Batts in the Attic

Thats unfaced batts. After attempting to remove the blown-in inuslation from below - disasterous... I rented a 15Hp gas powered vacuum. Still lots of work, had to remove the fiberglass batts to access the blown in cellulose/newspaper/fiberglass mess.

The insulation goes down the hose to the vac and out to a "bag". The bags are huge (a picture of one in the back of the red truck), two bags did the trick. They are virtually unmovable once they are in the truck and suceptible to ripping if manhandled... big adventure at the landfill transfer station.

Bids for windows are in, looks like drywall, taped and texured is $1.30 a square foot. Otherwise progress is slow, if not steady.
