We are designing post frame homes that are more affordable than a typical custom build, but that are also quite energy efficient and healthy.
We are patent-pending on the envelope technique we implement, which allows for exposed structure on the interior and should maintain the building for 100+ years by keeping the structure and sheathing warm, dry, and air-tight.
We think this envelope method performs better than anything else being built, and has yet to be otherwise implemented with post frame technology.
The walls might look inside-out, but we are using walls that avoid any sort of gypsum wallboard. The studs are laid bare, whitewashed. Atop them is a plywood (formaldehyde-free) and sound clip sandwich to isolate sound transmission between spaces. We love the look of exposed structure done well, along with the light and sound-baffling qualities.
