Still in love with this collaboration. So glad you are enjoying your home, @natalie_marotta! As always, thanks a million @bevelandesign!
Designing for Decarbonization-enjoyed sharing our accumulated knowledge and lessons learned with our colleagues today.
Cannot wait to SEE the beautiful styling and photography of @natalie_marotta as she shoots her own home renovation. We were so thrilled to work on this great project with her and her family and @bevelandesign .
Better Bungalow Update—
Basement retrofit done right-this photo sums it up: below slab insulation and vapor barrier, turned up to insulate slab edge, dimple mat tucked down to drain to new drain tile, brick wall will be tuckpointed and then sprayed with a Visconn smart air and vapor barrier. Vapor barrier under slab will be trimmed and sealed to dimple mat. Interior studs walls will be framed and covered with Intello smart membrane, then overlapped by the membrane that is extending down from the wall assembly above and taped for continuous membrane performance. Stud cavities then will receive dense-packed cellulose insulation. Stay tuned for updates of this 'inside the walls' critical assembly performance piece.
