||Vapor-open Larsen truss walls. From the inside out, the assembly is as follows:
-Gypsum Wall Board
-2x4 stud wall 24" O.C. filled with Formaldehyde-free fiberglass insulation
-Advantech Zip sheathing sealed as class one vapor barrier and primary air sealing layer.
-11 7/8" wood I-joists aligned with studs and fastened through sheathing. Cavity filled with dense packed cellulose.
-WRB. Siga Majvest, taped and sealed as secondary air barrier.
-Cross strapping. To retain the insulation and create a rainscreen ventilation space.
-Siding. Torrified Poplar and Fiber cement Panels
