Padding the Attic

The day that all the insulation was removed from the attic the house was freezing! We had already ordered replacement insulation but had to wait until the old knob and tube was replaced to lay it.
The old attic insulation was removed on a Saturday. The following Friday two pallets of insulation were delivered to the house. The next day the wiring guys came to install new wiring (goodbye knob and tube - hello 2009 wiring!). That same night we laid the new insulation. Before all this was completed the furnace would run non-stop. When we woke up on Sunday morning not only was the furnace not running - but the house was actually warm!! Yay for energy efficiency!
