The long and strange journey to transform our 1942 war cottage style house into a (circa) 1914 Craftsman bungalow, without going completely nutz.

Friday the 13th! Ooo!
I’ve been working on hanging insulation all week.A lot harder work than I had expected, especially around the plumbing and ductwork above the upstairs hallway.Except now, Dave says that we probably won’t get away with the craft-paper backed insulation up there.In general, you cannot leave the craft-paper ‘exposed’ because it is considered a fire hazard.Most of the rest of the insulation will be covered with drywall, expect in that dead-air space above the hallway.Grrr!Don’t know for sure.Dave suggested I call the city.Hopefully either we can just get away with it or we can cover it with some other kind of material.I’m seriously hoping I don’t have to remove what I worked so hard to get up there.In the mean time I plan on just finishing what is left, which is above the master closet, and the walls.Hopefully I can get it done this weekend.
