This episode of the BS* + Beer Show features some of the principal folks behind TimberHP giving us an update on production and availability of their wood fiber insulation line. We get a brief photojournalistic tour of their 11-acre site and hydro-powered facility in Madison, Maine, filled with what Ben Bogie describes as “formidable machinery that is kind of terrifying . . . ASMR for construction nerds.” Travis shares his experience installing the company’s loose-fill product, TimberFill, which he likens to “frolicking in the woods of Maine.” And there’s talk of pricing compared to heritage products, comparative R-values, and “Lstiburek-approved” details, among other tangents.
Enjoy the show!
