How to Defeat Thermal Bridging in Tiny House Steel Framing

Steel framing typically reduces the R-value of the in-cavity insulation by as much as 50%. Wood framing reduces R-value too… but only by about 10%. This is because wood transfers heat slower than metal, but neither are good insulators. So all framed houses, wood & steel, are subject to thermal bridging – which is heat […]
