Attic insulation

Filed under: Uncategorized — aroundthebend @ 8:06 pm

We blew 180 bags of cellulose (shredded and treated recyled paper) into the attic.  Marianne and Dennis filled the hopper of the blower and Harry crawled around in the attic with the hose installing the insulation.  As you can see that was a dirty job …. but …. someone has to do it.  The end result is 15+ inches of insulation giving us R50 in the attic to go with our R35+ straw walls, and a whole lot of aching muscles.

  1. Wow – things are still moving ahead that is GREAT!! I think that you have also had good weather, is that right? The frog is very much needed and should actually be fed daily. It is good to be a part of this process with you. All the best.
