I’ve attached pictures of a house we are currently designing and planning to build in the spring. We are in zone 6.
I could really use some help coming up with an insulation strategy. I just can’t seem to come up with a cost effective way of insulating this(in my own head anyways!) This house will have ICF frost walls, and will be built slab on grade, no basement. The first floor will also be ICF. From there it gets confusing. At this point we have one part of the house has attic trusses, and the other will be stick built two story with scissor trusses. I’m not concerned about insulating the garage at this point, but getting the details right is important to me. I am considering exterior insulation for the roof but would like your thoughts.
Also, the small section of house is a 3 season patio.
How would YOU insulate this house? I’m all ears. Thanks everyone.
