New home, Room-in-room, Triple leaf? Building suggestions-mixing
« on: February 15, 2020, 05:38:18 AM »
Data:
  • New home being built--selected from builder's palate of  about 10 floor plans
    Studio will be on 1st floor with concrete floor
    studio room sticks out from house floor plan, so has three exterior walls
    Exterior walls will have brick on the outside of the house
    2 1/4" gap between exterior wrap of house (Tyvek) and interior face of brick wall
    From outside it goes 2.5" brick-->1" air space-->wrap, sheathing, 2 x 4 frame, interior drywall. Then would come the interior room in a room wall which would be 2 x 4, 2 layers of 5/8" gypsum board (possibly with green glue between them).

Question:
If I build room in a room in studio space, will I be creating a triple leaf with the new isolated wall? My concern is because of the air gap already between the frame of the house and the brick.

Thanks!
