I'm very proud to have finished this monster and made it available to my colleagues and their students! I hope you find it an indispensable part of your library. Here's a snippet for you:

Sorry about that. Friday morning, we realized the CreateSpace publishing solution we were planning to use was not up to snuff- the photos looked grainy and it was just a generally low-quality printing job. We've switched to Lulu print-on-demand now, and for those of you who are authors, I'm happy to share my experience!
I am expecting delivery today. I have 12 years in the home performance business so I will give it a thorough review and send a pm with my input.
Just got my copy of HPD yesterday and I could not put it down until I read it from cover to cover. This field manual is put together very well with a lot of information any tester can use to improve their testing skills. The text in this guide is straight forward, no nonsense and as that famous Dragnet detective would say “Just the facts ma’am.” While I already do some of the tips included in this manual, there were additional ones I will be adding to my testing proceedures. I especially like Appendix A.04 Drilling/Patching Holes that details the ways of drilling various flues and then safely patching the drilled holes. I trust there will be more additions to this great manual as building performance testing proceedures are updated. Maybe a HPD iPad app for us geeky testers down the road?
Thanks to Corbett and his colleagues for creating this HPD guide for all the energy techs striving to test building performance safely and correctly for their customers.
