My Aching Knees
My son-in-law had some surplus insulation from a demolition project. It looked like a lot, but I needed a lot more. My garage has never been "finished" so I hoped insulating might make the house warmer. I started on the west wall because it gets extremely hot in the summertime. The walls are 10 feet tall and I had a 7 foot ladder. That means having to stand on the top step to reach the top of the wall. I started by rolling the insulation out on the garage floor, measuring and cutting the length I needed. Up the ladder to stuff it between the studs, staple both sides working down the ladder to the floor. Then down on my knees again to cut. It's a good feeling to look at one wall finished. I hope I can walk tomorrow!
