Flashing an In-Betweenie window is a lot like flashing an Innie or an Outie, only it is somewhere in between
Insulation & Air Sealing
Everything there is to know (well, almost) about blower door testing with a few engineer-y jokes along the way.
Blowing a thick bed of insulation into an attic is really a two-person job, but you can do it by yourself if you have to
An affordable insulated slab foundation suitable for climate zones 1, 2, and 3
A few really cool tricks and a Master Class at the end
Tight makes right behind tubs and showers—because they can be *ruff* to retrofit
You can dig in to the roof without adding more insulation, but you can't dig far
With blower door tests in the building code, it is up to more than just the insulators or the GC to deliver results: many trades have a stake.
Weather Barriers done right means weather barriers that go to work on more than just sunny days
For the price of a drywall repair, you can look inside walls with a thermal camera at insulation and air leaks
You can use your hand to detect some air leaks, but smoke puffers make other air leaks easier to "see."
Surfaces and subsurfaces are on the same team, remember?
Insulation does more than slow heat flow: it sells houses, future proofs, makes floor plans bigger, and sends your kids to college. Really.
But let me axe you this—how do they keep 'em sharp?
