Your site is helpful and an encouragement for all. Thank you so much for building it. :) You have no idea how helpful it has been already, and I am just in the very beginning stage of the building process.

We used 1/2" foam board as the backing around the room upstairs and the walls surrounding the stairwell.  This provided a wall to attach the R-15 insulation batting to as well as some added insulation.

Johnson Insulation out of Belton came out and did the first round of insulation in two stages.  First, they went around and used a poly seal to foam around all wiring holes and plumbing that cut through the ceiling and exterior walls as well as at the base boards around the perimeter.  Next, they filled all the exterior walls with R-19 fiberglass batting and R-15 on the designated interior walls as a sound barrier.

The second round will include blowing the foam into the attic which we will do after the sheetrock has been prepared for painting.
