This blog documents the progress of our super-cool, pre-fab home "somewhere" in the wilds of Northwest Arkansas. Rocio Romero designed the home, model LVL, and incorporated our custom modifications. GC Don Lourie is doing the build and architect Brad Satterwhite is providing additional ingenuity.

R-19 and Counting

The faux walls are up and insulated with Johns Manville formaldehyde-free fiberglass batt. Kraft paper backing was removed to reduce the probability of mold issues. We plan to use a soy-based spray insulation inside the interior walls bringing the R value well over 20 (35+ for some walls). The minimum for our area is R-11. The roof will get the same treatment with 1" of insulation where the insulating roof board is thicker and 3" where the board tapers for drainage on the east side (back).
