We call this modified framing method Swedish Platform Framing.<br /> <br /> This video is quite long, and we apologize about that. If we figure out how to say all this in a shorter video we'll produce a new version. In this video we make a very breif review of the history of stud framing systems - Balloon Framing and Western Platform Framing. Then we proceed to look in detail at the differences between Western and Swedish Platform framing.<br /> <br /> Swedish Platform Framing is explained in much more detail on our web site, and you can read that on this page:<br /> <a href="http://blog.lamidesign.com/p/swedish-platform-framing-info.html">http://blog.lamidesign.com/p/swedish-platform-framing-info.html</a><br /> <br /> AS with the USA New Wall, the walls shown in this video use Stone Wool insulation rather than fiberglass. We mention in the video that this is because Stone Wool offers higher insulation values - R23 for 2x6 stud spaces, and R30 for 2x8 stud spaces. We also mention that it allows for better installations. You can read a detailed article about why this is so on our blog:<br /> <a href="http://blog.lamidesign.com/2012/01/what-you-don-know-about-mineral-wool.html">http://blog.lamidesign.com/2012/01/what-you-don-know-about-mineral-wool.html</a><br /> <br /> Not covered in detail in the video is the Vapor Retarder membrane. We prefer a Variable Permeability Vapor Retarder membrane. There are several sources for this unique vapor retarder, notably Certainteed's Membrane:<br /> <a href="http://www.certainteed.com/products/insulation/mold-prevention/317391">http://www.certainteed.com/products/insulation/mold-prevention/317391</a><br /> And Intello Plus, and DB+ by ProClima:<br /> <a href="http://www.foursevenfive.com/index.php?main_page=index&amp;cPath=70_71_98_97_">http://www.foursevenfive.com/index.php?main_page=index&amp;cPath=70_71_98_97_</a>...<br /> <br /> You can read the entire Letters from Sweden series by clicking on the respective link under the the above blog post's title's.<br /> <br /> The USA New Wall, and Swedish Platform Framing are an outgrowth of our research into Swedish building practices. Again, you can find details of the USA New Wall here:<br /> <a href="http://blog.lamidesign.com/p/usa-new-wall-info.html">http://blog.lamidesign.com/p/usa-new-wall-info.html</a><br /> <br /> And again Swedish Platform Framing here:<br /> <a href="http://blog.lamidesign.com/p/swedish-platform-framing-info.html">http://blog.lamidesign.com/p/swedish-platform-framing-info.html</a><br /> <br /> If you need assistance implementing the USA New Wall or Swedish Platform Framing in your projects, we are here to help.
