Advanced Framing Method

Sunterra Homes uses only as much wood framing as is structurally necessary, leaving more room for insulation. This construction method eliminates structurally unnecessary wood members and replaces them with insulation. Advanced framing conserves wood, reduces heat loss and saves money without compromising the structural strength of the building. SunTerra has developed a cost-effective exterior wall that performs 50 percent better than a standard insulated 2 x 6 wall without increasing the wall thickness. All of our plans illustrate this option. More information is available in our Conservation Guide.
