In reply to Insulating my attic... by BobK on January 11th, 2002 09:23 AM [Go to top of thread]

Hi BobK,

1) RE: The insulation around the attic lights - Depending on the fixture, it's quite possible you may NOT be 'allowed' to 'cover' the fixtures (in the attic) w/insulation. It could be a fire hazard. If you can get the identification info off of the 'can', you can take that info w/you to any electrical supply house for guidance. At the same time, ask them if there's a way to insulate AROUND, and possibly over, the can w/o causing a fire hazard. Yes, the insulation can catch fire as can the drywall board ...

2) RE: The attic stairs - You can build something yourself. I use to have a bookmark to a site w/free plans but it's no longer a usable site. BUT, you can look at this and see if you can 'copy' it. Attic Stair Cover

My best to ya an dhope this helps.
