I have a old farmhouse (1860's) Ther have been several additions over the years, all more then 60= years ago. My area of concerl is upstairs. One addition is above the kitchen. The addition is one story with a attic area above it. That part abutts my bedroom. I am wondering how to insulate this area. Wisconsin is my location so is is a important issue.
My questions are:
What is insulated? Do I do the wall that is that wall to my bedroom or do I have the insulation up the angled walls and do the outermost wall?
I would think i should place the insulation over the "floor" of the attic. But do I also go up the sloped walls? Do I leave a space at the top for air escape? I understand the other part of the attic that is above the 2 story portion. i reviewed the videos.
also, I would like to use the space for storage. What can I place over the insulation to allow me to walk on it? Are pall Can I hang a rod and keep clothes in there hanging? Thanks, Sue
