The room above my garage is cold in the winter (which is just around the corner). Bad design of the heating also (different topic); the heating vents go through the garage, up the exterior wall into that room...
Back to the room. I want to remove the ceiling in the garage, ensure it is wind-proof, then blow insulation between the joists, redo the drywall...
BUT: The plans in my house say that they used an asbestos sheet above the ceiling, then used 2 inch wool.
Any good ways to remove the asbestos w/o calling in a pro? We will still be living in the house when the work is done.
When was this house built? If you're blowing in insulation you have no need to remove the ceiling. You cut holes and blow the insulation into them with a hose. There's no need to remove the ceiling or disturb the asbestos.
I'm not quite sure what you mean by wind proof.
As for the heat, if you're not going to finagle with the ductwork, just put in a portable heat source like those oil filled radiators. There are other more efficient systems but they have a fairly large initial output of funds. Like a wall hung boiler that feeds baseboards.
