 NEW ZEALAND: Solid Wood home interior comfort and R-Value.

This is in spite of these houses having walls with a low R value. A group of companies wanting to promote solid wood buildings asked Dr Larry Bellamy of University of Canterbury and Don Mackenzie from Lincoln University to research why these houses performed better than their R values indicated. The results of this work was quite a surprise to the researchers ,… ...

 THERMAL MASS: Why is wood better than other mass materials?   
Thermal Mass refers to materials that have the capacity to store heat (thermal energy).

∑ If the properties of a Thermal Mass material allow it to effectively absorb heat from a source and then release the heat slowly over a period of time, then the Thermal Mass can be effectively used in a structure to spread heat from the time the source is available to periods when the source is not available. In this form the Thermal Mass can mitigate high and low temperatures to help maintain a comfortable… ...

Building Green
By: Marcel LaPerriere
Pan Abode Representative - Sitka, AK

Sorting fact from hype is not always easy. Building green is no exception. Over the last couple of years I have been doing a fair bit of research on building green both because I think it is the right thing to do and because Iím working with several clients who want to build green. Recently I was working with a woman who had a very nice modern home designed. The architect was encouraging her to build this home using steel.… ...

 Pan Abode Utilizes Wood From Certified Sustained Yield Forests
