    Default Attic Insulation

    I need to add insulation to my attic. It currently on has only r-19. The difficult part is I have no attic access or space. The majority of my attic area is a shed roof with 6" clearance at the low end to 18" at the high end.
    Does anyone have any idea other than removing the entire ceiling to add insulation to the attic?

    Can you remove some siding, preferably from the end with 18" of clearance?

    The low end is the eave of the dormer, the high end marries the the main ridge.

    create an attic hatch so you can get up there. hatches are required by code any way in case of a fire so that firefighters can get up in the attic
    fire up the saw and make some dust
