2 x 6 Exterior WallsStronger exterior walls and added insulating capabilities are in demand by today's homeowners. The added strength allows studs 24 inches on center rather that 16 inches with standard studs.


This saves energy in two ways. It reduces the amount of wood surface in the width of the wall (wood is not a good insulator) and it creates bigger insulating cavities.
