Energy Efficient Framing

With traditional framing, once the corner space on outside corners is boxed in, it cannot easily be insulated, resulting in energy loss. A more energy efficient method (see diagram below) allows easy access and ability to insulate corners. Using Nu-Wool Premium Cellulose Insulation in this space results in energy savings for the life of the structure.

On inside corners, using a 2″x6″ or 2″x8″ stud (turned 90°) to attach the inside walls not only allows insulation of the space, but framing is faster because there’s no need to measure for inside wall placement.
