Green Building Episode 5: Using Liquid House Wrap and Recycled Blown In Insulation
This short film is Episode 5 of Peckham Architecture’s 11-part documentary series on how to construct a green building for energy efficiency and a lower carbon footprint. In this episode, an exterior liquid house wrap is applied to the structural insulated panels in Peckham Architecture’s LEED Platinum home headquarters. Inside, blown in insulation made of cellulose from recycled materials is installed for attic insulation.
This green building is Missouri’s first Passive House Institute US (PHIUS) Certified structure. Solar panels and super insulation make our passive house net-positive, which means that it produces more electricity than it consumes.
Our headquarters has also been featured in the Columbia Business Times and Columbia Missourian.
