Abstract:The use of exterior sprayed-on insulation and portland cement plaster produces an attractive precast wall panel residence which is capable of effi-cient use of solar and thermal energy by storage in the concrete panels until required. The cavelike in-terior environment created by omission of floor insula-tion leads to better control on the use of thermal energy and lower requirements for equipment. Construction and design are described.
