Re: Crawl Space Insulation

In the soffit areas go below the existing insulation. Above the bedroom area would ideally be insulated as well. Be a difficult area to put batts in, perhaps blown in cellulose.

OK -- I don't understand this recommendation then. What are you suggesting based on your assumption?

Reference Erietech's last illustration where he denotes "crawl space insulation". The two lines he drew for that insulation and rafter insulation bisect in a soffit area. I suggested taking his rafter insulation below the top of the crawl space insulation into the soffit area.

If he had soffit vents he would want to install insulation channels first before insulating. No vents so moot point, filling in any infiltration area with insulation is ideal.
