hi to all,
Matt the following is based on the IECC (international energy conservation codes) as referenced in the 2003 IRC (international building code)
Monroe County NY (6,000 to 8,500 HDD [heated degree days])
Walls R-18 to 21
Floors R 21
Basement walls R-10 or 11
Crawl space walls R-20
Of course this applies to new construction in areas that the code is adopted
I hope they build pretty thick homes up there ![icon_wink.gif](upload://ssT9V5t45yjlgXqiFRXL04eXtqw.gif)
