I've become a big fan of TimberStrand LSL Headers over the past few years, and if you're framing with 2x6's it's pretty easy to get an R-10 insulated header.  In this video my carpenter Bill Wood and I are discussing the differences between these engineered headers and the typical 2x10 / plywood sandwich. -Matt Risinger Principle of Risinger Homes, a High Performance Architect's Builder in Austin, TX.
