We were pleased to host the Iowa chapter of the Building Enclosure Council (BEC) for a house tour and presentation, as well as a sustainable construction class from Hawkeye College. Many thanks to everyone who came out — including for the many excellent questions and kind words about the house.
From the Iowa BEC:
“The house is coming together rapidly. With the exterior walls and roof complete, the interior is taking shape. It feels lovely: bright and open yet still intimate.”
A handful of photos from the tour are below. You can see more on the BEC’s website: https://bec-iowa.org/tour-iowa-nest-residence/#
A copy of the presentation from the tour is posted separately, here.
As you can see in the photos, interior framing is largely complete, as is the spray foam around the windows and the house wrap on the exterior.
