I bought an old home. There is new blown in insulation on the floor of the attic. The attic will not be a bedroom BUT will eventually be a kid's playroom. My plan is this:
Build a subfloor over the blown in insulation. Put batts between the joists under the roof. Put drywall up on the underside of the roof so the kids don't see or touch the insulation.
It won't be anything special - thick plywood floors with a rug and unfinished drywall for the roof (building a very short wall from the roof down to the floor so I don't have to drywall into the corners where the roof and floor meet.
But I keep reading that you're not suppose to put insulation under/against the roof. There are no leaks, it's a relatively new roof. I want to put some insulation along the ceiling/walls of the play area because we are in an area that will get cold and hot enough that kids won't want to be up there.
But what are my options if I keep reading about not putting it against the roof? And do I need to leave a gap for the soffits if I do this?
