Recommended exterior wall layout for North Carolina
I am investigating/interviewing contractors to build our new construction in central North Carolina, near Winston-Salem, where temperatures and conditions are milder than in the mountains. We are considering a hybrid timber frame with exterior SIP walls and roofing SIPs. Simply put, what would you recommend as the construction sequence and materials for the walls? We've been told that an R-22 wall system would be sufficient with a strong focus on preventing air leakage.
My question stems from having read so much on the subjects from a host of experts that I've ended up being confused. Finally, do SIP manufacturers simply build a stock wall or may ithey be open to constructing them based on a customer's specifications?
