Another Day in the Attic

Here is the old attic fan from the seventies. Hot air leaks through it's louvers and heats the upstairs of the house.
Cut out in the attic deck for the fan shown. Only the louvers remain.
The next picture shows radiant barrier foil placed in over the louvers. 
This will reflect any heat from moving into the attic during the heating season.  

First layer of batt insulation in place. Kraft paper face down.

 Top layer of batt insulation.

Rigid insulation put in place. I will seal around the rigid foam with spray foam to prevent any airflow from occurring.

Eventually the louvers will be removed also and dry wall will be added to repair the ceiling. But that's later on.
