6/18/09 – Holy Insulation, Batt Man!

Insulation started going in! It’s thick stuff – R21! This house is going to be so well insulated, we’ll find it difficult to justify running the heat that often. 🙂

Also of note, firestopping was applied in all penetrations between floors. It’s interesting how the walls that face outside have fiberglass insulation and the ceiling between the garage and the upstairs has cotton insulation. Hmm. I wonder why that is?

Another strange detail are these cardboard baffles that are strung between the roof joists at the ridge vents. Strange detail. I would expect these to get soggy over time. I may be up in the attic in a few years replacing these…
