Our first “Water, Air and Thermal Continuous Control Layers” course

SEON building science course “Water, Air, and Thermal Continuous Control Layers.”  Three different wall systems were constructed highlighting those that are economical and efficient as well as those that carry the least amount of embodied energy. Following satisfactory completion of a few more requirements these members will be the first carpenters to be awarded SEON’s Certification as a High Performance Builder.
