Above, structural metal inside corners are utilized for drywall, allowing insulation into the corners of a room (instead of studs). Left, ceiling boxes for lighting have been foamed in the attic and caulked from below. During the blower door test, the only bit of air was felt around the electrical ceiling boxes - in our collective opinion, the weakest leak, despite their small size and foam "helmut". The issue will be remedied, according to the builder, before the final blower door test.

Three layers of R15 Roxul have been applied to the exterior walls for a total of R45. The interior walls have one layer of R15. Drain lines, PEX and wiring have been surrounded by insulation as well. Needless to say, it is very quiet in the house. The insulation inspection passed without issue.
