And Insulation....A Whole Lotta Insulation...

The latest addition to our house is insulation.  The insulation in the ceiling isn't finished yet, but the walls are done.  We upgraded to blown in insulation for the exterior walls.  For the interior walls, we weren't expecting any additional insulation, but our builder did install insulation all along the wall between the master suite and the rest of the house and around the other bathrooms and the laundry room.  So, that was a nice surprise.  This should go a long way to dampen sound in the house.  We also have insulated the garage as well with standard insulation on the walls that don't touch heated / cooled living spaces.

  1. This is great! Your whole house was insulated, from the bedrooms to the garage. You are sure to save a lot in electric bills with this. I am just wondering as to how soon you can have your ROI insulating your whole house. Please do update us and share your cost-effective home projects, so that many people might follow your lead.

  2. Looks like all is in place over there! With the ceiling left to be insulated, that is. Since walls occupy 60% to 70% of the home, it's safe to say that you're 70% done with the insulation. That should help keep moral at a high level! :)
