What is seen on the outside of the building is an air sealing product called WET-FLASH that has been donated by our friends at Building Envelope Innovations. This is a role-on product that seals the walls off and limits air travel through the envelope while still allowing the assembly to dry and not hold moisture.
The insulation installed on the foundation wall is two inch rigid and is fastened to the stem wall with deck screws and fender washers. The walls are covered with two layers of ¾” thick R MAX rigid insulation. The two layers are installed so the seams of the insulation are overlapped both horizontally and vertically.
This is a wonderful project and students are very excited to be a part of it. The web site will be updated on a weekly basis to keep people informed about progress.
