Here's one for you allThis summer one of our house walls started to make breathing noises. At night it would get rather loud. You could distinctly hear inhales and exhales all night long. This scared the little woman very much. Then about fall time it just went away. What could it have been?MMC
Is your wall double skinned? PIB xx
2x6 stick built. Vinyl siding. Tyvek wrap. Particle board sheetingMMC
I had bees in My wall. They were ventilating their hive by constantly changing the direction of air flow.with their wings. There was a small wiring hole at the bottom of the wall outside and that was their way in outIt sounds just like breathing. So if you ever hear your walls breath don't fret. Chances are there is a logical explanation for itMMC
10 years ago we bought the most lovely yellow house with a wrap around porch. All the upgrades,wood floors, and apple trees in the backyard. At the top of a hill backing to walking trails and green space. It really was our dream home- only better. A few years in it became clear that it had spooks. They made clawing digging sounds in the walls. Then graduated to pounding on the doors and then they took night time residence inside the walk in attic which was directly above our bed. So anytime we needed to be up early in the morning there was stomping and thrashing around causing us to be exhausted. Turning the tv on and using closed caption to say their stupid jibberish. I was assaulted twice. This went off and on for 3 years before we moved (fled). The next door neighbor told us the previous owners 18 year old daughter got so sick she almost died in the house and nobody could figure out what was wrong with her. They resorted to hiring energy healers and catholic priests to save her. They had a remarkably bad divorce. Almost like War Of The Roses kind of bad. And that is how the house was up for sale. It sounds like a movie. But it really happened to us. So when I hear about breathing in the walls, based on my experience, this is all I can offer.
I would take bees any day!
mmc,do you have a basement,slab,pier&block,?what type of foundation construction do you have?
Block- cement footing on sandMMC
So you have floor joist covrered with plywood and the block footing is elavated above grade ?
If above is correct . It sounds like you Might' need more vents in your block footings.as a large temp difference between the outside and under your floor can cause a bellow effect,running up thru wall plate penatrationsElectrical,plumbing,havac,ect..clear any obstructions to your sub floor vents,or add more.
*Make shure your floor is properly insulated.
^^ yes, yes and yesFirst time in 18 years. Found the bees. They were in there heavyThanks for the ideasMMC
Here is a good idea MMC barrow a thermal scope and locate the central mass of the honey comb. Then get a beer tap and use a paddle bit to core thru the honeycomb then screw said tap to wall exterior and WALLA you have honey fresh from the spigot ! ha ha ha ha ;-)
^ super idea from a super friend !MMC
I have a mouse family that lives in one wallof my old house.They come in thru the stone&mortar part of the foundation.I can hear them sometimes....but they don't survive if they come in the house...I have 5 cats.
I would have loved to see dates on tombstones
