    One other question.....
    As I was looking at the pictures again, what is the white material at the end of the insulation by the eaves? I couldn't figure out what that was from the pic.

    Also added a couple pics of the "coffin" that sits on top of the stairs when they are closed.

    That is actually the rear of the facia board (gutters are on the outside of it) which is Azek. When I had the new roof and chinmey put on, I wanted the trim as much as possible to be Azek, no painting and if it gets chipped, its white all the way through, great stuff.

    OK, I see exactly how the box is made, pretty cool. Looks easy too, thank you!!

    You could use a barometer(found in any garden section of a store), but It may not be very accurate unless the rooms are completely airtight.

    The other is look at the weather channel. What's the humidity outside? Most buildings(I'm guessing) that have a lot of "soft" building products such as drywall/ or carpet of wood probably retain a higher humidity level than metal framing etc.

    Don't know though. I think it's always good to have a dehumidifier.

    Get one and run it for 30 minutes. If the collection tank fills up quickly, then YOU GOTS LOTS OF WATER! heh
