Turning a 1927 1,200 sf home into a 3,500 sf home in under four months is no easy feat, let alone in the dead of winter. Achieving 1 ACH with over half the home intact and certifying GreenStar Gold, upped the ante. The house boasts no-VOC finishes, cutting-edge smart home technology, cabinetry from Finland that uses 49% less material and a wall that is so resilient we dubbed it “The Awesome Wall.” This session will review the materials, systems, and process used to achieve our goals. Drawings and specifications for wall sections included, because they are... awesome!
