Who did the lion's share of insulating? Me. Talk about tedious, but to be honest, I tend to get those jobs. The crap jobs that require little skill, no know-how, and a lot of lifting. Luckily, the insulation wasn't heavy, but unfortunately, it was thin. For one reason or another we couldn't order the fancy Rmax insulation in a 2 or 3 inch thickness, and if I remember correctly, those sizes are only available on the west coast. Shla! So before I start bragging about how I cut and insulated the house mostly by myself, let me explain why that is so impressive. The reason being that I used 1/2 inch thick Rmax, the only thing available, and that means 5 layers of insulation needed to fill the walls. Five. Not only is our house longer, but for some reason (I'm still not sure why) we added twice as many rafters, these factors only adding to the monotonous chore that is insulating.
Notice above, my loving husband, smiling as if he did all the work. Sniff.
And below, just showing off more of my work.
