At GreenHomes, we spend a lot of time in attics–because attics need a lot attention! We talk a lot here about air-sealing and insulating attics. In addition to hazards suchs as electrical, suspect insulation, and falling through the ceiling, we run into a myriad of scary things. We had a DIYer talking about dead birds. And here’s a shot passed along by Syracuse Advisor Bill Meadows of an enormous wasps’ nest in the attic of a recent project. I’m sure glad this project included redecking the roof so that there was easier access to this monstrosity.
Be safe up there!
