Insulation & Drywall

The latest video showing the spray foam insulation process and drywall phase.  Because our ceiling rafters are 2×6″ (house was built in the 50’s) we had to use spray foam insulation in order to get the updated code R-value in that small of a cavity.  The walls could be batt insulation (cheaper), but there wasn’t much of a savings since most of our insulating was in the ceiling.  It was also faster to have the spray foam guys just spray it all at one time in one day.  Matt (my husband) and our contractor Bruce helped to shave off some of the excess so the drywall would attach to the studs smoothly.  We hired out the drywall (the mudding/sanding is such a mess – who wants to do that themselves for such a large project?)!  It always makes a huge difference to have drywall up.  That’s the turn in my mind from the rough-in phase to the finish-phase.
