We have just purchased an Old Victorian home in Georgia and the house is about 150 years old.Since we are remodeling,we would like to insulate it as it has none.I would like to know if the fire retardent wet insulation is a good idea since we are taking all the plaster off the walls.The house has seven fireplaces and three chimneys,do you use it next to the fireplaces? Any help with these questions would greatly appreciated.I know you are suppose to put up a moisture barrier before the drywall,after the insulation.I am in a spot and confused about which is the best solution regular or blown.I saw *** **** melt a penny on this stuff with a blow torch and it didn't burn.Since the house is mostly sap infused pine,any fire retardent is welcomed.Thank You.
