(Originally published February 20, 2007)
Got the insulation all in this past weekend. I actually wasn't as miserable a task as I had been led to believe. A little itchy, but there was more discomfort from having to work in long sleeves (here in Southern California we're having an unseasonably warm spell) than from the fibers. I think it helped that I was using the type with the kraft paper facing.
My wall studs are actually 8'-4" so the batts came up a little short. Had to go back and fill in a little more at the bottom.
