Brian Hayes loves building, and as a part of Bellwether Craftsmen, a member-held LLC, he's pushing the envelope to create sustainable, long-lasting, healthy, durable assemblies. On this central Vermont project from 2018, Brian utilized the 2x Framing Smart Enclosure wall assembly guidelines in order to create a vapor-open, airtight wall system made of sustainable materials. The end result is a building made nearly entirely from wood, but done in a way to make it long-lasting, optimized for comfort, health and safety. The assembly is simple. From inside to exterior it's: interior finish, service cavity, INTELLO X airtight smart vapor retarder taped with TESCON VANA, 2x6 wall with dense pack cellulose, 1/2" sheathing, Gutex MULTITHERM wood fiber board insulation WRB and insulation in one, rainscreen, exterior finish.
