Point is, if you gown up right your less likely to take a bite or nail in the a** or knee or EYE which is most painful. All's well though, "google" obviously was a freudian slip probs cuz I hate going in but I get your joke and don't mind, friend.
Well at least someone has a sense of humor. I wasn't digging, I just got a small innocent laugh out of it and made the mistake of going public with it. I try to hold my comments but once in a while I just can't help myself. Seems like there is always someone lurking in the background waiting for an opportunity to jump a person's asss for no good reason. Carry on, I appreciate your apprehensions.

Bud. that may have been a joke. but it really is getting that way. this country is turning into a bunch of panssie ass's.

but, the reason i am asking for ways to do what i want = is so i don't make a BIG FREAKING MESS after i get done up there. 20 mins to do the job, and 2 hours to clean up = . regular cloths, that cellulose will stick like no ones business. one of the hazmat suits = a quick brush off and i'm done. and chances are that i will have to be up & down a few times getting what i need to do the job = walking all through the house while covered in paper, however clean it is, will just get the chit all over the place.

so. what i am thinking. one off those toe to hood suits, and some large cardboard pieces (to make it easier to wiggle in there). should make short(er) work of get'n-it-done. now, what i will need to actually do the job, god only knows.

i got up there today. just an exploritory mission. i had a bunch of large cardboard that i laid out. so not only did that help me from getting very dirty, it very much helping support me and made it much easier to get down to where i had to get. i also had on a $3 painter suit on.

anyway. i didn't move anything around. and i didn't see any problems. i have to wait till its colder out, about 50d right now, so that my temp gun can pick up on the warm area. probably turkey day weekend.

i got up there yesterday. temp gun was a BIG help. turns out there was a 2"x2" hole in a top plate. and it was connected to the hidden ceiling above the not yet touched bathroom and BR closets. so, come spring, i am going to remove the old P&L ceiling, air seal and insulate.

here is what i am dealing with. the left window is the laundry room, it isn't much wider than that window. the back corner of the house with the bare spot on the roof, it has some insulation. but other than that i have not touch that area yet...
right window is a bedroom. and where the bare spot is, is where i did the fix. the fix that obviously i didn't completely fix. but i did make the bare spot much smaller. to the right of that bare spot, where you can see the boarded up used to be window (decades ago) = there are 2 closets right there, and in front of those, towards the center of the house, is the bathroom. these ceilings i have not touched. though there is old insulation piled up there.

oh. i have noticed a 3-4 minute extension in the time that the furnace is off. so, when i do get those leaks fixed, that should add 5-6 min to that. so that would be 9 min on, and 30 min off. at 30deg outside temp.
