I left the house at 8:30 with no insulators in sight, and came back at 1:00 PM to see this much warmer and more air-tight house.
The first layer is this expanding foam and then it’s backed with fiberglass batts. I was impressed with the speed and efficiency of the crew (all of my wood doors and windows were properly covered with nary a dot of insulation on them) but then the insulation “scheduler” called me to tell me they won’t be able to come back until Wednesday.
I’m pretty sure I managed to give him a blank stare over the phone and then said, “Just so you know… my drywallers are coming. on. Thursday.” And I think he very quickly realized he was talking to someone who incapacitated their right hand with all the air-nailing they did over the weekend to get prepared for the insulators and drywallers that were coming this week.
And then he promised me that under no circumstances would he hold up my drywall installation, or believe me when I tell you I’d have yet another use for that air nailer.
