Insulation and plumbing on new construction in Michigan
We are currently in the process of framing a new construction home in Metro Detroit (Michigan). Our priority lies in building the most “nontoxic” home we can, but also want energy efficiency. I have two questions:
1. What kind of insulation do you recommend? I am worried about the moisture and rodent issues with blown in cellulose, but I am not sure if Airkrete is going to be in budget. Any experience? Any contractor recommendations from anyone in my area?
2. What are your thoughts about PEX piping. It seems standard but I am little concerned about all of our water going through plastic pipes.
