The details that follow are standard details that depict proper detailing for cold-formed steel framed exterior walls with a conventional stucco finish. These details are adapted from the concepts provided by the Foam Sheathing Committee (FSC). Another source for these details is from the Western Wall and Ceiling Institute’s pamphlet entitled The Energy Code and Plaster Assemblies. Additional comments came from the Minnesota Lath & Plaster Bureau. The intent is to serve as a guide. Final approval of detailing for a specific construction project is the right and responsibility of the Architect of Record.
