Chad and I started the thermal wrap these past two weekends. This 4-inch barrier stands 4 feet back from the tire wall and insulates this area. Plastic is attached to the outside of the insulation boards as a vapor barrier to keep moisture out of the house.
|First we laid plastic down behind the tire wall.|
|We connected two 2" thick insulation boards for 4" of insulation.|
|We started standing the insulation boards up and backfilled the area.|
|Notice the plastic hanging down from the board on the outside.|
|We insulated the cooling tubes in this inner-area so as not to warm the cool air that will be coming through them.|
|Done for now!|
