Can I put Roxul over Sheetrock on the interior?
I was planning on creating a built in window seat/bed in a bonus room over the garage. We just purchased the house and I am guessing It’s likely one of the coldest parts of the house in the winter. It’s just above the garage doors. Likely has little insulation in the floor, vaulted ceiling so probably R13 at best. The house was built in 1991 +/-.
I am toying with the idea of furring out and insulating with some Roxul boards around the window and vaulted ceiling area. I was going to just put it right on top of the sheet rock and cover it up with bead board or something similar. My question is will mounting it right over the sheetrock cause any problems? The attached file will show the overall affect I am striving for. I’ll likely build it out of ikea components and plywood.
