For this post, we though you might like a peek at the Thermomass system we’re employing to create a thermal break between the earth and the interior.  First we start with a capillary break over the footing of bituthene membrane. Then the concrete contractor drills steel dowels into the footing to anchor the wall.  Next the 4″ XPS (R20) foam panels are set up with fiberglass centering dowels that help keep the panel perfectly centered in the concrete form.  Finally the concrete is poured via a concrete pump truck, then in a couple days, the forms are stripped and ready for damp-proofing and backfill.
