    I will use the old regular wrap 2" R6.7, pulled to R5 or 6. I have used bubble wrap with the 1" strips for the air space in the past. I just don't care for it.

    Looks like fun.


    This is going to be extremely nit pickey but ....

    on the new duct you have laying there, I like to put the damper blade, when fully open, with the airflow in the duct main (parallel to the main). It just eliminates any potential for airflow restriction.

    Thats all I got

    Access to the damper handle is way more important than the blade position.

    Just me

    I know everyone has their own way of doing things but, i never like to put collers that close to the end. you need back pressure i like to stay 2-3 feet off the end again just my other than that duct work looks verry neat clean and crisp

    Nice duct. No R8? Thats code for unconditioned spaces in my area.
