It looks like there may be some similarities, but I believe that Roxul is not the same as Rockwool. I think the company should be able to give the right information.
Keith, after watching their video I agree with you, this insulation is not the same. I will buy the Roxul hands down. Here is their video.

Click on their video.

Hi jl, how are you?

Yeah, all sorts of things are happening now. I spent some of the day trying to get the cedar up on a very awkward part of the guest bed room...nearly finished.

People have been coming and going all day, so it has been on and off for the work...you know how that goes.

Good to hear from you again...

Nothing much in the way of a sunset tonight, but better than the rain & clouds of the past few days.

Except for the last triangle at the very top of the ceiling, all the cedar is in. The last bits are being glued together first. They will get nailed up in the morning.

Let's hope for not quite so many intrusions into the workday tomorrow...

Your ceiling looks great, I wasn't sure how you were going to finish it off but now I see, I like it. I agree that is a beautiful sunset, thanks buddy.

Thanks Jim.

Well, the big day is here...just got a call from the trucking company in Victoria.

The 4328 pounds of tiles are on the truck and should be delivered to the boat yard at 10:30 this morning. I will be over there early waiting for the driver.

They were even good enough to put their driver on the phone to me so we could make sure everything went smoothly.

Must remember to take the camera!!!

Wish me luck!

Well, I just got back to the island with the first ton of tiles. That cleaned out one pallet, the other is waiting patiently for me to grab it tomorrow.

I have loaded 700 lbs. on to the skiff, and now I just wait for the tide to get high enough. Once the first skiff load is offloaded at the log lift, I will hustle up and get two more loads to finish up, by which time I might be moderately tired.

By about 6 o'clock it should be OK, and will be good for at least another 2 hours after that. Tomorrow and the next day are equally high, but the highs will be a little later of course.

But now, I am off to the bay for a nice cool swim.

You are amazing, I would have never been able to do 1/3 of that. We do look forward to your pictures.
