We decided to "forget about it" and just get a quote from the insulation company. Surprisingly it was much more economical than we originally expected. So we expanded the insulation upgrade if you will to include pretty much all of the interior walls and added spray foam above the garage in addition to upgrading the padding. Our daughters room will be above the garage and we know how cold it gets in the bedroom above the garage in our current home so we took the extra step there.
You already know how we get about attention to detail so my Husband goes down Friday to check out the work and sees that two areas are not insulated per our request. We call the company and she says okay we will take care of it immediately. All the drywall in place ready to go. When we went back down Friday evening so I could write our prayers and blessings one area is still not done, the main wall that needs it in the Family room because of the main drain that according to fellow bloggers is super loud.
We call the rep back but of course there is no answer it is like 7pm by this time. I was up at like 4am with the baby and I decided to text her the picture of the location and to my surprise she responds around 7am saying the guys will be there that morning to put it in. They showed up and took care of it.
One thing I will tell you is that the drywallers will move the insulation if it is causing them a problem hanging the drywall so you might want to hang around if you can to make sure they don't take it out. Here ar a few of the locations we added insulation you can also see it in the photos of our prayers and blessings in all of the rooms.
We had the door to the 4th bedroom moved to the other hall because it will be the baby's room we didn't want his door to be at the top of the steps.
