Future of Framing
« on: September 22, 2005, 10:36:04 AM »
Very interesting article in lastest Fine Homebuilding (Nov 05 issue).

Title is, "The Future of Framing is Here".  Good compilation of techniques to save lumber and increase the effectiveness of insulation.

By Joseph Lstiburek who works for or consults for DOE.  Does list a half-dozen different web sites where the info can be gleaned...but here it is in one place.

On your newsstands now.

Joe and I used to do workshops together in the 1980's - he's a very colorful fellow and a good writer. I also enjoyed this article.

His Building Science Corp. has been doing some interesting contracts on construction problems and climate appropriate super-insulation techniques.

Here is an overview:
