We have started Demo!

We have begun the demo! Exciting stuff. 2 days of taking off peg board, removing and selling the air compressor that was in the ceiling. Hey... I made $200 that can be used toward the ADU!

There is R-13 in the walls. I am assuming it could be filled with additional Batt insulation to boost the rating to R-21. But I think it is likely best to go with R-21 from the get go. Perhaps the R-13 could be re-purposed and sold for a low price to someone on Craigslist?

The studs at 2X4. They need to be 2X6 to meet the space necessary for R-21. I heard about people staggering in some way to make it more insulating? Or, add another board on top of the 2X4's to create the right size?
