But the fact that they took it down from 7600 - 6500 in a couple of hours is motivating. I am to go around and make sure that air gaps around the sills where they meet the foundation are sealed, and continue rolling out batts of insulation in the crawlspace under the addition.
Question - has anyone ever insulated the floor joists of a crawlspace where the joists are not regular? Under the 1750's main house, a bunch of the original beams (trees) have additional support added so I'll need narrower pieces of insulation. Can I do that with backed insulation or will I tear my hair out trying to make narrow strips out of it?
All in all I think it was a good experience. My old hearths were huge culprits, but my windows were surprisingly good. I've got some instant improvements, a bunch of new lightbulbs, and a plan... can't ask for more can I?
