Although building scientists have understood the advantages of airtight construction details for years, few residential plans include air barrier details. That’s nuts.
Do the blueprints show where the air barrier goes?
Ideally, construction documents should show the location of a building’s air barrier, and should explain how the builder is expected to maintain air-barrier continuity at penetrations and important intersections.
