Old Victorian Attic Insulation?
Hi all, first post on Garden Web...
I am gearing up to insulate the attic of my 1890's Victorian. There is zero insulation in the house and I was told this should be the first job. I am planning to lay in fiberglass batts but have two questions. First, the rafters are non standard and spaced differently throughout the attic (usually 16"-20" apart). Should I just trim two sixteen inch batts to fit? Second there is no roof vent that I can see. Looking under the eaves I can see daylight in spots so there is some form of soffet venting. Do I need to take any more venting precautions before insulating the attic floor?
Thanks for filling in these blanks for me!
