My Attic Buildout

The attic is a real pain to get dialed in I think unless you build the house yourself. Which just happens to be my case! Below are some pics of the buildout. The ENTIRE house was framed in with Tech Shield. It's a radiant barrier that radiates 85% of the suns heat. I then blew foam in throughout the ceiling in the attic. This all equals to R60 in the attic and R24 throughout the rest of the house. I live in the deep south and it can be 100 degrees outside and it doesn't get above 80 in the attic with NO A/C yet!! It's beyond awesome. And I'm suspecting that FLIR will have a tough time picking up anything. Here are the pics.

This is a picture from when you walk into the attic door. There are two large rooms. The bathroom, the dry and cure room, and in the back is the veg room.


Picture in the second large room. Bathroom is to the right. To the immediate left is the dry and cure room, and that entry way in the back is the veg room.


The veg room. Notice the dummy walls. It says cool in there too! I could only get half of it in the picture.


Insulation in the dummy walls.


I'll post some more pictures tonight. The sheet rock is up and getting floated and the ventilation system is in.

No doubt, probably the most thought out attic setup I've seen thus far.

How much was it for that blow-in insulation?

Very nice. 80F temps in the summer sounds great for an attic.
Good Luck.

That is a very nice space you have. I love attic grows. Far superior to anything else as long as you have the money and the know how. That area is going to be oh so easy to control climate in. I envy you.

I rent and already had a finished attic but insulation is poor and it's all plaster and lathing to boot. Must have been fun to do all that from scratch.

That is going to be one bad ass space to grow in.

That's starting to look like one great attic for growing. Keep up the good work

Have you ever thought of lining it with rigid insulation? It wouldn't be all that hard to do and you could take the insulation with you when you leave.
