The Residential Exterior Membrane Outside Insulation Technique (REMOTE) was developed and tested at the Cold Climate Housing Research Center in Fairbanks, Alaska. The process is unique in that the exterior membrane is placed on the outside of the sheathing, followed by layers of foam insulation.

Hosted by the Cold Climate Housing Research Center's own Dave Shippey, this step-by-step guide is easy to watch and makes learning the REMOTE wall system fast and simple. This two part video is packed with everything a builder needs to know about retrofitting an existing structure or building new construction using the REMOTE wall system. The video follows construction of a small building and each chapter details a different step in the process as well as alternative methods depending on your design.

The video begins with a section on the theory behind the REMOTE wall system then leads into chapters detailing:

• Framing
• Exterior membrane application
• Foam application
• Windows -- interior placement, exterior placement
• REMOTE roof
• Cladding traditional siding, stucco

Whether a do-it-yourself homeowner or a building professional, this guide is a must-have for anyone interested in building a warm efficient home in the North.
