Technique for keeping the insulation in the ceiling during wall construction?
I'm working on splitting a large, finished, second floor room into two parts. As I get ready to frame the partition wall I have stumbled across a dilemma.
I have to cut a strip of the ceiling drywall out in order to snug up against the ceiling joists, but as soon as I make the cut, the spray cellulose insulation is going to come pouring through the hole!
Any techniques to keep the insulation at bay while I work to put this wall up?
If you are careful when you cut, and keep the vapor barrier intact, it should be able to hold up the insulation. It's hard to cut without damaging it though. An exacto knife or maybe a multi tool will make it easier.
