Rigid foam underneath pier and beam house
I’m building a house on piers with 2×12 floor joists dense packed with cellulose. To eliminate thermal bridging from the floor joists (and to air seal underneath) I plan on using zip R sheathing underneath the house. In terms of eliminating thermal bridging is it worth it to pay extra for R-6 sheathing or would R-3 be sufficient?
