Energy Efficient Wall Construction

There are many choices to consider when designing wall assemblies that will be energy efficient and provide homeowners with a comfortable home that is 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.

We look forward to exploring with you how these construction methods could be the best choice for your new home construction project.
