After two decades Joseph Lstiburek has re-written and updated the classic “Builder’s Guide to Cold Climates. It belongs in every builder’s, architect's, contractor's and code official's library. It covers the principles and practices of residential construction. It includes all of the revolutionary changes to construction since the the first energy crisis…advanced framing, unvented-conditioned attics and crawlspaces, ICF construction, SIP construction, spray polyurethane foam, continuous exterior insulation, externally/internally insulated basements and slabs, frost protected foundations, double wall construction, controlled ventilation systems - ERV’s vs HRV’s, case studies, net zero assemblies and more in a guide with over 450 full color figures and tables in 23 chapters and 460 pages from a world renowned expert.
