Zip-R in Bend, Oregon?
My wife and I just bought a lot on the west side of Bend, Oregon (ZONE 5) and are planning to build our first home there.
The ZIP 2.0 (reviewed by Risinger w/ DesignBuildDoug) method caught my attention and I’m considering the 1.5″ R6 sheathing for all the exterior.
We’ll have 2×6 walls filled with BIBs blown in fiberglass.
My question (already asked Huber support and they couldn’t give me an answer) is that exterior insulation thickness enough to keep the dewpoint outside the exterior wall?
Thanks in advance!
