Ok, there's cool, then there's REALLY COOL - In a visit across the pond my window friends @makrowin_eu showed me a HIGHEST PERFORMANCE detail they have used numerous times.  In Europe,  masonry frames in lieu of wood frames is very common. We all understand that masonry poses some thermaldynamic challenges. The solution? Put everything insulation, including the windows outside....pic 1 shows the suspended window from the inside. Pic 2 in another shot fron the inside. Basically the window us suspended about 8

Ok, there's cool, then there's REALLY COOL - In a visit across the pond my window friends @makrowin_eu showed me a HIGHEST PERFORMANCE detail they have used numerous times. In Europe, masonry frames in lieu of wood frames is very common. We all understand that masonry poses some thermaldynamic challenges. The solution? Put everything insulation, including the windows outside....pic 1 shows the suspended window from the inside. Pic 2 in another shot fron the inside. Basically the window us suspended about 8" out in front of the masonry frame. Even the inside face of the window frame is a couple inches outside of the exterior face of masonry. Pic 3 shows the view from the outside. Pic 4 shows why...because rigid insulation will be installed outside of the masonry. Pretty much takes out all the thermal bridging and leaves you with a building with a great " sweater" ......Sooooo Cool...Long Live Our Buildings #longliveourbuildings #lovewhatyoudo #windows #buildingscience #buildingahouse #highperformance #highperformancehomes #passivehaus #passivehouse #windowinstallation #windowinstall #windowinstaller #exteriordesign #exteriors #rigidinsulation #thermalbreak #thermalbridge #thermalbridging ...

MAKROWIN windows are European Tilt Turn windows that I have used a number of times. They are offerred as wood framed, and wood framed aluminium clad. The frames are furniture quality, and performance to match. All their wooden frames are laminated. These photos are an upgraded version. In the laminations they insert a layer of cork. The cork acts as an improvement to the frame as a thermal break. Basically making great windows even greater. Please understand, usually in windows, the frames are the worst performing part, so this certainly challenges that performance......Long Live Our Buildings. @makrowin_eu #windows #windowperformance #passivehouse #passivehaus #highperformancehomes #highperformance #tripleglazed #tripleglazedwindows #igu #thermalbridge #thermalbridging #thermalbreak #longliveourbuildings #lovewhatyoudo.

A lot of sequencing here. We'll go with underslab insulation throughout, class 2 vapor retarder, then 3

A lot of sequencing here. We'll go with underslab insulation throughout, class 2 vapor retarder, then 3" of concrete with fiber. These elevations will result in the garage slab (generally 5") to end up at the same elevation as the main level to eliminate a step. #6339PioneerBuildersProject #builder #buildersofinsta #buildersofig #construction #contractorsofinsta #developer #generalcontractor #keepcraftalive #themoderncraftsmen #newconstruction #design #structure #plumbing #concrete #foam #insulation #buildingscience #thermalbreak #thermalbridge #planning #logistics ...

We are using this product on a few of our projects right now as part of a continuous insulation system to help reduce the cost of heating and cooling a building by eliminating thermal bridging. Very cool👌

Lots of windows make for a beautiful home. But they add a whole lot of thermal bridging potential in a tightly insulated building envelope. @kipnisarch chose to install their @marvinwindows with @thermalbuck.windowbuck, to break the #thermalbridge around windows and doors, and prevent moisture damage in the building envelope. -

kadawittfeldarchitektur has built a modern energy efficiency center on the campus of Hochschule Niederrhein in Mönchengladbach, a city in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. The zero emission building is constructed to Passive House standards which require thermal bridge free design, superior windows, ventilation with heat recovery, quality insulation and airtight construction.

Ceiling! It feels good to get some #finalproduct finishes in 🚌
...
We ran our 12v wiring this past week, and the ceiling insulation kept falling, so it was time to put up the ceiling 🙌 This step is super exciting because it makes the space look more finished! We bought 1/2” thick primed #shiplap for the ceiling and walls. It went up smoothly and really highlights the curve of the ceiling 😍
...
We used blocks of scrap plywood on the ribs of the ceiling to attach the shiplap to. This adds a spacer for wires to pass by without needing to drill a hole through the steal ribs. And it completes our mission to eliminate the thermal bridge by creating a thermal break. You don’t want a metal screw directly into the metal rib passing all the way into the interior of the bus. This creates a path for moisture to travel. By screwing the block into the rib, then nailing into the block, there is no metal-to-metal contact and we break the moisture conduction path or #thermalbridge
...
Next step: install the ceiling lights and speakers, and start running our plumbing

Despite a wet and windy night we had a great turnout to the official launch of the Fern, winner of multiple architecture and sustainability awards, as well as being the only certified multi-residential Passivhaus building in the southern hemisphere! 
Thank you to everyone who made The Lord Mayor Clover Moore’s launch of the Fern such a success!

The secret to Holz100 indoor comfort is the wood we use: Moonwood, harvested during the waning moon, has more bound water in its interior. This means that it contracts more tightly during the drying process and only shrinks to a marginal degree; proven to be highly durable.

The Fern is Finished!

The Lord Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore will officially launch the Fern 5PM, Tuesday, 17 September 2019.
A presentation and tour of the completed building will follow.
We'd love you to come along!

Flying walls at The Bunkhouse 😁

Ground floor walls going up, next the roof area which will give the clients views of the Wye Valley. Looking forward to getting the picture windows framed out and taking a peak out across the landscape.

At Passiframe a lot of work goes in to the planning and calculation of our timber frame builds but we also put a lot of thought and research in to the aesthetics and finishing materials. Power floated concrete floor curing nicely as a floor finish on this project
