Insulation, taping and moisture


We sprayed ridgid insulation on all exterior walls and have radiant floor heat as well as wood fireplace. They are taping the drywall and the moisture is insane. It is below freezing outside and we have the heat on in the house. Is this typical or did we get it too tight? Any way to help dry it out?

Run a couple dehumidifiers. You should probably open the doors and windows once in awhile to get some fresh air into the house. The moisture won't go away if it doesn't have a place to go.
