I love creating elegant software solutions to novel problems.

comment I have flies after painters came
Are these typical black flies? Or small flies like fruit flies? If they are fruit flies then they are not "getting in" but perhaps a piece of fruit was left in the trash bin... most citrus fruits are already full of eggs we just consume the fruit before the larval stage...

Is there living space on the other side of that?

comment What can I use to adequately insulate round rigid metal ducts?
I have found it easier and cheaper to actually wrap the entire round duct in an insulated flex duct and just "specially" wrap the points where it branches off.

comment Do we need to install shoe molding?
If you don't want shoe molding (as I didn't in my home) I undercut all the drywall, giving the wood an additional 1/2 inch of expansion space (as the possible expense of drafts)

comment Basement subfloor, how exactly should I do it?
Treated wood against concrete, and not constantly submerged isn't going to rot. If you have a stick framed house then you likely have treated wood against your footing.

@user15608 I have used Tyvek housewrap products but I don't know if they'd be appropriate for this use. Perhaps something like this? solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/Adhesives/Tapes/Promotions/…

I would paint the concrete with a sealant and then I would probably double-layer a vapor barring above them, under the plywood.
