Insulation

Dsc 0005-14We finally passed our rough electrical inspection last week, so this week we were ready for insulation. Since we are doing radiant we wanted everything to be super insulated. Having a flat roof also posed some unique problems as well. The ceiling bays either have to be individually vented to the exterior (both a pain and very ugly) or we had to use an icynene type spray in insulation. Even though the latter was the more expensive, it was really our only choice. We went with Superior Insulation for all the work. The connector ceiling got 6 inches of spray on plus the inch that is above the joists on top, which puts it at about R44. All the walls got R19, and the rest of the ceiling got 2 inches of spray, and R30 batting, which puts it around R42 plus the built up foam on top.Unfortunately they forgot to do one wall, our window box, and our sky lights. We have been trying since tuesday to get them back, and they should be here this morning. Hopefully drywalling will start this morning too. Dsc 0008-8 Dsc 0007-10
