Posted By: neilgorswiftHi,Soon to be building my passive house from Durisol blocks. Where do i place the airtight layer:1. Inside - using wet coat of plaster. Not found a suitable sealed back box/cable detail. Loads of timber frame examples though2. Outside - do i need the extra cost of a parge coat and how can i rely on there being no cracks after some years. Also wall plate detail is tricky when trying to link across to roof membrane.

Posted By: neilgorswiftThat sounds good would it be something like illbruck Butyl Tape Fleece? So, as long a you connect the tape to the adhesive below the back box your sorted?
Posted By: neilgorswiftI assume you have buildings constructed using this method that have achieved close to passive house levels of airtightness?
Posted By: neilgorswiftI don't think its anything special. Could you let me know the name of some of the standard products?
I would have thought using the external render would be a lot less tricky as there are less "elements" to attach to the structure?
