If you had to do it again?
The attic air sealing and insulation would have been implemented differently. Spray foam was avoided so the thermal barrier at the attic floor made duct runs and air sealing more difficult.

ZIPS Insulated Sheathing
Huber Engineered Woods
For installation convenience and exceptional, long-term performance, the all-in-one ZIP System® R-Sheathing panel provides a new approach to sealing and insulating the building envelope. One panel delivers thermal, air and moisture resistance, while providing excellent strength and durability.
Double s2x4 studs with 3 1/2" gap already reduced thermal bridging for above grade walls but ZIPS insulated sheathing was chosen for added thermal break plus the long term performance of the sheathing.
