6x2 insulated Wall

Note: Allows for a 50% increase in Insulation, to 140mm,  with a 6x2 wall. 

The larger thickness of wall contributes to the 300% increase in structural integrity.

Vaulted ceiling  

Note: Air gap above insulation. 

Not seen are the EEH roof vents and exclusive micro-perforated & vented Aluminium Soffit which allows air to circulate in the cavity, stopping insects, cooling the roof in summer, keeping insulation dry in Winter.

Tyvek wrapped home, prior to finished siding

A micro-ventilated house wrap, when combined with the EEH 13, plywood exterior sheathing, reduces wind permeation improving insulation effectiveness.

Together with the 13mm plywood sheathing, his means EEH homes are as happy in or out of the wind. It prevents wind from getting into the insulation, effectively nullifying its capability
