Anyone up for an insulating party?
This is what you will look like! Except cooler.
It feels like it's been cold for so long! I think I'm getting use to it. It's almost time to start stuffin' the 15" wide stud walls with lots of insulation. I would like to start on the outer insulation layer, so the plumber & electrician can do rough ins on the inner wall. Anyone up for hanging out, music cranked [provided we have power] and putting in batts of roxul mineral wool insulation between studs? I chose to use roxul as it is something I can do myself without the messy-ness of blow-in cellulose. And I can seal all the hard to get pieces with spray foam as we go. I will provide gloves, eye protection, dust masks and food & drink! And of course, eternal gratitude and good karma. I'm hoping we might start December 11th, thinking the framing will be complete and the house more or less closed in.
