Buried in Fiberglass Snow

Our insulation was sucking pretty hard, so we went ’round, got estimates and recommendations, and then I made the appt. Yesterday, in the afternoon, they called to confirm coming today at 8 am. WHA?

So we got everything out of the attic. Not that much stuff compared to most people, probably, but the camping gear, scuba/snorkel gear, a crapload of Thomas Dolby t shirts…..

Then DLJ took up the floorboards the previous owner had put in, planning to put them back in his own configuration when everything was done.

HAH.

Our insulation was so woefully thin….the new stuff … you can’t see the studs or where the floor used to be. At all. It looks like a 1 foot+ snowfall in the attic. Sweet, wonderful insulation to help us keep our home warm and hopefully bring down the overall heating bills.

But now we can’t put the wood, or any of the stuff….back. NOW what?

Not exactly a crisis….but a guestroom full of stuff.

    That’s one of the things we *are* grateful for – one of the previous owners of our house (certainly not the most recent before us) boarded the attic, and insulated it. The attic is *freezing*… which i guess means the insulation between the ceiling / flooring works!?

    Oh crap… look at this comment? How old am I – discussing insulation ?? Might as well get a pair of slippers and go shoot myself lol
