Is there a way to run resstock model(s) by inputing a building id or a list of building ids listed in metadata.tsv?

"The format is that the first column is the building_id, usually starting at one and incrementing from there, and following columns each represent a building characteristic."

building_id is the first column in buildstock.csv, so you should be able to identify the buildings you want using that field.

I'm not sure why you are using metadata.csv instead of buildstock.csv. It's been a few months since I've used ResStock and I don't actively work on/with that project right now, so the documentation is your best bet. You can always verify the buildings that are sampled when you run ResStock.

You can reference the precomputed sampler here.

Thank you @sashadf1. If using the precomputed sampler, I need to provide a buildstock.csv with all inputs. Looks like most of the columns in metadata.csv correspond to the columns in buildstock.csv, with some exceptions maybe because the buildstock and metadata version I used were different. So I ended up copying all these inputs from metadata.csv to buildstock.csv. Is this the right approach or is there a way I can use provide building_id as an argument in the yml file?
