Things are moving forward at the Abrahamson Net-Zero House.
The dense pack cellulose insulation has been installed throughout and we were on hand to inspect the work.
An infrared-camera is an indispensable tool to help ensure that the building envelope is constant. The difference between indoor and outdoor temperature (delta T) enables us to pinpoint areas of thermal bridging and insulation voids. If problem areas are found, we can strategize ways to mitigate the situation.
We do this periodically throughout construction, as it is easier to fix these potential problem areas before the home is finished.
Thankfully in this case the insulation crew did a great job – no voids except under one window.
Tim is now installing the 4” of exterior EPS foam and the roofers will be by soon to install the metal standing seam roof. The windows have been ordered from Germany and will be installed sometime in April.
Check back soon for more updates.
