Question concerning condensation
I just moved into a newly constructed house in zone 5A this past October. It has SIP walls, slab on grade (stained & sealed) with radiant and cellulose in the ceiling at R-42.
I know this is a new house and there will be a lot of moisture from the 2x's and drywall that will eventually go away, but it seems that I have a more than average amount. My Pella Proline windows have 20-30% condensation that is dripping all over place. The Therma Tru doors are fine (front and patio), but the brass hardware is dripping wet.
Now the house is comfortable as hell and maintains a constant 68 degrees, but the condensation is killing me. My builder said that it will all go away in a couple of years as everything dries out in the house, but I am not sure.
Any advice? - Thanks -

Since drywall has a permeance of 0.02 liter/sec - m at 75 PA is ever possible to have sheathing dry to the interior of the home?
