The Designer is free to customize the exterior (cladding and roof) and interior finishes to meet the client’s style.  Akira Living recommends that the exterior cladding finish be designed as a rain-screened system or installed as quasi-rain-screened system (has a built-in capillary break drainage plain).  On the interior side, any substituted interior finish material must fall within the same vapour permeance class (identified in the construction assembly details) as defined by the current International Building Code (and its derivative codes).

Please note the customer must purchase a Detail Package prior to Akira Living commencing any custom designs.  Alternately, simply purchase an AutoCAD file and adjust the finishing materials yourself to suit your project requirements.  Ensure all changes made comply with the terms and conditions in the License Agreement.
