How to Add Energy Efficiency to Rough Framing

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.
