High R-Value Walls: Building Details for Double-Stud Wall Construction


How to build a house with double-stud walls

12 details for critical connections between walls, roofs, floors, and energy efficient slabs. (Note: These details are from northern Minnesota, where vapor barriers can safely be used. In warmer climates, it’s a good idea to omit the interior polyethylene.)

Note: Unfortunately, some of the double-stud wall details shown on this page exist only as pdf files; for these details, dwg files are currently unavailable.
