My career in the building trades started as a job site broom-pusher in high school in my hometown of Bristol, VT. For twenty-odd years I wore a belt as a frame-to-finish carpenter (with a couple trips around the world and some college thrown in there to spice things up). I began swinging a hammer for – Silver Maple Construction/Zone 6 Energy in 2012 and five years later they sent me to get my BPI certifications as a Building Analyst and Envelope Professional. Hundreds and hundreds of blower door tests later, I keep busy working for Silver Maple Construction/Zone 6 Energy as a building envelope consultant, certified Building Enclosure Commissioning (BECx) Authority, and AeroBarrier installer.
Work responsibilities include: design review & consulting; specification writing
assistance; residential and commercial whole-building air tightness testing; handheld and drone-mounted thermal imaging; on-site progress testing and field verifications including pressurized fogging as well as fenestration air leakage and water penetration testing.
When it comes right down to it, I aspire to be sort of like Friar Tuck in the Sherwood Forest of modern building science. I also play the banjo.
