My house was built in 1925 and has a full attic. Currently the attic has a floor with insulation under it. The floor stops about 12 inches from each side as this is where the eave vents are comming in. There are 2 ceiling vents (non powered) 1 at each end and in the front there is a vent in the wall, about 24 inches square, and a window on the opposite end. I would like to convert the attic into a homes office, but my concern is how to insulate the ceiling while keeping the air flow. I will, of course, replace the vent in the wall with a window to match the other end.
Currently we noticed that in the winter time when it is very cold ice sometimes forms on the nails sticking thru the ceiling.
So I guess what I would like to know is how to properly vent the attic prior to putting in the insulation and dry wall.
Note: I live in north east Ohio.
