Q. I am a contractor in Northern Indiana and build two to three homes per year and have always respected your involvement in the construction industry. I am a young construction carpenter and I have three guys who work for me. I try to get it right (I have workers insurance for my employees) and look forward to pursuing a long career in construction and supporting clients. I’ve read a lot about zero-rated building practices and I’m committed to creating the best thermal quality my clients want to afford. I haven’t started building double walls yet, but have stopped building slabs on ground style foundations so that I can get a better thermal barrier to the outside. How do you extend the vapor barrier to get past the foundation? – Sean of DeKalb County
A. Sean, I like your way of thinking and technologies are changing in the building sciences. I know most contractors don’t think of construction as a science, but it is.
