Long time member who reads ALOT, and is building my first custom house.
This build thread is Awesome! Thank you for showing everything in detail. Your build is helping me plan tremendously!
I do have a couple of questions:
1 - On the post #523 you have several pictures of the air return. In particular, there is one that says "I started by cutting a 3/4" hole in the return". Where did you make that cut? I am assuming that the edges shown in the picture directly below that quote was sealed by by flushing the two edges and taping it shut. Where is the cut in relation to that picture?'
2 - What is a dead box? I see it in your design and the pictures, but I don't think I have heard that discussed in the thread. In one the pictures of your dead box, there is a flexible hose coming down form the I beams, and one headed toward the vent. What is the electrical item (silver with electrical inputs on it) in between the two hose connections? Is this one of the items in your new Air Conditioning system that you were discussing earlier?
3 - And finally, why did you decide to go with the Whisper Clips? There seem to be many different clips out on the market, why did you make the choice you did? In particular, over the Green Glue clips that are made by the same company?
