We will look at real-life examples of building envelope failures resulting from ignorance of building science principles. The range of examples will include common code violations in standard construction to error and omission and the dangers of cherry-picking Passive House Standard means and methods. We will discuss ways to avoid these errors of judgment, and as Joe Lstiburek would say- “Don’t be stupid! There is no such thing as a free Thermodynamic Lunch.”
