Insulating scissor truss
Hi, I am building my first house, what a project that has turned out to be but that’s for another day. Anyways, our great room has scissor trusses for a nice pitched ceiling. I would like to have at least 24″ of insulation to keep things nice and toasty in the winter. There is a 4′ overhang outside on either end. I nailed a 24″ high plywood leaving a vent space above where the red is on the layout. My question is what material and how to go about it. To use the high density cellulose is has to be contained by some mesh? Any input appreciated.
