insulating green timber frame
« on: March 07, 2019, 02:23:08 PM »
If I'm building timber frame with green wood, will insulating the wet frame cause fungus growth? It seems this would hinder the breathing of the house...

I've had the same thoughts for my camp project. For a house though, code here requires an air exchanger, so that could help. Heritage Finishes makes an oil finish for timber frames and can add a fungicide to it. I believe Shelter Institute has it for sale on their website.

In my case, the my wood will have dried for probably 18 months before I raise it, just because it's probably going to take me that long to finish cutting it. I plan on having a solar fan and vent to removed some humidity.
