How to Add Energy Efficiency to Rough Framing

Building Plans for Advanced Framing

Reduce thermal bridging by using less lumber and more insulation — and you'll get improved energy efficiency and comfort as bonuses

The point of advanced framing, also known as optimum value engineering (OVE), is to frame a house so that it meets its structural requirements without wasting material.

Warm rim joists help to keep floors warm. Warm floors are more comfortable. See section 6 below.

These 23 construction details will help you get the most from your lumber by keeping your framing crew on the same page.
