Does this wall assembly sound good to avoid mold?
I’m getting so many different opinions that it’s hard to make sense of it all. I’m Building a new house and the added cost and logistics involved with external foam insulation is not an option for us. Spray foam on the inside is not an option either. We are in zone 5. Will this wall assembly do a good job keeping mold and moisture out of the wall? Any other suggestions to someone who is very committed to avoiding moisture/condensation issues in the home?
