Wall assembly details?
My wife and I are building our first house. I have a pretty good grasp on “normal” building practices but as I’m digging more into building science I’m realizing quickly I need to re-think a lot of things.
So currently the wall assembly we have drawn up is…
Half inch drywall
2×6 walls with either open cell foam or cellouse
1.5 inch layer of 2lb density eps.
Cladding will more than likely be vinyl siding and some stone veneer.
I would really like to have the windows on the same plane as the foam. So my question is… can I put the house wrap on the outside of the foam in order to make flashing the windows a bit easier? Any other comments on the assembly are welcomed!
