4" of fiberglass is R13, but studs are thermal bridges?

This says that a 4" stud is R4.38: ColoradoENERGY.org - R-Value Table

Matt is still working on his house!

I wondered if he ever finished. I looked and not only is he still working on this house after 21 months, much of it is still bare to the studs.
He has released 36 videos about this project, with over 8.5 million views.
Is the monetization paying for the neverending project?

Endless people have said that he is smart for doing this, but Kevin showed how to remodel it for $85,000 in 6 weeks and then he would have rented it out a year and 7.5 months ago.

Then he could have bought an empty lot or a house in worse shape and built the house that he wanted from scratch.

It's a internet video, so everything about it is suspect including the process costs and financing.
Of course he's monetizing it
