May I ask where you purchased your spray foam from? That looks like the perfect option for me as well.

Directly from them, I also found a $5 off coupon online. The shipping was $130 but it turned out to be $50 bucks less than amazon.

After setting, how thick is it?
What was the total cost?

$700 Well I focused more so below the window and that is full so about 2". The ceiling I wasn't to concerned about and have an 1" same with the front bulk head. The rear bulk head other than the lower panel that will have foam board, has around 3" on the bulkhead and 2"-2.5" on the ceiling and walls around the rear.

Reason for doing so heat rises and cold air sink I want to be efficient when running the AC. Also we will sleep in the back so hopefully that will help. I am debating on if I will put up reflectix on the ceiling but definitely will be putting in some insulation in the front bulk head to help with noise.

I also went back around the next day and used 10 cans of great stuff to touch up some spots. So technically $740

Wow! That red oak is going to look really nice! Are you sealing between the boards or letting the insulation handle that ?

Should make for a warm ceiling in winter and block a lot of heat in summer

Thank you!! No we are folding up reflectix and puting it between the foam and flooring.

I was going to add silicone to the board and rib but it seems quite solid. Going to give it a little test run up and down the street before more goes in. Just to test it to determine.

Looking good on that insulation and love that red oak. Did you get one of the 1000sf foam packages to spray it that deep?
