Attic Insulation Photo Album: Insulation Upgrade in Brighton
The symptoms of the problem were that the Fireplace Den was 5-10 degrees colder/warmer than the rest of the house depending on the season. The problem was caused by not having the exterior top plates air sealed, previous blown fiberglass was not blown all the way to the eave and the vertical wall inside the garage that was adjacent to the attic of the Fireplace Den was insulated with a loose fill of fiberglass that had settled.
