The vertical rain screen (to allow proper ventilation behind the siding), consists of 2" rips of Zipwall, applied every 24"; in conjunction with horizontally applied Cor-a-vent (to reduce pest intrusion), at the top and bottom of the walls. All systems work in concert to provide an air tight home that keeps the inside comfortable and everything else outside where it belongs!

Both north and south sillcocks are sealed with Ziptape and secured in a standard sized j-block, to match the siding.
All of the electrical work for the 200 AMP service panel was completed and inspected in late March; a joint effort well-done. The main cables were installed after inverting the panel, allowing a lot more room inside (with an okay from the electrical inspector BEFORE doing the install). Jacki completed all of the calculations, and designed the electrical layout for the entire house. Both Kevin and Jacki pulled all of the wires and labelled each one to eliminate confusion after drywall. Kevin did an awesome job wiring the panel, and creating ample space for the future inverter (solar panels).
