comment How can I improve the insulation in the lower attic space?
Thanks for all the info. I think the foil-backed board in your attic is rated for exposure whereas the sample foam board I purchased (similar to the board you linked to) is not. It has big warning about how it should not be exposed. Whether or not that's allowable in the crawl space seems to be a matter of debate.

Did you worry about any fire hazards the foam board might cause? Do you know the material?

Thanks @Jason, I think we will put foam board over the batts in the lower attic. Do you know what type of baffles you have to vent from the lower attic to the upper attic? A 10' pre-fab baffle would be perfect, but those don't seem to exist.

To make sure I understand you correctly, you have bats along the rafters of your lower attic with a foam board sealing them in? Is it a problem if the bats already have a vapor barrier?
