I inspected this 1970 built A frame yesterday, and it appears to have no insulation between the roof and the interior. Does anyone have any knowledge of how these A frame
Most were heated with wood stoves (not so much with fireplaces), and in such a small A-frame, the heat build-up would be almost unbearable, so no insulation needed.
This is a common way to insulate with exposed rafters.
Agree with both @jjonas and @sbridges2 . More than likely no insulation installed on a 1970 build, but heating would be no problem. Cooling by AC may be, just has to work harder. In later year builds, insulation like Scott points out were/are being applied. Problem is, more than likely, you won’t see it.
True Scott, and a picture of the ceiling could help all of us out more
This is what I envisioned that 1970’s A-frame to basically look like… (only shorter and smaller and not so fancy).
That thing is a mess, insulation might be the least of their worries lol.
“A” Frame like that one (the original before the 97 additions) were usually built as summer or wekkender homes and often were shut down in tthe winter. Usually there was no insulation installed in the roofing system.
Yes they will definitely need deep pockets and long arms to fund this restoration!! The only reason they want it is the literally stunning view; it’s steps to the ocean.
A diamond in the rough. I can understand the attraction!
Vancouver, the lot is probably worth a million or more.
