We're looking at the back side of the assembly for the EIFS wall, it's our exterior wall here, and you can see we've got the green board for the sheathing, and it's always important when you see that bright green, or some companies make it in yellow, you can see the bright color means exterior grade sheathing. It has some fiberglass in it, and it's more weather resistant than the interior grade drywall. And then we've got our batt insulation and our metal studs, and then there's going to be another layer of drywall to complete the assembly.
