attic project, part 2

Since Jake was at the grandparent's today, Brian and I spent the day working on our on-going attic project. We*** inserted baffles in order to keep the insulation off of the roof deck and to improve ventilation for the soffits we previously installed (see attic project, part 1 for details). We also tripled our available storage space by putting more flooring down in the eaves.

So, half of the attic is now completed. We're slated to do the other half next month. Of course, the other half will be a bigger pain because there's more stuff stored in that part. And to make it even more of a challenge, there's ductwork and pipes running all over the place.

At least the job went quickly. It probably only took 3 to 3 1/2 hours, which is better than I would have guessed. Either way, I'm still beat. I could really use a nap right about now, but we're off to pick up Jake soon, so I guess I can forget about that idea. At least I'll get an extra hour of sleep tonight--don't forget to turn back those clocks!

***When I say 'we', I mean Brian. He got to roll around in insulation all day, while I mostly handed him stuff. But, he wasn't complaining. Some help is better than no help, I guess.
