So, while this might be the answer in some locations where we're not worried so much about insulation, in other locations that's just not gonna make any sense. So, in those locations, maybe we do something like, where we leave a gap inside, and so the structural capacity gets handled by the two 2x8s, and then we put, we infill the rest of it, with rigid insulation. So that you still have some cold bridge, you still have a lot more wood there than you would otherwise, of course you do, 'cause it's gotta do the structural duty that the header has to do, it has to span that whole opening, but a big chunk of it is actually set up as insulation.
