insulation questions for our new home
currently about to start our new home construction... about the only thing we're trying to nail down is the attic insulation. we live in ne oklahoma for those interested in our climate. we are doing 2x6 walls (where most homes here are still built using 2x4). we have already decided not to incure the cost of foam in the walls. but our wall dilemma is whether to bat the walls or blow? and thats not as discouraging as myself trying to decide on the attic! if we blow the attic we will be doing r50 and our roof decking will be backed with a radiant barrier. but im thrown as to whether it would be worth spending the extra $3500 to foam the roof instead? we already have our hvac set up for high efficiency, so we wont incure any upgrade costs there (will be running 2 16seer condensers outside and 2 2-stage 96% furnace units in the attic. the home is a single story (which makes me think the additional cost for foam may not be worthy) that is 3000sqft... any help, comments and opinions will be greatly appreciated!!!
btw... we also plan to have a caulk party and seal every possible opening we can as well...
