ITEM DESCRIPTION:


This is the  LumenHAUS Solar House: https://www.icloud.com/coretypes/ios/com.adobe.pdf_128@1x.png

The LumenHaus Solar House was completed around 2009. If the link to the detailed specs won't open, please email Ron Barrett at ronald@vt.edu and we will forward you the link. This house was built to be able to transport and includes the front attachment and tandem bogie. Buyer will be responsible for hiring a trucking company and all required permits for transport. Along with the house, the deck and ponds are also included as is all the furnishings inside. This structure has been used very little over the last several years mainly for meetings. When taking pictures, we noticed where there was a small roof leak, please refer to the pictures. Once the sale has been awarded, the department will have all plumbing and electrical disconnected from the structure, after that all removal will be the responsibility of the buyer. We highly encourage all interested bidders to schedule a site visit with Jeff Snider (540-231-5257 or jeffs@vt.edu) to better understand the complexities of its removal from campus as there is some construction taking place nearby.

Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: Do all the original features (tech) still work? (6/14/22 11:20 AM)
A: We are trying to get information but not having much luck. Will update if/when we receive anything. (6/21/22 7:02 AM)
Q: Could you please give the over all dimensions of the house in transport configuration. Also are the ponds and deck movable. (6/20/22 3:12 PM)
A: If you would email me me at ronald@vt.edu I will forward you the link provided by the department with all the drawings. (6/21/22 7:01 AM)
Q: Was the suspension exposed to outside elements and uncovered, and due to that, are the brakes and the drums rusty from sitting? Are the tires 10 years or older? I’m concerned they wouldn’t pass a DOT inspection in order to haul it without replacing them. Our contracted hauler is requesting this info also. (7/11/22 11:12 AM)
A: Yokohama 35846-03 by 103275/70r225 This is what was on the side of the tire per department. Since neither Surplus or Architecture have access to a tractor there would be no way for us to answer your concerns about rusty drums. The bogie was stored up against another building to get it out of the way and was exposed minimal weather per department. Hope this helps. (7/11/22 3:31 PM)
