    That is what I plan to do. Here is the foam board I will be using. It has an r value of 7.7, I will use two which will bring it to 15.4, Not bad for a wall I guess. Thanks to all r-tech-rigid-insulation-310891-64_1000.jpg

    2D2A7045-1ADA-45FF-B187-F1CDB13FEE77.jpeg Yea, R value is not that good on the foam board, but it’s costing me less than $100 to run for the entire year, so not that much money on the table to save. That’s with our Placer County 100 degree summers, with the AC kicking on 6 months out of the year 69 degrees on, 65 degrees off.

    This is what I used. I think you can see it in the background, if not I’ll take a pic tonight, if there is interest. C0F1B76F-6489-421E-9E43-99D9E49F9879.jpeg

    Is that not the same stuff I am using?I knew it wasn't the best but I read where you do not want to use roll insulation when cooling down that low.
