Energy Efficient Wall Construction

There are many choices to consider in wall construction design that will be energy efficient and provide homeowners with a comfortable home economical to heat. But which is the best balance of performance and cost to build?

We have been utilizing a method that combines advanced framing techniques, insulated sheathing, diligent wall sealing, and high-performance, blown-in insulation to achieve these goals, and are happy to see that in a Building Science comparison of high R-value wall assemblies, this method scored quite favorably. The Building Science study can be viewed here. 

Additional details and construction photographs can be viewed here. We look forward to exploring how these wall construction methods could be the best choice for your new home construction project.
