insulation for bonus room over garage


Sorry for the non reply. surgery came up and the surgery didn't go as planned so i was down for longer then to be expected. I finially worked on the project this past weekend. So far all the firberglass insulation is out. Blown in cellulose was blown under the floor rafters. I capped off one side of the rafters and just need to do th other side to prevent airflow from going under the bonus room floor. I installed ridge vents along with atticfoil up the room rafters. Spray foamed all cracks but still a little bit more to do. once i put the roxul up can i put atticfoil over it or do i need a vapor barrier?

The insulation on the left was on the walls(notice no R-value is noted)


space in between rafters blocked and sealed



This one is kinda busy here. It's the going up to the angled wall where the top knee wall meets. Installed insulation foam board as well as blocking off the insulation of the angled wall and using foam as well. You can see the vents as well as part of the atticfoil on the roof rafters

I would love to read what you posted but the stupid side bar for the adds blocked half your post. I hope what you did worked.
