Attic -- Phase I and II

Here are the before and after pics of the attic. I pulled out all of the old stuff, and put down two new layers. I will post additional pics after I cut the hole and install the vent fan in the roof and wire up the house fan to a switch down on the first floor.

Previous Insulation, check out the antenna and bathroom fan venting to the gable brilliant design by previous owners...

After pulling old insulation out, at the southwest end of house

52 bags of old insulation being put out with garbage two at a time, you do the math...

Pic of two new layers before finishing, with the vent fan now venting to the exhaust fan through roof, for now

Hopefully it works, and the the upstairs feels a bit warmer these days but more importantly, the bathroom vent isn't venting moisture into the attic.
