Building Knowledge conducted the initial blower door test this morning, now that the wall and rim joist insulation is done and the vapor control layers are complete. The current Minnesota Building Code requires a maximum of 3 air changes per hour at 50 Pascals of pressure. The most stringent building standard, Passive House, requires a maximum of 0.6 ACH. Today's preliminary test resulted in 1.6 ACH; not at all bad!
In other construction news, drywall has begun upstairs and siding continues on the exterior.
