I am experimenting with a rye cover crop this winter. I have been having trouble with nematodes this year and heard that the rye will trap them and they die. I also bought beneficial nematodes to help as well.

To get the insulation to adhere to the vertical wall, we applied heavy duty double stick tape. This worked like a charm, as long as it wasn't up too long on a very hot day.
Below, I am cutting out the space for a window. This takes all lot of measuring and allowing a little leeway for adjustments around the window.
|I found it much easier to wait until we put the Tyvek up, to cut out for the Windows.|
One thing I should mention here is the value of scaffolding. It is not a cheap item, but it makes for a safe working environment. We were able to do work we could not have done on the end of a ladder. I did call around and checked on Craig's list for used scaffolding. I checked on the Internet and found Scaffold Store at WWW.scaffoldstore.com they carry commercial grade scaffolding. We found them to be less expensive than what we could find used. We have been so thankful for this equipment and know we will use it on all our building projects.
