PATH Tech Sets
PATH's Tech Sets are a new resource, released quarterly, that provides builders and homeowners direction in selecting innovative technologies and implementing them in a systems approach.
The second PATH Tech Set, "Durable Building Envelope Details for New Construction or Additions," shows builders and homeowners how to improve the durability of a building envelope--the foundation, walls and roof that separates conditioned and unconditioned spaces.
Also, check out this worksheet and durability checklist to guide you through the system-based approach for a durable building envelope.
Previous Tech Set
Tech Set No. 1: "Resource Efficient Plumbing" shows how to decrease the cost of construction and maintenance by promoting effective systems integration of the water distribution and used water (greywater) recycling network.
