Basement Construction Photos!

Oh, this project has completely taken over my life - and I'm loving it.  For this basement renovation, we sprayed 1" of Icynene insulation directly to the concrete wall and then offset the framing inside of it.  This detail will act as a vapor retarder, eliminate thermal bridging between the studs and the concrete and give us a R19 insulation value- well exceeding energy code.  The Building Science Corporation has great information on this and other high performance wall details. The mechanical ductwork is in and framing is almost complete.  Electrical and lighting started today and we're moving along so quickly.
