Exciting to see some exterior insulation going up on the new engineering buildings at URI. I assume the furring strips are not thermally broken though. For those of you interested in thermally broken furring strips, one can use @cascadiawindows cascadia clips.

Lots of windows make for a beautiful home. But they add a whole lot of thermal bridging potential in a tightly insulated building envelope. @kipnisarch chose to install their @marvinwindows with @thermalbuck.windowbuck, to break the #thermalbridge around windows and doors, and prevent moisture damage in the building envelope. -

Ok, there's cool, then there's REALLY COOL - In a visit across the pond my window friends @makrowin_eu showed me a HIGHEST PERFORMANCE detail they have used numerous times.  In Europe,  masonry frames in lieu of wood frames is very common. We all understand that masonry poses some thermaldynamic challenges. The solution? Put everything insulation, including the windows outside....pic 1 shows the suspended window from the inside. Pic 2 in another shot fron the inside. Basically the window us suspended about 8

Put everything insulation, including the windows outside....pic 1 shows the suspended window from the inside. Pic 2 in another shot fron the inside. Basically the window us suspended about 8" out in front of the masonry frame. Even the inside face of the window frame is a couple inches outside of the exterior face of masonry. Pic 3 shows the view from the outside. Pic 4 shows why...because rigid insulation will be installed outside of the masonry. Pretty much takes out all the thermal bridging and leaves you with a building with a great " sweater" ......Sooooo Cool...Long Live Our Buildings #longliveourbuildings #lovewhatyoudo #windows #buildingscience #buildingahouse #highperformance #highperformancehomes #passivehaus #passivehouse #windowinstallation #windowinstall #windowinstaller #exteriordesign #exteriors #rigidinsulation #thermalbreak #thermalbridge #thermalbridging ...

Arkit's Kate Nason will be in Sydney next week to discuss successful strategies that have lead to mandatory regulation and incentives for implementing Passive House principles and how we in the industry can influence this shift. ⠀
.⠀
She has just returned from a research trip to North America and Europe undertaken as part of for the #Byera Hadley Grant which is awarded by the NSW Architects Registration Board
.
Join her 2 other builders and a PH Designer who have projects in the works to share and learn from your peers at the ⠀
1st Passive House Exchange event in Sydney 26 June, 6-8pm in Surry Hills.
2nd one will be held in Melbourne in the coming month - stay tuned for updates here: @passivehouseaustalia ⠀

REPOST of the upper wall / window sill detail @cm_concepts . Here the wall changes in width from the 20

REPOST of the upper wall / window sill detail @cm_concepts . Here the wall changes in width from the 20" of aall hung trusses to the 10" of framed was all with exterior rigid.

MAKROWIN windows are European Tilt Turn windows that I have used a number of times. They are offerred as wood framed, and wood framed aluminium clad. The frames are furniture quality, and performance to match. All their wooden frames are laminated. These photos are an upgraded version. In the laminations they insert a layer of cork. The cork acts as an improvement to the frame as a thermal break. Basically making great windows even greater. Please understand, usually in windows, the frames are the worst performing part, so this certainly challenges that performance......Long Live Our Buildings. @makrowin_eu #windows #windowperformance #passivehouse #passivehaus #highperformancehomes #highperformance #tripleglazed #tripleglazedwindows #igu #thermalbridge #thermalbridging #thermalbreak #longliveourbuildings #lovewhatyoudo.

We are using this product on a few of our projects right now as part of a continuous insulation system to help reduce the cost of heating and cooling a building by eliminating thermal bridging. Very cool👌

Mould! The silent killer... If you're concerned about indoor air quality then you need to think about mould risk. In this instance I was checking the house for possible thermal bridges and so began with the corners which were hitting 13°c so at risk of condensation. Spotted an external corner with loads of stuff.. stuffed into it and thought I'd better have a look. Wow! It was hairy. 
Corners are nearly always going to be risky areas (this was traditional solid wall, 9 inch) so you must make sure airflow is good.
You also need to think about where airflow is coming from in your house - 'natural ventilation' if pulling damp air and mould spores from crawl spaces and disused chimneys is NOT good ventilation!

Diagraming cold drafts in our house and trying to keep our pipes from freezing this winter.  I’ve always loved diagrams and the strange abstraction that arises out of an earnest attempt to visually depict something ridiculously complex. #draftyhouse #frozenpipes #rvalue #thermalbridge #diagrams #drawn #handdrawn #interiorexterior #home #housedrawing #interpretation #pictorialspace #abstraction #dailydrawing #diarycomics #pghhomes.
