comment Insulation options for narrow ceiling space
I had loose natural wool blown into the space today covering all the spaces between the rafters and ceiling, so leaving lots of room still for air circulation.

comment Insulation options for narrow ceiling space
I have a fairly high stud, of 1.7m, so I guess creating a floating ceiling sandwiched with some insulation might be feasible, but not sure how expensive that might be.

I have a small unused solar hot air collector. I wonder if I could use that to pump hot air into the ceiling space to keep it under positive pressure, and dry, after I insulate the ceilings.

This site buildingscience.com/documents/insights/bsi-043-dont-be-dense seems to suggest that dense packing of unventilated flat roof cavities does not work unless you first remove the ceilings to install an air impermeable membrane.

I'm in Zone 2 dbh.govt.nz/quick-energy-guide and it says R value of 2.9 for roof insulation.

comment Can I have underfloor heating with solid oak floor?
Are you using metal spreaders to spread the heat between the joists, and did you insulate underneath the piping?
