And in some vases people heat one room & not another
My last house I insulated all walls for the back bedroom since I didn't heat it
My understanding is you are required to have an access door to the "attic"
As you have seen my Project Showcase, you guys are gonna get a load of me! This house is chock full of surprises! Wait till you see the stairs! No steam shower and bath was still central in original house. Not sure if officially an "attic," but the insulation is in-between ceiling joists. Space appears to be about 3-4 feet tall max.
Good thing you told me as now I will need to check and see if local code requires an access door. Not sure if you have to be able to access all unconditioned spaces. I will be fearful moving around in there since they have it super deep with blow-in insulation you can't see the joists. Owner builder did work himself without any code research I see. House seems to be full of overkill.
