Swedish Food for thought | GreenBuildingAdvisor Swedish Platform Framing & USA New Wall - they're thinking about it....

i've been following greg's blog on the swedish pre-fab stuff for a while, there are definitely some gems in there. i'm interested in using a spinoff of this wall for a series of panelized passivhaus projects underway. the interior air barrier is in correct location, but we're not comfortable w/ a membrane so we'll probably have to slide structural sheathing inboard of 2x (hopefully 6, not 8...) which probably has some implications we'll need to work out w/ structural and GC. also, i'm slightly against the use of mineral wool at this point, due to the formaldehyde content (1-6%), but for rainscreens in the NW... it might not be a bad idea.
