At Denim Homes we build all of our homes with a unique wall design that creates a thermal break between the interior and exterior of the home. The wall structure is built with 2x8” lumber or 2X10” lumber, top and bottom plated and staggered 2X4” vertical studs on the inside and outside edges of the wall. As a result, the walls are thicker than those used in conventionally-built houses.
By staggering the studs there is no place for the heat to be conducted to the outside of the home and likewise the cold to the inside of the home, thus creating an envelope that completely protects the inside of the home from the elements. The additional area inside the wall cavity created more room for thermal insulation as well.
