• 6 mil vapour barrier ensures continuous, completely sealed envelope
• Floor sheathing glued and screwed to floor joists
• Acoustical sealant between walls, floor & roof eliminates air leakage
• Insulated electrical boxes complete with vapour barrier on exterior walls

Structurally Sound

• Kiln dried lumber with 19% moisture content or less
• 2x3 cross bridging between floor joists
• Double perimeter floor joists
• Pre-Engineered roof trusses

Insulation Techniques
• Fiberglass insulation installed from the outside eliminates air gaps on the cold side of the insulation
• Insulating the roof from the outside in before sheathing is installed guarantees the best coverage
