This research provides design and construction information for retrofitting existing residential wood frame building envelopes to reduce space heating energy use by 75% or more. The research investigates high insulation building envelope retrofits; develops targets for insulation and airtightness values for foundations, walls, windows, doors and roofs; considers building code and zoning implications of changes to the building envelope; and presents details and specifications of practical retrofit strategies for common housing archetypes.
