How do I insulate my cathedral ceiling?
I have a beach house in NH, 24 x 36 with 2-ft. overhangs. The entire house is cathredraled using 6 pitch 4×6 trusses and sheathed with 1×8 T&G boards. Each roof side is 15′ x 44′.
There is no insulation except for 1/2-inch Homosote sheets between the trusses which are stuccoed over. The roofing is relatively new (5 yrs). So I would balk at tearing it off.
Cost is a big factor here. We don’t have a lot of money. I have no problem putting a new ceiling on the inside but I need a cost-effective way of insulating the 4-ft. bays. Any help would be appreciated.
