The Perfect Wall House was inspired by concepts put forth by forensic engineer Joe Lstiburek. Created by architectural firm Rauser Design, the house features an interesting element that separates it from others like it: a majority of the building materials can be found on the outside of the house. This includes metal siding, rainscreen layering, foam insulation, air and vapour barrier and pine.
