Cape Cod Roof Insulation
I know this isn't a new topic, but I have a question. I inspected my attic and found that the only insulation in the roof rafters is where the vent isn't. I am guessing its about R13. My area calls for R49. Now I am only talking about the area between the knee walls and the upper attic. My plan to increase the insulation by putting up 2x6 or 2x8 on edge perpendicular to the roof trusses over the exsisting drywall. Then insulate the new space and put up new dry wall. Does this sound reasonable?
