Floor system as part of vapor management system
Considering the transition of the vapor management layer from the lower (finished) level to the next, I find myself looking for an alternate method to tie the walls together than patching in between joists.
This appears to be a critical location and with good chance of failure. Why not use the ceiling as part of the system, whether with a paint or membrane vapor layer? Does anyone know of any information, monitoring articles on this method? thanks
