Cold Climate Housing Research Center

melaskaJune 15, 2012

I came across this site while researching cold climate heating & venting. Our Valdez winters aren't as severe as Fairbanks but the same principle applies.

Our foundation is complete & a lot of the building materials are being offloaded as I type! I am finally starting to believe :)

Here is a link that might be useful: Cold Climate Housing Research Center, Fairbanks

They put out some very good information in their publications. We've used their information even down here in the SE Alaska rainforest.
