study completed by Market Strategies International. They surveyed consumers who recently bought or planned to buy single-family detached homes in NW Natural’s service territory in Portland, Salem and Vancouver. The findings: • Nearly 9 of 10 people ranked having a home with natural gas service as “important” to them. • The top two reasons homebuyers prefer natural gas is affordability followed by better for cooking, heats better and it’s a more efficient source of energy. • Given the choice between two otherwise identical single-family homes at the same selling price, 9 of 10 said they would pick the home with all natural gas appliances versus the home with all electric equipment. •Nine of 10 would choose the all-natural gas home – even if they had to pay $50,000 more fthan for a comparably outfitted, all-electric home at an average price of $381,000. • The higher the home price, the higher the preference for gas. At home values of $600,000 or more, 96 percent said they would spend an extra $50,000 To learn more about the study and results check out https://www.nwnatural.com/Residential/Preference

Green Building HOWARD ASCH

The “Inside” Story One of the available energy code options is to put the ducts and air handler inside the building thermal envelope. Choosing this option can be a simple way to comply with the code and save a lot of energy.

lowered and covered with the rest of the house. This method costs a little extra for framing the drop ceiling and the extra layer of board. The resulting ceiling is typically 7 feet high, but hardly noticeable in a hallway.

Ducts leak. They leak both heat and air. If they are outside the thermal envelope the heat is wasted. Not only that, a duct leak outside the building envelope can pressurize or depressurize the house, depending on whether the leak is on the return side or supply side, and that will create more infiltrating air that has to be conditioned. That can be big.1

A third option is to create soffits to run ducts through and design them as an architectural feature. This takes more material and time to finish, but can be a nice feature on an upscale house.

But how do we get the ductwork inside without creating an industrial look or costing more than your kid’s education? It’s simple—we plan for it. Here are ways it can be done: Roof trusses can be ordered with a raised central open portion where ducts can be easily run.2 The ceiling will look just like a regular ceiling because the space created takes up what would otherwise be attic area. The air handler is centrally located and ducts run to the various rooms through this space. Insulation covers it just as it would normally cover the ceiling. It may add 5% to the cost of trusses plus extra to install the lid inside the truss.

The great thing about any of these methods is that it really doesn’t impact the design or features of the house and an existing plan can be easily adapted. Pairing ducts inside with a high efficiency heating system can be a cost-effective way to meet energy efficiency requirements.3 1 Infiltration can increase up to 300 times because of duct leakage according to the US Department of Energy. That can cause a 10% to 20% increase in heating and cooling energy use, along with a 20% to 50% decrease in heating and cooling equipment efficiency. That is huge. 2

These are, amazingly enough, called plenum trusses.

3 You probably already choose the high efficiency heating system anyway, so relocating it from the garage to an interior space will add little cost.

Another option is to drop the ceiling of a central hallway as a duct run. Drywall is installed on the bottom truss cord before the ducts are installed, then the hall ceiling is
