This paper introduces two demonstration objects onto which various interior insulation systems made of woodfibre have been installed. Temperature and humidity sensors have been integrated in the respective constructions. Insulation systems adhered to the existing construction with clay mortar are compared to non-plastered insulation systems. The drying up process of the clay is of great interest. Additionally the functionality of woodfibre boards on earth-adjacent masonry is studied. Masonry
