Ms. Lorraine Garno

I have an old house (1918 ) located in the Midland, Michigan area. She has a Gambrel roof - which has no insulation, as does most of the upstairs. I am gutting the inside in order to insulate and add updated wiring. I am having trouble figuring how to hang the rolled insulation. I have installed the "Durovent " styrofoam to allow for moisture release. I have no choice but to use rolled insulation as I am on a very tight budget. I am doing most of the work alone. The weight of the insulation and the pitch of the roof is giving me a problem hanging the insulation. Any advice or ideas ?

Spray Foam. For the same cost & labor, Spray Foam comes in cheaper, plus creates a tighter Vapor Barrier.
