Can framers increase a home’s energy efficacy?
Hello Fine Homebuilding world.
I am co-owner and operator of a small company that specializes in framing homes. When I bid jobs, I often include nails, and glue as part of my costs. In my area the G.C. or lumber yard figures out building materials.
What can I do to this standard lumber package to make a common home more energy efficient?
What products could I add to the standard framing practice?
What small, cost-effective changes could I recommend to the G.C. or homeowner?
My crew is small and inspired by Passive Home designs. We are seeking to add some steps in our framing process to get a better, more energy efficient product.
