Installing insulation, 10/8/2010
Our building contractor is currently having insulation installed in the home. As the photos below show, they are using unfaced, batting insulation on the walls, covered with a polyethlene film for a vapor retarder. Batts are pre-cut to fit in the standard spaces between studs on 8' or 9' walls.

Hall Bedroom, showing insulation under eaves, where blown attic insulation won't reach.
Garage is also insulated.
Insulation is flexible and can be placed behind wiring and pipes.
