DIY Dense-Packing of Cellulose
If I built a Mooney wall (2×6 with 2×2 furing) and used a typical low powered cellulose insulation blowing machine from a Home Depot or Lowes would it help if I installed not just the netting but one layer of sheetrock at a time to help with the dense packing? Dense pack the wall-space behind the first layer of sheetrock as tight as I can (without bowing the sheet rock, maybe set something in from of the sheetrock while I am blowing to keep it from bowing out?) then add the second layer of sheet rock (9′ ceilings) and blow the remainder of the wall? Has anybody done this, does it sound like it would help with the dense packing?
Would adding a horizontal layer of netting help with settling.
Would rolling it down from the top side as I go help with the dense packing.
I notice they have wet pack insulation to seemingly help glue it in place and stop it from settling. Is there anyway to apply the spray independently of the machine, say after each time I roll it down?
I know all of this is labor intensive but it would be mostly my labor and I am retired, bored, and not yet decrepit.
Thanks for any experience or advice you can offer.
