Roxul Comfortbatt in double stud wall
I’ve been reading the blogs and Q&A section for awhile now and I’ve seen a lot of pieces on Roxul. It comes across to me as a damn fine product even though I have zero experience using it. I was poking around the net and came across a blog of a man building his home in a place called Moose Hill (I’m assuming Canada).
He framed his place with double stud wall / truss wall system with the interior wall being the load bearing wall. Then he attached the sheathing to the interior side of the structural wall. After building the exterior (truss) section he filled the void with three layers of Roxul Comfortbatt (3.5″ thick). No exterior sheathing was used. The exterior wall and Roxul was covered with Typar.
What is the down side to this wall system?
