I have a new home under construction in NE South Dakota (cold Zone 6)
I have a new home under construction in NE South Dakota (cold Zone 6). Exterior walls are 2×6 with 1/2″ 5-ply plywood.
My insulation contractor will be dense packing cellulose in the walls. He uses a 6 mil polyethylene for the netting. My concern is the netting is a vapor barrier, allowing very little wall drying to the inside, only to the outside. Your thoughts and comments would be appreciated, Thanks.
