Trying to catch up …
I have a 1980, 2×4, tract home that I am remodeling in Zone 5. I’ve read a lot on walls and insulation, but I still don’t know what’s the good, better, best configuration to build. I am a novice and a community college student studying the trades, so I don’t know how to evaluate many of the potential combinations and I don’t want to create a problem layering incompatible products that will prevent the wall from drying out. I haven’t had success meeting anyone or finding organizations that care or believe these issues matter. I’ve made a ton of mistakes already, and I’m trying to minimize them going forward.
