I bought champion/redman supergood cents, energy star home back in 2002. The siding is james hardie panel, i upgraded to 2x6 exterior walls. My question is how can they meet the requirments without any tyvek or housewrap? Its just 1/4 of siding and then insulation, did i get ripped off? Also, the bottom plate of the outside walls, they only used a 1x4 so the outter 1 1/2” is open to the floor joist cavity. This also doesnt seem right. Has anyone else bought a home like this? Thank you for your time.
