Urban wood: using trees from your building sites in your building designs
Wisconsin Urban Wood and similar networks of arborists, sawmills, and skilled woodworkers are making use of trees lost to emerald ash borers, construction projects, and utility clearances to build some of the finest wood features in today's buildings. Dead, dying or damaged trees that once filled landfills are now being milled into feature walls, flooring, conference tables and many other products, most often without traveling more than 50 miles from stump to final consumer. This presentation will reveal a network of small businesses producing amazing products from a sustainable resource once considered a waste stream.

Part I: attic and roof building science and code
Attics and roofs can be configured in so many ways in terms of function, moisture, and heat performance that we need to get the science right and make sure each configuration meets the building code. This is no small feat, so we will work through the science and the code for a variety of attic and roof assembly setups.
