Welcome to the forums!

Where are you located?

Is this an attic application or a cathedral ceiling?

So you have converted the garage to a living space? Cathedral ceilings require a ridge BEAM, not a board.... scroll down a couple of pages: http://books.google.com/books?id=E5S...raming&f=false

Have you a permit?
And, welcome to the forums!

This space will not be finished with Sheetrock or wallboard.......No, I'm not trying to be a smart guy or surly.....I'd just like to know if I should use faced or unfaced insulation

Look up "radiant Barrier", you would probably be better off using that rather than insulation.

I don't mean to seem surly either, I just am.
