Venting foam board insulation
Dear Ron and Chris,
Thanks, all. Talked to the owner this morning and she wants 4" of beam left exposed--clearly impossible as I'm going for an R-factor of 30, so I'm going your route and drywalling over the studs, then adding "fake" beams on top of the drywall.
I appreciate your help. And I'll check out the sister site you suggested, Chris. After years of renovating my own old homes, I've begun working for friends and referrals on small, contained projects: tiling, drywalling, insulating, etc. I'm no pro--there are many things I can't do yet. I'm learning as I go, AND calling in pros when I hit something I can't handle. But I'll check out the contractor site to see what I can pick up and continue my education.
