Construct exterior walls with structural insulated panels (SIPs) to provide an air-tight wall with consistent insulation and very little thermal bridging.
Continuous supply and exhaust fans rated ≤ 1 sone by manufacturer
Continuously-operating ventilation & exhaust fans include readily accessible override controls
Conventional T-post framing detail
Conventional three-stud corners leave a cavity that must be insulated by the framers—not good
Cool air flow is produced when the cooling cycle is energized (set thermostat to “cool”)
Coordinate with other trades including framers, plumbers, and electricians to prevent needless looping of flex duct
Correctly insulated floor
Cover bottom of cantilever area with rigid foam insulation
Cover insulated kneewall with rigid foam, caulked at edges. Add attic floor insulation
Cover lumber stored outdoors
Cover rigid foam with siding or with 3/8-inch exterior plywood

Different types of ICF blocks
Direct vent appliance installed
Direct-vent condensing gas furnace with fresh air intake
Do not install a class I vapor retarder over vapor-permeable insulation on the interior of a foundation wall as the vapor retarder can trap moisture in the wall, which can lead to mold.
Do not install carpet in areas that are likely to get wet, such as bathrooms, kitchens, entry ways, or laundry rooms.
Do not install lumber, plywood, or other building materials that show visible signs of water damage or mold.
Door has been undercut to allow for specified amount of air flow therefore contributing to pressure balancing
Door is not undercut therefore not contributing to pressure balancing
Door undercuts are commonly used to provide a return air pathway from rooms with closed doors

Outdoor unit for a mini split (ductless) heat pump.
Ducts are insulated but strapping is compressing the insulation therefore reducing the R-value
Ducts are properly insulated and supported without compressing the insulation
