Best wall construction for temperate & humid climate?
Planning a build in New Zealand. Location annual temperature ranges are 40-75f. Annual humidity ranges are 70-90%. Average monthly rainfall 1 to 4″. I would really like to understand the best order of layers for wall construction, especially the best locations for vapor-permeable membranes and air barrier.
If possible, Id like to know whether I should go SIP or frame and insulation.
House will be 2200 sq/ft 2 person home.
