Vapor barrier in addition to paperbacked in MS??


Gary thanks for the links - will review....just as an FYI, one of top two links has a Trojan virus on the page. My filter caught it. If you didn't get the warning you might want to run a virus scan.

I am not sure if we have the true t 1 11 or the other type, I know its 1/2 inch thick and weighs a freaking ton. I know its not the thin version that I have seen on houses. Hope that makes sense.

We have 1 x 4 trim at the top and corners of the house and we have 1 x 6 on the bottom. All of this trim is over the top of the siding and its all screwed in and not nailed. The trim is also PT. There is additional bracing inside the corners of the house as well. There are no exposed ends per se on any of the edges of the house or sheathing. Its very secure.

The bottom trim is sealed to the bottom plate with roof tar really thick and all seams, trim pieces, windows, screw holes etc have been caulked. The house has one coat of primer and two coats of latex paint. So I think its pretty waterproof... well as much as we can make it.

Also of note the studs in this house are not regular pine they are made of a hardwood - cant remember the name. This stuff is really heavy and really hard to cut.

Sorry for the ramble.

Robyn
