insulation, tis blow-in the wind

our LEED project, westbourne, is really starting to come together. we had the insulation installed last week and for the exterior walls and the roof/ceiling we used the blown in from greenfiber as discussed in a previous post. here are a couple of action shots;

step one is installing the mesh on the inside of all the exterior walls.  

step two is cutting small holes in the mesh and inserting the vacuum hose and blowing the insualtion in. it took about three days for the complete install. 

kind of like a vacuum hose in reverse.
