How to insulate a ceiling

It has now come to the time to insulate the ceiling in the living room. Fingers crossed this will retain heat and save on our heating bills. With the ceiling amended with additional wooden beams and a network created to stuff the insulation behind we are ready to insulate.

Old insulation is notorious for being made from fibre glass and these fibres can be a complete nightmare and can often irritate the skin. Modern insulation rolls are not only cheaper and more efficient but also a lot safer. However not wishing to take any chances my partner used gloves, glasses and a mask when putting the insulation in to avoid any nasties.

Now to box in the insulation with plaster board and that's another job off the massive list of restoring a whole house.
