There is another way to do this to not lose the vault:

1. remove the existing batting, sister each rafter with the following: a 1
X 2 laid on end and if you (for some strange reason ) want exposed beams
or have 2X6s as your rafters, then sister with 2X0s or with 2X12s to EVERY
OTHER RAFTER and do the following

A. sister with the larger 2 bys if you want exposed beams.
B. attach 1x2s or 2x2s to each sistered rafter
C. attach attic foil Ibright side facing the roof ) to the edges of each
1x2, that depth will allow for air circulation, and the foil will radiate
heat in the summer and help conserve in the winter
D. attach bat insulation to the shorter rafter (2X6. 2x4 or 2x8, after you
do this, you will have the larger rafter handing down (the sistered 2x10
or 2x12-)

E. drywall the spaces inbetween the larger 2 bys., you will be left with
skinny sides of the 2 by's hanging won (about 3-5 inches depending on what
you sistered the orignals with, be sure to mud and finish then prime and
paint the dry wall what ever color you want your ceiling to be

F. on both sides of the 2 bys handing down, hot glue 2 inch thick ridged
insulation, this will look silly but do it this will give the faux beam
extra width

G. after all are glued, then prepare your 1X4s (stain them or paint of seal
ahead of time--you will need them for the sides and the bottom

H. Beginning with the bottom center the 1X4 and attach along the edge of
the exposed exposed rafter, then predrill holes in the sides and attach
the prepared 1X4s to the sides

you will end up with faux box beams, caullk--you are done

You should be able to use this method on existing vaulted ceilings whether
wood or metal roofed provided you have stick framed or wood framed rafters
to begin with, be sure to use real attic foil with the bubbles and be sure
to place the foil side UP towards the roof.

the 1X2s are there to provide the necessary air space for the foil and for
roof ventilation, the batting should be the thickest the rafter can handle,
DO NOT allow the batting to be so thick that it forces the foil to the
underside of the roof.

The foil should stretch taut across the 1X2s on either side of each rafter
and the batting should be attached to the lesser rafters.

THIS is a way to do a preexiisting roof and should provide both insulation
and protection from moisture later-- due to the ventilation and "air
pocked" in each rafter void.

I've worked in many ceiling spaces over the years, installing home theater,
lighting control and intruder alarm systems. I HATE this kind of
insulation, with a passion. It covers everything, so you have to feel your
way around, making installations very slow. Also, it tends to settle after
a while, reducing the air pockets and the effectiveness.

Cathedral ceiling is where there is no airspace left between the insulation
(usually batted) and the roof. Vaulted is where it is sloped, but still
some roof to walk/crawl above, inside the attic.

Author Corey Binford (3 years)
Hey Jgspeer, Yeah there's plenty of baffles running from the eave to a
ridge vent. Before I added the insulation I reached down through each
rafter bay as far as I could to connect the new baffles with the existing
ones. This allows air to flow through and remove heat and humidity.

Great videos! I've been browsing all of them and enjoying seeing your
creative approaches to common challenges. I'm going to insulating a 22'
high vaulted ceiling at my cottage this year but it's unfinished so I'll be
able to use Roxul mineral wool batts that mice tend to leave along, at
least compared to blown in material or fiberglass batts. I'll add vent
strips and make a small attic space like you did in this clip and then vent
it front to back and along the soffits. Should keep me busy!

Cellulose... I can smell it just be thinking about it. Fiberglass is much
better to blow in my opinion.

Author Joshua Speer (3 years)
Nice vid man. I believe it's called cathedral if it has a peak and comes
back down the other side. To be real technical there is supposed to be a
throne on the floor just below the peak. hehe :) Vaulted is where it only
slopes up from one side from what i've understood. The reason I'm
commenting was, I wanted to ask you, if there's an air space for your roof
sheathing to breath and keep from overheating.
