Step 1: Determine Your Climate Zone and Meet Appropriate Building Envelope Requirements.
Climate zones are in the NMECC document on the NMHBA website: nmhba.org/buildingcodes/2012-codes. If your city is listed on the climate zone list, you must build to the requirements for that zone. If your city is not listed, check with your local building official to determine which climate zone requirements to follow.
