    • Front End Loader – a type of tractor that has a front mounted square wide bucket connected to the end of two booms to scoop up loose material from the ground
    • Gypsum Board
      • a rigid board made of layers of fiber board or paper bonded to a gypsum plaster core, used instead of plaster or wood panels in construction to form walls
    • Heat Pump compressor/ evaporator – takes in air at atmospheric pressure and delivers it at higher pressure, absorbs heat in the air in order to change the liquid refrigerant that flows through into a vapor
        • Air handling unit – used to condition and circulate air as part of a heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning system
    • Insulation - materials that are used to reduce the rate of heat transfer Loose Fill Insulation
    • Lintel – a horizontal beam that supports the masonry above a window or door opening Angled steel lintel Concrete lintel

    • Vapor Retarder
      • slow the rate of vapor diffusion into the thermal envelope of a structure
      • It is attached to each side of the insulation
    • Waterproofing – fully adhered material to resist moisture from entering the base of the building
    • Weep Holes - small openings left in the outer wall of masonryconstruction as an outlet for water inside a building to move outside the wall and evaporate
    • Windows Double hung casement – neither window is hinged allowing them to slide past each other Single Hung – Hinged on the side
