URL: http://www.buildingscience.com/housesthatwork/default.htm#Hygro
Description: Building envelopes and mechanical systems should be designed for a specific hygro-thermal region, rain exposure and interior climate. Design recommendations, based on extensive experience, are provided as a starting point for a thoughtful approach for designing a specific house in a specific location and climate, often for a specific purpose. Explanations for envelope assemblies and moisture-related risks are discussed for each climate. Includes case studies.
