Cost of a double stud wall with dense packed cellulose
I want to compare the cost of a ‘conventional’ 2×6/batt/rigid foam wall to a double stud wall with dense packed cellulose. Wall should be around R35 to R40-effective.
Are there any estimates or data available for Canada or northern USA?
Also one advantage of the double stud wall would seem to be eliminating most of the thermal bridging thru studs and therefore eliminating the need for a continuous exterior foam. That should simplify labor.
Thanks in advance, Matthew
