Sometimes, it's best just to let the pictures speak for themselves. The framers are continuing to work at a ridiculous pace. Don't believe me? Here, look:
OK, so what's the deal with the green board, right? Traditionally, a house is sheathed in plywood, and then wrapped in a white synthetic fabric called Tyvek that helps keep air and water out. The green board is similar to that - only better.
It's called Zips. Each sheet of zips has a layer of plywood, a layer of rigid foam insulation, and then the green part that acts as the air/water barrier. Once the sheets are installed, the seams get taped, and you're done. It makes for a tighter envelope (translated, more energy efficient), installs faster than the traditional alternative, and provides additional insulation. Win, win, win. Building evolution is cool.
