Double stud/Bonfiglioli wall
A couple of questions please.
I see on the Rockwool site that they offer 8″ Comfortbatt in Canada. Does anyone know if it’s avail in the US? I know i could send them an email but since I’m here………….. 🙂
I’m a fan of the double stud wall because I’m in favor of taking care of the thermal bridge and of using as little foam as possible. I also like the idea of window and door details being more standard. I’m thinking that if you built a double stud wall and took an idea from the Bonfiglioli wall by attaching a strip of rigid foam to one of the walls causing them to butt up against each other. In other words 2×4 – 1″ foam strip – 2×4 for a wall depth of 8″. That would leave a nice 8″ cavity for the 8″ Rockwool batt.
What do you think?
