PVC Air inlet Ok I hear you all on the air intake. How about some sort of screen which would prevent a large coal from exiting the stove? Assuming we leave the intake as is.

Cost Comparison Kye Ford Kye It would be great to see the breakdown of your numbers. I couldn't believe how close the were in materials only. Let's see how the two sets of numbers differ. I'm sure there are plenty of folks who want to know. Certainly the Architects because they are counting on us to give accurate estimates of framing costs.Every job is different, and I continue to maintain the labor of providing the insulation cavity on the outside of the building is faster and less interrupted so will therefore be less to install.

Kye In the comparison I have Kye In the comparison I have done I am assuming the double stud walls have the following: , Air sealing by taping the exterior, a vapor smart membrane inside, either WRB or zip wall, taping required for both systems of the fabric used, and strapping for both walls for an air chase. This will bring the cost of the walls closer. Are you considering having the interior vapor smart membrane in your system?

Kye Wall comparison Hey Kye, I've been working up comparisons for Habitat and other jobs of the double stud and arctic wall again. It is still more but interesting to note the totals are closer when the whole house is used as a basis rather than 100 sf wall. Either way as you say both good walls. I prefer the air barrier to be nice and toasty on the inside. I like to look at it as $1.08 sf more in the 100 sf wall scenario. Alex

Exterior finish Hi Very nice project. Do you have any photos of the exterior as is it today. I am curious how it has weathered and if you had to screw it instead of nailing it to prevent cupping. Thanks
