The kids are at summer camp this week so I’m tiring myself out working on the house.

Soon these walls will be 6 inches thicker

Soon these walls will be 6 inches thicker

Tomorrow Element Spray Foam is coming to insulate the house! It has been a lot of work to get ready for this day and I haven’t had time to write.

That’s why I thought I would shoot a video for you.

In it I show you around the basement and explain where the spray foam will go and how we’re insulating the walls down there.

I also demonstrate how tired I am!

Please remember that I am not an expert so if you are interested in doing something like this, make sure you get professional advice before you proceed!

  1. What a HUGE undertaking. I’m so impressed by your family’s commitment to this project, and so impressed by how it is turning out! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Very cool. I llike how you insulate the insulation! Question: what R factor are your windows?

    • Thanks Heidi! I’ll look at the sticker on the windows again, but I can tell you that windows, being essentially a hole in your house no matter how thick they are, are not given an R-value. Instead, they have a number which tells you how much heat they lose. I’ll get you that number. Stay tuned.
