I tore down an old back kitchen on my first home, about 40 yrs ago, and discovered why it held the heat so well, even though it was a hundred years old and supposedly never insulated. As i ripped down the interior lath and plaster; i discovered around 500 lbs. Of dry dog food , solidly packed between all the studs!
The room had been used to store dog food, for years, and the neighborhood mice had been stealing and storing for quite some time, by the looks of it.there was probably 200 lbs. Of the stuff spread throughout the attic, as well. I wonder what the " r " value of dog food is?..
Anybody else have any unique discoveries to share with us?
I’d like to hear about them.
