Last week I made my first site visit to the mountains of North Carolina to start performance testing the #OffGridHomestead. This is an uber-homebuild with LG Squared Architects (now also LG Cubed Builders) and Chris Laumer-Giddens has a lot to show us, even at this rough in stage, with saws running and tractors rumbling around.
Home performance articles and stories from the field with internationally respected building forensics guru Corbett Lunsford at the Building Performance Workshop. Hear new episodes of the Building Performance Podcast, see new videos from the Home Performance YouTube channel, and learn all about how diagnostic testing (more than an 'Energy Audit') can make home improvement and new home construction a proven process!
