In the end you're left with what, 3 metres of space, and 2 metres of walking space. That's 5 metres of attic. Also, insulating the floor isn't gonna make the attic any warmer.

Catherine Fitzgerald: Hello, I see that you did not put any venting in. Should this also be done?

Pooop Me: Was the house already air sealed? This seems like BS to me. Sales video for Insulation companies.
