Half of our living room ceiling is gone!!

We tore down the drywall and Kimsul insulation in half of our living room this weekend! I can't express how refreshing it is to know it's out of the house and won't ever come back!! That insulation reeked and because it disintegrated as it fell to the ground, it transformed into a dust storm which overtook our house so the smell still lingers (as does the other half of the ceiling).
The tearing down was most definitely the easy part. It's the picking up the dusty trash and the vacuuming and the dragging of the contractor bags to the garage that kills. The insulating goes quickly too.

That is a fantastic idea... we love out T&G ceilings and would do the same thing in your situation.

I had that same kimsul insulation! I can remember that stench like it was yesterday. This should definately help your moisture problem, not to mention your heating bill. Keep up the good work, let me know if you have any question or need any help.
