Introduction: Extended Plate & Beam Wall System

Extended Plate and Beam (EP&B) is an advanced wall system developed by Home In-novation Research Labs. EP&B provides a high-performing wall at reasonable cost and effort that meets or exceeds the prescriptive insulation requirements of the IECC for all U.S. climate zones.

EP&B is based on tried-and-true lumber construction methodologies, integrating rigid foam sheathing with standard framing practices into a system that preserves many conventional construction features and minimizes builder risk. The Extended Plate and Beam (EP&B) wall system is composed of familiar wall materials but in a different configuration.
