During 2004, two different wall assemblies using an exterior thermal and moisture management system (ETMMS) were used in the construction of two low-income projects in St. Paul, Minnesota. This paper discusses and compares the two types of wall assemblies, emphasizing the differences in construction methods and procedures. Comparisons include energy, moisture resistance, indoor air quality, constructability, and acceptance.
