About a year ago, I had the pleasure of hearing Mark Laliberte, a building science guru, speak at a seminar here in Austin, TX. Tons of good info(mainly about what not to do) was shared. One of the cooling tidbits I walked away with was a free app called Construction Instruction. Mark has teamed up with some of the biggest names(mainly vendors) in the business to offer a very detailed and extremely visual dummy guide to building science. This includes numerous animated cross sections of wall systems, flashing methods, and best practices.
My favorite part is that app can be shown to workers in the field via a tablet(like i-Pad). Talk about making it easy to transmit great information(as well as break language barriers). Big thanks to Mark and his team for putting this new resource at arms reach to builders all over the world. Oh, the beauty of technology and the internet..!! Two big thumbs up!! Check out Construction
Instruction at this link, and if you like it, please spread the word!!
