House as a System – A Holistic Approach (Part 1)

Webinars 2 and 3 explore the 11 critical steps involved in building a house as a ‘system.’ Customer comfort is paramount and we have to consider how the client will use their home.

Webinar 2 looks at how to avoid improper planning and design from the outset, both of which can impact the entire home and create costly errors and rework.
