The Quirkiness of Detail

George Fritz – Principle of Horizon Builders

He is building mostly masonry clad houses with wood framing and this is one detail of his favorite wall section. 2×6 Exterior Walls with roughly 3? of closed cell foam (2 lb density)

WRB is Fluid Applied Tremco ExoAir 230 which also is a fantastic air barrier. Exterior rigid foam – 2 layers which have a diamond pattern carved by his CNC machine for a drainage plane against the WRB and against the cladding.

Heckmann Pos-I-Tie Masonry anchors that screw through the foam into the 3/4? sheathing (not necessary to hit studs).

Stone Veneer is last with "U" shaped Heckmann anchors in the mortar bed Amazing system, absolutely amazing.
