In this session Stephen and I will define some of the most current theory with regards to heat, air, and moisture movement within wall assemblies. We will demonstrate the necessity of having a basic understanding of the physics occurring across a building enevelope. We will also discuss the way that building geometries and assemblies can either work with or against each other , and the obvious effect these choices have with respect to building performance. This seminar is a MUST for anyone practicing natural building who does not understand the difference between absorption and adsorption. All kidding aside, for those who have an understanding of the principles, you will learn in this seminar how to construct healthier, longer-lasting buildings with less call-backs.
