Insulating a skylight shaft
I was in a house with a skylight shaft that was insulated with standard wall batts on the attic side. The insulation is exposed. I would say the effective value was slightly above nil.
What would be an effective strategy for insulating the shaft? The shaft is about 6' in height and 4 foot to a side. As a retrofit project we are talking about moving materials to the 2nd floor of the house and through a scuttle in a walk-in closet.
What R level would you shoot for and how would you do it? Again it will be quite a chore to get materials to the workspace.
