Cellulose under Batts
Have the first baby due in November and I'm in the process of 'upgrading' the guest bedroom to a nursery. Have added cans (IC rated, airtight), all new electrical, GFCI, and repaired the walls extensively.
I now need to make a decision in regards to insulation. The previous owners installed R-40 batts above the 1950's collapsed fiberglass- and there is no vapor barrier.
1) Install a plastic 6 mil vapor barrier and pray I don't go thru the ceiling, staple it in place and then blow in cellulose insulation, reinstall the batts
2) Skip the vapor barrier and do as #1
3) Skip the cellulose and just roll the batts back.
No matter what I need to build some shelving up there to store all the junk, err, hobbies that I'm not into anymore- so that will go over the insulation on raised platforms.
Suggestions are most welcome- Thank you, Jason.
