Project Profile. Blown-In-Blanket (BIBS)
A homeowner located in Northern Minnesota (between Walker and Longville) lake country was looking for an energy efficient insulation solution for their custom lake home. The design consisted of a large vaulted great room flanked by bedrooms on either side. With harsh Northern Minnesota winters this project called for a custom insulation package consisting of spray foam and fiberglass insulation. After meeting the homeowner on site and discussing various options (open cell spray foam, closed cell spray foam, fiberglass batts, blown fiberglass) the decision was made to install R23 BIBS (dense blown fiberglass) in the exterior walls, R50 blown fiberglass in the flat ceilings, and the vented vaulted roof was sprayed with a R44 closed cell foam. Lastly, Kinzler crews spray foamed headers and other miscellaneous areas with closed cell foam.
