It’s winter time in Portland and getting cold quickly. To continue making this ADU feel like a warm and inviting ‘nest’ the next step was to keep the interior warm. Insulation! To keep the project small and green focused, I decided to use a type of recycled wool blend insulation called EcoBatt. It’s used and recommended for schools and hospitals because its formaldehyde-free and is a LEED certified product.
We worked with the guys at JB Insulation to get this little house buttoned-up.

Once the insulation is up it really DOES feel like being inside a nest.
Another big step forward was the arrival and installation of the garage door. It’s a manual operation but adjusted to open and close easily so that I can operate it. The hardware and tracks along the ceiling will remain exposed in the finished space.
Things are moving along and I am excited to see the next phase as the sheetrock gets installed!
