I can easily feel the benefits already.
Thank you for the info - it is an impressive space.

Very impressive Ivan. Keeping the boxes is one of those very important things that many people don't think about.

Default Uncommonly organzed

Ivan - we are considering having our attic foamed to bring it into the heat/cool envelope. A complete sealing - soffit vents, gable vents, ridge vent.

I see you used bats in the rafters. Is your attic space fully sealed or ventilated?

The bats make a much cleaner look than the exposed foam.[/QUOTE]

I built my current house in 2008 with a fully sealed attic. It has Icynene foam on the underside of the plywood roof deck snd no soffit vents. A couple of my A/C ducts have intentional small leaks. My house is waterfront in Miami with a southern exposure so it has an enormous heat load, in the summer especially.

The house is incredibly comfortable. No warm or cold spots and back when I was calculating, I figured I was saving 40% off my electric bill but that also included other energy saving measures. Because my house has roof trusses instead of framed construction I donít have the kind of storage space that houses with framed attics do but the effect on the living space below is really great. I highly recommend it.

Sorry about this slight detour from the main subject of the thread.

Ivan, your dedication to organization is impressive, here as well as in your systems. I wish I could get more organized! I just bought a new house and I haven't looked in the attic yet lol. Even if there is a lot of space, the access is small.
