Thank you for picking my Forum tip. I am fairly early in the process, just finishing with the planning. I have taken your advice and planned till I couldn't plan any more. I hope it goes smoothly. The bank was very impressed with the proposal we put together. I also wanted to say how helpful your site has been. Thanks for the great site.

All,

    Struggling with the decision for exterior walls.  Any insight would be appreciated.  The obvious tradeoff between expense vs. R-value and increased efficiency.  I'm doing conventional stick-framing and haven't decided on Icynene vs. batts or some other type foam.  Would love to hear some opinions.  2x6 means more expensive doors and an increased framing cost, etc...

Randy, up here in the North East everyone builds with 2x6 mostly because you can't meet insulation requirements with 2x4. Although if you put additional insulation over the exterior you are certainly allowed to use 2x4. International residential code allows 2x4 unless they are supporting 3 floors and a ceiling and roof. Then you are required to go to 2x6.
