Opinions on Klingenberg Wall vs Other Common Assemblies
I am in the final design stage and getting ready to select a wall assembly for the builder who will be doing the weathertight assembly (framing, sheathing and windows/doors). Living in Ottawa, Canada, we are aiming for a wall R-Value of between R-50 and R-60, depending on the energy model.
This builder specialises in Passive House and primarily uses the Klingenberg wall (see attachment) but is open to other wall assembly.
Are there any draw back from going with the Klingenberg versus a double wall or 2×6″ with exterior insulation?
