New build in Zone 6a – What’s my best affordable insulation solution?
I’m planning on building a 2200sqft 2 story (+ basement) in Atlantic Canada. Assuming I can’t afford a full ICF build, what are my next best options? From what I gather, it would be a traditionally framed house, with R11 foam and Tyvek on the exterior and batts in the 2×6 cavities (with a vapour barrier?).
Beyond that, do I have any other affordable options?
