Patio slabs, porch slabs, walks, and driveways sloped ≥ 0.25 in. per ft. away from home to edge of surface, or 10 ft., whichever is less
Peel and stick flashing and flashing tape seal a plumbing pipe that penetrates an exterior wall.
Peel and Stick Membrane Applied to Roof Valley
Peel-and-stick panel tape provides added assurance that SIP panel seams will remain airtight
Penetrations through subfloor air sealed
Pest Resistant Home
Pipe insulation helps retain heat in the pipes which provide hot water from the air-to-water heat pump for domestic hot water and space heating.
Place first shingle and next section of sidewall flashing over upper edge of diverter
Placement of the Self-Sealing Bituminous Membrane
Plumbing penetrations through the below slab insulation are sealed with tape and spray foam.
Polyethylene completely covers the floor of this crawlspace and is attached to the walls and piers as well
Polyethylene is being attached to the crawlspace floor and walls with plywood furring strips
Polyethylene sheeting or rigid insulation over aggregate
Polyethylene sheeting or rigid insulation over geotextile matting

Power production from the Integrated solar shingles helps cut electric bills to $71 a month for this home in North Carolina.
Power vented water heater installed
Precast concrete basement walls come to the site with integrated rigid foam insulation and steel-faced concrete studs.
Precast concrete foundation walls are lowered into place at the site by crane.
Prefabricated notched stringer staircase
Prefabricated routed stringer staircase
Prepare chase with adhesive for bottom insulation
Prescriptive Path: Supply ducts in unconditioned attic have insulation ≥ R-8. Performance Path: Supply ducts in unconditioned attic have insulation ≥ R-6
Prevent condensation in fibrous insulation-filled basement wall cavities by Installing rigid or spray foam between the frame wall and the concrete foundation wall and by not installing a Class I vapor retarder over the framed wall.
Proper flashing around windows is especially important when the rigid foam serves as the drainage plane in the wall
Proper installation of flashing for drainage
Proper shingling of drainage plane materials
Proper sizing for kitchen exhaust fan
Properly installed drain tile discharging to a sump pit
Properly installed drain tile discharging to daylight
Properly installed ERV/HRV
Properly installed ERV/HRV
Properly installed rigid insulation
Properly installed vapor barrier
Properly sealed sump pump
Provide flashing and sealing integrated with the air and water control layers for vents and other roof penetrations
Provide for pressure balancing between bedrooms and the rest of the house.
Pull the insulation and outer liner of the flex duct over the collar to come in full contact with the liner and insulation of the trunk line or fitting and tape in place
Pulling flex duct taut when installing greatly reduces the amount of friction caused by the ducting
PV is installed on all available south-facing roof surfaces.
PV panels provide shade while producing power over this 5-story multifamily project in San Francisco.
Quiet ENERGY STAR-rated exhaust fans provide spot ventilation and are integrated with the home’s fresh air ventilation system.
R-6 flexible duct has 2 inches of insulation around the inner liner so a 12-inch duct requires a 16x16-inch chase
Radon control system as part of a water-managed and air-sealed crawlspace
Rain Exposure Region Map
Raised ceiling chase sealed with drywall mud
Raised ceiling duct chase installation technique
Raised ceiling duct chase is not visible as finished product
Raised heel, energy trusses extend further past the wall and are deeper at the wall allowing room for full insulation coverage over the top plate of the exterior walls
Raised-heel roof trusses allow more room at the eaves for attic insulation.
Raised-heel trusses increase the roof height above the eaves allowing more space for insulation above exterior wall top plates; exterior wall sheathing extends up to keep wind from soffit vents from disrupting insulation.
Rater-measured duct leakage to outdoors ≤ 4 CFM25 per 100 sq. ft. of conditioned floor area
Rater-measured ventilation rate is within 100-120% of HVAC contractor design value (2.11)
Recessed can light is compressing duct work
Recirculating fan installed that does not exhaust to outside
Recommended sealant location as part of window frame rehabilitation
Recycle burned-out light bulbs whenever possible.
Recycle burned-out light bulbs whenever possible.
Renewable resources on this self-sufficient home include 22 kW of sun-tracking photovoltaic panels, a 3.2-kW wind mill, batteries for power storage, a solar thermal water heating system, and nine 10,000-gallon water tanks.
