Insulation in a low pitch roof


I have a very low pitched roof on my house and desperately need to better insulate my home. I have been thinking about doing blown in insulation but only have 1 attic access point to try to do my entire house.

Any tips or advice?

What shapes the roof in?
May be able to use SIP roofing panels. Google it.
