> keep the sheathing above > keep the sheathing above the dew point all winter long. Picking R19 insulation in a stud wall and R11.25 of exterior insulation we get 37%. Pick a simple temperature of 0F (zone 6 gets much colder than this). .37 * 70F = 26F. 70F air at 30% RH (lowest recommended level) has a dew point of 37F much higher than 26F.
