Passive House with brick elevation

yavaid | Posted in PassivHaus on

Hi,

Planning for PH with Brick elevation, how does the “in between” windows work with Brick or should i plan for “outies” ? i am not able to visualize on closing the gap between brick exterior and window without breaching thermal and hydro barrier.  Can you help me understand?

Thanks
Naveen

    Hi Naveeen -

    Have you read this blog by Martin Holladay? https://www.greenbuildingadvisor.com/article/innie-windows-or-outie-windows.

    I ask this because there is substantial debate on which one folks prefer AND some comments that address brick veneer installations. Take a look and then come back to Q&A?
