Finding the best route
Hope this is in the correct forum. So I’m getting ready to insulate the walls. Blowing cellulose into my old house. I’ve watched the videos and think I am about ready to do this.
I’ve been thinking, and I had read an article but cannot find it now, about blowing into the walls from the basement and attic. Anyone done this? I imagine the down sides would be that the baseplate and top plate for your wall would have to be drilled through, house is platform, and I mean floors were laid, the. walls were put on top of the flooring and second story built the same way in 1900. the upside would be no holes to really patch just puta plug back in the hole and done. Drill bits would last longer because not drilling through masonry plaster.
could I just remove the baseboards and blow through that space? I’m looking for simple less intrusive way. We’ll be living in the house and I have 4 kids running around. Just missing out loud seeing if there are easier ways to do it with less mess in the living space for the house
