What it takes to Build a Mold-Preventative House
This post is about a meticulously built tiny home, designed to hold up in the long run to mold.
The post is written by the owner/builder who did years of research and consulted with many building science experts.
There was an extreme attention to detail on preventing mold.
The main reason almost every house is moldy is because of the many mistakes made in both design and execution.
These mistakes can be even more prevalent in tiny homes – which are less regulated and often built by non-experts.
This post serves as an example of the care, research, consultation, and attention needed to build a tiny house that will hold up to mold. There is no other article like this online nor in books so I’m very grateful to Terran!
The owner/builder, Terran, also has TILT (also known as chemical sensitivity). There is a focus on healthy materials in the build as well as mold prevention.
This post may have ideas you can use in your own build and it is also interesting to see the kind of detail needed to carefully build a house.
The build itself took over a year.[Read more…] about Passive House Tiny House – A Detailed Mold Preventative Build
