Building Materials and Techniques
Standard building materials have evolved over the years to become more sustainable. Many types of insulation are becoming available from cotton and denim batt insulation and spray foam insulation. Traditional framing and insulating techniques have also evolved to using advanced framing, structural insulated panels (SIPs), insulated concrete forms (ICFs). See below for more information on building materials and techniques, such as advanced framing, insulated concrete forms, structural insulated panels, passive solar design, and insulation.
