"It is a lovely video -- but I think you should say something about the dangers that come (i.e., backdrafting) with sealing the downstairs first.  Just a thought.  I like your use of those bowls and colanders!"

"A good wall system has the weather barrier, insulation, thermal-mass, interior finish. Existing systems are missing the thermal-mass, calculated by thickness and transmittivity to hold heat-cold long enough to reduce energy inputs, easy to sim…"

Tom Mallard replied to Ross Jackson's discussion Radiant Barrier in the North?
