Windwashing through loose-fill cellulose
We have some high winds, 40km/h, gusts up to 105km/h. I pulled some of the plugs in the wall (I have not plastered them yet) and noticed the wind gets through the cellulose with no problems, the wind blew in a few puffs of cellulose during strong gusts.
Essentially my house has an air barrier at the interior plaster, wall stack up is:
plaster/lath/plaster/barn board/cellulose-true 2×4/wood siding/vinyl siding.
I could not read the wind washing article since i’m not a premium member but i’m guessing it found wind washing is real if my experience is any indication.
