This is an online version of the cold climate homebuilding techniques workshop that Extension’s Rich Seifert has taught for many years. The workshop focuses on the science of energy-efficient buildings and covers options for foundation, wall and roof construction as well as sections on windows, heating and ventilation, vapor barriers, indoor air quality, radon and dealing with northern issues like permafrost and wind-blown snow. It is also designed to help homeowners who plan to participate in the state’s home energy rebate program.
Seifert teaches from the Alaska Residential Building Manual, which is available for purchase from your local UAF Cooperative Extension Service office or is available for download at http://www.ahfc.us/reference/alaska_residential_building_manual.cfm
