Double-stud wall assembly with NuCedar shingle siding
I plan on building a cottage on the East coast in New Brunswick Canada this summer (Zone 6).
I am interested in a higher R value wall assembly either by one of these two common cost-effective ways: building a double-stud wall with dense packed cellulose or building a 2 x 6 wall with a continuous layer of rigid foam insulation on the exterior side of the wall sheathing.
We were planning on installing NuCedar shingles as the exterior siding. This product however must be installed on solid sheathing and cannot be installed over furring strips according to the manufacturer.
A double-stud wall therefore seems to be the better (or only) option in this instance.
Any recommendations or tips for an appropriate double-stud wall assembly with regards to the NuCedar product and our climate zone??
