Prepping for Roof Insulation

The rafters are all up. However, the temperature is going to drop to normal February temperatures for a few days and there will be snow. Just before all this hits us, the crew have had time to prepare for insulating the roof. This will need two things:

  1. cutting the panels into the exact shapes required to fit in between the rafters; and
  2. a system for getting the heavy wood fibre insulation panels to where they are needed.

Both have been worked out. In particular, the crew managed to rig a combination trolley-pulley system using a ladder, that seems to work very well in getting the panels up to the roof. Now we just need some reasonable weather to get it done…
