  1. Hey here I read your post on Homeone and also find link to your blog here. After see your house ceiling and wall use Bradford Gold R3.5 just wonder what's R rate you use for interal wall studs? As we build with Coral homes and they use Bradford Gold R2.5 for ceiling and R1.5 for external wall. I think that quiet low rate. Also atm i want to add insulation for internal wall too but not sure what's R rate to go ? Many thanks

  2. Hi xiaoyi.
    Rawson provided wall 2.0 and ceiling 3.5 batts as standard. I think both are adequate, with my current house being 1.5 wall and 2.5 ceiling. I'm yet to experience the extra insulation ( clearly) , but the current house insulation is quite comfortable.
