Air/Vapor Control Method with Future Work in Mind
air / vapor barrier for shared wall of future finished bonus room?
My house build is moving along but we are over budget and as a result, we will opt to finish off the bonus room above the garage in a few years. I did have the HVAC crew run the lineset for a mini-split but that is as far as I am going to go at this point.
The overall house is sheathed with taped OSB as the primary air barrier but there isn’t any sheathing installed between the main house and the future bonus room. Once finished, that wall will have drywall on both sides and be climate controlled but in the meantime what should I use for air sealing that won’t lead to a lot of additional work later?
