You’ve seen EcoCor’s Passive House panels under construction in the shop and you’ve seen the wall panels being set on site. Here’s a look at how EcoCor buttons up the roof system.
JLC travels to the Maine woods to see Jesper Kruse and the crew of Maine Passive House frame a wood I-joist roof with intersecting steep and shallow pitches.
Tim Uhler puts a battery-powered DeWalt framing gun through its paces.
A template simplifies the math for the hybrid frame.
An airtight "puff jacket" achieves near Passive House levels.
Strapping serves many purposes both for framers, as well as for many of the subs who follow.
Mounted behind the deck ledger, Deck2Wall spacers promote air circulation and prevent debris from collecting.
JLC travels to the coastal town of Blue Hill, Maine, to watch EcoCor Design/Build set a panelized Passive House in six days.
To ensure a waterproof installation, use adhesive between layers of waterproofing materials and pay close attention to corners and intersections.
