Anyone seen or used Tstuds (thermally broken studs) yet?
Has anyone here looked at Tstuds yet? They’re basically a sandwich of two 2×3 studs filled with foam. The idea is to make a stud assembly with an integrated thermal break that can serve as a direct replacement for standard 2×6 studs. The concept is pretty interesting, since you could reach a reasonably high whole-wall R value without external insulation. I’m building a home in Alaska and external foam insulation is hard to incorporate here because of very high wind and seismic requirements coupled with condensation issues.
