Perimeter/Core Envelope Paneling vs Interior Paneling Totals*
*It is important to distinguish between perimeter (exterior) and interior paneling when budgeting.  The exterior perimeter
paneling will have a higher per surface area cost because it will include insulation and exterior finish treatment.
