Insulation Installation

My insulation lesson:

1. Cut the bundles to fit exactly--
any spaces will let air flow through and
stray drafts will haunt you
the rest of your days
in this house

2.Staple the paper sides to the beams
to act as a moisture shield
when the roof is freezing
and the rooms below are
cozy and warm

3. Attempt not to breathe in the fiberglass--
but there will be much coughing nevertheless.
Watch cotton candy tufts blow out the window
and wonder where all those toxins

4. Be thankful for the clouds in the rafters
that inside this house is a little bit of heaven
one more layer of protection
against the chilly world

Ahhhh, these photos bring back memories of itchy eyes, scratchy skin, lots of sneezing, and watching those toxins spew forth as I coughed...but that was another time. My house is now warm, and I feel so good knowing that you are enjoying some of my experiences as well. May whoever dwells within your walls be warm in the winter and cool in the summer!
