    Yeah, vermiculite is fucking miserable. Iím half tempted just to have the entire thing cleaned out and start over. If only I were made of money.

    The situation with the vapor barrier is already there. I think itís wrong and needs to go, but I could be wrong. The thing I definitely know I shouldnít do is add anything on top of it.

    As for air sealing. Iím probably going to chase down every singe penetration, but there are a handful that really need attention and wonít be challenging.

    Interestingly, I ran into some vermiculite in a 1950's home recently. The owner insisted it had tested no asbestos, but the house had a broken open "Zonolite" bag right there in the attic. That's the shit that came right out of Libby and had a class action trust established for it. To file a claim they request a picture of a zonolite bag if found.

    Well, the last two posts have certainly got my attention. Like I said, I donít really want to screw around with it if I donít have to.

    Itís been tested multiple times, at least once by prior owners and by me prior to purchase. Non asbestos containing both times for the results I have.

    Maybe Iíll just pull a sample and send it to the Zonolite trust and see what comes back.

    Just peel the craft paper. Then lay new batts crossways over those.

    It’s not that complicated.

    The right faucet wrench often comes with the faucet. Any chance the previous owner or the plumber left one lying around somewhere? Piece of plastic tubing with a socket end. Normally you would use that before the water line was attached. The basin wrench can work around the water line.

    Let me go remeasure the piece.

    It's 41 1/2 x20", measured from the pointy tip to the base and widest side to side, not including the crappy frame shown.

    I'd pay $100 for the proper sized frame. It's the one aperture that I haven't framed in, so it's holding up the #dreamshack.

    The hole in the #dreamshack framing where it will go is 48x36", so the frame has to be that or smaller.

    while it's not nothing, vacuuming out the insulation shouldn't be prohibitively expensive...get a bid or two
    (I wouldn't do it myself either)

    yes, the kraft paper is problematic, whatever the level it occupies in that sandwich
    it's not an emergency, but don't put it off for years either

    Are you planning on filling in the void area with clear glass and solder in to make a rectangle ?

    No, just mounting it in a rectangular window.

    Anyone know a good roofing company in SLC? This need will be for a metal roof that needs stoppers/bars added to an existing roof (what are they called?) to prevent snow sliding down and crushing me as I enter work. I could be wrong, but based on my roof design they will have to drill through it so I'd rather use someone recommended even though it seems like a basic job to me.

    If I might add to this.

    The messmers is quality material and fairly easy to apply. The sikkens is top quality and may be a tad finicky to work with iirc. The payoff is that sikkens produces an A+ finish if applied properly. Messmers can be A- with less attention to details.
    Gonna be one fine looking fence tho.

    How much fence and how do you plan to apply the goods?

    If you use Cetol and there's some left over, store it in the smallest can possible so there's no air in there, otherwise it'll turn into gel.

    We'd used Cabot on the cedar sided house we had. Stuff smells like gasoline, but the siding looked like new after 15 years.
