Insulating Behind Existing Drywall


1 - remove the drywall, install f/g, put up new drywall;
2 - pump foam into the wall - expansion will remove the drywall for you;
3 - go to the apron store & buy the cellulose - they'll let you use the machine for free.

i'm in atlanta & louisville is too far for me to come help you,,, the yellow pages are loaded w/insulation contractors, tho,,, just because i'm curious - why the interest in insulating the walls 4 yrs later ? ? ? all the above was available back then
