Exterior Wall Insulation

So, under the subfloor (which itself will be a form of insulation) we're going to run some 1 inch styrofoam insulation at the edges of the house. The radiant floor school of thought is have a total of 20 inches of insulation (combining the horizontal and vertical runs) so in the middle level of the house, we're going to do 4 up and 16 out. We still have about 3 full sheets (8'x4') of this foam board from over-estimating the yurt floor insulation, so we're using that.
Melissa does a good job fitting this stuff using a kitchen serated knife.

Starting anti-fire prep

Well, we never really stop.  But, took a picture of today's raking below the yurt.  Every year I work to get a bit wider swath cleared....
