"Ken, I couldn't agree more; bungalows, Craftsmen, and American Foursquares are some of my favorite homes to work on (I'm a little jealous as I couldn't dream of finding a house like this in San Diego at the price they…"

"Griffin,   It looks like tar paper above the skip sheeting, so when you tear off the old roof you'll have nothing over top of the skip sheeting.  If indeed you want to have the existing rafters/skip sheeting now be the…"

"Bud, I just talked to her, and the roof is about 15-20 years old now. So that's good news. I'm now heavily leaning towards recommending they replace the roof considering what's at stake. Like you said, it would be a shame to miss the…"

"Hi Charles. Yes, I think I'm going to recommend they tear off the old roof and talk with the engineer and architect about building up/out. They have so much to gain (more headroom and thermal bridge elimination, as you pointed out, as well as…"

"Jaime, Thanks for your reply. That certainly seems to be the simplest, quickest, and maybe R-value solution, and one they did ask me about. However, I'm hesitant about spraying foam on skip sheathing for a couple reasons: it seems like…"

"  That's some nice looking existiing wood, and not a lot of headroom;  maybe they should consider tearing off the old roof, adding some stained plywood or other, then re-rafter above the old roof with 2 x ?.  You could then dense…"

"I'm not sure what I'm missing, perhaps it's that I work exclusively in the multifamily sector, but couldn't you just apply a two-part high density foam insulation and be done with it? The high R-value of the spray foam will more…"

"Griffin, That's a gorgeous attic! To my eye, the bungalow is a beautify style that can accommodate high performance discretely.  The only aspect of this building that looks less solid (visually) and a little inconsistent is the roof…"

"I can't really tell from the picture, but it would be a shame to go through all of this with a 30 year old roof up there.  Especially with the benefits that go along with changing it now. As the old saying goes, you work from the…"

"Hi Griffin, You definitely have a project there and as most undertakings like this go, it will cost twice whatever you estimate.  Understanding that you may have already covered these bases I will still list some thoughts for you. Being almost…"

"Really good points, Matthew. One thing I still wonder about in your second scenario, though: when envelope tightening measures cause a mechanical system with lots of usable life to becomes egregiously oversized. Is there realistically a point where…"
