Default Re: Curing before final insulation plus rain?

I'm trying one place in town here that may have rock wool, mineral wool. I am a little nervous though that I might end up with fiberglass which I know is a no-no. The different names used for this stuff doesn't help!

Since your going igloo, I'd stick with the FB style blankets. They'll be easier to form to the dome and thinner against the dome. I'd have to check, but I think the blankets are about 2x the R-Value. Sometimes Mo-Money is Mo-Betta.

You can always use 4 inches of 12:1 Vermiculite/perlite to portland cement for the insulation.

Went ahead and ordered the blankets from McGills so I guess were going that direction!

Now, does anyone have any tips for stucco in the Midwest?

I've only done flat work, but if you search around you'll find some great work.

Best to you and yours!
