Hey Doc,
The second coat of 'mud' is going on today. Hope to have it painted by the end of the week. That's if Ike keeps moving on, right now it's so humid nothing will dry.

Al

Looks great! What is 'wet-wall' exactly?

What Al is referring to is an old way of building walls. It involves nailing a metal messwork to the studs and applying "mud", a cement-like material. Then you apply a finish coat of drywall "mud" to that surface....and there you have a real wall as opposed to a gypsum "drywall" wall

Hey all,
Sorry the photos were too large?
I'll try to resize them ASAP.
A wet wall is a wall of a corrugated "cardboard like" material that has water dripping down on it so it stays wet. It is very stiff and does not sag.
The water runs down the "cardboard" and what does not evaporate collects in a trough and is pumped back to the top again. There is a sump that has a float valve in it so that there is a constant supply of water.

The exhaust fans on the opposite wall pull the air through the wet wall and as the air passes through the wet wall it cools the air and moistens it at the same time.
I have seen them allot in greenhouses down here in Florida.
I'll take some photos of the wet wall material before the are installed. the are in sections about a foot or so wide.
I'll post some more photos as soon as I figure out what size they need to be.
AHAB

Cool, that is also very interesting. I haven't seen that before, not sure with the drought we would be allowed to use it but if the water is recycled it shouldn't matter.

Thanks for the info, I look forward to the pictures.
