In   this   work,   the   results   obtained   during   the monitoring of a building together with the adjustment curves achieved with the numeric simulation program SIMEDIF are presented. SIMEDIF has been developed in the INENCO (Non Conventional Energy Research Institute), Salta, Argentina,. In the measured data (from 1 to Aug. 4, 1997) the light weight character of the construction is evidenced by the lack  of  an  appreciable phase out between  the interior and the external temperature. The expected dissimilar behavior between the rooms facing South and North was observed. During the day, the warmest room is the one that faces the South and West, as expected. The agreement between measured and simulated  data  is considered  acceptable  by  the authors, within a 1 °C error.
