Thanks for the framing pic!
Question: Will you be going with spray insulation (closed or open cell) or traditional fiberglass/batts ?
Were you planning (future) to use space above garage for storage or living? Consider noise of garage doors and R value of the garage (insulated doors, E rated windows..)
Though I hear nothing good from owners of additions with skylights (leaking, hail...), using outside lighting (domes/skylights or even dormers) makes a difference for roominess and lighting. Or heck, that large roof could be home to a PV array!
The second floor isn't being finished yet so no insulation. I'll be going back next year and doing bats myself most likely. We're planning to use that room as an office/den/man cave type thing once it's finished. For now it's going to be storage so all the 'junk' my wife has in the basement will move above the garage. This way we'll get the 1,208 sq. ft. finished basement back! That means I get my pool table.
I bought these quiet garage door openers already for the project. The city expects the permit to be approved Friday and the contractor is shooting for Wednesday to demo the existing 1 car garage. I'm going to finish cleaning the garage this week-end and I'll take pictures of the empty garage before demo.
