Cellulose Insulation Installation

- Part 2: Cellulose Insulation Installation
- Contractor Rick Davenport demonstrates the installation of wet-spray cellulose insulation. Jets of water moisten the insulation as it leaves the blower hose nozzle, then the damp cellulose sticks to the studs and sheathing, filling the wall cavity.
- Part 3: Hip Roof Framing
Bob Vila transforms a California beach house on stilts into an elegant Spanish-style villa, worthy of its glamorous location—Malibu. Projects include an elegant winding staircase, a state-of-the-art sprinkler system, environmentally friendly blown-in cellulose insulation, and seismic code compliance.
