Did they spray the insulation all of the way up to the roof peak? and under the floors in the crawlspace?

That is some great insulation and I am glad that you have it nice and thick! Here at the Army camps in Korea, they have sprayed the outsides of the 1950's style quonset huts with it and painted over it to keep the sun off of it as the foam is photo-reactive. It has made the barracks rooms for senior enlisted and offices(and a couple of the churches) comfortable in winter with the same small heaters as they have always had. DH was here 22 years ago and had things freeze solid in his room and office. My camera is in the states right now with DH or I would take a pic. for you - it really looks odd Big Grin ~♫Only in Korea ♫♪~

June it will go up to the roof peak and just before we are ready to move in they will come back and spray the crawspace after all the plumbing lines & wires are finished ill get some more pictures tomorrow .

Cheryl, I would think it is because those are metal buildings and the metal would heat up from the sun and cook the inside and be so cold from the winter snows and ice it would be hard to heep heated. Thumb of 2011-03-25/mekos/49fa47
