New Construction South Dakota
Next fall we will be building a new house in South Dakota, climate zone 6. I’m not looking for a passive house, just want to build the most efficient house we can, without blowing the bank. It will be a 2 story slab on grade. I plan on doing hydronic radiant floor heat. My question is what is the best wall assembly? As it stands now I’m thinking of going 2×6, with, blown in fiberglass, with 2” rigid foam, plywood sheathing with something of a rain screen before the siding. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Especially for the ceiling/roof.
