A few air-sealing questions (at the sheathing stage).
My plywood sheathing with be my exterior air barrier and my housewrap will not be (not taping the bottom of the wrap).
I have a few questions for some tips and advice for you. The question number corresponds with the picture number
1) What is the best way to airseal my outdoor panel box here in this picture?
2) The cutout around my bathroom exhaust fan has a lot of room around it. Will it be sufficient to just tape around or should I stuff some sort of insulation in the gap first?
3) Should I tape around my windows (before housewrap) since the housewrap will not be an air barrier?
