What were they thinking?
We are Building Performance Institute (BPI)-certified contractors and participants in the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) Home Performance with Energy Star program in upstate New York.  We are required to do whole-house assessments with every estimate we perform for work on a building. Some of the things that we encounter are strange, funny, or very dangerous for the residents of the home.  As you can see from the pictures, this one was very dangerous.  This house leaked like the proverbial sieve.  This was corrected before the house was insulated and air sealed.
